We're just days away from the Food Network Star premiere, and while fans have already met the 12 hopefuls in a series of exclusive interviews and their casting videos, this Sunday will mark the first time they go head-to-head in battle. For the next 11 weeks, the rivals will be at the mercy of their mentors, superstars Alton BrownBobby Flay and  Giada De Laurentiiswho must decide the latest tests for Star and Mentor Challenges, and determine which competitors aren't worthy of a shot at stardom and must be sent home.

In the sneak-peek photo above from Sunday's brand-new episode, Bobby, Giada and Alton are taking in the Food Star Kitchen, surveying their surroundings and perhaps even dreaming up the next round of cook-offs for the finalists. As Giada smiles gleefully, Bobby looks on in wonderment and Alton strikes a classic questioning pose. What do you imagine they're saying to themselves, and what challenges could they be dreaming up for the premiere? Do you think their mentoring styles will match, or will one be notoriously more difficult to impress than the others?

Before you tune in to the premiere this Sunday at 9|8c to find out, we’re challenging you, Star fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this mentor moment in the comments below.
