Star Finalists' Snack Face-Off 04:23

Three Food Network Star finalists compete in a poolside snack battle.

Fresh off the past 10 weeks of culinary challenges and an intensive lesson in pilot-taping with Rachael Ray this week, the top three Food Network Star hopefuls stopped by The Kitchen this morning for — what else? — even more competition. Dom Tesoriero, Eddie Jackson and Jay Ducote joined the co-hosts on their all-new pool-party-themed show today, but they weren't there to simply relax in the sun. Jeff Mauro and Sunny Anderson put the guys to work in an epic three-way face-off for pool-snack glory.

On the menu was watermelon, and each of the finalists had just 30 seconds to put his signature spin on simple fruit-focused bites. While Dom opted to hollow out watermelon circles and fill the rounds with balsamic vinegar for a tangy bite, Eddie went the chip-and-dip route by making a salsa and Jay opted for a next-level caprese salad on a stick. Click the play button on the video above to see the guys in action.
