Food Network's number one series, Food Network Star returns June 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with the most intense tests of talent and exciting guest stars steering the 15 finalists towards the ultimate dream job: his or her own Food Network show. With the drive to follow in the footsteps of their culinary idols, the finalists must first prove that they have the charisma and culinary prowess to the star-making selection committee: host and judge Bobby Flay, the judges’ newest addition Giada de Laurentiis and Food Network executives Bob Tuschman (General Manager/SVP, Programming and Production) and Susie Fogelson (Senior Vice President, Marketing, Creative Services & Brand Strategy). Season 7 challenges include: creating and advertising a unique food truck under the watchful eye of Tyler Florence; performing live on the Rachael Ray show; catering the Fourth of July All-American Food Festival hosted by Guy Fieri; competing head-to-head Iron Chef America-style in Kitchen Stadium; and preparing an on-set meal for the cast and crew of ABC’s Cougar Town. This idol-filled season also features the food industry’s biggest stars and culinary authorities, such as: Alton Brown, Anne Burrell, Scott Conant, Melissa D’Arabian, Paula Deen, Ina Garten, Duff Goldman, Robert Irvine, the Neelys, Wolfgang Puck, Rachael Ray and Michael Symon. Culinary competence and on-screen star potential will surely separate a true star from just another cook in the kitchen.
