Pilot Ambitions

Just last week, Dom, Eddie and Jay worked with Rachael Ray in New York City to shoot the pilots of their would-be shows on Food Network. While each of the guys struggled at various moments of their tapings, they all managed to finish strong, and Bob told them, "Rachael said that it went great." For the first time tonight, the group will screen these pilots, then it will be up to the Committee to select a Star among them.
