Look Who's Back: Meet the 7 Returning Rivals Competing on Comeback Kitchen
They. Are. Back. Seven previously ousted finalists from past seasons of Food Network Star have returned to the hallowed Food Star Kitchen for their second chance at stardom, and this time, with an entire season of competition behind them, they're more primed for success than ever.
Just as they were expected to combine stellar culinary chops with a knack for on-camera charm when they battled on Food Network Star the first time, so too will they have to demonstrate a mastery of these Star basics when they face off on Comeback Kitchen. Mentor-judges Tyler Florence and Valerie Bertinelli will have only the highest expectations for this crop of hopefuls, as they have just three short weeks to find a worthy contender among the cast — someone who can join the ranks of Food Network Star, Season 12 finalists and ultimately the race for the prize of Star.
Tune in to the premiere of Comeback Kitchen on Sunday, May 8 at 8|7c, and watch the Food Network Star, Season 12 premiere on Sunday, May 22 at 9|8c.
