After 11 weeks of camera challenges, timed cooking tasks and seemingly unending competition pressure, one finalist will be shining the brightest — and Food Network's newest Star will be crowned. It's then that the winner will be part of the Food Network family, ready to begin the job of a lifetime. Recently Star Talk caught up with current Food Network chefs, the very people who occupy the job all 12 finalists are vying for, to find out what it's like to live and work as a Food Network star. "Expect to work incredibly hard, much harder than you've ever worked in your life," Duff Goldman, a premier pastry chef and a co-host of Kids Baking Championship, advises the future winner. Bobby Flay, too, is quick to note that the role is, above all else, "a job, and it's not just this glamorous moment."
