In this long-running competition series, 12 passionate Food Network Star hopefuls compete for the chance to have their very own Food Network show. Three culinary icons lead the charge to discover the best and brightest new faces in food television, Alton Brown, Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay. Each episode before the finale features a first-round Mentor Challenge, second-round Star Challenge and an elimination determined by the selection committee, including returning judges Food Network executives Susie Fogelson and Bob Tuschman. Tune in to find out who has the personality, on-camera charisma and kitchen chops to follow in their idols’ footsteps and helm their own Food Network show.
Raised in his mother's and grandmother's kitchens, Alton Brown worked as a cook throughout high school and college. But he never considered a career in food until—after a decade working as a cinematographer and video director—he realized that he spent all his time between shoots watching cooking shows, reading cookbooks and, yes, eating. Alton lives in Atlanta with his wife DeAnna, two worthless hound dogs and a beautiful daughter named Zoey.
Bobby Flay’s versatility is evident in the multiple talents he brings to the field as a chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and media personality.
Bobby fell into cooking at the age of 17 when he took a job at New York's Joe Allen restaurant. He so impressed the management that Joe Allen paid his tuition to the French Culinary Institute. But French cuisine was not to be Bobby's destiny. After restaurateur Jonathan Waxman introduced him to southwestern ingredients, Bobby — instantly drawn to indigenous American foods such as black and white beans, chilies and avocados — was determined to explore the possibilities of southwestern cuisine as an important and distinct culinary style for America.
Bobby works tirelessly to challenge the way Americans view and taste food – making it bold, zesty and always fun.

Giada is a private chef and caterer in Los Angeles and the founder of GDL Foods. Growing up in a large Italian family, Giada's passion for food was sparked as a child as she learned to prepare family recipes for their frequent gatherings. She became a professional chef after attending Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Paris. After working in a variety of Los Angeles restaurants, including Wolfgang Puck's Spago, Giada started her own business.
