4th of July Live
Food Network Stars are required to think on their feet and react to any situation thrown at them, especially live television events. The finalists cook with special guest Terrence Jenkins, co-anchor of E! News, in a live cooking demo where each contestant faces a series of untimely curveballs. The winner of this challenge gets an advantage in the next one, as the finalists participate in a Fourth of July-themed show designed to help viewers with must-have recipes and tips for summer parties. Each finalist is assigned a different live post such as barbequing, crafting drinks, or reporting from the field, and they must tackle their task while fielding interactive elements such as video calls, web questions and tweets. Bob Tuschman, accompanied by Bobby and Giada, watch the action remotely through a live feed and determine who will continue on.
