A Star is Chopped
A Food Network Star must have the knowledge and ability to use a wide range of ingredients and be able to take any combination to new culinary heights. Each of the ten remaining finalists is given an exotic ingredient and under Alton and Bobby’s guidance, must identify and use their ingredient successfully in a dish. The top two win a seat at the judge's table in the next challenge, while their competitors battle it out in the kitchen, Chopped-style. The eight finalists compete and make a dish with four mystery basket ingredients, to be critiqued by Chopped judge Alex Guarnaschelli. The least successful competitor hits the road, and the remaining nine finalists continue their journey.
