Since 2005 Food Network has been giving a chance for show-host hopefuls to win their own show in a reality production called Food Network Star and this year is no different. Food Network Star will be returning to the viewers for the ninth season already this summer. The date to write down is June 2nd.
The show will return with twelve handpicked contestants and culinary icons Giada De Laurentiis, Bobby Flay and Alton Brown.
“Alton, Bobby and Giada are not only enduring stars, but also star-makers, so they are the ideal mentors to bring out the best in our talented cast,” said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network.
For the list of contestants be sure to check out www.foodnetwork.com/star. This website will also give you access for exclusive interviews, insider blogs, photo galleries and information about the personal lives of the finalists. You are also invited to connect with the show’s stars at facebook.com/foodnetwork.
As a new twist, this season fans will be able to vote on the contestants performances. Also, one eliminated contestant will get the chance to return and have another run at victory!
“These newcomers are competing to achieve their dream, and their journey is fascinating to watch,” Tuschman added.
The ultimate prize, the winner’s own show on Food Network, will find its recipient during the finale on August 11.
