The four finalists get their chance to pitch a show to Food Network. Executives Bob Tuschman and Susie Fogelson are back to choose the final three: Based on the finalists’ presentations, Bob and Susie will greenlight three concepts, which will be made into pilots directed by season two Food Network Star winner Guy Fieri.
A Food Network Star must be able to offer tips and solutions for any culinary situation. Guest Robert Irvine leads the finalists on an “impossible” challenge: They must rehabilitate failing or outdated dishes on a restaurant’s menu. The least successful finalist is sent home.
