Food Network Star Season 8 Upcoming Episodes

Next Food Network Star Season 8From looking at the upcoming episode guides of Food Network Star, it looks like there will be one elimination per week for the next four weeks.  In the show before the final, with 6 contestants still remaining,  "the finalists who survive the drastic and dramatic cut will get to make pilots for their show produced by their mentor."  And in the Finale, "Bobby, Alton and Giada each share their favorite moments and discuss why they think their finalist should win during an emotional look back at remaining finalists' journey to the finale."

So as many of us suspected, the eliminations will be very predictable going forward for a few weeks as the Food Network tries to keep the teams even, which is one downside to using the mentors this year.  It looks like each team will have 2 people left before the finals, and everyone will shoot a pilot.  Then after the pilot, the mentors will only be able to advance 1 person to the finale where America will vote, which makes the last weeks elimination 3 people.  It also looks like someone will win a $20,000 gift card from Target in one of the episodes.

 Episode Guides:

Episode 6 - Premiering Sunday, June 17th at 9pm ET/PT
“Iron Chef Food Court”
Ten finalists remain to compete for the title of Food Network Star, and in this week’s challenge, each finalist must elevate food court dishes to culinary masterpieces, while still using ingredients found in a kiosk. The pressure is on when contestants learn they’re cooking not only for 150 hungry shoppers, but also for Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian (Iron Chef America), who will reveal a secret ingredient they must incorporate into their dishes.



Episode 7 - Premiering Sunday, June 24th at 9pm ET/PT
“Meet the Press-ure”
Being a Food Network Star requires being natural in the face of the media spotlight. Finalists will be more exposed than ever as they film their own promotional video – without the support of their producers. A panel of journalists including Jess Cagle (Entertainment Weekly), Jill Bernstein (Entertainment Weekly), Christina McLarty (Entertainment Tonight) and Ed Levine (Serious Eats) grills each of the finalists with questions about their techniques, personal background and the show they want to bring to Food Network. Who can handle the journalists’ questions and who will crack under the pressure? The bottom three must face the Boardroom, and one finalist’s journey will be cut short.

Episode 8 - Premiering Sunday, July 1st at 9pm ET/PT
“Deen Family Beach Party”
The finalists head to Miami for the South Beach Wine and Food Festival where Paula Deen (Paula’s Best Dishes) is hosting a summer beach party for VIP guests. They must provide the food for the beachside occasion, and in addition to creating a dish for the party, they must also create a kid’s version to appease the youngsters in attendance. The finalists shop at Target for fun and stylish items to help bring their family beach party to life. The final eight also perform a 30-second "entertaining tip" on-camera which will be watched by the judging table, and whoever wins the challenge receives a $20,000 Target gift card.
