Ironically, the reason he is not producing the Next Food Network Star winner’s show, is because he will be filming the NEXT season of Next Food Network Star. He recently stated on Twitter that he was preparing a trip to L.A. for Food Network Star.
Also, Onset Productions is casting people to be on the show January 17th and January 19th, where you see Giada De Laurentiis, Bobby Flay, and Alton Brown will all be present. So it looks like they are going with the mentor approach again and will be using the same mentors. Hopefully for next season, the mentor can actually produce the winner’s show.
Here is the link for the casting descriptions (a focus group watching video presentations and a burger taster). So if you are in the Los Angeles area, check it out and let me know how it goes if you are picked.
