The winner is determined by Food Network alone this year and while commercials/advertisements of Food Network Star do not guarantee the winner getting a show, tonight's episode description states, "One winner is selected and will go on to shoot their very own show on Food Network!"
I will update this post once the winner is announced and will also update this with any information about the winner's show. Last year Eddie Jackson won, but his show was not like his pilot and he ended up hosting a BBQ competition show called BBQ Blitz.
Damiano Carrara was shockingly eliminated first, which left Jernard Wells and Tregaye Fraser as the final two. Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis decided that Tregaye Fraser was the winner of Food Network Star season 12. What do you think about the decision? It looks like she will be a co-host on The Kitchen Sink in the Fall, so she will join Jeff Mauro, Katie Lee, Marcela Valladolid, and Sunny Anderson on that show.
