Food Network Star Finale Tonight aka Justin Warner Winner Party

Tonight, the season finale of Food Network Star will air, and the season 8 winner will be revealed.  The episode will feature never before seen footage of the season as well as some of everyone's favorite moments.  I do not have any insider info or anything, but this poll has Justin Warner receiving a whopping 70% of the about 300 votes.  Also, by looking at Twitter, all other finalists went home after the filming of the finale (in case you didn't know, the finale was taped this week and is not live).  So, I have no doubts that Justin Warner will be the winner of Food Network Star Season 8.  I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Also on tap for tonight is a special episode of Chopped featuring past Food Network Star winners: Melissa d’Arabian, Amy Finley, Jeff Mauro, and Aarti Sequeira.  Also, instead of the normal Chopped judges, Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis and Alton Brown will be judging the contestants.

After the finale, the first episode of Chopped: Grill Masters will air, so a pretty big schedule tonight for the Food Network.  8pm - Chopped with Food Network Stars, 9pm - Food Network Star Finale, and 10pm Chopped - Grill Masters.

UPDATE:  As predicted, Justin Warner was the winner of Food Network Star 2012 Season 8.  More to follow.

Also, if you were wondering, Aarti Sequeira won the special episode of Chopped.

UPDATE 7/24 - Our Poll had Justin receiving 66% of the votes.  Justin revealed on Twitter that he received 2.5 million of the 4.5 million votes, which is 56% of the vote.  I would say the statistics experiment worked to determine Food Network Star's voting results.
