The 1st year of Thanksgiving Live had Ted Allen, Alex Guarnaschelli, Rachael Ray, Anne Burrell, Sunny Anderson, Melissa d'Arabian and Bobby Flay with Alton Brown hosting. The 2nd year of Thanksgiving Live had Sunny Anderson, Giada De Laurentiis, Ree Drummond, Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, Alex Guarnaschelli, and Aarón Sanchez and was also hosted by Alton Brown.
This year they seemed to have trimmed the number of people down with the Food Network only advertising Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, and Ina Garten with Alton Brown hosting. So, basically the Food Network Star judges plus Ina Garten. Guy Fieri will be busy throwing his 'Trailer Park' Thanksgiving elsewhere.
If you are interested in having a question answered, you can leave it in the comments of this post on the Food Network site. You can also submit questions by using Twitter and the hashtag #ThanksgivingLive. Most questions asked can easily be Googled, but for some reason, people seem to like to get basic questions answered by Food Network personalities.
Will anyone drink too much and slip up on live TV (The west coast will not get the pleasure of seeing that)? Will Bobby Flay talk about having chicken broth/stock on hand over and over? Will Ina get have rapport with the Food Network Star trio? Tune in to find out.
Also, as previously covered here, there is a Google Hangout with Jeff Mauro, Sunny Anderson, Katie Lee, and Marcela Valladolid immediately following the Thanksgiving Live to help promote their new talk show.
