Three Star Mentors going against each other on Food Network Star

"These three iconic star/producers are ideal mentors for the talented hopefuls they found but its hard to say if the competition was more intense among the finalists or their three Star mentors," said Bob Tuschman from Food Network. He was of course talking about stars Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis who on May 13, are changing their role from being a judge to competing against each other and culinary favorite Alton Brown to find the next Food Network Star.

That's right, they will be competing against each other when Food Network Star Returns for Eighth Season with new interesting cast that has been hand-picked by the team leaders themselves. To make sure that you won't miss anything, tune in to Food Network on Saturday, May 12th at 9pm ET/PT for the Casting Special where you can see how the star-leaders hand-selected their teams and what made them choose these exact people.

The eighth season premier goes live the very next day, May 13, 9pm ET/PT and you better be prepared, the season premiere will be two hours long and the first challenge for the three teams will be to create their own pop-up restaurant from ground up with rather limited budget.
