Melissa d’Arabian, host of the popular budget-friendly series Ten Dollar Dinners, knows exactly how it feels to be a contestant on Food Network Star — she beat out thousands of hopefuls to claim the “Star” title in Season 5. Now, as she watches from her couch, she’s offering the new cast ten tips, or pieces of advice, on how to survive the season:

Head over to Food Network’s Star blog now to read Melissa’s top tips.
