    My vote is for Guy He's a pleasure to look at-great smile and tv presence.makes you believe you can cook anything he shows you, he makes you feel like you're sitting in the kitchen next to him..his food looks good enough to just want to try it out yourself…His confidence is so second nature you just trust him..He actually looks like he enjoys eating food. So many other cooks look like they never eat anything but celery

    I'm torn between when Guy won or this year as the best. Out of all the seasons Guy was my favorite wanna-be Food Network Star. This season I think it's Jeff. Out of the last 3 contenders I'll be really disappointed if he doesn't win. I"m excited to see how the end of the season pans out.

    Vic Vegas should be the clear winner. Totally dig the style and like the fact that he looks like he would knock you over on the street but is probably one of the most polite, well spoken individuals on this season. Watched a little bit of the previous seasons but this one I have watched all episodes. The other 2 are good, like the culture of Suzie and Jeff has made some awesome looking sandwiches, but between the 3 if I were flipping channels and saw Vic on FN, I'd stop and watch.

      People, they're asking which season you like best and not which of the current contestants you like best. Please read the story first.

    Melissa is my fav! It's been so awesome to see her from the start. Knowing that every day people with a dream to connect with people through food can really make it is awesome. I love seeing her do her thing on the Food Network! :)Melissa is my fav! It's been so awesome to see her from the start.

    oops! technical difficulties.

    The sandwich guy is most obviously the most TV worthy. However, Suzie is an amazing talent that has something to teach Americans about food that a large portion of our population enjoys daily and what the rest of us can definitely learn from. Traditional Mexican food is a treasure that not enough of us truely have a sense of and, in this fast food age, we need to back to the basics. We are now in an age that has a taste for the salty and sweet, we need exposure to a healthy version if that basic taste. Let's go with what we need to learn.

    It can't be last season when that blogger won that can't cook anything. Did the judges have a brain fart? My favorite is this season.

    This season of Food Network Star is my favorite of the last three seasons that I have seen. It's my favorite because the contestants are all so very different, with distinctly different POV's and food.
    I enjoyed watching the ups and downs Jyll had, in addition to all the drama Penny created. Each episode builds to a great cresendo when I get to hear the judges speak. I enjoy their comments and learn so much about what they truly expect and are looking for in the next Food Network Star. I especially like to hear Bobby Flay speak, since I greatly respect his cooking skills and experience. If Bobby says the food is good, then it's good! In my opinion, Food Network Star is by far the most exciting show on television! I can hardly wait to see who wins!

    I think my favorite season would have to be when Guy Fieri won. He had the making of a food network star and has done extremely well since then. I love to watch any show that Guy is on and love to travel to places that he has visited. I own several of his DVD's and his cookbooks.

    I do hope that Jeff wins this season though. He is a delight to watch and my favorite things to make are sandwiches, so I definately would watch his show.
