Caption It: A Look Back at the Season’s Best Moments

by in Food Network Star, July 20, 2012

Think back to this season’s Food Network Star premiere. For the first time, we were introduced to Team Alton’s quirky cast of characters, Team’s Giada’s little family unit and Team Bobby’s batch of no-nonsense cooks. Robert Irvine stopped by to present the first challenge, a Restaurant: Impossible-style mission that tasked the teams with opening their own restaurants on a limited budget. There were even on-stage acrobatics in that episode, thanks to Team Giada’s Josh, who began his presentation with an over-the-top somersault. It wasn't even long ago, but a whole lot has happened to those initial 15 finalists since then.

As you get ready to watch this Sunday’s finale episode and find out who you, the fans, picked to be our next Food Network Star, take a look back at where it all started. Find out more about Team Alton, Team Giada and Team Bobby and re-watch past full episodes or catch up on any that you missed. Hear from eliminated finalists, get exclusive interviews with guest judges, the mentors and more and flip through our photo gallery of the season’s most memorable moments.

Don't forget to check out the final four contenders’ pilot videos — on Sunday one of them will become Food Network’s newest show.

Before you tune in to the finale this Sunday at 9pm/8c, we’re challenging you, Star fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this retrospective moment in the comments below.

    Finally, a winner who is interesting! Sorry, but Michelle was just plain scary. Who would have ever watched her?

    Don't know what those voters were thinking. Food network is on in my house every day but it will never be with a show starring Justin. It was hard to look at him for a few minutes doing the last 11 weeks of the show. A whole 1/2 hour or hour would be impossible. Either of the other 2 would have been a much better choice!

  8. Jerilee says:

    Just want to congratulate Justin for the win. Also good luck to the non winners and of those, the ones we will see on FN (or Cooking Channel) in the future.

    Justin shouldn't have won. It should have been Martie or Yvan
