by in Food Network Star, May 23, 2013

Daniela Perez-ReyesYou heard it here first: Food Network Star is kicking off an all-new ninth season on Sunday, June 2 at 9pm/8c, and returning judge-mentors Alton BrownBobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis will be there at the helm. This year the mentors are tasking 12 hopefuls with weekly Mentor and Star Challenges in the ultimate multi-month interview for the chance to earn their dream television job: their own show on Food Network. While the contestants bring with them a mix of backgrounds — including culinary school, restaurant management, private chef and food blogging — they have but one dream, which is to become the next Food Network Star. From now until next month's premiere, Star Talk will introduce one finalist a day until you, Star fans, meet them on camera during the show.

Now living in Haleiwa, Hawaii, after being born and raised in Peru, Daniela Perez-Reyes, 29, is a graduate of The Art Institute at San Diego. She's currently the chef de cuisine for a catering company and is known for her signature sass in the kitchen, as well as for infusing classic Peruvian and Polynesian flavors into her food.

    She seemed ok and not so nervous as she said she was, well if she was uncomfortable then so be it but its all about how you bounce back and Im sure glad that her Chef endeavors will continue here in Hawaii. I will continue to support her at the restaurants she works at.
