Every week, Star Talk will give readers an insider's look at what goes down on the set of Food Network Star — from the judges to the contestants to the environments in which they cook and present.

    Me too. Looking forward to it. Saw the commercial on tv. Gonna be 100 people there. That oughta test their organization, time management and ability to put out quality-under-pressure. I'm sure other challenges will be different, too. No one will be perfect in all of them. Should be a fun time.

    Where can I find a time for the episodes to "re-run"? I don't know why they have so much DDD, and not any of these episodes running. Don't get me wrong, I love Guy.
