Caption It: Smiley Side-Eye

by in Food Network Star, June 20, 2014

Food Network Star, Season 10Food Network Star is all about the finalists' abilities to put their best faces forward, both on camera and in the kitchen. But sometimes, perhaps on account of competition stress, contestant rivalries or simple daydreaming, hopefuls may let down their guards just long enough to show glimmers of their true personalities when off set and relaxed.

In the above sneak-peek photo from Sunday's all-new episode, Emma is seen giving serious side-eye with a nervous-looking smile, while nearby finalists watch what's going down in front of them. Has something offstage caught Emma's eye, or is she trying to enliven the group with a silly expression? What could her face be telling, and do you think other contestants will join her in amusement?

Before you tune in to the next episode this Sunday at 9|8c to find out what's going on here, we’re challenging you, Star fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this moment in the comments below.

Don't miss Food Network Star on Sunday at 9|8c.

    The main things I'd want in a cooking show host are can s/he cook, does s/he communicate what s/he's cooking in a compelling way, and does s/he come across as genuine. What I saw were groups of contestants thrown together for the purpose of plugging candy. Even allowing that social media play a role these days, the setup was unrealistic in the extreme.

    I'd love to have had the three judges compete as a fourth team, though.

    Tonight's episode was the WORST ever I have seen on the Food Network Channel! How dare Gialda, Elton Brown & Bobby Fly support or produce or make these contestant participate in the the worst episode ever! Let us see Gialda, Elton & Bobby strap on Payday candy shirtless! Never seen this on Iron Chief! How unprofessional on a famous TV Food Network capital channel in the world! How ridiculous can you get on a professional cooking channel? This was so bizarre & unacceptable in the cooking industry! Apologizes Please & bring back cooking, cooking & teaching how to be a cook food network star! And, please bring back Alanda! I was so disappointed! This was my favorite TV show! What happen to professionalism, not making fun of or laughing at the contestants from so-called professionals: Gialda, elton& Bobby. I have totally lost respect for them and the food network show channel! So disappointed & so, so sad! Now trying to watch any show on the FNS is HARD!!!

    "I want off this island!" is what she's thinking. Reality t.v. takes a nosedive. There was no cooking, just applying a mustache to a candy bar…then someone ate it. That was the only thing put in anyone's mouth (that we know of) tonight in the way of food. Guy is already Guy, don't need another one…this show stinks so bad, we can smell it from Hawaii.

    Get rid of the blond Sarah - she's a phony & can't cook or act!

  6. Hard to tell. Loreal doesn't look worried. Fun to speculate. Another reason to tune-in & see what happens. :)
