Will this episode bring out a new side of Brad?

Things are heating up, folks. Just seven finalists left. Not long to go before one of them has a new show premiering on Food Network. So why’s our usually-too-serious boy next door Brad playing dress-up with a pink boa?

It promises to be a fun episode. Tune in on Sunday at 9 pm/8c and head to our virtual Star Lounge to chat live with us during the show. Our favorite Kid in a Candy Store, Star veteran Adam Gertler, will be back by popular demand.

After the show, head over to Cooking Channel to join in on the first official Next Food Network Star: After Party at 11pm/10c. Rehash all the details with Adam, Cooking for Real’s Sunny Anderson and Season 4 finalist Kelsey Nixon. They'll chat with finalists and judges and get you the juicy inside dish on all things Star.

Guess which of them heats things up early by telling the finalists: "If you guys can't cook, you'll be gone, no doubt about it"? (A matter of seconds into this clip and you'll get the answer.)
  • Shooting for this season was in Los Angeles, not New York; we Chelsea Market fans are a wee bit wistful but like the cool-kid approach to cooking West Coasties seem to have. Laid-back vibes, however, do not mean the stress level in the kitchens will be any lower.
  • This year’s secret ingredient: Giada’s in the mix. But you’ll have to watch to see what she’s up to. Ok, so I’m teasing. Shamelessly. Read on...
