‘Next Food Network Star’ Winner: America To Pick Between Rodney Henry, Russell Jackson & Demaris Phillips
The Next Food Network Star victor will be determined by America this season and not by the established Food Network star judges – Giada De Laurentis, Bobby Flay and Alton Brown.
The final three contestants remaining in the competition are Rodney Henry, Russell Jackson and Demaris Phillips. They’ve each filmed a pilot episode that, should they win, will kick off their themed show on the Food Network.
Rodney’s show will be called Pie Style and will follow the self-proclaimed pie-man to restaurants where he’ll whip up a pie out of the ingredients used in their signature dish.
Phillips’ Eat, Date, Love show will be aimed at men who want to woo a woman with their skills in the kitchen.
Guilty Pleasures would be the name of Russell’s Food Network show. If picked, he’ll be heading to establishments week after week to make their most decadent dishes even more sinful.
Voting for the Next Food Network star ends the morning of Wednesday, Aug. 7. The winner will be announced when the show airs on the Food Network Sunday, Aug. 11 at 9/8c.
