Raise your hand if you're totally stoked for the Food Network Star Season 13 finale! Yeah, that's what we thought.
This season of The Food Network's competition show that pits aspiring celebrity chefs against each other in hopes of winning their own progra, might have been the craziest one yet. Fans were not happy when Cory Bahr got the boot in episode 8, but luckily Bahr redeemed himself in "Star Salvation" and will join Rusty Hamlin and Jason Smith to duke it out to win it all on the final show of the season on Aug. 13.
Watching our faves slowly get picked off of the show over the past couple weeks got us to thinking about all of the crazy characters from seasons past. We poked around to see what the winners of each season are up to and — surprise, surprise — not everyone turned out to be the star they were cracked up to be.
