We don’t know about you guys, but we’re total suckers for a good cooking competition. When done right, it’s the perfect blend of high-stakes competition, seriously tough challenges, delicious-looking food and, of course, a dash of drama. And Food Network Star has it all — plus two hosts with some real chemistry. Don’t believe us? Go watch a bloopers reel of Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay; we’ll wait.
When all is said and done and a winner is crowned, if you’re anything like us, you likely reach for your phone the second the finale ends, typing “what’s (season winner name) doing now” or “(season winner name) Instagram” in the Google search bar to figure out what they’ve been up to since filming wrapped. We’re here to tell you there’s no shame in looking up every single winner from past seasons, either.
So, to make things easier, we did the work for you. Before Season 14 premieres at 9/8c on June 10, catch up on what every Food Network Star winner has done since nabbing that coveted title.
