Co-hosts Valerie Bertinelli and Tyler Florence return for a second season of ‘Food Network Star: Comeback Kitchen,” as seven former Food Network Star finalists battle it out against each other through three episodes to earn the thirteenth and final spot in the new season of Star. On the May 21st premiere, “Comeback Kitchen: A fresh Star(t),” Valerie and Tyler kick off the proceedings by identifying what kept each of the alumni from prevailing in their previous season.
Then, the competitors must each take on a retro dessert in desperate need of a comeback and shoot an Instagram video about their updated version. Duff Goldman joins Valerie and Tyler to help judge the results and one contestant will be eliminated. Over three episodes Valerie and Tyler test the returning competitors’ resolve to determine who will join the new batch of Food Network Star finalists.
