A new season of Food Network Star 2015 kicks off in one week and the contestants on Food Network Star Season 11 have been announced! This is such a fun show and I loved watching Lenny McNab win Season 10. Now it is time for the new finalists on Food Network Star 2015 enter the competition and see if they can be the winner of Food Network Star Season 11 and get their own show on Food Network! Check out the Food Network Star Season 11 finalists below in our Food Network Star 2015 spoilers.

We have gotten used to Giada De Laurentiis, Bobby Flay and Alton Brown as the judges, but it looks like no Alton Brown this season, at least as a weekly judge. We all know that all three of them have gone through divorces these past few months, so how ironic is that???

The challenges will kickoff in Los Angeles with the finalists having to create a 30-second introductory video and create their signature dish at a food festival. We will also see intense food truck challenges, a Fourth of July-themed challenge and many more.

This season will also feature a bunch of special guests/judges including Food Network personalities Sunny Anderson, Richard Blais, Anne Burrell, Melissa d’Arabian, Bobby Deen, Duff Goldman, Alex Guarnaschelli, Katie Lee, Jeff Mauro, Damaris Phillips, Rachael Ray, Geoffrey Zakarian and comedian David Alan Grier.

With all this excitement, let’s meet the 12 finalists on Food Network Star Season 11! Here you go:

  • Alex McCoy from Washington, D.C.
  • Arnold Myint from Nashville
  • Christina Fitzgerald from St. Louis
  • Dominick Tesoriero from Staten Island, NY
