The Next Food Network Star will feature some big changes when it returns Sunday for season 6 including the addition of Giada De Laurentiis as a mentor and a move to Los Angeles.
TVGuide.com recently sat down with host Bobby Flay for the scoop on the new season.
Regarding the addition of Giada, Bobby said, “We’re using Giada as a mentor figure, where she talks about her experiences being a host on a network, and that’s one more element we didn’t have before. Also, the Los Angeles piece has been really fun because it sort of has a Hollywood feel. And because the weather is always nice out there, we were able to utilize a lot of places in the Southern California area for challenges and events.”
