The Next Food Network Star 2009 - S05E07 - Red Lobster Battle on the Beach - Promo Trailer
On tonight's episode of The Next Food Network Star, the four remaining contestants are told that they must do live demos for a Miami morning television show. The challenge then is to keep their cool when things start to fall apart during their segments - it's live television after all.
Also, Bobby Flay, Iron Chef Michael Symon and Red Lobster's Senior Executives Chef Michael LaDuke surprise the finalists when they tell them that they need to participate in an Iron Chef-style challenge. They are given access to a lavish seafood pantry, and must survive a beachside wood-grilling challenge.
After undergoing the ultimate surf-and-turn battle, the winner's recipe will be prepared over Red Lobster's wood grills and served to guests nationwide. And as with all Next Food Network Star episodes, another finalist is eliminated.
Previously on The Next Food Network Star, flamboyant "global a go-go" chef Michael Proietti was sent packing when he unwisely told the judges that again he couldn't deal speaking directly to the camera, which proved to be his downfall. This after the finalists catered a Miami cocktail party as a team. All of them also completed at least two hors d'oeuvres and created a signature cocktail as a group.
The four remaining finalists are California restaurant consultant Debbie Lee, George personal chef Jamika Pessoa, California restaurant owner and chef Jeffrey Saad, and full-time mom Melissa D'Arabian. Most critics predict a Jeffrey-Melissa showdown in the final two.
