Advertisements Oh. My. Gawd. I've been dying for this version since the show started!! Although the first round of four losing contestants from the last season of The Next Food Network Star wasn't really what I'd call "Food Network Stars" ... it was still a blast to watch. It was also the first time I've seen a chef LEAVE OFF THREE BASKET INGREDIENTS!!! And still be loved by one of the judges. I can't wait for upcoming rounds where some of the Chopped judges get to reverse roles.
