Jeff Mauro, Susie Jimenez, Vic "Vegas" Moea
After 11 weeks, numerous cooking and camera challenges and the ultimate pilot presentations the newest Food Network Star has been named. But first, the pool had to be reduced by one. Their penultimate challenge is to make and present the best dish of their lives.
Jeff Mauro brings an eggplant parmesan sandwich to the table, Susie Jimenez presents carnitas with cactus side salad and Vic Moea whips up a hearty zuppe de pesce.
"It was the scariest time of my life," Patti Stanger told reporters recently about diving back into the dating scene.

Working Title Films is moving forward with a third installment to the Bridget Jones films, which are based on the novels by Helen Fielding, EW reports.
Tyler Florence, Great Food Truck Race
The Great Food Truck Race revs up for its second season on Sunday (10/9c on Food Network). This time, everything's bigger (well, maybe not host Tyler Florence: Eight trucks (one more than last season) will compete for $100,000, which is double the prize money from the show's first outing.
The mobile food purveyors will start in Malibu, Calif., then try their hand at selling to the crowds in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, a little town called Manhattan in Kansas, Memphis, Atlanta and finally end up in Miami. Now that the competitors have had a chance to see the first season of The Great Food Truck Race, it'll be interesting to see if they've learned about marketing and resourcefulness as part of their food-selling strategy.
Food Network Star
After nearly a dozen weeks of competition, the latest Food Network Star will be crowned on Sunday at 9/8c. But who deserves to invade our homes on a regular basis to help fill our tummies? Let's take a look at the finalists:
Relax, ThunderCats fans. Panthro isn't dead. "I noticed a little bit of a rumor about that," Kevin Michael Richardson, who voices Panthro in the Cartoon Network remake, tells TVGuide.com. "Someone said that on Facebook, and I was like, 'Really?'
When ThunderCats made its triumphant return to television in July, fans were outraged that Panthro, an integral part of the original '80s-era ThunderCats team, was absent without a satisfactory explanation. In the reboot, Panthro is first reported to be killed in action. Later, a false Panthro is revealed to actually be the evil Mumm-Ra in disguise. After all of this misdirection, it's a relief to know that we'll see the real Panthro back, however briefly, on Friday's episode (8:30/7:30c on Cartoon Network).
Marko Germar, Sasha Mallory, Melanie Moore and Tadd Gadduang
This is the final test: Marko, Melanie, Sasha and Tadd performed their last dances Wednesday night to prove that they should be America's Favorite Dancer. So You Think You Can Dance also welcomed Katie Holmes and choreographer Kenny Ortega (High School Musical trilogy, Dirty Dancing) to the judges table. Let's get to it:
Melanie and Marko, disco
Choreographer: Doriana Sanchez
Song: "I Feel Love," Donna Summer
It's a sparkle fest as Marko channels his inner John Travolta while wearing white. The lifts are impressive, but the energy is subdued and strange. Melanie has the right attitude, but...
Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York
Between the coven on True Blood and The CW's upcoming teen witch drama, The Secret Circle, don't we have enough witches on TV? CBS thinks not.
