Food Network announced the winner of the tenth season of its “Food Network Star” in a combination reunion special/results show. Of the three finalists — Luca Della Casa, Nicole Gaffney and Lenny McNab — which one went home with the title?
Jersey Shore girl Gaffney was the first of the three finalists to be eliminated, but her fellow competitors rallied around the composed but clearly bummed out chef.
The remaining two competitors were two of the most outgoing personalities of the season, cowboy McNab and dreamy Italian Della Casa, who won the season’s “Star Salvation” web competition after being booted by the judges early on.
Ultimately it was outgoing cowboy McNab who managed to win the audience vote for his three-minute pilot.
Did the right chef win? Who do you think should have won?
