Tonight In Food TV: Paula Deen On Food Network Star And The BBQ Pitmasters Finale

Now that we’re officially in the deep heat of summer (because everyone knows June is just a soft opening), the Food TV Gods are cranking up the heat to keep up. First, on Food Network Star, the remaining celeb chefs-to-be travel to Miami to cook on the beach for an infamous Southern family: THE DEENS. Paula mistakes Justin for Elvis, and, really, are we surprised? Meanwhile, someone didn’t properly de-shell their crab, and someone else has Paula choking on their spices. One of the Deen daughters-in-law even refuses to allow her child to eat a dish. Check out the preview clip below and then tune in to Food Network Star at 9:00pm ET on Food Network.

Also, in honor of our BFF Myron Mixon‘s BBQ Pitmasters being greenlit for a fourth season on Destination America, the network is airing an all-day BBQ Pitmasters Season 3 Marathon, beginning at 11:00 am ET, culminating in the Season 3 cook-off finale at 9:00pm ET. (Yes, we know, you’ll have to double up your DVR to catch this and FNS. Order in some pulled pork and deal with it.) Each week’s winner will compete in the winner-take-all finale tonight for the grand prize of $50,000, a spot in the Kingsford Invitational, and the title of BBQ Pitmasters Grand Champion. Check out the season’s sizzle reel below and tune into Destination America to catch the marathon while lamped out in front of your A/C today.
