Get ready Food Network Star fans, the best part of summer is starting this Sunday.
In the exclusive clip above, De Laurentiis and Flay share secrets about each other, a look at the 13 new competitors (including the winner of Food Network Star: Comeback Kitchen) and a sneak peek at who will be making guest appearances.
Guest judges this season include several familiar faces like ESPN anchors Jemele Hill and Jaymee Sire, Sunny Anderson, Melissa d’Arabian, Anne Burrell, Josh Denny, Guy Fieri, Hannah Hart, Eddie Jackson, Sandra Lee, Sabin Lomac, Tiffani Thiessen, and Andrew Zimmern.
Chefs Robert Irvine and Monti Carlo will help determine the first competitor to be sent home.
“We have to get more creative with the type of challenges that we give them,” De Laurentiis says in the clip.

By the looks of the sneak peek, there will be no shortage of challenge as contestants are seen running around the kitchen and falling to the ground—sometimes to no avail. One bite even leaves De Laurentiis quipping “What the f—?” and pulling the food out of her mouth. “Are you guys trying to kill us?”
Watch the full clip above and catch the season premiere June 4 at 9 p.m. ET on Food Network.
