Because Wikipedia deletes the season before on its page every season. Dates are from when the episodes first appeared on Food Network. The show was shot between January and February 2008.

GARZA WAS ROBBED.
Oh, sorry, personal bias. Carry on.
Food Network ran out of lame titles until 2009, I guess.
The remaining frat do demos on the 30 Minute Meals stage. Aaron wins. His win is about as anticlimactic as Whitney Thompson's win on ANTM Cycle 10. And probably about as memorable.
I blame JetBlue for my earlier gaffe.
Because Timetoast is a pain in my ass.
E! Online reports that TNFNS amassed 3.2 viewers as opposed to the 2.9 million viewers that watched the Project Runway premiere. However, more people watched America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance last week. Do NOT hassle the Hoff. Or Mary Murphy.
The contestants create bad promos and okay food for a bevy of workers on the Strip only to be shipped back to NYC to create "pilots."
Food Network cross-promotes Throwdown with Bobby Flay @ Caesar's Palace. Kelsey is cut. Mormons and the Internet at large get highly upset about her elimination.
Rachael Ray plugs her charity Yum-o on this show as well as her talk show. Shane is cut. He still gets the Charles Atlas Seal of Approval!
That marathon was so awesome! Didn't you like the part where Fatima said "Go home, bitch! Now!"...no, wait...but didn't Joey Chestnut win this season already?...no...
I can understand if you're America's Next Top Model or So You Think You Can Dance. But this is ridiculous.
Shane finally wins a challenge because at least Cat Cora can see his brilliance. The contestants screw up meals for your least favorite favorite favorite food magazine at a now-closed NYC restaurant. Jennifer is cut.
Kelsey is Tyler Florence's "expert" in a cooking demo challenge which serious foodies and cooks would discourage at all costs. She also has a dish that Red Lobster steals for its menu. Nipa and her narrow views on Bollywood is cut.
Despite not having a visual eye in anything that he does, Adam wins the potato demo and Lisa wins the Martha Stewart-approved condiment challenge. Jeffrey is unreasonably cut.
The team of Adam, Jennifer and Aaron win a bizarre food knowledge/ingredient challenge. Lisa and Aaron win a challenge on a train. Robert Irvine dug himself further in a hole.
The contestants meet each other and Sir Dick himself, Alton Brown, and do a demo for him. Then Aaron and Kelsey win over various Food Network "stars," including Sandra Lee. Cory, despite her visibility from Last Comic Standing, is cut.
3.2 million...but not more than the 3.5 million that watched Discovery Channel's "Greatest Catch."
"It’s January 17, the first day of shooting this season of The Next Food Network Star." Autoblogged posts are my friend. I also enjoy very bad writing.
