* BadassBaritone




to:

* NotQuiteDead: Returns in "Pushing for a Pilot" after winning ''Star Salvation,'' though he goes home within the same episode. For what it's worth, the judges ''do'' compliment on his improvement since he'd been cut.

to:

* BerserkButton: When Bobby comments in "Guilty Pleasure Dinner" that her chocolate chip cookie wasn't "chocolatey" enough, she's visually offended and responds by saying she's sold thousands of those cookies. Despite Bobby actually being pretty lenient on his criticism, Erin perceives it as him calling her a bad baker, which she responds to with uncharacteristic haughtiness.
* BreakTheCutie: Her elimination is not the easiest thing to watch. See BerserkButton above.




to:

* KarmaHoudini: Ana should ''not'' be one of the final four contestants. As the others point out in "Tiki Takeover," the two women who partnered with her in past challenges were eliminated the same week. Sure enough, her partner during that particular episode, Joy, is sent home after their presentation goes poorly. Ana is not a bad cook, but she comes across so awkwardly that she ends up weighing down whoever is with her and gets by on her food alone despite being on the bottom more times than any of her fellow contestants.




to:

* OhCrap: Can be seen making this face several times throughout "Tiki Takeover" just because he can't stand working with frozen foods.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Frozen Food?]]: Damiano specializes in fresh ingredients, which puts him on the bottom when he fails to do frozen foods justice.


Added DiffLines:

* CaptainObvious: Has a tendency to state things that the viewer is already well aware of. For example, the first challenge of "Guilty Pleasure Dinner" allows the contestants who describe their ideal dish the best to have first pick over the part of the dinner they get to cook.
-->'''Jernard:''' It's important for me to do well in this challenge so I'll get the ability to choose first.
* HurricaneOfEuphemisms: Being the "Chef of Love," Jernard tends to include light sexual undertones when describing his food. He actually goes too far in "Guilty Pleasure Dinner" and ends up in the bottom three.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: Can certainly come across this way. While most contestants offer a balance of positive and negative insight on each other's methods, Tregaye almost always has something harsh or arrogant to say. Throughout "Tiki Takeover," the way she gloats over the other contestants in the first challenge also gets pretty annoying.

!!Eddie Jackson
* LovableJock: Former college football player turned professional chef and ''Food Network Star'' Season 11 winner.




to:

* BadLiar: Whenever the challenge dictates she should make something she wouldn't normally eat, she has a ''very'' hard time selling it to the judges. She even said while presenting a dish that its quality was "to be determined."


Added DiffLines:

* HighSchoolSweethearts: Mentions that she met her husband back in high school and they've been happily married since.

to:

* SmugSnake: Believed himself to be the best of the contestants, and while he was admittedly a good cook, this attitude is what ultimately costed him. When the deciding vote between the judges was 2 to 1 in favor of eliminating Sita, Matthew's smug smile is what changed Giada's mind and sent him home.




to:

* InSeriesNickname: The self proclaimed "Chef of Love."

to:

* NotQuiteDead: Wins his way through ''Star Salvation'' and shoots a pilot for the finale. After he doesn't get it, he battles it out with other former contestants to get a spot in season 12's lineup, but barely loses to Martita.

!!Rodney Henry
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: In one particular challenge where the contestants become each other's judges, Rodney uses the word "killer" to describe three of the four dishes he judges. Outside of this challenge, you'll find him throwing it around pretty loosely.




to:

!!Matthew Grunwald
* {{Hypocrite}}: In the first episode, he's very quick to deal out criticisms of his contestants' first impressions. His turns out to be probably the most awkward of all of them.
* {{Jerkass}}: Constantly talking about how he's a better chef than all the other contestants and disregards the judges advice. This behavior ultimately proves to be the deciding factor in his quick elimination.
* LargeHam: Seems as if he's trying to open his mouth as wide as he can when he talks.

!!Dominick "Dom" Tesoreiri
* {{Adorkable}}: Most likely comes across this way because of his crippling fear of being in front of the camera.

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyForeigner: Unlike the previous years' primarily foreign contestants, Damiano is actually a contender.

!!Monterey Salka
* {{Adorkable}}: When she gets nervous, her true, awkward geek self comes out.

* SitcomArchNemesis: Seems to be heading this way with Nikki.

to:

* SitcomArchNemesis: Seems Seemed to be have been heading this that way with Nikki.



* SitcomArchNemesis: Focus seemed to be going this way in episode two, but Danushka's early elimination in episode three doesn't allow for much more exploration.

!!Erin Campbell
* {{Adorkable}}: Always smiling and geeks out quite frequently.

!!Ana Quincoces
* BuxomIsBetter: One of her excuses for not being super energetic on-camera is because she doesn't want "boobs flying everywhere." Bobby encourages it.
* FemmeFatale: Resorts to flirting with WebVideo/RhettAndLink during their challenge to appeal to the camera.

!!Damiano Carrara
* MrFanservice: Hunky Italian chef with a thick accent. Can be seen several times throughout the series to be winning over female crowds rather easily

!!Rob Burmeister
* BigFun: One of his biggest skills is a natural ability to "bro out" onscreen.
* NiceGuy: Seemed really fun and nice all around.
** GentleGiant

!!Jernard Wells
* BigFun: Arguably the most charismatic of the contestants.

!!Joy Thompson
* MotorMouth: Has a tendency to occasionally go off on a story that has little to do with what she's supposed to be talking about and never quite get back to the main point.

!!Tregaye Fraser
* SassyBlackWoman: A pretty noticeable example.

!!Yaku Moton-Spruill
* GentleGiant: According to the show's official wensite, Yaku's six feet and nine inches tall. He's also one of the nicest contestants.
