Eddie Jackson, The Next Food Network Star Season 11 Winner, has created the perfect combination of two of his greatest passions: food and fitness! After retiring from the NFL from numerous injuries, he took the time off from the countless hours of practice to spend with his friends and family and the easiest way to bring everyone together, the food. Eddie always felt at home on the field and even more in the kitchen. Whether being taught family recipes by his dad or grandma, or coming up with his own culinary creations influenced by his travels in the NFL he knew it was his way to share his love. It took just one taste from a close friend to sign Eddie up for Fox’s MasterChef Season 4 competition, to begin his culinary journey on the big screen. Eddie finished in the spot for top 6 before he returned home even more amped up to share his foodie love with the masses, and began his own food truck, the Caribbean Grill. The only thing more exciting than being crowned The Next Food Network Star is that he is able to share his journey with friends, family, and people who share a love for food with him in his newshow BBQ Blitz on The Food Network,
