The Pie Man, known in real life as Rodney Henry, announced on Facebook this afternoon that he will be competing on the ninth season of Food Network Star, which premieres at 9 p.m. on June 2.
"It's official. I'm going to be on Television," he wrote. "And this fool is representing. Check it out. Super fun and pretty darn wild."
The Food Network describes the show as a "life-changing competition," during which contenders have to do more than show off "advanced cooking chops or shining camera-ready smiles."
Rodney, pictured second from right, who has Dangerously Delicious Pies shops in Canton, D.C., and Detroit, will go against 11 other contestants. All have already appeared on food TV shows.
Competition mentors and judges include Alton Brown, Bobby Flay, and Giada De Laurentis.
Each week, a contestant will be eliminated until the finale, when fans will be able to vote live to determine who is the winner.
May the best man (Rodney) win!
