In May 2012, Martin was chosen as a contestant on Food Network Star, season 8; she was mentored by Bobby Flay. She originally used the tagline “girl-on-grill”, but because Food Network president Bob Tuschman found the double entendre to be too risqué, she subsequently started calling herself “the grill next door”. Martin was eliminated from the show on July 15.
