The Next Food Network Star

Yes, J and I are addicted to the Next Food Network Star. This is totally our crack. With the exception of the elimination of Brook in hte first episode, we've been delighted with the judges' choice of bootee. I did say that there was no God i the evil blonde Harmony went all the way. But she got kicked out in the second episode and order in the universe was restored. The crazy, Greg Bradyish Mike and the incompetent "Reuben Studdard" Eric were both very satisfying bootees. So now that it's down to the final four, what is our assessment? The one sentence answer is - "anyone but Suzanne."

Suzanne - I hate her. I hate her Rachael Ray perkiness and I hate her I'm just a Mom schtick. Fine. You're a Mom. That doesn't make you any less annoying. And guess what you're on the FOOD Network. From your constant harping on the 87 pounds you lost and your constant talk about "good" foods and "bad" foods, we can tell you hate food. Or at least eating.

Deborah - Inoffensive. That's all I can say. While she can is competent tv personality, she's way too actressy for my taste. She's the Paige Davis of this competition.

Dan and Steve - I just heard...THEY'RE GAY. And they can't shut up about it. I find them to be fairly competent when demoing the cooking but if they "show their personalities" they end up looking cheesy. The judges got it right on this one. Cutesy.

Hans - My favorite to win. Low key, knowledgable, and smart. I like his 20 second mushroom piece where he talked about the qualities of different mushrooms. It was great to hear how the actual mushrooms would fit into the cooking.
