    Default Who will be Food Network's next star?


    Hanging head... yes, I'm watching it. FoodTV recapped the first four
    shows on the 4th, so I caught up to speed and recorded last night's
    show to watch this morning.

    Oh, the twists and turns! Debbie and Michael were early favorites,
    but they started burning out in show #4. Michael was eliminated on
    the latest show. Melissa and Jeffrey were slow starters but they're
    finishing strong... the dark horse in this race is Jamika (the judges
    seem to like her in spite of her shortcomings).

    We're down to the final four... and it's a nail biter. Will Debbie
    survive the next round? Although the judges like her food, she's
    becoming redundant. Will Jeffery and Melissa be the final two? Will
    Jamika walk away with it after all?

    Oh, man... I'm perched on the edge of my recliner!

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    I can't watch the show. Between the "next star" shows, probably half a dozen
    out of nowhere cooks have gotten shows without judging.

    Did the Neelys compete? Did The Dean boys compete? Did that "Cooking for
    real" woman compete? Did the "Secrets of a restaurant chef," etc., compete?
    Did "Ask Aida" compete?

    How is is that Food TV can toss in a depressingly insultingly judged,
    competitive "next food TV star" program every other year and meanwhile sweep
    other cooks in the Food TV back door, unnoticed and unknown?

    Secrets of a Restaurant Chef sorta did compete. She was one of Mario
    Batali's assistants on Iron Chef America. I remember her for being able to
    turn out pasta from scratch -- making it look like there was nothing to it.
    Using whatever the ingredient of the day was, decorating with imbedded
    herbs, cutting into various shapes at speed. Purple, red, green, white,
    whatever.

    I like the show. Others don't.

    I've been rooting for Blonde Mom all along.

    Food network is an entertainment channel. They realize people seem to go
    gaga over american idol like dribble.

    I've watched it in the past but this year it's just not working for
    me.

    They are a broadcast operation, and they still do business the same way
    other satellite/cable channels do it. That means that they receive
    treatments and proposals, they are drawn to notice potentials who can
    cook or host or both, and they put together programs through
    "traditional" methods. The Neelys and Aida got the right bit of notice,
    and things developed from there. And Amy from Season three proves that
    you cannot depend on Next Star as the only source for new shows and
    talent.

    And at one time, even Bobby Flay was unknown.
