Good morning, Dishers. Check out that hot chick to the left. She is not just a hot chick, she is well-respected chef, Cat Cora, the first woman to win Iron–beat, beat, beat-Chef. I bring her up this morning because she was the celebrity judge on The Next Food Network Star last night. I’m not going to get into a blow-by-blow account of last nights show–all I have to say is this: goodbye and goodluck, Jen. One exit question, please. Whatever possessed you to slam a glass bottle of juice against the stove? That could be the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen on TV. You say, “Life is just a big book and I’m going to start a new chapter.” Here is my advice: Buy Joy of Cooking (interesting link) and read the first hundred pages.
But back to TV reality: Kudos to Lisa for bucking up to Jen’s screwup and staying calm. I have to say, episode 5 was the most boring of all. Aaron “Coke the Van” has no chance of becoming a TV personality, he can’t even talk. In my book it’s down to Lisa and Kelsey. And I give the nod to Lisa because when/if she wins, she can dress like Cat and look hot and maybe someone will watch the Food Network. (BTW, do Iron Chefs really buy this?)
