I’ve just had time to read all the comments from FNGate, and I had a thought. I know it’s late on Friday afternoon and everybody else is at The Monk, but I’m still working. Anywhoo, When the contestants signed on to participate on the Next Food Network Star, they had to sign some pretty tough confidentially agreements to ensure a surprise ending to the series. If any one of them had too many margaritas and blown the story line, they could have been liable for actual damages and/or the damages set forth in the confidentially agreement. I heard from a reliable source, that if they blabbed, it would cost ‘em a $1million.
So, riddle me this Batfans, what do the producers of the show owe to the contestants when they blow the deal. OK, Aaron’s set, he’s got a new TV show. But what if Adam had been in negotiations with a group of investors that wanted to resurrect The Smoking Joint (his failed restaurant)? What if Lisa was just getting ready to sign a $10 million contract to play Dr. Spock’s long-lost love child in Star Trek: The Trouble With Baked Tribbles? What if they lost those deals? It could happen. Any legal minds out there care to help me here? It’s going to be a long weekend. Cook long and gossip.
