    my family agrees well with your decision but my grandma wonder if you will give Jeffery a show because of his talent?


  2. LG_in_LA says:

    Susie – I think even tho Melissa won, you should do a show on Jeffrey anyways. Why not go ahead and do a show called "The Ingredient Smuggler" anyways? It would be a nice compliment to your stable of established stars. Jeffrey is so talented. Take a look at his recipe he made at home for his friends and family on finale night. It was amazing: Seared Scallops a la Saad.

  3. Joan W says:

    Are you REQUIRED to select a winner? Melissa is obnoxious and none of the last group of contestants were worthy of a show based both on culinary skills and personality.

  4. Pollyanna says:

    Well, it's all over. I'm glad that Melissa won, yet I am really sad that Jeffery lost. I liked both. The only problem with cooking shows is that they use spices and ingredients that I can't afford to buy so I guess it was better for Melissa to win. She seems like she uses things I might have in my kitchen pantry.

    I did like Jeffery, he was so calm and collected (well, most of the time ;-) he was easy to look at…. maybe you could still give him a show… a calm one, not a wild one like Adam got (althought it fits him).

    Well, 'noff said. Waiting for next year……..

    Dear Susie! I hoped until last minute Jeffrey is gonna win!!! I was so dissapointed, I cryed. Jeffrey is very unique, I like his personality and style,I would love to learn more about arabic and northafrican cuisine. We need more different nationality and culture on Food Network. I like Debbie very much too, there is no asian people on Food Network! I don't think i'am gonna watch Melissa's show, she seem fake to me and her recipes not unique,feel like I already knew them before I had so much fun to watch Jeffrey and Debbie! Maybe at least one of them deserve another chance? …
    Susie, I just want to say it is pleasure to watch you: you have a big heart, you are sensitive to another people needs and sometimes I can see tears in your eyes and it means a lot to me. And please,forgive my english, I was born and rise in Moscow,Russia and I live here only a few years and Food Network helped me not just learn how to cook but also how to speak english-when you see a chicken or butter or eggs, you know exactly what it is.Thanks again and please more people from all over the world on Food Network.

    someone tell me the name of the pastry Melissa made in Episode 8?

  7. Spiltmilk says:

    I assume that the "boarders" staying for supper.

  8. I genuinely enjoy looking through on this internet site , it contains superb content .

    When I first saw this title Ask Susie – Episode 8 | FN Dish – Food Network Blog on google I just whent and bookmark it. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read more things about it!

    I agree. What place does "racial" have to do with any of this? Seems to me that racial is usually brought into the picture when something is negative, and the racial card is played.
    I would love to see the show do a total reversal and bring back a couple of the contestants who were sent home for a final challenge duel. That might really be exciting

  11. ogomezmontes says:

    But should also have integrity.Debbie has shown she lacks it.One lie is passable but two shows in a row lying is too much.Also her Miami debacle and trying to blame everybody but herself is unforgivable for a tv program hostess.

  12. ogomezmontes says:

    Why my reply was deleted?.I told the truth.Debbie has no integrity.She has lied twice and blamed others for her missgivings.She should not have a program on tv.I personally will not watch her program.Period.

  13. SueAtkinson says:

    Good point-well said!

  14. Cheft says:

    There have been several post about the fact tha Jamkia was black and the network was predigest by not allowing a black to win this year, I tried to post, that it only had to to due with cooking skills and it did not matter, if your were from the north south east or west, you were still an American, it got deleted just like this probably will. That is why I post that comment.

  15. dostacos says:

    I think when Jamika was "pissed" and said she would BRING IT ON, they saw a person that would NOT be a team player or someone they wanted to deal with.

  16. SueAtkinson says:

    Hi Bill, have tried Mozilla Firefox and MS Internet Explorer, I can open some, not others. Do me a favor, see if you can see the replies on one I wrote yesterday that says: "Thanks for restoring my faith…". Also, when you posted your poll, it was visible, mine you have to dig in to find….any thoughts? Thanks! Sue

  17. Bill_Kos says:

    It's funny, the post you're talking about indicates 2 replies, but only one is visible. Something happened there.

  18. SueAtkinson says:

    Rachael from FN Dish says they are still working out the bugs in their new system-thanks for your help!

  19. Bill_Kos says:

    Rachael Ray?

    Tell her I love her broken spaghetti risotto with wild mushrooms!

  20. teresapay says:

    If you are so educated, why do you need to resort to personal insults to make your point? An "Educated" "Non-Moroni" SHOULD be able to clearly express their point of view with a little more class. Apparently, you are also dense as the objection isn't that you are entitled to your point of view, but rather that to attack Jeffrey personally for his appearance which he cannot help rather than constructive criticism for his food related characteristics shows a lack of CLASS!

  21. Lov2Cook says:

    You must be a relative of Melissa's. Why so much anger? We love Jeffrey here and we are all college grads. Stop with the insults.

  22. Lov2Cook says:

    PS: If you are the type of viewer Melissa would attract then that's one more reason to hope Jeffrey wins.

  23. evers says:

    You do not understand the bill of rights. Freedom of Speech refers to no censorship by the government. The government. Not Food Network. They can censor anything they choose to censor. Freedom of Speech as protected by the constitution has almost nothing to do with a blog. Unless you threaten someone on a blog and then you may find out that threats are not protected speech anywhere.

    I think Jeffrey is great. As is Melissa.
