Charmed, I’m Sure

Brad Sorenson, Next Food Network Star Finalist

Does it seem to you like this season of Star is just flying by? It's actually hard for me to believe it’s been six weeks since I was watching these guys for the first time. To give myself a reality check, I think about just how much has happened: finalists who seemed incredible in the premiere have gone home; others I was sure wouldn’t last past Week Three are flying high. I have to say that for me, Brad has been the biggest surprise by far. Like Susie speculated in Week Two, I initially felt that he was just too nice. She questioned whether his upbringing might get in the way, and I thought, definitely. Doesn't Southern decorum mean manners and courtesy come first?  And while those certainly aren’t negatives, Star competition can be pretty tough and ruthless.

So despite his many charms – the kind demeanor, the super-sweet smile, the hat (not to mention his mad cooking skills) – I refused to get my hopes up. The guy had two more weeks, tops. I wasn’t about to buy in. Well, I guess he showed me. Instead of letting those qualities get in his way, he's made them part of what he’s about when it comes to his food ... and when it comes to the Brad you see on camera. Amazing, but I really didn't think it would happen. Did you?

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Really not often do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you've gotten hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the difficulty is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very pleased that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It is a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially inside the realm of games, but I’m not confident I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is really a significantly far better choice in that case.
