All I’m Looking For Is a Star

So here we are heading into the final stretch with TOM, HERB and AARTI. Am I surprised by these final three? Yes, actually.

If you had asked me before we taped, I may have guessed that the final three standing would be ARIA, AARTI and, maybe, BRAD.

I couldn’t have predicted that ARIA would have started out as astoundingly impressive as she did … and end up on such a low note.

I couldn’t have predicted that BRAD would struggle so much for so long with the camera … and never really make peace with it.

I couldn’t have predicted that TOM would finally find a way to mix his low key slacker vibe with humor and cooking creativity to become a real contender.

I couldn’t have predicted HERB would find a way to fuse his Latin and Healthy point of views so appealingly, and in a way that lets his inner-star shine through.

And I couldn’t have predicted AARTI would struggle all season long with her self-confidence in ways that nearly sunk her, and our confidence in her, over and over.

That’s what I love about doing this show. You can never predict anything.

So, do I have a favorite going in? Not really. All I'm looking for is a star. I think each of these three have the potential, but in wildly different ways. Can't wait to see what they do with their pilots. I'll see you at the finale.

    my name is mike mcCarthy from Rochester N.Y. I was wondering if mr. Tuschman was looking for any new ideas for new shows. Im currently unemployed and waiting for a decision from disability.I cant work and we are having a hard time shuffling bills on one income. I think i might have an idea for two new shows on food network .Only problem is its hard for the little guy to get to the execs. If anyone is reading this from that industry. I would like to know if it would be possible for someone to at least hear my ideas least you can do is say no right. please consider at least hearing my ideas.Thank you. To whom it may concern.From Mike McCarthy
