“Wake Up and Smell the Coffee, Penny’s Coming for Ya”

by in Food Network Star, June 15, 2011
The Middle Eastern Mama

Finalist Chris Nirschel warns his fellow Star constants in this video that they better be prepared for Middle Eastern mama Penny Davidi. In one of the most buzzed-about moments of the second episode, Penny strategically placed Orchid Paulmeier, an early frontrunner and favorite of the judges, on the all-male team of Justin B., Vic and Chris. In that group, "she's gonna fail," Penny told the cameras unapologetically.

On Facebook and our Star blog, you all certainly had opinions about Penny’s approach to the game Sunday night. While some of you noted Penny’s need "to fight for what she wants" in this fierce contest and her right to have "used the advantage that [Camera Challenge] win gave her," others simply couldn’t stomach her "meanness" and "anything-to-win personality." Your comments on her tactics prove that many of you are frustrated with Penny’s "bitterness and immaturity," but also that some fans are "almost starting to like Penny," as "she has a culinary point of view that is different, she can learn … and she's smart."

So, what do you think? Is Penny’s "in it to win it" approach her key to Food Network Stardom, or will it only add tension to the group? Join the conversation on Facebook and at Star Talk, and tune in this Sunday at 9pm/8c to watch the next round of drama unfold.

  4. Everyone both games are graphically good! But i want to point out is dark souls is not ur typical adventure rpg game where u level up and beat the because ur strong to win and beat! This game is on a whole notha level! I literally stopped playing gor a while because it messes with u mentally! Please play demon souls to get an understanding of dark souls. People take this game for granted. They play like 5? mins in the game and they say it sux becuz its too hard or i cant figure the game.

  5. Some really good info , Glad I detected this. "War does not determine who is right - only who is left." by Bertrand Russell.
