Man on the Street

by in Food Network Star, June 8, 2011

I’m a fan of Food Network Star and reality TV in general. And, I write this blog post as just that – as a Star viewer sitting at home in my pajamas watching this new season unfold. For in-depth analysis and behind-the-scenes Star news, you’ll want to watch the web-exclusive videos, read the other blogsRead more

Chatterbox, Episode 9: Iron Chef-Style

by in Community, August 8, 2010

Did you watch? This was the last episode before the finale. The four remaining finalists were inside the famed Kitchen Stadium being judged by their toughest critics to date (the Iron Chefs, themselves). I'm not going to give anything away here (look around the website or read the chat replay below for answers), but itRead more

Sunday's episode finds the remaining four finalists (Aria, Herb, Aarti and Tom) in New York competing in an Iron Chef America Challenge. Alton, Morimoto, Cat Cora, Michael Symon and of course, Bobby, will all be there inside Kitchen Stadium. In the episode, Alton has an "interesting" exchange with one of the finalists.

Chatterbox, Episode 8: Giada and Eva

by in Community, Judges, August 1, 2010

Tonight! Wow, I can put the evening in to one word: "Exciting." Eva Longoria Parker jumped in as our celebrity guest judge (I'm still laughing at her question to Timberlake) and Giada De Laurentiis stepped in to the Star Lounge to answer some of your questions. In my humble opinion, Episode 8 and tonight's chatRead more

Watch/Chat With Giada

by in Behind the Scenes, Judges, July 30, 2010

Can you EVEN? The very first email I read this morning informed me that we had confirmed Giada De Laurentiis to participate in our live chat on Sunday night. I’m excited! Bring your food questions, your thoughts on this season – Giada will be discussing it all! If you haven’t chatted with us before, it’sRead more

A Love Story or Two (OK, Maybe Three)?

by in Behind the Scenes, Food Network Star, Judges, Recap, July 19, 2010

My first love was Dzintra, but as with all great love stories – ours was cut short far too early. After the enviable Dzenis-Dudley romance of 2010 ended, I knew I must move on and find my next reality star romance. Serena and Brianna both fit the bill perfectly. But, who would I choose? ToRead more

This week on The Next Food Network Star, Bobby gets – well, let's just say he's not all about a few of the finalists' offerings. How would you caption this pic of Bobby?  

Dazzled

DAS. I’m not exactly sure what to say about his elimination – other than for the judges, he clearly lost his dazzle. For me, I was never all that taken with Mr. Smith. He seemed like a nice dude and someone you’d totally want to hang with, but for this competition, I just wasn’t wowed.Read more

From Where I Sit: Episode 3

by in Behind the Scenes, Food Network Star, Recap, June 21, 2010

I'm going to miss Dzintra. I must admit, I cringed with the rest of you when she shushed Aria – but, come on, you couldn't take your eyes off this finalist. Her unpredictability was fascinating. She was a pistol and the show won't be the same without her theatrics. I've written so much in previousRead more
