She did taste it. That's the scary thing.
Another big YAY from me, for Lovely getting the boot. With her and Dooshy gone, there are no major irritants left. Even the girl from the south seems to be much less annoying. In fact, I somewhat like her. She's quite attractive too.
This 'Salvation' thing - are they effing kidding me?? I didn't look. Probably won't happen. I'm not a 'watch tv on the computer' person anyway, for the most part.
That kind of stuff just irks me anyway. It's just not fair to the people who have done well enough to stay on. I absolutely abhor the notion of bringing back somebody who did crappily enough to get eliminated. wrong wrong wrong
Deep fried bread stick does not make a donut, even if you cover it in sugar. She had to go for that one.
Not tasting your food is so common on these shows. Top Chef chefs are guilty of it as well. Is it arrogance, stupidity or just simply forgetting?
Unless I'm imagining things, she did taste the "donut."
She did taste the donut, that wasn't a donut. Deep-fried prepared pizza dough? Ugh. That just sounded awful. Beignets would have been perfect, and really simple to do. So glad Lovely's gone.
I'm really liking Nikki. The whole concept of 'meat on the side' is intriguing, and I'd watch her show.
Lovely was far from Lovely... way too fake IMHO.
I think she tasted a fresh, hot donut - but by the time they go out to the diners and judges it was probably cold... and hard...
Even so.....prepared pizza dough should have been alarm bells in so many ways.
It's not much different than the stuff that Domino's makes.
Yeah, as soon as she said she was making doughnuts using prepared pizza dough, I knew she was in trouble!
That's insane for a home cook to do, let alone a potential Food Network Star.
It's what makes me wonder who watches these shows! Like Survivor - learning how to make fire - don't chef's know that using pretty much "prepared" anything is death.
Unless your point of view is going to be "semi-homemade".
Actually, I like that show on Food Network when I remember to watch it (though the host is a bit annoying). I would love more shows that showed how to cook daily food - which needs to be common ingredients - pantry staples - and take little skill or time. Rachel Ray's 30 minute meals was not bad for that - but sometimes she still was a little out there.
My early guess is "Poon" as my wife loves to call her, or Chad who is representing my home town. I have to root for Chad, and I think he has a decent shot. My wife interviewed at his restaurant yesterday and met him for a brief moment.
Danushka has it all - bad personality, horrible voice, mediocre cooking skills. How did she make it on this show?
Well, I'm bummed that my cute little guy - Viet - is gone. I was hoping it would be southern girl as she did an awful job once again in presentation. She's cute and I almost, kinda, sorta, like her in a small way. But she just goes into annoying mode every time it seems.
Viet just couldn't do well in front of a camera but he had a lot of other qualities I like.
Who could be thrown in front of a camera, as quickly as they are, and do well? Not too many people. The lady with the short dark hair is definitely the best.
I think their first challenge was unfair to Nicky - a fire alarm? There are many people who are conditioned to panic or at least look for exits, especially those that's been through a fire or a bomb threat, etc. I would expect if she was on TV at the time, that she does NOT ignore it, and instead starts heading for some exit - at least to set the right example. The other 'distractions' were ok and somewhat funny.
Good for drama ... should have been on TNT ... heh ...
Agreed on the fire alarm. That didn't seem at all on the same level as what happened to the other contestants.
She's proof that I am not as shallow as some people accuse me of. Totally my type looks-wise, but hells bells, I'd be outta there as soon as she started talking.
Not even close to my type. She looked like she needed a good meal, let alone cook one.
I've seen more meat on a butcher's pencil!
HA! Maybe. Remember back to previous seasons of this show though, they're really big on 1) the contestants coming up with a theme or pov & sticking with it, and 2) that theme or pov being something that the star can relate on a personal level so that people watching the show think a person is talking to them rather than at them from their tv screen.
Also, I've definitely been weighing the PROs and CONs on the lack of teams this year. While I really enjoyed the chefs defending their stars and having a vested interest in them, I think I enjoy more that they're all giving a critical third-party look at each of the stars, and not just holding onto them because they happen to be on their team. Plus, Alton's been downright brutally honest almost to the point of nasty (which I'm loving), and I think he dialed that back again last season.
I wonder if the vouching for stars backfired since last year's winner has had a total of one show on the network, and apparently now just blogs for the website but seemingly nothing else.
I think if he could come up with a "reality" / contest / undercover show they'd put him on every night
that seems to be the direction the "Food" Network is going
