So - has anybody else watched Damaris' new show since she won Next Food Network Star this year?
I fully admit that I am one of those who did NOT root for her and also stated that I had no interest in her show.
Then I remember thinking to myself - self, there is no need to be so close-minded. Give it a look-see and cut her some slack.
I have to say that she is doing a good job. I think it might be partly because she is not (in the least!) trying to be outrageous and uber-flirty, but she looks absolutely lovely as well.
The format isn't quite as ridiculous as it seemed during NFNS either. It's more like having a guy on who wants to make his wife/girlfriend/etc some kind of special meal and they use ideas from what she likes to create a meal. Damaris does some of the cooking on her own, then brings the guy in to do more of the cooking with her.
The intro shows the guy and a quick synopsis of his story. It's a little like Ina, with her going to the Farmer's Market or some sort of shopping for a couple of minutes and choosing some ingredients with her talking about the ingredients.
All in all, very low key and pleasant. I'm very surprised. I find it very watchable.
