Sandwich guy didn't win, right?
I liked The Hearty Boys.
No, Jeff Mauro (The Sandwich King) did win season 7. I enjoy his show.
I always like Aarti Party the best
she was always so enthusiastic and seemed so happy
she seemed competent in the kitchen and her food was I something I genuinely wanted to try
I've seen sandwich guy on Chopped All Starts twice I think
he didn't impress me
diners drive-ins and dives is a great show
I always want to try the places he goes to
however he has a regular cooking show that just doesn't impress me too much
he seems somewhat competent in the show, but all the rings and -- I don't know -- he just reminds of the fat, drunk uncle manning the the BBQ and flipping burgers on the holidays
Nice interview with the three finalists on Alton Brown's podcast http://www.nerdist.com/2013/08/the-alton-browncast-7-and-then-there-were-three/
I haven't listened to it yet but on twitter someone commented that pie guy talks over everyone and Alton said it was even edited...A LOT.
Justin would have done well if he had created Good Eats 2.0. He had the food science know-how to pull it off. It would have been cool to see Alton-esque quirkiness paired with modern techniques.
I'm ok with the winner.
Of the three finalists? Sure. I'll bet pie guy gets a show too. (The runners up seem to do better on cooking channel anyway)
I'm not sure if I preferred the setup last season or not, but the talent seemed really weak this year imho.
I am okay with the winner and I hope they actually do something with her and get her a show.
wow, didn't know he had a podcast
thanks for posting the link
Well of course of the 3.
The only other person I would have preferred to see would of been Nikki.
Here's a little blurb about Justin... http://www.foodnetworkgossip.com/2013/06/where-is-justin-warner.html
Normally I can guess the winner after the first show, or at least the top two. This year I was way off. Damaris isn't my cup of tea, but if you watched the recaps she really did come a long way from the beginning. I have a feeling the pie guy is going to be more popular in the long run, and it will not have anything to do with pies.
Well, I can't say that I'm surprised. I was, however, a little surprised that 'sins' guy got the ax in lieu of pie dude. I figured pie dude would get the least number of votes. I guess I'm in the minority, since he seems too skeevy to me. I wouldn't watch him at all - ever.
I doubt if I will watch the winner either. I might check it out once but I just think they threw away people who were way better than any of the last three.
I would agree that Damaris did improve a lot and she looked really cute in the finale. I just think they push the wrong stuff and it leads to losing good people. They come right out of the box expecting people to be excellent on camera. For probably the vast, VAST majority of the population that is a learned skill.
Meanwhile they think the likes of pie dude is entertaining and interesting?? alrighty then.
So glad this is over! I mostly just FF'ed to the end, didn't care of the introspective. They really didn't bring out the best at the end, though Damaris wasn't a bad choice.
I did FF right to the end. The other didn't really matter.
If you FF'd to the end of the show, you missed some funny stuff.
I really enjoyed the finale with all the outtakes, etc.
Damaris is too cute. I liked the switch to that idea. Shes definitely at her best when directly interacting with someone - as opposed to just through the camera.
I enjoyed Pie Guy's pilot more than expected. The idea of visiting cool places and turning their specialties into pies is much more interesting than just pies.
Russell's sins theme didn't do much for me. All that on-trend stuff in a suitcase seemed super cheesy, and old.
I'm sure I'd check out any of the three - and Nikki if she gets a show
Yay!! Damaris! I think her show will be fun. I hadn't thought about filling some of the Paula void - but if that worked in her favor, that's cool.
I did, as well. Lots of funny bits - and nice to see how we'll the contestants seemed to get along... Even with Danushka.
I wonder if Nikki's pregnancy had anything to do with the timing of her exit from the show? It certainly seemed odd at the time.
