    Even when Penny was trying to be 'warm', she always looked mean for some reason.

    Nobody thinks Jeff is going to win? I thought from the first episode that he was an early favorite. If he would stop being so stupid with blue humor and get focused, I still think he has a great shot to win.

    I think it is Susie. Nobody else has what it takes for a tv show.

    jradosh: Marine Corps marathon this year? I ran it... well... a few decades ago. 34th Company, at the time. Good luck and fair winds.

    Finally watched this latest double-elimination episode last night. I thought the female judges were particularly harsh on Jyll. They criticized her because she held it together and put on a brave face while being humiliated? They would have preferred her to fall apart? That's pretty cold. If she had expressed her mortification, they no doubt would have said "Somethings things don't go right, or as you planned. It's important to roll with the punches. Never fall apart on camera. Your audience always has to believe you are the authority." I really felt for her.

    If history repeats itself, Susie will win and get a show that airs every other Sunday morning at 8:00 am. :thumbsdown:

    Jeff will follow 2 months later with his own primetime show that follows him around the country as he samples the best local sandwiches in the USA. :up:

    Thanks :)

    Yeah... this. And his show will take him to all the places previously seen in "Man vs. Food", "Sandwich Paradise" and that other show with the guy (Tom?) from "Food Network Star" a few seasons ago.

    Susie is definitely the favorite. And I believe Mary Beth will end up with a show - one without her cooking.

    Jeff was one of my top 3 from the first episode:

    He really rocked the Rachel Ray show tonight. Really strong.

    It's the shape of her eyebrows. Seriously, I think they make her look mean.

    My wife thinks it'll be Susie and Jeff in the finals and Mary Beth with get a non-cooking show (like Adam a few seasons back, or Tom last leason).

    Of course, this makes me wonder: with Food Network turning into the food games how/reality show channel, shouldn't this show be renamed to the Next Cooking Channel Star? ;)

    Jeff is certainly pulling away from the pack!

    I agree now that it's him and Susie in the finals, and unless Susie steps it up Jeff wins.

    (not that I'd watch a show based around the "sandwich king"...)

    I would watch if A) the sandwiches were pretty easy to make with simple ingredients and/or B) he turned non-sandwich favorites (like French Onion Soup or Mashed Potatoes and Gravy) into sandwiches.

    Three wins in a row for Jeff ... nice.

    Ugh, we have to deal with Penny again next week.

    Whitney is gone :(

    She wasn't cutting it with the rest, but I guess I just had a thing for her;)
    That crying didn't help her out. From the promo's I though she may have been laughing from crying too hard. The roasters certainly were not funny enough for that to happen.

    It is interesting to watch the FoodTv panel and their expressions during some of these challenges, especially when something makes them uncomfortable. I wonder how much of that actually matches up time-wise with the challenges.

    I would watch the Sandwich king too, as long as there were not too complex or with goofy ingredients that you would not typically buy.

    That does add a twist when everyone watches those before them in those presentation challenges. But it is obviously not easy for the first or the last to go.

    Guess I would go for Jeff or Vic Vegas (or Vic Moe??) as final two. I know Susie has high chances, but I just don't have an interest.

    I was hoping for a real roast. But some of the comments were pretty funny!

    Looks like Susie is back.

    Vic "Moea" will not win but may still get a show. His problem is that it is too late in the season to have an unclear point-of-view. It's like these people never saw the show before - have a distinct personality and POV or you have no chance.

    Mark my words - Mary Beth is next, then Vic, and then we have a winner between Jeff and Susie. My money is still on Jeff. If he loses he will still get a show.

    It's easy to say, "Have a POV," but we've seen many times when the judges point out holes in someone's pre-conceived POV, or it becomes clear that what the person *thought* was their POV was actually artificial and didn't match up with their personality. Unless you've been through a process like that before, it's a learning experience from beginning to end. Creating a POV is not the same thing as standing in front of a camera or panel of judges and selling it.

    I would be surprised if Vic doesn't show up on the Food Network at some point. The camera loves him, and he's very good interacting with people, much more so than demonstrating a cooking technique without an audience. He'd be great in a Guy Fieri type role, or in a show with a live audience (which are very rare for FN).

    That's exactly my take also.

    I agree with this too. I'd watch a Vic show. I think all three of them will be on, either on Food Network or the Cooking Channel.

    There's something about Vic that makes him unappealing for me to look at. I think it' the way he has to stand and walk because his muscles are so large. I like him as a person, but I wouldn't want to watch him every week.
