Amy won, I am surprised!

I just knew that Rory was going to win the Food Network’s Next Star show but America surprised me and voted for Amy. I wasn’t blown away by any of the competitors but if I had to choose, I thought that I would like to watch a show by Amy moreso than Rory.

Seeing the background footage on Amy and Rory, being that Rory just opened a restaurant I was a bit perplexed at her desire to leave all of that for Food TV. Don’t get me wrong, I do realize that international viewership is better than Vega,TX with a population of 936 but I would have to imagine that opening a new restaurant is like having a baby and you just don’t leave your baby with just anybody. πŸ™‚

Of course things were dragged out for an entire hour and we got to see all of the competitors back together again circa The Apprentice. What was most intriguing after Jag had all of his issues he and Paul were quite chummy and touchy feely. What was truly going on there??? When Paul said that they we’re in love, was there some truth in that???? Their constant hand holding and leg rubbing really had me to thinking as well as the quick take to Bobby Flay’s face which looked to be in complete shock.

HGTV started their next Design Star show tonight and they had some real characters. All in all, I am glad that Food TV has found their star and now if Top Chef could end and make room for Project Runway, I would be a happy camper. πŸ˜€

  1. I am surprised anyone won πŸ˜‰ … I agreed when I heard Alton Brown say, “Can we just send them all home and start over?!”

    Hee hee you are so right!!!! It was a bit of a let down and neither of them had consistent performances each week of the show. They are already casting for Season 4, maybe the talent pool will be better.

  2. The whole Jag thing was very strange indeed, and I was completely befuddled by the best pal friendship with Paul. I am definitely glad Amy won- while Rory had great energy there was just something about her that rubbed me the wrong way (she just seeped an element that I don’t feel is necessary to being a good host). On Design Star- the blonde dude? What on earth is up with him? You know I’m going to be glued to my set to watch next week πŸ™‚

    I am so glad I wasn’t the only one about Jag and Paul. Rory had great energy but you are dead on about the other element. I think they (Food Network) have already tried to play up that element with Giada but that is another conversation. As for Design Star – yes the blond dude from TN was more than interesting and his belt collection was almost enviable for those that like it over the top. His design philosophy of design, add glitter, add sparkle was too much for me. We shall see how all of them really perform next week.
