It is no secret I love watching The Next Food Network Star each year.
I have always seen it as an unknown person getting their chance to live their dream and get a show on the Food Network. I have been really disappointed with this season. This year there have been three contestants who have appeared on other Food Network Shows. So far one has been eliminated but at least he can say he beat Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America. The other two have appeared on Restaurant Impossible and Chopped.
I usually find a couple I can like during the season but this year he is the only one I have liked at all. The only one I can think I could stomach to watch is Rodney the pie guy, who is one that has been on the network before.
Is anyone else watching this season? And has anyone else noticed the network is becoming more competition shows than cooking shows?
