Default The next food network star

I love this show. I wait for it all year. We are down to the final six. I think in the next three weeks Herb, Serena and Aria will be out. I like Herb but I do not think he has star quality. Serena is cute and sweet but talks too damn fast and doesn't make sense when she is presenting her food. Aria is just annoying. I hate her type. Too smiley, too fake. She reminds me of Rachel Ray...we don't need another one of those.


Now that leaves us with Tom, Brad and Aarti.

I am really feeling Tom's laid back personality. I love that he looks like a mess. He is sort of adorable. However he has yet to cook one thing I would EVER eat.

Brad is coming out of his shell and might really have a chance at this. He is sweet, suave and charming. I love that he loves food. He is a true foodee at heart.

Aarti is such a warm person. She makes you feel like family. I could see her being very successful. I am not a fan of Indian food, I wouldn't watch her show. But I do feel there is a huge market out there for her.

I agree completely with your final 3 choices, Toni.

I adoooooooore Aarti. She is just beyond magnetic - when she's on screen, I can't tear my eyes away! And her food, of course, looks amazing (I like Indian, though!).

I agree too Toni, but I like indian food as well, and I would make her food. I'm hoping she finds her mojo before it's too late. I could go either way on any of them tho. Whoever wins will likely have a show I'd watch.

I'd be happy with either Aarti or Tom winning. Both have great personalities that I'd enjoy watching on a television show. I feel like I can relate easier to Tom, but Aarti is such a sweet person and I'd be excited learning a whole new cuisine.

Aria was one of my frontrunners in the beginning, but I think that she's kinda hit her glass ceiling. She's just not enjoyable to watch anymore. Herb is so unstable - one episode he's on top of things, and the next he's down and making bad food. Brad bores me to death, which is shame since he's clearly got a huge passion for food. And Serena is way too Rachel Ray/Giada for me. We have enough of those personalities on the network, we don't need another one.

I love Aarti. And I don't like Indian food. I think her accent pushes me over the edge

I think if the public gets to vote on who wins, it would be her. Do they? I don't remember!

I love this show too.

So glad Brianna finally got the boot. She was dead behind the eyes. I like the idea of the final three being the people mentioned. If Tom gets his own show, I just just hope he wears a hair net over his whole head!

I know, right? I couldn't stand her!

I'm pulling for Aarti for the win! She is absolutely magnetic on screen, and brings a new cuisine to the Food Network table. We reaaaallly don't need yet another Italian cooking show.

Well Serena's luck ran out, though I was expecting Aria to get the cut. The way she hoped that Aarti would fail as a leader really turned me off. I knew her persona was fake, but I didn't expect her to be that bad.

Totally. I think they are keeping her in the game for drama sake. No way she is winning this one.

Agreed. I was expecting her to go too and was surprised that is was Serena. There is no way she will win at this point. Maybe she'll be gone by the next episode.

Well, much as I disliked Aria and her claws...I couldn't stand watching Serena...she made me nervous/wince just watching her, and when I'm watching TV I want to relax. So, between the two, I would have kept Aria too. Doesn't really matter who goes first, I guess.

I find it fascinating how when you take a group of amateurs, how some of them just "glow" on camera, and others go completely flat. Same thing happens in photography too, but that phenomena never fails to intrigue me.

Aarti is my fave, though Tom has what it takes too. I would have enjoyed seeing the backbiting snarker Aria get the boot, but simple fact is that she does have some skill. Serena was way out of her depth.

ding - dong Aria's gone...! I'd like to think that I could have turned out better food than she did...what was she thinking?

Yeah to Aarti for totalling killing the Iron Chef challenge!!!

And lordy, bacon steak?

I thought the bacon steak was hella funny. I still still don't get what Tom's show would be about, yet I'd probably watch it. At this point if Aarti doesn't win it will be sad. I don't see why she wouldn't tho. I think having all the Iron Chef's tell her they loved her food the most seems like a full win to me.

Is it weird that I would have loved to try a bacon steak (granted, one that was executed well)? But it just sounds so...orgasmic.

I don't watch much on Food Network other than these competition things, or the best this and that, but I am so glad that Aria and her jazz hands are gone! To even think about cruising that station and seeing that ' hi boys and girls, mommy has a wonnnnnnderful surprise for you, yes she does !! ' face...no! I was actually embarrassed for her, when I saw what she cooked. Those kinds of situations will have me look away from the television. It's like I made it. lol

As far as I'm concerned, Aria should have been kicked several weeks ago. She came across as snotty and condescending, with a terrible screen presence. And yes, that total mess she prepared for the Iron Chefs was embarrassing to say the least. I'm hoping Aarti can take the prize.

Eh. I knew Aarti was going to win, but I have to say that I started seeing a bit of the fake oooze out of her - and that's why I wish the hair net poster boy would have won. * thinks of the new competition show I will now watch *

I started to like Herb more at the end, but I just didn't see him having a great show. His passion just doesn't seem to translate to the camera.

I am missing the "fake" about Aarti. But I have to say, even though I'm an Aarti fan I think Tom did the best pilot.
