I started to really pay attention to him the week of the fashion challenge when he did the deconstructed beef stroganoff with the beet juice. I thought Giada's entire team was interesting and fun. I loved what was said on the finale about the nerds, cheerleaders and jocks.
When the president was announcing the results she mentioned four and a half million - I wonder if that was votes or people voting. I only voted on Monday and Tuesday, but I used all ten votes each of those two days. Four and a half million votes would seem more like it to me. Interesting that his show won't start airing immediately- haven't past winners been on the air with their new shows within a week or two of the finale? I wonder what the final vote counts were, if it was a landslide or if it was really close. I'd watch any of their shows but the one I would be least likely to watch is Martie just because I don't entertain a lot. They've got two complete networks plus their Web site, so surely they can find some way to use the runners-up.
