    I am having a terrible case of pity for Irvine myself. He just looks pitiful now to me.

    Looking forward to seeing the show tomorrow night with Mothra.

    MOTHRA!

    LOVE IT!

    She is like a friggin moth that you get inside the house during the summer.
    It shows up at the strangest times and bugs the crap outta you.

    ----------

    Ted Allen has a new show scheded for the TVFN.

    It's described as "Good Eats, Mythbusters" and another show I can't remember.

    I saw Ted Allen walking down Hollywood Blvd a few months ago. He knows he's TA and he walks like it too! Hard to miss.....

    He's gonna do stuff like finding out if an apple a day, does keep the doctor away and how long chewing gum takes to digest....


    Here's some suggestions from me.....

    How to keep the price of corn down.
    How does salmonella get into the food chain.
    Why I only get two pickle chips in my Big Mac.
    How to get food into Darfur.

    You know, real stories about food and how to keep people from starving!

    I still can't understand why they give these people so little time to complete the challenge. It ruins everything.

    Mothra tried to act friendly but it just isn't possible for her. She never eats sloppy Jane's/Joe's --yada yada yada

    I looked into my crystal ball and I really think Lisa will be the winner. She seems to make the judges happy almost every time. Just a guess.

    Thank goodness that they finally told the little blond to tone it down. Do we really believe she wasn't putting on a big act like she implied?

    We talked about it afterwards, and we think the blonde could have said, "Well, my target audience is the novice cook - you don't fall into that category, that's for sure!"

    Martha came of as completely rude to her, not gracious at all.

    I think Lisa is so stressed out and so wound tight she may not last the whole time!

    I think the "little blonde" is trying so hard because she wants it so badly, and has been rehearsing it in her head for 4 years! She does need to tone it down some, and maybe she will now?

    so what did I miss on the Next Food Network Star? Is the Lisa creature gone yet? I think Nipa the Spice Queen should have been dumped last week after her little exit scene... last year's winner isn't even on food network anymore ...
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Karen, I think you're so right about the little blonde. She's been rehearsing this thing for years. I hope she takes some of the enthusiasm down a notch. She seems to have a spirit and energy like Ricochet Rachel. Mothra can never be nice to anybody. Her huge empire, and ginormous head, hinder her from being polite and real. I can't help but wonder what she does eat
    Lisa is pretty emotional. I respect Mothra for being so successful but I can't see crying over meeting her. I think other additional emotions brought out the waterworks. I see now that she takes a pretty bad fall on the next show. She gets up with food all over her face. It looks brutal and so does she. The average person probably would have gotten badly hurt in such an accident.
    I don't know if she can hold up or not. It seems to me that we have enough women on Food Network. Do we really need another one? It might be time for something a little different.

    Elyse: Lisa is still there. She was the one that won the challenge along with another fella-I can't remember who right now. I think it was the bald black guy.
    Nipa makes everything too spicy to eat. How interesting is a show going to be with all Indian cooking? Oooooh, that's right, we have one with all Italian don't we? I don't see Nipa with the personality she needs for the network.
    I would love to find out what happened to Amy Findlay from last year. I voted for the other contestant. I thought she would have been alot better. I think her name was Rori. She was pretty good.

    I didn't get a chance to post this on sunday night.......

    The judges on TNFNS are not from this planet.


    What is the deal with their fixation with the 30 minute time frame?

    Why are they fricking rude? And what is it with their bipolarity?
    I don't think that they know why they are there and it shows as they keep changing the criteria.
    They want bubbly, but think the contestants are fake? They need look no farther than the on air bozos they have on now.

    I have to laugh at Danny Boome....Too many slapshots to the skull, Sunny Anderson licking her fingers while cooking and all the rest of the regular fare.

    Their confused and contradictory comments just reinforce my idea that running a food channel and judging talent do not go hand in hand!

    ----------------------------

    Mothra Stewart rarely eats Sloppy Joes.

    And probably has never used too little toilet paper in her life.

    During last night's show she showed that she is the Queen of All That is Perfect When It Comes to the Kitchen. She looked like she floated over the floor and treated the contestants with all the dignity of a piece of poop picked up in a dog run.

    She could not have been bothered by what the cooks showed her and if she 'was' interested she gave them a little eye contact, "Are you kidding me? You brought me here for THIS?"

    I did feel sorry for you Mothra when you went to jail, It must have been painful to have to talk to the little people-you know, the ones that eat sloppy joes, drink coffee stored in a can and eat danish, bought at a gas station mini mart and wrapped in cellophane.


    Oh, LOLOLOLOLOL, she probably ate a sloppy for the first time, and once a week thereafter, when she went to the clink. A subtle reminder that you thought what you did with your stocks still wasn't wrong. Cross me off your Christmas list, will ya?


    I loved the Booby Fake comment about stealing the recipe to put on his restaurant menu......Struggling to get more ideas, eh?

    My prediction?

    Some lawyer is out there and will soon file a 'Intellectual Property' lawsuit on behalf of a contestant when these recipes show up in a TVFN cook's eatery....

    Time to go eat some breakfast, I got 30 minutes to come up with my signature bowl of cereal and toast.....with a twist, of course!

    Did anybody see the episode that was on yesterday of Everyday Italian? This is the one that Giada has a friend of her's there and she's teaching her to cook for her inlaws.

    Giada treated the woman like an imbecile!! I honestly think she was embarrassed by the way Giada treated her. Giada was making a big deal if the girl knew what a spoon was. It was over the top. Hey Giada!! You're not the only person that can throw some pasta together.

    Speaking of pasta, I think Giada puts way too much pasta water in her pasta dishes. Normally, the pasta is floating. Is that appetizing? Why water down the sauce?

    Obviously, the 30 minute time limit is too strict. Especially when you have a woman fall face first on the set. Not a pretty picture. Perhaps her lawyer has stepped up and he will ultimately demand a win for her.

    LOL LOL LOL 30 minute cereal and toast with a twist.......hilarious!! And, it's a signature dish. That's what I call my Grapenuts too

    Amy turned down a second season on the FOod Network and moved to France with her family. I voted for Rori too!

    Thanks, Elyse. I had no idea. I know how much she loved France. Good for her. She never seemed really suited for the bright lights anyway. Can we get Rori back?

    I use the extra 25 minutes to taunt the others in the kitchen and read the news paper!

    --------------------

    I can see the gal that won last year at a streetside bistro, trying to get the locals to recognize her!

    There I am watching the NASCAR prerace show and who shows up? Guy Fieri.

    HE shows up with plates of some kind of meat on it for the show hosts..

    There should be a rule against wearing the kinds of shorts he wears. Men should not be allowed to wear bowling shirts with shorts that extend below the knee.

    IT's not fashion, it's a costume.....

    GF reminds me of this guy.....


    He's a Denver Broncos fan that would show up to the football games dressed like that. He came to the El Lay Coliseum while the Raider's played there. He had to be escorted out of the stands.....It was brutal.

    --------------

    A few more hours to NFNS!!!!

    I was sitting there watching Nascar myself, at a family get together. I see Guy Fieri on the tv set cooking meat!!! Holy cow!! Can we go anywhere without seeing him?? To make it worse......I was at my Son's house and he has one of those HD 300 inch screens. Guy looked scary with his new blonde/dark beard scheme. Where does he buy all those shirts?

    Tonight is the night that Lisa gets up with food all over her face. It should be memorable.

    This morning I make breakfast in a Target tank top, some shorts from a sporting goods store and my birkies...

    I think that was a total of 25-30 dollars for my whole outfit.

    I had to laugh at the 300 dollar shirt and the Gucci shoes. If I don't spill on myself, I haven't cooked. There is something "not right" with her.....something under the surface.

    ------------------

    Now, who in their right mind goes to the fridge, pulls out a piece of fish and then gets out a jar of grape jelly, cherrios or marshmallow cream to cook with it?

    I really love the fact that the judges are insulted about the taste of the dishes.

    Everyone knows fish and anything gawdawful sweet isn't good.

    ----------------

    I had to laugh at the "one minute" food prep tip.

    I laughed even harder at their critique of the kid that tripped into the eating area.

    The have a guy that literally shoves food into his face and has no manners at all, a woman who talks and acts like a baby while she cooks and a hubby and wife team who should give up cooking and open a massage parlor.

    IT is a train wreck, with an explosion, dam collapse and tidal wave...and I can't take my eyes off of it!


    The network is really taking advantage of these people.

    Yeah, you're COOKING in a $300 shirt? Hello? Yes, honey, we know you're here to be a TV star, but save the expensive outfits for the judging room! If you wanna wear it to give your presentation, keep it aside, and plan an extra 30 seconds off your cook time to change your outfit!

    But she came off a whole lot better when she had to give up on being "perfect" - far less grating on the nerves.

    Not surprised at who went home ...

    I thought that Adam's planned pratfall was not nearly as funny as he did, and seeing him struggle with a room of straight faces looking back at him was even sadder.
