Your next Food Network Star is Justin.

Shocked! [insert sarcasm]

  1. Yea, it was pretty much a given ages ago.

    1. It was anti-climactic. I also thought the show was stagey and choppy. Food Network should stick to the competitions, they do those better than the "relaxed" interviews. I did think the behind the scenes stuff with Giada, Bobby, and Alton was very funny. They all seemed sincere about how attached they became to their teams. That was touching.

        I've got a Giada See n Say on pre-order.

          I thought that was one of the funniest lines AB's ever said. And Giada laughed too.

      2. Justin definitely deserved it. Do you think any of the other contestants will get shows?

        1. I know it looked like a given - but you never really know.

          So I'm happy.

          Actually I would have been okay with three out of the four finalists getting shows... But as an Alton Brown fan, I'm extra happy with Alton Jr.

          And hey! Maybe Bobby will give Eric a job : )

            I used to love Alton, but I just wasn't that excited about the seemingly (to me) pre-ordained heir to Alton. Then again, I doubt that I would watch any of these shows. I'm just going to curl up with my pretty cookbooks.

          2. I'd like to see the vote breakdown.

            Apparently, some 4.5 million votes were tallied.

              Yup, I'd like to see the vote tally as well.

              Doesn't mean I'll get to! ; )
