He only has one take left to get it right. OH NO!!! What on earth will happen?!?!!?
I am not convinced that they only get 3 takes. I am guessing they can do a million practices, but can only record 3 times and even then, they probably edit the takes together.
Bob and Gigantor gather with the guest judges to review the promos and make a decision on which contestants will get the green light to produce a pilot. Guest Judges are: The ACTUAL Anne Burrell, Melissa d’Arabian, Aaron Sanchez, Robert Irvine, Sunny Anderson and last year’s Food Network Star winner: Jeff Mauro. The judges will watch the promos and discuss. The contestants will ALSO watch the promos, sitting at restraining-order-distance behind the judging panel.
Nikki’s promo is the first to be reviewed. Of course, her third take is perfect, as are all of theirs, hence I am suspicious about the actual number of takes/edits they get. Here are the comments from the judges: She knows her POV and “I really felt like the wanted us to believe it,” Good Stature, Presence and Intriguing.
Gangster is up next. Although the Actual Anne Burrell didn’t seem to catch the resemblance. Judges comments: Very Inviting, seems adventurous, her body language “scared me,” she has what it takes.
DROP AND GIVE ME 50
The Judges Comments from Ippy were: Intriguing, too sing-song-y, needs tweaks, liked his POV and seems to have genuine conviction.
Yvan, according to the judges: charming, passionate, sweet, had warmth, spoke from the heart, “I have no idea what he will cook but it will be family style.”
Vampoor was “obviously mentored by Alton, “I love him,” his like-ability scale is off the charts. (No surprise there, Vampoor is the front runner.)
Attack of the 50 foot Vampire
Lastly, Martie, the judges thought she was: funny, memorable, does she have the chops to back up her promises?
Most of the contestants are freaked out to see their heads 12 feet tall. It was a little creepy and I can’t say that the horrible green paint did ANYTHING for any of them. Except make them seasick.
This elimination is the biggest in Food Network History… ha, I love the drama. “This is going to be the most dramatic rose ceremony ever…” The only thing they can do to really step up the drama is to just shoot the contestants as they exit.
All of Nikki’s blood, sweat and tears has lead up to this point… and all of her hard with with Bobby behind the dumpster BETTER pay off!!!
Bobble thinks it’s going to be a tough night, mainly because her hair is not holding up in the humidity.
This is a hair don’t
