Gigantor said that she wished she had called him that sooner. He was always “selling” himself, when all along, he had a perfect “built-in” POV- he had lost over 100 lbs, his Health and Welness POV was brilliant. I can’t believe that Captain Pickle, after having watched the series himself, would not recognize how sales-y and preacher-y he came off?
Nikki asked if they were hard on her because they knew she could take it? Um… she could? She welled up with tears whenever she was criticized.
She should have taken a lesson from Martie- she got beaten by Alton on a daily basis and never cracked. Bob replied “I wish I was harder on you and on everyone.” These contestants needed tough love in a very short amount of time.
Ok, we are 12 minutes to 10pm here… and they ask the remaining people why they should win?
Justin says he is honored and excited to get people excited about turning things upside down.
Gangster says her love of New England is so great, and it’s not just about the food, but about its history and its people. It makes her happy.
Yvan says, for him, it’s all about family and he would love to be a part of the Food Network Family and he wants everyone to take time to be with their family.
Bob comments, each contestant has star qualities. And they bring out Brooke Johnson, President of Food Network, who resembles a banged-up Lily Tomlin, to announce the winner.
Who let Lily Tomlin in here?
The Next Food Network Star is: JUSTIN WARNER aka Vampoor.
Winner Winner Foie Gras Dinner
Vampoor says “It’s amazing. I never thought I would be accepted by America!”
Alton feels like a proud papa and says “I like your spirit, kid.”
Everyone hugs, Nikki makes out with Bobby, Rock and Roll’s space ship blasts off to return him to his home galaxy and Martie keeps talking and talking and talking…
Oh! Here’s is the prediction I wrote down before the Finale started:
