We are down to the Final Six contestants. Gangster Anne Burrell, Nikki, Ippy with his hair in a lovely chignon with a bump-it, Yvan, Vampoor and Martie.
The Family Von Trapp
Justin comments that, as crazy as it sounds, he and Martie are, kind of, “BFF’s.” Aww, that’s kind of cute.
I know we are BFFs and all… but please don’t get near my junk
The arrive at SoBe and I immediately spot a problem:
The Star Challenge this week is each will shoot a 30 second promo for the show they want to launch on Food Network. They will have 3 takes.
You get this many takes
Which… I’m kind of calling BS on or editing BS because, of course they all jack-up the first two takes and nail the third. I swear these people think I do nothing but watch TV and have no skills in deducing. I watch Scooby Doo for cripessake!
“And I would have gotten away with it too…if it weren’t for those meddling kids!!”
They will be judges by some Food Network Stars, including The Actual Anne Burrell and some others and, of course, Bob and Gigantor are there.
I rest my case
They will green-light 3 pilots and the other 3 contestants will be sent packing.
In an interview segment, Justin says that he will be heartbroken if Martie doesn’t get her shot- she’s been waiting for this her whole life. Crap. He’s so sweet.
Are these Mom Jeans gabardine?
Of course, in theory, for her to win, he would lose. But… let’s keep watching.
Ippy and Yvan, clearly are buds.
We see no such pleasantries between Gangster and Nikki. My impression is Nikki thinks she’s way better then Gangster… and Gangster is willing to cut at bitch at any time.
The Promos are being filmed in a pink and green truck. Why is it pink and green???!! At first I thought maybe it was going to be a “Green Screen” type of thing and they would, somehow, insert the correct Graphics for each POV. Then I remembered that this is the Food Network… and with their budget they don’t even splurge on fresh scallops. Maybe Home Depot having an unmarked paint can sale? Regardless it looks like the Preppy Handbook drove the porcelain bus all over the set.
Gangster thinks that New England is a region not covered on Food Network. She is right, although, I’m not sure it is a broad enough POV to appeal and be the basis for a weekly show, which could be why the show doesn’t already exist. “Cooking Severed Heads” is a non-represented POV as well… but I doubt people are missing it.
