NFNS: Sorry, Jen.

July 1, 2008 at 9:25 am

Highlights from the Next Food Network Star:

  • Shane puts together two in a row to become a true contender.
  • Jennifer’s luck runs out.
  • Adam is funny and charasmatic, but he really cannot cook.
  • Lisa keeps getting better.

Kelsey continues to distance herself from the pack by winning everything and applying every bit of advice she gets.  I spoke with a friend who manages a Red Lobster and she said everyone was shocked at how good Kelsey’s tilapia with white chocolate buerre blanc is.  By the way, I’m still a bit peeved about TFN’s selling out to a corporate chain, but I am learning to live with it.

Shane had another good week and it appears that he is over his nervousness and star struckedness (new word) from the early episodes.  He may be Kelsey’s only true competitor despite Lisa’s getting more likable each week.  I think that Lisa will find it hard to get past that first impression she made but will come out of it a better person.

I figured this week would be Jennifer’s swan song.  She was so sweet, but at times she was also very bad.

Unless someone really screws up either Adam or Aaron will be gone this week.  As mentioned before Adam can’t cook and Aaron is not good on camera.

I loved that Shane was gushing about how attractive Cat Cora was.  The lad has taste.
