Our Next Food Network Star

Melissa vs. Jeffrey
I am sitting here watching the Next Food Star Finale. I really enjoy watching this week after week. It's down to the last two contestants. Melissa has four little girls under 4 and Jeffrey is a realtor that was a former restaurant owner.
Alton Brown helped them with their final challenge. Avery is crazy about him and she was really looking forward to this last episode. They are ready to announce the winner.
Melissa won and I am so happy. She seems so genuine. Her mother was a single mother and died when Melissa was 20. Her friends took her in and she got into the corporate world eventually. She's bubbly and has a special charm about her. I'm so thrilled for her and I can't wait to see her show on the Food Network.
I hope you had a great weekend. I'll now get ready to watch HGTV's Next Design Star. Okay, do you see a trend here? I just love these shows.
Do you enjoy these shows?

I'm babysitting this week and trying not to turn the tv on too much. After the girls were in the bed last night I checked HGTV hoping that Design Star would be repeated but no such least not while I could hold my eyes open. I was soooooo tired.

Good morning. I love that Melissa. I was rooting for her. Jeffery would also have been good but I liked Melissa best. I felt that after the show I could come home on Monday and fix dinner and not have to get ingredients. She is much more practical for working women which most of us are these days.

I watched both of these! Won't it be fun to see Melissa's new show. They were both great, though, and I wanted to taste Jeffrey's sandwich! :)

Me too those shows..pure fun and I love them!

I"m so glad Melissa won too! From the beginning you could tell she was a keeper!

Jeffrey owns a realty company???
Melissa needs this job......I would've been happy with any of the two, but glad it was her.
