Joshua Adam Garcia
But he goes by, get this, JAG.
Yeah! JAG! Just sounds so appetizing, don't it?
1. I hate that. Lose it, please.
2. Chef de Cuisine? Food Network doesn't like these fancy titles. How about "cooker of food."
JAG is energized and seems to be good in front of the camera in his short clip. He'd probably be good buddies with Guy Fieri, so perhaps they should just give him the show now.
He said something that bugged me, though. It was like, "the only things you need to make good food are: salt, pepper, amor y fantasia" but he pronounced 'fantasia" like the Disney movie (or for you born more recently, the American Idol winner) and not how you would in Spanish.
BTW, JAG: it's fantasía! fahn-ta-SEE-ah.
Amy gets my green ribbon for good effort, but I fear she'll be one of the first ones off the show. Just based on her short clip, she rambled off too many French words and spoke about cooking techniques that I just don't see making it to a show anytime soon.
As we saw above, Food Network's got enough problems with English trying to be pronounced and it can't have any additional French words thrown into the mix.
It's perfectly admirable that Amy is classically trained and, obviously, a talented chef. Sadly, neither one of those will guarantee her the top spot.
