It's down to Rory and Amy. One has to win it all, "the biggest prize in television" (6-episode deal and a car) and the other walks away with nothing.
And it turns out Rory already has some experience doing just that.
Food Network Addict-reader Janine sent me some info about Rory's recent appearance on the CMT reality show "Popularity Contest" care of Route 66 News:
Last spring, you may have watched a reality show on CMT called “Popularity Contest.” In it, 10 contestants from the big city were plopped down in the Route 66 town of Vega, Texas, to win over residents and vie for a $100,000 prize they would split with one Vega citizen.Poor Rory! Coming in 2nd place on two reality shows would definitely hurt one's ego. Rory seems to have done all right, though, and still went on to open her restaurant in Vega, Texas.
The New Jersey chef and restaurateur, Rory Schepisi, finished second and didn’t win anything.
Perhaps coming in 2nd place is just what Rory hopes for.
We shall seeeeeeeeeeeeee.
