"Finale: The last two finalists fly to Miami and cook for all the Food Network stars at the South Beach Food & Wine Festival. Then it's back to New York, where the winner is revealed, live!"
Now, presumably, this would have been JAG and Rory. Will this footage still be shown?
9:01 Ooooh, Marc Summers is back! He didn't get fired from the show after all! They attempted to jazz up the Food Network studio even though it still looks like Emeril's set combined with some books and stuff from Martha's show in the background.
9:03 A recap. Hi Viven. Forgot about her! I miss Nikki! While I wait I'll read the newest comments on my JAG posts. Hmmm... racist, not-racist, we forgave Clinton, etc. Riiiight.
9:07 The "startling turn of events." They don't mention if this is live or not. Amy's dressed like a nun, Rory has some sort of keyboard pattern shirt.
I'm hoping that Marc gives 'em a physical challenge to determine a winner!
9:13 Rory mentions the "other show" and how she got to Vega, Texas. Nice job about not mentiong that until the last episode. Boot Hill Saloon and Grill is the name of her restaurant there. Sounds very Back to the Future III.
9:23 Marc mentions that a woman will definitely win this competion. Good observation. Let's take a lok at Amy's home life in San Diego. Cute kids on the beach. She lives on the same property as her parents. It all makes sense now. This show already half over and nothing has happened.
9:27 9 other finalists come out. Viven looks exactly like Janice Dickinson once again. Nikki's in a denim jumper. Adrien got some sort of Zac Efron hair going on. Tommy is tan! Lots of makeup? JAG walks out and gets big hugs.
9:32 I'm beginning to wonder if the footage of the "final two contestants" cooking at the South beach Wine and Food Fest in Miami (this past February) is going to be cut. All we get instead are recap clips and special "never seen before moments" including lots of shirtless men walking around the house. Paul has quite the abs, actually. Probably better than Adrien's.
JAG has glasses on to look... scholarly? Thoughtful? He thanks everybody. "It ain't over" he says. Hmmm... got more tricks up your sleeve JAGger?
9:42 Tuschelson comes out! Susie looks like she may be hiding a bump there. Looks very maternity-wear.
Fashion comment on Amy: is that a dickie?
Fashion comment on Bobby: your thick, pink & orange tie is huge. It's as thick as a steak.
9:49 No Miami footage yet. Guess they forgot to change the info on the Web. Sad.
9:55 Emeril shows up. Don't forget about the 2008 Mercury Mariner he reminds them. President of Food Network Brooke Johnson (Lilly Tomlin look alike?) comes out. Bobby Flay passes Emeril the envelope and.........
AMY FINLEY is the winner! I am honestly surprised, but think Amy will do all right. Robin Miller better get scared.
Not a very big to-do, though. A quick announcement and off we go into Dinner: Impossible!
While this season was an obvious improvement in quality, it still has a long way to go if it wants to keep up with some of the other, more famous food TV competition shows. Blah. Night night!
More info and pics to come tomorrow! Hope everyone enjoyed it!
