Check out the beginning of Adam Gertler's demo on Rachael Ray, as seen in last night's episode of The Next Food Network Star:
Then go to Rachael's site to see how it aired on the actual talkshow.
Hear that laughter after Adam's joke about an ice cream sandwich? It was obviously added in post-production. In other words, he never got that laugh. The real audience at Rachael Ray just politely applauded, probably in a Pavlovlian-like response to the blinking APPLAUSE sign.
So are we up in arms over Food Network's CENSORING of the truth in regards to Adam's comedic abilities? No. It's just the way the producers are choosing to tell this story. It's not like the judges are in on the editing process while the show is being taped. I highly doubt producers pumped some extra laughter into the judges room during Adam's demo, while adding a bunch of dead air during Lisa's. So let's all breathe a sigh of relief. Ahhhhh...
Oh, and go eat a banana cut in half with some yogurt and strawberries on it.
