Behind the Scenes at Next Food Network Star Finale


Aaron and his family all seemed very happy he won. I think the FN Dish has a first, here: shoving a microphone into the losing contestants' faces minutes after hearing the winner's name. Fun!

Did Kelsey say that Lisa belongs on Bravo??? And did she say it really quickly and almost under her breath?? Hmmm... I'm wondering if she knows something we don't??

This Adam guy is beyond ridiculous! Not someone who needs to be in front of the camera.

Well, I thought Lisa had the best cooking skills. Aaron seems to be a nice guy, but does he have the skill needed for a cooking show? Lisa was done in, they showed her as a Diva and really, she appears to be a great cook and always came prepared.

Adam Roberts, I hope FN didn't commit to a contract with you they can't get out of. You suck!

I hope that Lisa develops a website or something so we can know what she is up too. She was robbed....Lisa....you should have won...but you know what Lisa????

You are a winner already!

After watching that, I now seriously dislike Kelsey and Shanne. I know they're mere children but their response to the question was unprofessional and vicious. (I never liked what's his name anyway so no loss, but I actually was rooting for Kelsey and Shanne at one point.) Little lesson for you two guys, if you should happen to come by here: when asked who you want to win out of three people, say the one name you really want to win. Don't say two of the three names because that can (a) only be interpreted as a dig, (b) makes you both look like bitter little bitches, and (c) is really bad for your karma.

I'm so disappointed in Kelsey, Shane, and Kevin for their rude comments about Lisa. After watching this, I like Lisa even more. She was so kind, gracious, and classy in spite of being robbed of the title. I really hope another network picks up her show!

Lisa is a TRUE professional and it shows in these video's. Those three mentioned above are Peasants!!.

, Also isnt Kelsey suppose to be some kind of mormon?? I always love the special kind of bible thumper, the one who in one hand waves the bible but when no one from he church is looking they can turn a forked tongue with the best of them, those three need to go back to their farms

The most painful thing about watching that video is the guy with the microphone.

Kelsey, Kevin, and Shane came off exactly as what they are - losers.

I had the great misfortune to eat at Kevin's "restaurant" in San Diego and how that guy can call himself a chef or cook professionally is beyond me. After seeing the video, there's just one more reason to be irked by this guy.

And Kelsey...she sure acted like she liked Lisa all along when they worked together. As suspected, she is a total fake.

Go Lisa!!

Big Daddy is a movie with Adam Sandler - that's what's scheduled to be on at 2:15 a.m. on Thursday. jj

Lisa and Adam were very gracious in the video. It speaks volumes, however, that Kelsey, Shane and Keith were all rooting for either Adam or Aaron. What's up with THAT?

WOAH! Cool footage! I'm so glad I found your blog! I check it every day now. I do think Lisa would be cool on Bravo! I actually consider that a compliment - I watch lots of shows on Bravo.
p.s. I thought Lisa was going to win until I saw the demos - Aaron's demo was just so darn good.

I have to say I was terribly disappointed in the FN!!! As a foodie, I would be much more inclined to watch a show hosted by someone who knew what...I don't know... a chipotle is!!!.....and how to really use it! Also, I can't seem to get over remembering Aaron talk about his son running away (in an early episode) and how he just left his family (yes, with his son still recently gone) to participate in this show. I thought FN was a "family network" - you know...get your kids in the kitchen! But I guess it is hard to "get your kids in the kitchen" if you don't even know where they are...and obviously, don't care enough to "sacrifice" a chance to be a "STAR"! I won't watch his show.....he'll be just another Amy Finley or Hearty Boys...a one season fluke!!!

I loved Lisa - I'm the anonymous who wrote the bit about Kelsey, Shanne, and karma above - but I also liked Amy so I feel the need to defend her here a bit. Amy said in an interview that she was offered a second season. She turned them down to spend more time with her family and moved to France. In a way, I respect that a lot; in another, I wonder why she didn't decide what she really wanted before she threw her name in the hat.

As for Adam Roberts, he and the other folks on that viewing party blog were quite vicious and shallow regarding Lisa throughout the season; if he now is treated in kind, it might remind him to be a little bit more diplomatic and a lot less mean-spirited in the future. Glass houses, Adam, glass houses.

FN Dish is a little douche for my taste. This season really turned me off to FN and I swear
FOOD NETWORK ADDCIT is the only reason I watched FN at all this season.
I am now watching KQED American Test kitchens.
That poorly posted pre release of the winner was planned and I am sorry I am a fan of Food Network Addict FN Dish is a pr tool.

I think I will check in with FN when there is nothing on Discovery Channel because this season is full of reruns, repeats, and not very original themes ...do we all remember Chocolate week. Ugh.

This is clearly a hatchet job done by the Network to let Shane, Kelsey, and Kevin do their dirty work for them.
The judges/FN KNEW that picking Aaron was going to be a controversial decision and that Lisa was the overall better choice but they had to contrive a way to justify their decision. So, they get 3 enbittered losers to reassure the audience that "Lisa bad, Aaron good."

Adam Roberts,

Please file those two front teeth down ASAP. You're gonna hurt someone with your overzealous hickey giving!

Sincerely,

lisa sucked and karma came back to bite her. shes too unlikable despite her family on here posting positive things about her.

AARON IS THE WINNER...WAY TO GO !We will ALL be watching your 1st show THIS SUNDAY@ 1:30/ 2:30central.
The judges, the VIEWERS, the CONTESTANTS all wanted Aaron to win, that speaks volumes. There is a huge reason every one of the contestants all had great things to say about Aaron, AND.........Nothing but "no comment" type looks about lisa. It wasn't because she wore nice clothes..good grief, please!
Like lisa said "she didn't need to win anyway she really didn't NEED it like Aaron..Give me a break. Sore loser that's EASY to see.

OMG, this dude is worse than "Baba Wawa". He says everything like he has a mouthfull of marbles and water! I know perhaps he cannot help this but one would think that if you have a speech impediment, gigs involving public speaking aren't for you.

Oh! Speaking of people who have issues with their speech (perhaps ones they cannot help), has anyone noticed Paula, like Barbara, cannot say the letter 'r' correctly in many words? Seriously, she says it like it's a "w", particularaly if the "r" comes in the middle of a word or is the second letter of the word.

Kevin? I remember the color of the kitchen counter more than I remember him. He was that relevant to this show. To anonymous a few steps up, how do you know the viewers wanted Aaron to win? If you base things on FN's own favorite contestant poll, they wanted Kelsey with Aaron and Lisa polling distantly behind in second and third. If you base it on what foodie forums throughout the net are saying, it seems it should have been Lisa. Most people on the largest forum where this show was discussed also wanted Lisa to win as well. Whatever, though; it's - thankfully over and we now get to watch a show that sounds like it's going to feature a guy wearing a feathered pimp hat.

Re, amateur gourmet guy Adam. Since the finale was filmed way back when, he knew who had won and what the other contestants thought before he watched the show on his viewing party eps....which explains why they were so incredibly biased and lopsided. Of course, I suppose they could have watched all the shows before the finale occurred...and changed into different clothes each time, etc., but that hardly seems likely. More likely - just the FN treating its viewers like idiots. And my favorite moment of those priceless, rigged Dish viewing party video blogs? When Lisping Adam, Seriously Dishevelled Bill, and Quickly Expanding Sunny Lisa for having a distracting squint...because you know, none of their physical traits are in the least distracting.

Right - when someone posts something positive about Lisa they must be a member of her family...because...? How narrow minded must one be to not be able to fathom that people see things in different ways? I don't begrudge anyone liking one of the other contestants; hell I liked Aaron and Adam too. But I preferred Lisa as a potential cooking show hostess and I don't know Lisa from Adam (pun intended). She must also have a hell of a big family scattered all over the place because there are lots of positive messages about her on lots of different forums. THAT is what has annoyed me about this whole thing: it's evidently not enough to be happy for the winner; some of the other finalists and some viewers feel the need to also trash Lisa just for trashing sake and somehow want to "prove" they're right by stating "everyone" hate her, etc. which is absolute bullshit. No one gets to speak for everyone; you only get to speak for yourself.

"feathered pimp hat"...

WOW that sure hits the nail on the head and perfectly states the words I've been searching for to explain how I feel when I hear the phrase "Big Daddy's House". Really, I find it degrading and racist. NEVER would you even contemplate titling a show a white guy was hosting by the same name.

 
At 7/30/2008 6:54 PM , Anonymous Melon_Lord said...

So,was "Big Daddy's House" really a name that Aaron made up,or was it something FN told Aaron to say was the name people called him(off camera mabey)and was a title he thought up?The world may never know.

What "diffrent forums are you refering to concerning all the positive comments about lisa? I have not seen them.
I've olny noted an abundance of negative comments.

I see more negative comments about Aaron now that he has Won.
More negative lisa comments now that she has Lost.
Hum.

I can't believe the comments towards Kelsey and the others just because they wanted Aaron or Adam to win after Lisa had been so mean to most all of them!! I heard Lisa's comments to them and about them that she said on camera. That was mean of Lisa but yet when Kelsey and the others decide they did not want Lisa to win some people have a fit about it. I am surprised they did not have more mean comments to say about Lisa after Lisa had treated most all of them so mean!!!!!

How one sided some can be!

Implying most at the Foodnetwork blog wanted Lisa to win. I guess they forgot all the comments about Lisa being a witch, and making fun of everything from Lisa's hairstyle to her shoes and other really degrading comments that I did NOT agree with them using that language but the point is there were MANY against Lisa winning the entire time! The so called many fans of Lisa were the same ones posting over and over again about stating Lisa shold had won but there were just as many Aaron fans there but not as many of them were posting over and over.

As far as Aaron's speech. I liked what I read one poster said that is a good friend of Aaron's that he was ok with constructive criticism such as Aaron needs to talk plainer (although we and many others can understand Aaron just fine) but to make comments such as Aaron sounding like he had a mouthfull of marbles, those kinds of comments are vicious! I agree.

While I could care less about dress and hairstyles, Lisa's bad attitute to others I did care about and that is why I don't like her and would never watch her show. And her comment about Aaron winning was terrible in my opinion!

 
At 8/04/2008 1:32 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I know there is more than one video posted but the comment Lisa stated that in my opinion implied she was better than Aaron so Aaron needed to win more, I can't remember which video it was on?

You might agree Lisa is better than Aaron but it's a turn off to me for others to come across that way about themself!
