I just get a "I'm doing a cold read at a Cheerios commercial audition" kind of vibe from him.
Anyhow, I've really enjoyed reading all of your comments on episode 5. Lots of you out there seem to have pretty positive opinions of Shane:
"Seriously, Shane is about the only one I can watch without being in pain"
"He's doing good work, there really is no young-young FN star right now, and he could fit a niche."
"Last night gave me more hope for Shane, and honestly, I'd rather watch him than Lisa or Kelsey anyday."
"Shane, obviously is the only one of them that has some talent in both fields and probably will end up winning."
"I am now pulling for Shane more than ever. He's the only one I'd be inclined to watch unless they give one of the others ALOT of presentation/cooking coaching."
Perhaps I'm just bitter because if Shane were to win, the comparisons to Dave Lieberman would start popping up... the youth, gourmet made easy on a budget, etc.—and Dave Lieberman he is not.
ALTHOUGH, come to think of it, Dave was pretty awful on camera in his early episodes. Luckily, he just had to do something cute, like... umm... lie on some shopping carts and he'd redeem himself. =)
So I'm torn.
