Aaron McCargo Jr., winner of season four of The Next Food Network Star, was featured in yesterday's New York Times. It's a pretty basic article, filled with tidbits that most of you who watched the show will already know.
I find this sentence particularly interesting:
"Fans — 1.2 million, enough for executives to consider renewing the series, according to the network — have taken notice."
Why the hesitation, Food Network?
As for my thoughts, I'm working on a post about Aaron's show, but haven't finished it yet. Sometimes I actually like to put some serious thought into these things if I'm going to be making pretty bold statements.
But to give you a preview: In short, the show is a disaster. The "good"/somewhat surprising news is that it's not Aaron's fault. I'll explain soooooooon. I haven't heard anything that great from you guys, though... so I'm pretty sure you'll agree with me.
