7 Questions for Brett August - Next Food Network Star Contestant

The season 5 premiere of The Next Food Network Star is this Sunday, June 7 at 9pm ET. All this week, Food Network Addict will be featuring mini, 7-question interviews done with each of the contestants.


Why did you decide to apply to be on The Next Food Network Star?
I felt it was time for the world to see Brett August!

Who are your chef / TV cooking star idols?
Anthony Bourdain.

What does it take to be a great Food Network star?
It's not just about being a great chef, it's all about having great camera presence.

Did you feel prepared for the types of challenges you endured on the show?
I felt as prepared as i was going to be having watched past seasons and being a trained culinary professional.

Anything in particular you struggled with?
Camera presence.

The need to have a clearly defined culinary point of view is brought up again and again by the judges. What's yours and how is it different from what we've seen before?
My culinary point of view is good, simple, food for the family. The difference is, I grew up cooking like that so I can bring a genuine perspective on what works and what doesn't.

You were judged by lots of Food Network stars over the course of the show. Which star(s) were you most excited to meet and why?
Big Daddy himself, Aaron McCargo Jr, because he won the show last year and is someone as a contestant I can respect.

Apart from winning this competition, what goals do you have for the future?
To be a successful on-air chef, or to own my own restaurant, or own my own sporting franchise.


Thanks Brett!

Short, simple, and to the point. I like that I didn't need to settle in to a more comfortable chair to read his answers. I wonder if his on-camera persona is the same way...

This guy was excited to meet Aaron? Sad

He respects Aaron for winning? Aaron didn't win anything he was given the show.

I liked him better in last year's competition when he called himself "Adam".

SO SO SO glad to see Mr. Male Chauvinist go to the wind. I totally smelled a set up against Melissa and am glad he got caught in his own web.
