Rule #1,782 when you're a contestant on The Next Food Network Star is: only cook your own recipes... and if you're not cooking your own recipes, don't attribute them to Paula Deen, Eddie!
In case you haven't watched yet, Eddie told the judges in the judging room that his watermelon & feta salad that he cooked for INA GARTEN came from a Paula Deen cookbook. Here's a thought, Eddie: if you want to steal a Paula Deen recipe, steal a good one?! Make her fried chicken. Make her blueberry cobbler. Don't make some watermelon salad with raw onion that Paula probably added because Gordon Elliott told her it was watermelon week and she had to think of something.
Quite a lot of drama this week! I could have taken a little less eye rolling on Eddie's part, and a lot less of Teddy's crying. In fact, I would have been fine if both had gone home.
What did you think?
