Of course the geniuses at the Food Network got rid of the best contestant for the Next Food Network Star, Hans. (By the way, getting a show makes you, per se, a "star"?) But at least the voters were smart enough to choose the two guys over Deborah, the "personal celebrity chef."
And did you like Debbie's line when she was asked what she was thinking, just before they revealed the contest winner: "I'm anticipating greatness." Uhh... okay. You should have been anticipating whether you can pay for the bus fare back to your apartment.
And that line so clearly displayed why I couldn't stand her or the other woman. They are complete phonies. At least the other one knew how to cook. Throughout the contest Deborah looked like she was piloting the USS Clueless. On her little talk-show demo she ignored pork chops burning on the grill. Yet they kept her???
I'm sure the main force behind keeping her was that hideously ugly VP of marketing or whatever she was. She would always say how Debbie had a great personality. She probably can't heat up a Lean Cuisine, but so what??? Look at that personality. Ugh.
This explains a lot of what's been happening at the Food Network over the last few years.
