A Plea to Late-Night and Early-Morning Bloggers


So, have any of you been watching The Next Food Network Star? It's basically the Food Network's version of American Idol, and the winner gets to be the star of a new cooking show. Taylor, Grandma, and I have been watching it faithfully for the last few weeks (Sunday nights at 9!) and now the competition is down to two women--Rory and Amy. After weeks of elimination by the Food Network people, America now gets to vote on the winner. That's where you and I come in. I have appointed myself to be on the VOTE4AMY campaign. I will try not to be too negative here... Suffice it to say, we don't like Rory. She's not as poised, not as classy, doesn't have as much of a focused idea for a show, sassed Alton Brown (our favorite Food Network personality), insulted one of her competitors in a radio interview, and shows too much cleavage. Amy is darling, well-spoken, fun, real, has a very focused show idea ("The Gourmet Next Door"), and-in our opinion-has totally worked it in the various challenges (including an Iron Chef competition and appearing on Rachael Ray). Let's just say we love Amy. And if Rory wins, we'll boycott her show. So, if you care to, you can click HERE and vote for Amy. But hurry! All votes have to be in by tomorrow (Tues.) morning at 9:00!

P.S. This post not trivial enough for you? More Trivial Tuesday to come...

Oh my golly, I totally hope Amy wins! I don't catch the show on Sundays, but I try and catch the reruns during the week...and I am totally an Amy fan! She is totally a personality I would watch on the food network! I love the food network...it's been a great comfort over the last few weeks! I watched Paula Dean make her own butter today, after all that is her favorite ingredient! She makes me giggle.

My vote is in for Amy, thanks for the heads up...I didn't even know I could do that!

Sorry I missed it. I guess I should have checked the blog first thing this morning. I would have voted.

How does America vote for someone if they have never tasted their food? That would be a huge part for me. (I have never seen it though. Maybe I am missing the point.)

I vote for Taylor...I still think that HE should have been on that show. Trav and I are pretty regular watchers of the food network too, but I have to say that I don't watch that show regularly. We like Amy though (Trav thinks the other girl is annoying). I think she will win anyway, even though I didn't vote in time. Kate the Paula Dean thing makes me giggle too. I am glad someone else likes butter as much as I do. I think she is so funny. But mostly I like it when you impersonate her accent.

It's all about Amy! We are also watching Top Chef too on Bravo! Can you believe how domesticated I am getting?
