Today Stu ventured over to WKRG to show John Nodar how to make a fried Reuben just like the ones he makes at LUCKY – Irish Pub & Grill.

Recap Food Network Star S9 E10

FNS9banner 555x173 Food Network Star S9 E8

The latest season of Food Network Star is underway and the latest round of wannabe TV chefs have begun their quest. We’ve seen first impressions and heard what the judges think but what the world really wants to know is what I think. Let’s do this.

If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode STOP! Watch it HERE first and then come back. It’s a frickin recap, yo!

Pitch Perfect: The four finalists get their chance to pitch a show to Food Network. Executives Bob Tuschman and Susie Fogelson are back to choose the final three: Based on the finalists’ presentations, Bob and Susie will greenlight three concepts, which will be made into pilots directed by season two Food Network Star winner Guy Fieri.

Last week’s aw the ouster of the only real competition Stacey had.  But you can’t blame the judges, she had a terrible week.  Still, I’d watch a show hosted by Nikki.  Stacey is the clear winner of the contest.  The only that could keep her from bring the next Food Network Star is if this is yet another rigged season.

Now for my take on each:

AXON Daniela Perez Reyes s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Eliminated week 1.
AXON Andres Guillama s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Eliminated week 2.
AXON Danushka Lysek Horizon s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Eliminated week 3.
AXON Connie Lovely Jackson Horizon s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Eliminated week 4 and again in week 8.
AXON Viet Pham s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Eliminated week 5.
AXON Chris Hodgson s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Eliminated week 6.
AXON Nikki Dinki s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Eliminated week 9.
AXON Damaris Phillips Horizon s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Damaris’ first idea was a modern South approach.  The mentors didn’t care for it.  Her second idea was the old “how to cook to land a mate” vehicle.  The network’s done it before.  The mentors convince her to spin it into “how to cook to land a mate” with my grandma’s recipes.  I liked the first one much better.  Her pitch was great.
AXON Rodney Henry s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Rodney’s first idea was not bad.  His second idea was terrible.  The mentors helped take the first idea and make it great.  His pitch was a little schizophrenic but for the most part it was concise and charming.
AXON Russell Jackson Horizon s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Russell’s first idea was not very good.  The second idea was not much good either.  After talking to the mentors he formed a new idea that wasn’t much better.  His pitch was quite good; better than the concept itself.
AXON Stacey Poon Kinney s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Both of Stacey’s ideas were solid but the mentors helped form to good ideas into one great idea.  Her pitch was exactly what Bob and Susie always look for but for someone reason this time they didn’t care for it much.  I smell a rat.
AXON Chad Rosenthal s4x3 lead Food Network Star S9 E8
Eliminated week 7.

The person who will NOT be the next Food Network Star is…

Stacey.

I give up.
