I think we all can agree that judging by the caliber of shows and the number of pseudo-chefs on FN, their slogan pretty much means nothing.

I gave up on this show after two episodes. It was like watching a bunch of 5 year olds trying to play organized baseball. The only two shows that I watch on FN now are ICA and Ace of Cakes.

Lots of us watched last night and no one can seems to agree with the decision to keep JAG. He is certainly not someone I would ever watch on TV, but I really don't care for any of them. He was crying about his Iron Chef episode, the couldn't believe he didn't buy peppers, etc. and yet they never send him home. I never saw the Hearty Boys Show, it must have never been on at a time when I was home. How was it?

Well I don't know about that. If they could only let one person go then I think they picked the right person. In fact, based on cooking skill and personality (one of them at least), I think he beats out Rory too.

Well the July 15th show was a bit of a twist.

It never pays to lie.

finally was able to catch up on it, after having missed two of the episodes.
so it's down to "those two." don't want this to be a spoiler so I won't say the names just in case you've not seem them either.
but if either of them wins, I have no reason to watch.
felt the contestants were very weak this season, just my not so humble opinon is all.

Well, big surprise. I watched all of those shows because there's not alot on in the summer, but I never could understand how the finalists were chosen. It always seemed like the worst ones got to move to the next round, and the only thing that saved us from one of them was the FN's lack of research on who they put on TV.

The one show I missed. What happened? I am not impressed with this show much either, and as another poster said, I'm a bit shocked at the rudeness of some of the regular hosts. It almost makes their TV persona seem fake.

You got that right, Sunny.

Jag lied about being in Afghanistan or Iraq or wherever, and lied about his culinary history. He fessed up, but only after he was voted to move on to the finals.

What a dope.....what a 'maroon'.

So he withdrew from the competition fearing a media frenzy. -lol

JAG got "outed" by the Army Times newspaper.
They researched and discovered the truth.

So I believe that had they not researched, he would not
have disclosed the truth.

Sad, really. If he had been honest, he might still be in
the running.

[quote=GrillingFool] but if I had to guess, I would say that
we will be watching Rory's gummy smile on FoodTV.quote]

Sadly you are probably right. I really didn't care for any of the contestants, but if I had to choose it would be Amy.

I'm not sure who I disliked more Paul or JAG.
