I missed last week's episode. What an episode to miss! My friend Angie gave me the scoop so I found a good webpage with the info on it.

Report: 'Next Food Network Star' finalist lied about military, schooling - Reality TV World - News, information, episode summaries, message boards, chat and games for unscripted television programs

I guess he lied about not only his culinary background, but his military background as well. Not cool.

Here's the part about his false culinary culinary school experience....

(By the way, I called this a few weeks ago. Post #23 of this thread.)

Garcia attended the New York Restaurant School -- now known as the Art Institute of New York City -- following his exit from the Marines, and he told Food Network he was a graduate. Once again, the information he provided proved to be false. Midge Elias, director of public relations at the school, told The Times Garcia never graduated but could not divulge why due to privacy laws.

Pretty soon I'll cansel cable, Food TV is the only reason I'm paying for it. More and more it seems like a waist of money.
Charlie, I could not agree more!!!

just like ingrid hoffman (simply delicioso), it's VERY easy to see why she's on the network.

it's sure not for her pronounciation of "worchestshire" sauce.

I am glad that Amy won. I liked her better than both Rory and Jag.

for what it is worth, I agree. But I don't hold out much expectation for the show.

I think that show started last Saturday. Did anyone see it and does she really seem to know Latin cooking? On her promos advertised on Network Star she says something like, "I hate working in the kitchen. . . . I'm a professional eater." I kept thinking, I don't need an instructional TV show to learn how to eat. The promo seemed very amateurish and artificial to me, even compared to the Network Star contestants.

i had jag #1 because he can flat-out cook.

i had rory #2 because she seems down-to-earth.

i had amy #3 because even though she can cook, she seemed kinda stuck-up.
