Yea, I don't think she would make a FN star just yet... maybe one day down the road. But I think Aaron has come a long way!

I just kinda felt like she was talking down to me ( the viewer)

Both Adam and Aaron I liked. Honestly , I thought Adam presented himself a little better, but im really curious to try those plantains :)

Yeah, and considering im a vegetarian, he must have done a great job to impress me

Ill actually go out and buy some plantains tomorrow. We had a cuban restaurant around here that served them, but has recently gone out of business. So, i was looking for a new way to cook them up.

So, now with Hells Kitchen over, and now The next FN star complete, im looking foward to the Kitchen Disaster's new season, because Gordon Ramsay was in a restaurant 2 minutes from my house, and Im curious to see how he ripped them apart. The restaurant is still in business.

I have to say that I am NOT impressed with the judges' choices, aside from
Big Bite Guy, of course.

They seem to pick cooking skills and knowledge over TV appeal.
Not the smartest move for a TELEVISION channel.

Heck, half of the time the hosts are eating in a diner, drive-in, dive or other
restaurant.... don't need cooking skills there, just gustatorial enthusiasm and...
TELEVISION APPEAL.

But no, they pick people who, in my opinion, are snoozers on the tube.
Aaron.... his TV presence is too.... fake for me. Nothing like his regular
personality, that I could see from the show.

Cooking can be learned... appeal is innate.
Wanna bet Aaron is a one season wonder, like everyone else, aside from Guy?

Yeah I think Guy for sure is the best choice so far...
But I never watched a season until yesterday.
What ever happened to the 2 guys that won the first season.... besides they put me to sleep but they made some good stuff.

hubby and I laid on our bed last night watching the finale.
he asked who I though would win.
I thought all of their promo's were really good, very surprised.
after thinking, I told him Aaron might just end up the winner, he agreed.
two seconds later he did.

I just love that he's done with his life what he has,
it sounds like he had it pretty rough and rose above it.
I love a Cinderella story!
