Food Network Star - official site (http://www.foodnetwork.com/the-next-food-network-star/index.html)

Season Eight premiers tonight!

So...it is Team Alton vs. Team Giada vs. Team Bobby? Competition is going to be like The Biggest Loser now? Not sure how I feel about this...or whose team I would want to be on.

I watched the "Introduction" show last night.
The mentor/teams seem to each be searching for different types.

This could be interesting.

Bobby says that he can teach a "savvy" person to cook.
Alton has no patience with anyone without skills; and the ability to communicate them.
Giada wants someone who "reaches" the viewer.

I have a feeling Giada's team is going to get killed in the early challenges.

The new format seems kind of like The Voice to me-superficially. I'll see how it works when attached to Food Network Star.

Well, Bobby has experience with split teams (that's how they do "Worst Cook In America"-Team Bobby vs. Team Anne.)

Team Bobblehead, Team Know-It-All, and Team My-God-I-used-to-be-a-respected-chef-and-Anthony-Bourdain-is-so-totally-going-to-write-a-Scathing-Blog-about-me.

I'm on Team MgIutbarcaabistgtwaSBam

...Bobby Flay was respected? I never met anyone who actually cooks for a living who thinks he's anything but an egocentric a-hole with an overblown estimation of his own abilities. Though he DOES seem to have mellowed a lot being on TV, oddly enough.

Alton's eliminated team member (can't recall her name) was so terrible it was :rofl:. And the only explanation for Josh is that Giada wants some :grope: .

On another note, were a couple of those folks from Chopped?

I think the spikey haired woman Michele who made the mussels did Chopped

About half of the chef's have NO chance

Contrary to what some believe, you have to be able to make tasty food.
It was amazing that some dishes presented didn't even seem to reach the level of good "home cooking".

The new format is just awkward.

My sister is a professional chef, and she and her colleagues have a lot of respect for him. They may not like him, but that's a different animal. The only chef I've heard speak negatively about Flay is Bourdain, and I think a lot of that is pure jealousy. I've eaten in his restaurants in New York and Vegas and they were :swoon:

I suspect Bourdain is jealous/envious of many successful chefs.

I guess you've met many people who cook for a living and discussed this?

Because the evidence would suggest that many other people have the opposite view - he has a bunch of successful restaurants, has had a series of his own shows going back to 1996 and guested on many others, and he has a bookshelf full of best sellers.
