The pie I’m most looking forward to see from Rodney is “humble pie” and when he does, I want him to eat that “sucker” too. So far, he doesn’t care about advice or feedback, because he thinks that everything he does is great, when mostly it hasn’t been. I won’t be surprised if he wins. He and Russell, appeal perfectly to the viewers FN cares the most now, the Mystery Diners, Restaurant Stakeout crowd.
When she shimmies, raises her arms and poses, Damaris reminds me of Anna Nicole Smith and when she’s calmed, she looks like Taylor Swift with her deer in the headlights face. She’s a Southern “dumbelle.” Where’s Martie?
Nikki Dinki sounds like the name of a Nick cartoon. After winning the Chopped challenge, she entered the stew room doing a funny dance and, since then I called her “little Ellen,” especially if she has upswept hair or braid ponytails. After that, she’s becoming more of a comic and airhead with little cooking authority. Saw a couple of her internet shows and reminded me of Melissa’s TDD. If I believe TDD’s just a tad more pleasant than Nicki’s show, there’s a problem and we know where TDD is now.
Chad has been portraying kind of a Jeff Mauro. His nickname is BBQ King (they call him BBQ Guy on FNS), wears plaid shirts and, like Jeff, is focused and the finalist that’s friends with everybody and isn’t involved in drama. Difference is that he lacks personality. On his Twitter page, I found out that his brother is Reid Rosenthal, 2nd runner up of season 5 of The Bachelorette, was on Bachelor Pad and as realtor, hosted an episode of HGTV’s My First Place. Given that, I thought he might had given Chad advice about how to perform in front of a camera on a reality show but, contrary to the premiere in which he was pretty good, he’s becoming pretty boring.
Unlike Chad, Russell has glimpses of charisma, has the gift of gab but lacks cooking chops and its getting repetitive seeing him on the bottom, to be saved and saying that it was a humbling experience.
After looking at Stacey posing seductively on that newspaper article, I thought that Damaris was the slutty one on the show. Why did she have to do that to promote being on the show or her restaurant? Yes…I know she has a restaurant and a kid and a husband so, why does she have to remind it every week? We got it!
I thought last season’s finalists were the worst but, to do them justice, I think this season looks more than Worst Cooks and, to listen to Bobby and Alton while promoting FNS, saying that this is the best season and the best group, in terms of cooking and performing (Alton even called Rodney “the whole package”), makes me have little credibility about them. Given, every reality promotes a new season as “the best yet” but, to praise this bunch to the stratosphere is unbelievable.
