I like the idea of having someone that brings a more healthy view to some of the recipes (without being preachy) but she is not it.
Daphne is pretty and pleasant. I don't think that's enough to warrant being on a show like this. When it comes to "knowing things", she doesn't seem to and I've been disappointed that she brings no ideas or information about the health and nutrition--she lacks authority and really doesn't have anything to contribute.
Carla can grow--Daphne just seems like, with all her opportunities, this is who she is and what she knows (not much).
I love the idea of Claire Robinson. She's pretty (that seems the "Daphne slot") and also articulate, experienced on camera and knowledgable about food. Unlike Daphne, they could build some segments around her.
Originally I thought Daphne would work out and wasn't just there because of her father. Now I really do think that's the reason she's there. It isn't on her own merits at all. She doesn't even have good chemistry with the panel--doesn't really "spark" anything and Carla could be a lot better if she had a woman with personality to play off of.
They should get someone else.
