Happy Sunday! It’s the start of a new week—the last day of June! Time flies. It’s also gonna be a short work week for most people because of Independence Day on Thursday, the 4th of July. My husband has both Thursday & Friday off work, my kid is gone this week to visit my family in Oklahoma, so I’m gonna have a good week. 😉 And that starts tonight, with some fun new episodes! Check out what we recommend you watch.
Last week on Food Network Star, the contestants got to relax at the movies—NOT! Instead, they were split up into teams of three and had to draw themes to determine what genre of movie they would not only cooking for, but performing a trailer for in order to promote their food: Romance, Musical, or Western. The trailers were a mixed bag. The Romance was a little cheesy, got a little raunchy, but was pretty good. The musical was pretty funny, but mainly because two of the three have terrible voices, and the one that CAN sing mumbled so much you couldn’t understand it all. The Western was the best. I really enjoyed it—and apparently, so did the audience, as they were the top vote getters. Rodney, Lovely, and Viet were in the bottom three. Viet is too shy/awkward in front of the camera. If he could put out food that the judges know he can in addition to coming more alive in front of the audience/camera, he’d be golden. Rodney hasn’t been consistent with his food—even the pies, which is odd, since he’s the pie king. So he needs to step up his game. The judges feel he has promise, though, so he stayed. In the end, Lovely, who was having big trouble with her food, was the one sent home, which I was more than okay with.
On tonight’s episode, “4th of July Live,” the remaining contestants are challenged to take part in live television scenarios where “E! News” host Terrence Jenkins will test them. The competitors assist with a special Fourth fo July show that offers recipe & party tips (much like the Food Network Thanksgiving special each year, it sounds like!).
See the fun tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing HGTV Star, Whodunnit?, Crossing Lines, Falling Skies, & Iron Chef America.
