Aaron seems to be really down-home, but it seems like he would run out of recipes within a season. And I've never felt that Adam was knowledgeable. I mean, his "signature" dish is mac and cheese! Come on! Babycakes1234 7 years I think Lisa has the best chance at a successful show. Adam doesn't have a chance and although I like Aaron, I think there are already a few shows that feature his type of cooking. Plus I think it's a hoot to watch Lisa in her nice dresses and heels...not at all real life but hey, she looks good doing it. Except for those eyes. What's up with that? Maybe she needs glasses. At least she's got style. Spectra 7 years I don't think any of the "FN Stars" have been successful except for Guy. From this season, I liked Kelsey the best...even though she was really young, she did really well on most of the cooking challenges. Lisa just seems kind of b*tchy to me and Adam has really no clue as to how to actually cook. It's no wonder that his restaurant closed. I think Aaron should win...he can cook really well and I think he can be approachable. I started liking him more after his RR show spot...it seemed like he was the only one that was actually cooking with the girl he was paired with. I hope Kelsey ends up with a show though. Remember Nathan Lyon, the bald guy from Guy's season? He has his own show on the Discovery Health channel and it's pretty good. I think he would've won if he hadn't been competing against Guy. rainydaybleus 7 years does it matter? unless you are cheesy as all hell like guy, FN cans your show after a few airings. top chef rules :) arcticpuppet 7 years I don't like any of them! I think Kelsey should not have been kicked off. She was like Giada, only blonde and not as pushy. Also, she has my name, so that was like a plus for me. godeats 7 years We need LESS "home cooking" on the Food Network. Though there are things about Lisa that annoy me, I'd love to see someone with some grace and skill whooping it up over there. I've had enough of the loud, overly accented, down home, "middle America" hosts. There are enough of them already. I want to watch someone cook something I wouldn't be embarrassed to serve at a dinner party, and I think once Lisa chills out a little, she'll be fine. We've seen flashes of it here and there. The woman that won last season seems to have faded away into the background--she had a nice French approach, but her show was intolerably produced and she always acted like she had, just out of camera-view, eels or something else creepy slipping around her ankles and she was just doing everything she could to keep from letting on. Holy uneasy, Batman! Hopefully they'll give the new winner a better platform. NdHebert 7 years No one really is good, and out of the past 2 seasons only one of the winners have been successful. I predict whoever wins will have their show, then we will never hear about them again. None of them offer anything that is already taught on Food Network. kea718 7 years Watching Lisa makes me feel like I need a xanax, she's waaayyy too high strung. Adams personality is kinda assholish. I like Aaron away from the on-camera challenges so I really hope he continues warming up to the camera. mks0880 7 years I wouldn't watch any of them. Adam's annoying, Aaron's boring, and Lisa was so mean to some of the other contestants. I just don't like her. tmariej 7 years Its a toss between Lisa and Adam but I think Adam cooks more the way people might cook everyday. And he seems to have a good personality. ilanac13 7 years to be honest, i don't know who i think should win - i am an avid FN viewer and none of them really grab me. it's hard. guy was an anomoly and i think that i'm not wowed by anyone this season. oh well...i'm sure someone will win - get a few shows - and that will be the end of that. millarci 7 years I like them all but I don't think any of them has what it takes to hold their own show. I agree with Guy that if only we can fuse them all together as one person... macgirl 7 years Maybe if they changed Lisa's eye makeup and threw some eyeliner on her- as it stands now she looks like my stoner uncle when she smiles. Although I think she has the best shot. LaurenG22 7 years I think I respect Lisa's cooking skills the most, but aaron's food looks tasty too! :) lawchick 7 years I like all of their personalities, but I don't think any of them have to skill and polish to have their own show (yet). I would not watch any of them on their own show. seven7 7 years I'm with hippiecowgirl. I think Aaron has the most potential, and Lisa lost me at about the same point, although if Aaron doesn't win...she should. I don't like Adam at all. So he can smoke stuff...big deal. He had Shane there his last challenge to help him along. (I really liked Shane when he was still there.) Aaron's food has been consistently good with exception of last weeks challenge. I really do hope he wins... hippiecowgirl 7 years I voted for Aaron. He's not perfect, but I think he could be taught to play to the camera more. Lisa lost it for me when she froze up on the RR show and I'm just not a fan of Adam at all. StefaPie 7 years Lisa's squinty eyes freak me out a little, and Aaron's joke about eating disorders was really distasteful. So I guess I vote for the one that offends me the least. mom2ross 7 years I'm just glad this will be over on Sunday. It's just not an exciting season this year, everyone is kind of...blah. I couldn't watch any of them for a full half hour. Everytime Lisa smiles, her eyes disappear into a Jack-O-Lantern type of triangle, it's just very odd.
