Adam Gets His Own Show on Food Network

The Food Network has announced that the Next Food Network Star runner-up, Adam Gertler, will have his own series. The show will feature Adam demonstrating how food-industry insiders perform their jobs. Entitled "Will Work For Food," the series is scheduled to debut on Sept. 30 at 9:30 p.m. Bob Tushman, a judge on NFNS and senior vice president of Programing and Production for the Food Network explained why Gertler gets his own show:

On the Next Food Network Star Adam exhibited a unique combination of quick wit, passion for food, and an engaging personality. He earned millions of fans across the country who have let us know that we have a second star in our midst. We feel this series is a perfect fit for his talents, letting him showcase his brand of humor while he works for food.

I preferred Adam to the winner Aaron McCargo Jr. and am excited Adam was rewarded a show. How about you? Will you watch Adam on the Food Network?

Lisa was the best with the food. I was so excited to see her show and was disappointed when she lost. I feel bad for her being the only one without a show and I think Food Network is really stupid. They don't know how to pick anyone. America should have voted like on Design Star.

I voted for him on their online contest/poll. I'll watch his show.

I liked Adam and Aaron equally, so I am glad both got shows. Lisa was too frantic for me to watch, but I hope she comes out with a cookbook or something.

I'll definitely watch. I was hoping that he would be the winner out of the final three. Aaron was my last pick. I just didn't really see his appeal.

Lisa was ok but I prefered Adam's and Aaron's food. Some of the sauces Lisa made and PRONOUNCED were annOYing.

I bet Lisa will get her own show, too, but I don't think it'll be on FN. I think Fine Living or Home Garden Network would air it though...her style is more chichi than the other finalists were. But I really did like Adam's show idea and I'm glad he got a slot. Also, I saw the premiere of Aaron's show and I was very pleasantly surprised at how good it was. What did everyone else think?

I liked Adam and Aaron. Lisa was ok but her squinting and haircut got on my nerves. I know that's ugly to say but I just did not find her as personable to watch. I agree though that all 3 should have a show since the other 2 finalist got one. They all 3 would reach different range of audience.

I was actually rooting for Adam over all of them. I think he's funny. So I'll definitely watch his show.

I like Lisa too! I want her to have a show. But I will def watch Adam's show. I wanted him or Lisa to win, but Aaron, not so much...

I would definitely watch Adam. I think Lisa needs a show too that combines her knowledge/love of food w/her knack for designing and what not, sort of like their own Martha Stewart type where she could show how to completely throw a party, make a brunch etc., from cooking to setting the table. I didn't really like Aaron at all and thought that was a mistake.

One word: NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I thought he was extremely annoying and I would never watch his show. I think there were other, much better contestants who deserved this chance.

see this is what happens when they don't let the public vote - like they have in previous years. i think that it's wonderful that he gets his own show, and i guess lisa will be the odd man out since 2 out of 3 have a show. :)

How come he gets a better time slot than Aaron?!?

Nope. I never really liked Adam at all, but I would totally check out a show with Lisa.

I preferred Adam to Aaron as well. But I was really excited that both the winner and runner-up were local Philly boys. Yay for the 'delphia!
