Poll: Have You Been Watching The Next Food Network Star?

Have You Been Watching Season 5's Next Food Network Star?

The fifth season of The Next Food Network Star is now four episodes deep, and I'm wondering how much you've been tuning in to watch it. After four seasons, does the show still feel compelling and fresh?

I've never been drawn to this show.

I agree with mom2ross, it seems like they're picking personalities over people who can cook. But I do watch the show religiously, it's one of the few shows both my husband and I can watch together since he hates tv. I'm rooting for Melissa, the stay at home Mom, because I'm one too!

While I would agree with most of these comments - as in, I kind of shake my head at the contestants for the most part - I've watched Chefography enough to see Bobby, Giada and others during their early days on TV and they weren't that great either. I think it's a rarity to find someone who has the cooking skill, personality and ideas to carry a show without a lot of practice.

Right on, Partysugar! Like the presidential elections-are these the best candidates they could come up with?

I enjoy it and you do need personality to be on TV and I don't think they're all that bad. C'mon it's a reality show, don't expect too much or you'll be VERY disappointed. Besides I'm making garlic bread :drool: for my burgers tonight, thanks to Michael. (I think that's who made it).

Why was my earlier comment flagged and removed? I didn't think I said anything bad...

i used to make sure that i tuned in to watch this - but to be honest, after seeing the results of the winner - aside from Guy - i'm not really overly excited about anyone - so i haven't even paid even a second of attention to this year.

It seems like Food Network has gone somewhat downhill in the past few years. Most of the truly talented chefs are gone, with the exception of Bobby Flay. And I feel bad for him, they make him do the dumbest things. He should move over to the Travel Channel with Anthony Bourdain and Mario Batali.

They seem to look for characters, not chefs and/or cooks.

I've watched every episode so far and I can't help but wonder about it. The Food Network really couldn't find any better finalists? These people are horrible!
