What Do You Think of Jag's Behavior?

What Do You Think of Jag's Behavior?

If you had an ounce of respect left for Next Food Network Star contestant Jag, I have a feeling it's about to dissipate. Our friends at Food Network Addict are reporting that Jag offered to reveal the finalists (a super reality TV no-no) in exchange for keeping his background a secret.

"In a bid to preserve his shot at a six-episode Food Network series deal, Garcia revealed in those interviews that he was one of the final two contestants. Military Times did not include this claim in previous stories because it was not clear whether this was another lie, and to protect the integrity of the show."

Wow. That is really something else. What do you guys think? Do you like Jag?

what the hell is wrong with him? - oops.

People like this make me angry. He acts like it's no big deal what he did, like he's going to bounce back from it, shake it off and get right back to cooking, like it's an injury or something. What the hell is him? Seriously!

From the very beginning, I thought there was something off about this guy. I could hardly believe he made it to the final two. Besides his shady behavior, he's a total Emeril rip-off! Good riddance.

I don't watch this show, but I would hate to know who the final contestants were for a reality show I was beauty and geek or something! What a way to turn off your fans!

He's a big selfish jerk. He misrepresented himself and STOLE somebody else's place in that contest. Unfortunately, he made his mistakes on tape and is going to have to live with them over and over again.

I agree millarci. Dr. Jeyll and Mr. Hyde is a good way to put it. He seemed like he was really good in the kitchen! I wonder what he did to get kicked out of culinary school...

He always came across kind of "smarmy" to he was up to something. I wasn't too surprised by the whole thing.

Did anyone else think that his "apology" on the last episode was completely insincere? Everything about him seemed forced, esp. towards the last few episodes of the show. There was always something about him that rubbed me the wrong way...I agree Ejmcmis, I like Amy but think Rory will win...

JAG was basically a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I believe that he did have what it takes to be the NFNS, but his Mr. Hyde side came out more than it should. It's ashame that it worked out this way. I've been an Amy fan from the beginning, but I've enjoyed watching JAG as well. HIs confession seem over dramatic but jaw dropping. I couldn't believe he would lie about his background. And what's ashame is that I there was no need to lie.

I don't even watch the show but I read the other post about him and as someone with two brothers in the military- one of which is scheduled to leave for Iraq soon(as well as a long family history of relatives who had been in the service) I am APPAULED that the show would even keep him on for lying about something like he did- then revealing elements of the show? What a loose lipped lying moronic sack of - - - -. PMSing today....

As a Hispanic, I feel ashamed of him. He needs to do better and obviously the ethical line of right and wrong, is not one that he is familiar with. People like this (with that blurred ethical line) always end up in these kind of situations. Bottom line, he wasn't one the final two after all, was he? Nor did he deserve to be. . On another note, stemming from those incidents, although I originally was behind JAG, I am totally about Amy. I think she's amazing and poised (hello, the Iron Chef Challenge... she killed it!). . I'm thinking however that Rory is going to win because she's got A: big boobies & B: big personality . The judges seemed to favor Rory though because they kept letting her keep going in the competition even through several scrw ups. Hello, she insulted Alton Brown in front of the judges. Yes, we're back to the iron chef episode. It's just I'm convinced that she should have been kicked off in that episode. . . Anyway, AMY rocks!!!!

He wanted to be on the FN to show a true latino POV, and instead made himself look like a fool.

I guess I'm not surprised at all, but my disappointment with the Food Network continues to grow, why are they not suing him for breach of his contract, which no doubt included keeping his mouth shut about being a finalist? How many chances is this guy going to get from them? First they allow him to resign after he claimed to be in a war zone-- which I find beyond disgusting, now this?! I truly just want this guy to disappear and not get another ounce of attention. He clearly has issues with being a "victim" and blaming everyone else for his life circumstances besides his own lying, deceitful self.

I'm not surprised. I was wondering if he would just go away or if he would try to turn himself into a reality tv "bad guy" and try to get on other shows using that persona...ala Omorosa or that guy who lied about his grandmother having died on Survivor.

I wouldn't even hire him as a line cook, now. This is obviously someone with no integrity at all.

How terrible. Not that I had respect for him in the first place (I couldnt stand the way he acted on the show), but he will NEVER make it in the entertainment world.
