Who Had The Hardest Commercial?

Last night on the Next Food Network Star the final three had to make a promotional commercial for their show and create an over the top buffet for Las Vegas performers. Former NFNS winner, Guy Fieri, coached the contestants and acted as the guest judge.

While each finalist ran into certain obstacles (Lisa burned her pork, Aaron bombed his introduction, and Adam went smoking crazy), I felt like the promos were totally unfair. Lisa flew through a huge wine cellar and Adam learned a choreographed dance, but Aaron simply walked around a casino.

Did you watch? Whose commercial was the most difficult to shoot?

Lisa's was harder and as mean as it sounds, I was secretly glad. I don't like the attitude/air that she seems to have about her. I was however suprised at how well she could sing. I rooting for Adam. I like his personality.

i think that they were all equally hard to shoot - since they all don't have the experience to do it. i think that for lisa - it was hard cause she was suspended, but it's not like they are loose wires - they are very sturdy and just go up and down. for the guys, they were out of their comfort zone a bit, but they seemed to handle it ok.

Lisa's was by far the hardest...having to remember which button to press for the cables while also memorizing her lines. Adam is still my me he's the most personable and most entertaining. Lisa's hard to relate to and Adam always looks uncomfortable. They could use a funny guy on FN...Alton Brown's humor just doesn't cut it for me.

Yeah Lisa's was the hardest. But all I was thinking when I was watching that part of the show was...oh how I wish I could have a wine cellar like that!

I think Lisa's was definitely the most difficult. I would have been freaking out if I had to be flying around a wine cellar AND having to say my lines. I like Lisa and Aaron, but I don't care much for Adam...he doesn't know how to cook. I personally think the only really GOOD FN star they ever had was Guy. The toolbags that they had on the first season kinda sucked and Amy from last season was OK, but she hasn't really done much.

Lisa's definitely seemed the most difficult.

If one of them actually gets a show, there is no way it will succeed. No tv talent in any of them.

i dont really like any of them-- iwas routing for Kelsey. i watch FN all the time and they would attract more young adults my age if they had a show geared towards them. Kelsey, although not as experienced, could have def. made a hit show where she showed college students/young adults how to make good, inexpensive food or something around that sad shes gone!

Definitely Lisa had the hardest. And Aaron even had Bobby walk around and show him exactly what to do for his commercial. I don't really classify Adam's sideways walking "dancing" either. I'm not sure why I'm still watching - maybe it's all the time invested so far. But I doubt I'll watch the show of whoever wins, unless it's really good. What's funny is that I'm more likely to watch the nighttime programming than the daytime cooking shows. It's just more interesting. They should really incorporate that into their search for the next FN star.

Lisa's commercial was definitely the toughest. Honestly, I don't see any of the 3 of them becoming a "star". Whoever wins will get a shot with their show at horrible time slot and will fade away into oblivion...

Aaron's food has been great consistently, Adam's the one that can't cook. So he knows how to make pizzas and how to smoke stuff, that is really the only thing he knows how to do though.

Both Lisa and Adam had pretty difficult commercials to shoot. Aaron's was ridiculoulsly easy. I really don't get why he's still there. I feel like his cooking isn't nearly as good as everyone else's.

Lisa's actually my favorite to win. She had a difficult commercial and honestly, kind of boring for all the wires and craziness. I couldn't believe the voice on that woman during the intro last night!

Definitely Lisa. That would have freaked me out too, and to try and remember lines as well? Yeah, Aaron and Adam's were EASY PEEZY compared to hers. I still can't stand her though. LMAO
