Continue reading to see who was eliminated from this episode as well as a quick recap of how the remaining contestants did this episode.
Everyone but Damaris wanted to do a traveling type show in their first pitch to Alton, Bobby, and Giada. After ten episodes, this is supposed to be the first time Alton, Bobby, and Giada knew what the contestants wanted to do for a show? Seems odd that this wouldn't have come up before.
- Stacey Poon-Kinney - Pitched 'Stacey's Modern Magic' and wanted to go to restaurants with vintage dishes and reinvent those dishes to help a restaurant out. Pretty much she wanted to do the last challenge from the show. Stacey was the one eliminated after the first pitch and did not get to shoot a pilot.
- Russell Jackson - Pitched 'Guilty Pleasures' in which he would take normal things and make them 'sinful' by adding bacon. In his pilot, he made bacon, bourbon ice cream, which didn't have much to do with the cabernet sauvignon sorbet flavor that he tried. He pretty much wanted to make bacon, bourbon ice cream, and used the ice cream shop as an excuse to make it.
- Rodney Henry - Pitched 'Pie Style'(DUH). He will take your ingredients and surround them with dough. I am pretty sure Rodney has naked pictures or dirt on someone from Food Network. How has he won everyone over with bad pies and talking too fast? The only one that could get excited about Rodney's pilot would be Guy Fieri. Pie Fieri, Guy Style, Diners Drive-Ins, and Pies. I found it tough to sit through a 2 minute pilot, so a 30 minute show would be torture to sit through. Lot of 'Brothers' and hand shakes.
- Damaris Phillips - Pitched 'Eat, Date, Love' where she would teach men to cook Southern dishes to win over women. In her first part of her pilot, she did nailed the first take. Didn't look at the camera enough during the cooking part of the pilot. Her pilot was probably the most entertaining of the three, and is probably the front runner.
I'm not sure we have any enjoyable shows that have been pitched, but America will pick a winner anyways. The winner's show probably will not be the same name or concept as the pilot they shot anyways.
I will have a poll up soon to see who everyone is voting for(or rooting for) to win and become the next Food Network Star. The Poll is now up - Link.
