After putting their personal spin on the potato, the contestants on last night's episode of The Next Food Network Star created a branded product to dish out to food buyers. When surprise guest Martha Stewart did some sampling of her own, a few of the cooks were utterly overcome. Seriously, Lisa couldn't stop weeping.
Jeffrey's seasoned salt failed to impress the judges, and he went home. But it was Kelsey, the self-proclaimed "mini Martha Stewart," who dominated this episode with her undercooked pancetta potatoes and ultra-perky delivery. The judges thought she looked and sounded too forced and rehearsed, and I agree. Do you think she can tone it down enough to succeed?
