Get excited: Food Network's number one series, Food Network Star, premieres its seventh season tonight at 9 p.m. As we once again count down to more hopefuls competing for their own show (get acquainted with the new cast!), we take a look back at winners and finalists from seasons past and come to a conclusion: what happens on the Food Network stays in the Food Network. To see what we're talking about, keep reading.
The Food Network has announced that the Next Food Network Star runner-up, Adam Gertler, will have his own series. The show will feature Adam demonstrating how food-industry insiders perform their jobs. Entitled "Will Work For Food," the series is scheduled to debut on Sept. 30 at 9:30 p.m. Bob Tushman, a judge on NFNS and senior vice president of Programing and Production for the Food Network explained why Gertler gets his own show:
On the Next Food Network Star Adam exhibited a unique combination of quick wit, passion for food, and an engaging personality. He earned millions of fans across the country who have let us know that we have a second star in our midst. We feel this series is a perfect fit for his talents, letting him showcase his brand of humor while he works for food.
I preferred Adam to the winner Aaron McCargo Jr. and am excited Adam was rewarded a show. How about you? Will you watch Adam on the Food Network?
