If you follow me on social media, you know I tried out for Food Network Star. I made it to the 2nd round of callbacks and waiting anxiously for 2 months to see if I would get the call…well I didn’t! Haha!
This was right before the 2nd interview…
And then this was after:
I just realized how patriotic my outfit was! If you don’t follow me instagram, you should, I don’t always post everything on the blog.
I won’t be on this season’s show but I will be recapping every episode once a week for you!
Food Network released the pictures of the contestants and bios. I am sad no one I met at the Denver auditions made it because I met some seriously talented people. The first interview I nailed it and wasn’t surprised I was asked for a callback, the second not so much. I wish I could see the video of it because we could all have a good laugh. I nailed their questions but then I had to demo one of my dishes and I stumbled through it pretty bad. I was kicking myself for not asking for another chance but I honestly believe everything happens for a reason.
Here are the finalists! You can read more about them here.
See the week the contestants left to film my mom, who would have been in charge of my 4 kids got seriously sick. She had to have emergency surgery to save her life and if she would have been at my house taking care of my kids, my dad wouldn’t have been able to force her to go to the ER. So I might not have been even seriously considered but I am glad I didn’t make it..maybe next time.
So who am I excited to watch? I always feel like here isn’t enough young blood on the Food Network…I mean I am no spring chicken but I like to see younger people so I can’t wait to watch Matthew because he is only 22 and Jay because he is from my home state of Louisiana.
I haven’t seen any videos so I am not sure who else I think but I will keep you posted! Set your DVR for Sunday, June 7 at 9|8c to watch the season premiere!
