Food Network Star, Week 2 (SPOILER)

This was an episode that made one wonder how at least a couple of contestants ever got chosen. Like the woman who bitched about having to deal with fried chicken ("I don't fry chicken") and waffles ("I don't like waffles. I like pancakes."), and not being as enthusiastic as others about meeting and picking the brains of some very iconic New York cooks/proprietors.

And some, like self-proclaimed Mr. Rock n; Roll, seem to be all about themselves and not about the food. We'll see if they fall by the wayside fairly quickly.

Eric Lee is my hometown boy (Sonoma County), and I met him a few years ago. He's as nice in person as he comes off on TV. But I fear his cooking expertise may not carry him through the Big Personality Test. Wonder if he got any tips in advance from our other hometown boy, Guy Fieri...
