Well, the cat's out of the bag (the caramel's out of the bonbon??)... I'm on the next season of Food Network Star! Read more about the show and the other finalists here.
Competing on this show was definitely one of the hardest things I've ever done. You can't study for it. You can't think your way out of it. You can't plan for it. Besides the cooking part (which is very important), it's the ultimate test of self-knowledge. Who are you? What makes you unique? Are you comfortable enough with yourself to show the judges...the camera... the world???
And for those reasons, it was was one of the best, most transformative, live-changing experiences. I met some amazing people -- including the people standing next to me above -- and am so grateful for every crazy moment. I can't wait for you to watch.
I'll be posting more ahead of the launch and as it airs. But here's the important info.
FOOD NETWORK STAR
Premieres June 10, 9pm ET/PT on Food Network
Plus, follow me on Twitter as I live-tweet during every episode. And feel free to ask me questions here or on social media. As of now, I'm no longer hermetic novelist, I'm a public Food Network Star finalist :D.
