I agree! I haven't watched FN on Sunday mornings since Melissa and Brian went off. Now that I think about it, I don't watch much of FN anymore. I do love The Next Iron Chef and wish there was a blog about it. Today, just about everything I checked was a rerun. And I'm still frustrated with these boards being all messed up.

Yea, I tried to post there when it first went up. Something is wrong with Bob's Blog. Nothing ever posts. It all started when FN switched to Intense Debates to moderate.

It made it. The "prize" for NFNS was a six show contract. All six shows aired. Her show was renewed and will be back in January 2010 according to the show webpage.

Sheryl,

Melissa's "prize" for the Next Food network Star was a six show contract. Then FN has the choice to renew or not. They have renewed the show. If you go to her show page, there is the announcement that she will be back January 2010. Not sure about Brian, but hope he's back too.

You're right laura,

I don't know what is going on, but FN needs to get it together regarding the website. I posted something yesterday in another forum and instead of my post being the "latest activity", it was sandwiched between pages 1 and 3.

I'm enjoying his show. He never said he was a chef as you state. But he is a cook. I'd much rather watch him than perky, perky Rachael. At least Brian gives out correct information which I can't say for RR. I find him entertaining and his recipes look delicious.

I agree with you TXEater.

Forgot, not all the personalities on the FN are trained chefs. RR isn't and neither is Paula or Ina. And I seem to have read somewhere that even Mario B. didn't finish culinary school! I do not know this, but perhaps FN is feeling the crunch of the recession like the rest of us. I'm sure it is less expensive to get someone like Brian who is not a trained chef than someone like Emeril.

HI Sandra,
I really don't consider him an "expert" in the way I would consider Bobby Flay or Emeril an expert. I do enjoy watching him and think he has some good recipes. I find myself laughing when I watch him because of his great personality. For all the talk from TPTB at FN claiming they want their "talent" to be food experts, they have proven with RR that they don't require being an expert from everyone on the team. Just my opinion.

Gosh, that was mean! Are you always this mean to people that do not agree with you? Glad you're not my granny.
