How boring was this final show? Tell me I wasn't sleeping. The show was fluff. Filler. Nonsense. I did my nails. Walked the dog. And checked other blogs as I waited to find out who won. In fact, towards the end I felt like a zombie.
First, this series went by so quickly that we hardly bonded with some of the contestants that were cut early. Second, with JAG pulling out of the competition, we had one 'real' contestant competing (Rory, who was chosen by the judges) and one default contestant (Amy, who I think should not have been cut in the first place.) Frankly, regardless of who wins, this victory will be a Pyrrhic one. I am typing these words in real time just to allay the boredom.
So, drum roll please. RHrrrrrrrrr!! The winner is ... Brooke Johnson, president of Food Network, announces ... let's stretch it out more ... Bobby Flay hands the envelope to Chef Emeril ... no surprise, according to my two polls ... AMY.
Oh, and she gets a car in addition to a show, which will premier this fall. Congratulations, dahling, I've been rooting for you for a while.
