    Wait...we don't get to vote on the winner anymore? That IS a crock...

    I can see why the judges had a hard time choosing someone to eliminate tonight. They all have possibilities and while Adam has the least ability to fall into a marketable nitch they couldn't very well eliminate him when he won this challenge. Even though this is the ONLY challenge he has done well in.

    I disagree, I think he's done really well on the past few challenges. I don't know why Bobby is so hard on Adam...maybe he's threatened because he doesn't want more BBQ competition?!

    I think we vote for too many of the wrong reasons.

    Here is the wording from the web site about Sunday's episode:


    Finale
    The final contenders face off at Food Network, performing pilot presentations of their dream shows. All the Finalists return and join a live audience to find out who will be The Next Food Network Star.

    The Neeleys annoy the heck out of me too. Every time I watch their show I keep wishing they would just go get a room. I wanted to like their show, because their family does make the best BBQ on the planet.

    I like Aaron the best out of the final three contestants, but I don't quite get what his cooking style is. it seems a bit all over the place. btw, southern cooking and soul food are not really the same. And i am not sure that Aaron cooks either of those. He confuses me.

    Paula Deen smokes too, but she wishes she didn't, and is embarrassed about it.

    I am with you. I don't get it either.

    The only person who actually has a personality for tv is Lisa. I am not terribly fond of her at all but she is the only truly qualified contestant left. Aaron shouldn't have even made it this far.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Of the three left, the only one I would watch is Aaron. His promo was the best of the group.

    Lisa has no business being in the final three, I mean, she was in the bottom two the first week and should have been gone then.

    I am surprised that there are 3 in the finals. Are the viewers not able to vote this year? Is it just going to be determined by the judges?
