    I agree completely. I might watch Melissa's show if it's on, but I would TIVO Jeffrey's show -- much more interesting to me.

    I can't understand why anyone would compare Melissa to Sandra Lee?
    Sandra Lee opens boxes of processed foods and buys clothes to match her tablescapes which always match her kitchen and her daily cocktails.
    Melissa, on the other hand, cooked dishes with a french flair, made terrific pastry and gives great kitchen tips. Melissa's cooking is the antithesis of Sandra Lee.

    I do not understand why Sandra Lee even has a show. Who changes their kitchen decor, dishes, and pots & pans to match to match whatever meal they are cooking? So idiotic.
    I would love to know what the budget is for that show, seems like a complete waste of money to me.

    I guess I'm in the minority. Yeah, Melissa is perky, but I like her personality. Jeffery seems a bit milquetoast. Maybe you all cooked this chicken first or better, but her 4 steps makes it memorable and results in a FNshow. Brava Melissa!.

    I agree. I liked both Melissa and Jeffrey, but I was hoping for a Melissa victory. In terms of TV hosting personality, I think Melissa has Jeffrey beat by a mile.

    I've been seeing commercials galore for her new show. It's called Ten Dollar Dinners.

    I'm not sure why she has a show, either. But, I do know that a lot of people like her and FN needs to appeal to everybody.

    I've been cooking for many years and I thought she did a great job of instructing everyone on this dish and sharing her cooking tips. She made it all seem very easy and I give her a lot of credit for that.

    We could tell she was going to win because her profile at the beginning was a lot more detailed than Jeffry's. I do not like the "$10 Dinner" title, however. Is that supposed to be cheap? It is way more than I usually spend to cook a meal, so it is a turnoff.

    Didn't a contestant on another season have a similar theme? Parties on a budget or something like that?

    I don't think it is hard to do a dinner for $10, but then there are only three people in my family.
