Matt, how are you?!?!
Yeah, I wish everyone best of luck, but I wont watch it. I dont watch reality-TV of any type. I particularly hate those that take great cooks/chefs of XXXX variety and make them cook YYYY. I mean, what's the point? I dont watch Survivor, nor any of those House things, nor Bachelor, nor Iron Chef, etc. I wont watch this. I'll probably read about it here on brethren and wonder why on earth someone won because they cooked a great ... I dont know, probably this year will be posdillo (1/2 possum, 1/2 armadillo).
Season 1; loved it; taped it; watched it quite a bit. Season 2, taped it, watched about 1/2 of the first two episodes, got nausea, removed them. I understand why they went to the new format; I'm just not one of their target market is all. I'm probably just too old for that stuff...
Oh, I dont watch (as said above) cupcake wars either. Didnt even know that had such a thing.
I will be watching the Superbowl this weekend, and I'll be cooking chili.
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
