Be a Star!
I don't know if any of you watch The Next Food Network Star. I do. It's sort of like the Apprentice with food. Eight contestants have to complete cooking challenges and each week one is eliminated. I haven't decided yet if I would actually tune in to watch any of them on a regular basis. Of the eight starters, only three have professional cooking experience and one of those guys had to quit his cook job to make more money. I suppose Third can relate to that. For one of their challenges they were told to present their culinary point of view. Or what I would have called their gimmick. So there was the ethnic focus, the regional focus, the fresh & healthy focus. But why not a cooking-for-your-pets focus? That is such a trend these days. Seems to be the first thing you ask a new dog friend is "what do you feed your dog?" Maybe they could have a show featuring meals you and your dog could share. Healthy for poochie, healthy for you. Separate plates, of course. But I digress.
Anyway, I started thinking we should all get our own cable shows. We could easily fill a day's programming with:
- Zen Motorcycle Repair
- the perennially favorite Reluctant Gardener (ha, a joke! perennial+gardener, get it?)
- how about Metal Shop Magic
- Reading to Clancy
- The Computer Guy
...then there's home decorating, and the DIY crew. The Bargain Hunter. Understanding Art. And of course we need a pet show. I see endless possibilities.
Oh, a talk show, too. That would be fun. We could banter, girls. Everyone would tune in to listen to us banter for an hour. Wouldn't they?
