Food Network Day!
I spent an amazing day as a taste tester for the hit Food Network show, The Next Food Network Star! Out of 13 contestants, I had to vote for the burger I liked the best! Hard job, but someone's gotta do it! You might recognize judge Alton Brown to the left! The episode is set to air early this summer!
Here I am on set with Gigi Dubois! My new foodie friend and founder of www.gigieatscelebrities.com! We tried to get into as much trouble as possible without being asked to leave...wink, wink!
