I've never watched this show before but I'm planning to this season.
Has there ever been a good winner from this? I only know about Guy and Big Daddy, and I can't stand either of them.

The first episode is always the hardest elimination. Though we (judges) don't have any attachments yet to any finalists, we also are just getting to
know them. So figuring out who should stay and who should go is always a combination of intuition, a few pieces of evidence, and a lot of what you think
their potential might be. Basically, you're filling in a lot of blanks on your own.
But sometimes when I watch the final cut of the show as a viewer - out of the heat of battle, and fully edited with all the interviews and
behind-the-scenes footage put in - I get a different point of view. In this episode, I'm not sure we sent the right person home.
The Food Network stars agreed that Jen had one of the worst dishes of the day. In
both conception and execution, her green bean dish was below par. So I immediately questioned if she had the culinary expertise and technique to pull off her
"Housewife 2.0″ conceit. But watching her interviews, I found her funny, bright and tart. Humor is a trump card - anyone who can make an audience laugh
instantly hooks them. Jen is funny.
Eddie was the other candidate at the bottom of the pack. His BLAST bowl - inferior ingredients not elevated at all by cooking technique - was one of the
other worst received dishes. When I was going through the buffet line I asked him about his culinary POV and got a torrent of words that made no sense. I
asked him to say it in one line and he couldn't. His presentation was earnest, no hint of humor or passion.
If I had it to do again, I probably would have voted to send Eddie home. But I'm hoping that it was just nerves that strangled Eddie into dullness.
Otherwise, he's got a killer combo of intelligence, looks, food passion and rebel personality that could pay off. With Jen on the other hand, I felt like
she had already laid all her cards on the table. I liked her. I think both she and Eddie can probably cook better than either did on this one day. But I
thought her point of view and culinary command would limit her greatly. Eddie just seemed to have many more possibilities.

Haven't picked anybody yet. Nobody really stood out for me. Debbie was a lying sack of tater tots. She is the one that picked that store made angel
food cake. Team decision my ass. Knew that her personality was going to "save" her. I'm surprised the other team didn't get reamed for
having $200 left over from their shopping trip. One would have thought that money could/should have gone into making one or more of the dishes more tasty.

There's something very "Ina" about Debbie to me. Not just the fatness, but the speech. Plus, I thought it ironc, that of all people, Anne
Burrell (platinum blonde, spiky hair) would criticize a contestant as possibly making viewers "twitchy." Has she ever watched her own show?
