Yes, we have a bit of a Craigslist addiction, it’s true. We love the job listings, love looking at pets for adoption, finding stoop sales, apartments (even though we just moved) and weird free shit. And we love that reality TV loves Craig too. The Food Network is currently looking for contestants for The Next Food Network Star:
Casting- The Next Food Network Star
THE FOOD NETWORK STAR IS BACK FOR A NEW SEASON AND A NEW SEARCH! DO YOU THINK YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A TV STAR OR HOST YOUR OWN SHOW?
This is what we are looking for:
• Cooking know-how: You can be self-taught or professionally trained but you must have strong cooking skills. Cooks, Chefs, Foodies, and all those who are passionate about food are encouraged to apply!
• Personality that pops: Let yourself shine and show us who you really are. Don’t be shy. We are all about personality-show us yours!
• Teaching skills: Bring the world of food and cooking to life in your very own passionate and unique way. Please be clear about your cooking point of view.
From a pool of finalists, one winner will receive their own six-episode show.
Please e-mail us your name, age, phone number, e-mail address, city, a brief summary of why you want to be on the show, occupation (if not cooking professionally how do you continue to keep your passion for cooking alive), and a picture of yourself to: CastingNFNS4@yahoo.com
