mudbug, I feel that I must defend myself! I didn't consider anything I said to be "bashing". I specifically prefaced my comment (kuan asked for comments) regarding Katie Lee Joel by saying "not to be unkind", but I honestly think she is not right for that role. I have read her bio and I wasn't really impressed with her background, which, admittedly, is much more than I can say for myself--but I'm not hosting a culinary competition. (I'll concede, the Heidi Klum comment was a bit snarky.)
And certainly, I realize what the ultimate goal of a television program is. Obviously, I find it entertaining if I've watched it for 3 weeks and am willing to watch more, and have specifically sought out other food enthusiasts to discuss it! Should I not have said that the challenges were lame (an opinion that was voiced by others)?
I sincerely apologize if I crossed any lines, but I am truly surprised by this reaction. :confused: :(
Health, schmealth. Give me the beef!
