I haven’t said anything about the latest two episodes of The Next Food Network Star, and I apologize for that. This morning I got online, fully intending to say something before this weekend’s finale, when I saw something quite surprising on the Food Network Addict’s (FNA) website:
The Food Network accidentally posted the finalists’ exit interviews and the winner’s video on their website.
It has since been pulled but… Whoops. What a shame that the struggling network continues to bungle things up. Last week’s Food Network Star episode garnered more ratings than Bravo’s darling “Project Runway” – and they botch the momentum with this. What a shame.
Here is the statement the Food Network released to FNA:
“FoodNetwork.com experienced technical difficulties last night. As our viewers have seen on The Next Food Network Star this season, many twists and turns have taken place during the show. We encourage all to tune in on Sunday at 10pm to see who will be the Next Food Network Star.”
They’re trying to salvage the wreckage, but the damage has been done.
For those of you who watch the show and don’t want the ending spoiled, have no fear – FNA has deleted all of the comments that would give the ending away, so you can go check out the info without fear.
