The Bachelorette chooses a mate and Zac Efron leaves high school.
The competition is heating up on both “Design Star” and “The Next Food Network Star” and I’m kinda surprised by who is still in the running. The contestants on “Design Star” had to design the Sara Evans suite for the Opryland Hotel. The group I like the least did the best job while the other group had troubles finding a couch that would fit through the door. In the end it was Stephanie, who hails from my neck of the woods, that was sent packing.
Oh, and what are the chances that all of these contestants actually knew who Sara Evans was when her name was announced? I think ‘portions of the preceding program have been edited.’
On “The Next Food Network Star” the gang made an appearance on Rachael Ray’s show and man, some were hard to watch. Some how Lisa squeaked by again even though she went completely mute halfway through her segment and it was Shane that was sent home.
Now let’s look at what’s on tonight.
