Well, the 12 contestants were finally whittled down to 3 finalists: Aarti Sequeira, Herb Mesa, and Tom Pizzica. I was pretty glad to see some people get axed (Alexis, Brianna, and Dzintra), but was also very happy with the three finalists. They each had their own charm and interesting culinary point of views (points of view?).
I would watch any of them and was particularly interested in learn some Indian cuisine from Aarti and Cuban cuisine from Herb. Ultimately, the winner was Aarti! I look forward to seeing her show when it airs. I’m sure the Herb and Tom will also show up somewhere on the Food Network. Congratulations to Aarti. Anybody trying out for Season 7?
