We’re not going to lie to you. We watch quite a bit of television. While we’re watching, there are certain questions we ponder, over and over: Why do all the best shows have four primary characters? Why are so many “poor” characters dressed in Marc Jacobs? Most importantly, why are there so few characters from Boston on both scripted and reality shows? Obviously, there’s Boston Rob from Survivor and the entire David E. Kelley ouevre (speaking of which: hey Emmy Awards: James Spader over James Gandolfini, really? REALLY?), but generally speaking, when we turn on the television, our Bostonian options are limited to the ATF agent with the worst accent we’ve ever heard on Big Love, American Idol auditions, and showings of The Departed and Good Will Hunting.
Basically, we think that Bostonians need to be representing a lot harder on the small screen, which is why we firmly believe that you should audition for The Next Food Network Star. Sure, last season featured Methuen’s own Tommy Grella, but we can get closer to Boston proper, right? So get organized, telegenic foodies! If you can’t make it to one of the remaining open calls in Vegas (9/25) or Minneapolis (10/9), create an audition video or send in an application. Represent!
