Adam Gets a Job (And Has Strange Cosmic Connection to My Previous Post)
Monday, August 04, 2008 | posted by Mike
Thought you were done with The Next Food Network Star's Adam? Think again! According to a Food Network press release:
Adam Gertler shared his humorous take on food throughout the most recent season of The Next Food Network Star. Now, he pairs his comedic timing with an adventurous spirit in the new Food Network series, Will Work for Food. Currently in production, the series will premiere on Tuesday, September 30th at 9:30pm ET/PT. The half-hour primetime series exposes Adam to the world of little-known food jobs, as he puts his life – and mouth – on the line to try them all!Adam's background as an actor meant that he was pretty good on camera, so it's nice to know he's got a spot doing something for the Network. And, hey...Guy Fieri is better known now for his non-cooking program DD&D, so Adam could be the winner in the long run.
“On The Next Food Network Star Adam exhibited a unique combination of quick wit, passion for food and an engaging personality,” said Bob Tuschman, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production for Food Network. “He earned millions of fans across the country who have let us know that we have a second star in our midst. We feel this series is a perfect fit for his talents, letting him showcase his brand of humor while he works for food.”
Will Work for Food follows Adam on a fearless journey to learn about a wide variety of unique food jobs. Throughout the series, Adam will introduce viewers to the people who do this work the best, as he learns the tricks of the trade and tries everything firsthand. Whether he’s protecting his fingers while feeding sharks, closely examining potato chips for flaws or trying his hand as a dog food taste tester, Adam will stop at nothing to learn how each job is done.
Speaking of which, Aaron's new show debuted this week. Although I thought it was fairly well put-together, the chicken finger salad recipe was a weak effort for the first episode. Doritos!?!? Ugh. He was pretty good on camera, though, and the kid was cute.
So, we know that Adam's back in it. The funny thing is that, if you check out the recap of the Philadelphia Inquirer story about this over at Foobooz (one of my favorite sites for all things Philly food and, well, booze), you'll see that they mention where Adam has been waiting tables since his place closed down. That restaurant would be...........Amada.
