For some reason this show is missing the sparkle that made it so much fun to watch in earlier seasons. The set feels SO dark. I wish they would brighten things up a bit. It feels like the judges are going through the motions, and let's be honest and call out the pink elephant in the room. Very few of the winners ACTUALLY become true stars on Food Network, with a few exceptions. That alone makes it hard to become excited about the show or the eventual winner.
