Unfortunately, my January 2009 Bobby Flay Grill It audition video did not make the final 13 chosen for the 2009 season. I prepared two knockout dishes: Grilled Lobster and Seafood Paella with Chorizo and Saffron, and Seared Ahi Tuna with Maui Onion Dressing.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me by voting, commenting on my video, and sending it to all your friends. Maybe better luck next year!
Here is the Dear John email I received:
Thanks everyone for applying to be on Season 2 of Grill It! with Bobby Flay! Because of all the fantastic video submissions, narrowing it down to 13 final Grill Guests was extremely difficult. Thanks for all the memorable moments, laughs, unique recipes, skilled editing techniques and pet cameos! Joking aside, many of you seem to be talented cooks! We do appreciate all of your enthusiasm for the Food Network and Bobby Flay and hope that you’re able to tune in to watch our upcoming season this May.
If you’re interested in hearing about upcoming Food Network casting opportunities please look for Embassy Row (our production company) on Facebook using the email firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep on cooking!
