Okay, fine, it was Michael Symon instead of John Besh.
Thinking about it, though, that makes a certain amount of sense, as Besh and Bobby Flay strike me as being somewhat similar. They both specialize in a particular style of Southern cuisine (Flay: Southwestern; Besh: Southeastern with a Cajun undertone), are roughly of an age and stage, etc. Symon is also a Caucasian male but that's where the similarity ends, his food tending toward Greek. Plus, as one of the judges pointed out, while Symon's low points were lower than Besh's, his high points (during the competition) were higher.
I'm going to miss John Besh, however. He was a lot of fun to watch. Don said he wouldn't be surprised to see him wind up someday with his own show, and I hope he's right.
Today's the day that Jessica is taking Brianna and one of her friends to San Antonio to see the Hannah Montana concert (apparently it was already sold out up here). Brianna is wildly enthusiastic about Hannah Montana, but I've got to say, having sat through one of those shows (it's on the Disney channel) on Saturday night, I was underwhelmed. Why do actors on shows targeted to kids have to overact so dreadfully?
Still, it's a Big Deal for Brianna, to be able to go to the concert, and in San Antonio to boot! An out of town concert makes it twice as special, getting to stay in a hotel room with Mama and friend. Here's hoping they've a safe trip down and a super time (especially I hope the girls can see....it'd be a real shame were their view to be blocked by the people in front of them standing, for instance).
