Meet the New York Contestants on The Next Food Network Star

By

Two New Yorkbased contestants will vie to become to be The Next Food Network Star when season five premieres this Sunday at 9 p.m., and theyve both answered the same questions for the Food Network Addict blog. Brett August from Washington Heights names Anthony Bourdain as his chef idol and was most excited to meet the winner of last years show, Aaron McCargo Jr. Meanwhile, contestant Michael Proietti likes the FAB Morimoto. I love his fashion sense, and hes an artist in the kitchen, plus Proietti was eager to meet past FN Star loser Susie Fogelson because I always looked forward to seeing what she was going to wear. Wow, thats girlie of me! Were not judging.
