Adam Gertler gets his own show on the Food Network!

I just saw that the Food Network is giving Adam Gertler(one of the three finalist form The Next Food Network Star) his own show. Below is an article from the Philadelphia Inquirer.

It's not a cooking show, per se. Gertler will show how people in the food business do their jobs. Among them: potato chip inspector, shark feeder and dog-food taste-tester. Gertler, an actor and former waiter at Amada in Old City, co owned The Smoked Joint, a short-lived barbecue restaurant at the Academy House in Center City.According to the article, Will Work For Food premieres Sep. 30 at 9:30pm on Food Network.

Here is a quote from Bob Tuschman, who you might remember as one of the three members of the TNFNS selection committee; confirming the story.

"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.”

Now I don't know about you but I am happy for Adam. He was the other finalist that I hoped had won. However I think that they should have waited awhile to announce this. I mean come on your real winner Aaron McCargo Jr. has only had one episode air. They could have not tried to steal his spotlight at least for a few more weeks.

What is your opinion? Do you feel Adam deserves a show at this point in time or at all? I think he should have one just not now give Aaron a chance to bask in his victory.
