Alton Brown »
Forget Melissa D’Arabian. The real story during last night’s Next Food Network Star finale was the new Iron Chef commercial that featured an almost unrecognizable Alton Brown looking SUPER THIN (we’re talking “just returned home from taping a season of Survivor” thin).
Sadly for the Food Network, hardly anyone cared about Melissa winning the show… but hundreds of FNH readers sent us comments about Alton’s new svelte appearance. If that doesn’t speak volumes about the new winner and the state of the network, we don’t know what does.
FNH reader Karen Morley just talked to Alton at Food Network’s Southern Food & Wine Fest, and said he lost “45 pounds in 5 months eating sardines.” She also sent us these photos of “The New Alton Brown” that she took over the weekend:
The new season of “The Next Iron Chef” starts Oct. 4.
