Feast Your Eyes on This- Round 5 Contestant Videos

Our Sponsor, PeppersandMore.com is more than just a chile blog, they also do wine reviews, host various contests, amongst other things. They have just launched their 2nd Annual Beef Jerky Contest. If you think you have a homemade jerky that is better than the rest, then this contest is for you. Look at their Grand Prize- a Dehydrator with a retail value of $325. You can get info for their contest by clicking on the above contest picture, which will take you right to their page. This is not just a Beef Jerky Contest, it is a Beef and More Jerky Contest. So check out PeppersandMore.com today.

Round 5 videos are in for this tough tough challenge. I asked all the remaining competitors that if they won, what ingredient would they like their fellow competitors to cook with? Well, some were kinder than others. Unfortunately for them, I switched the tables on them, and they got that ingredient to work with. Only Clement got a choice to use any of their choices, including Butch(crawfish) who was eliminated last round. These were their ingredients:
Sam: Crab
Johnny: Squash
Scott: Jicama
Clement: choice

Using their main ingredient they had to make 2 spicy dishes. The first had to be either a soup, salad or appetizer, and the second was to be a main entree. Plus, they had to make a spicy dessert using America’s Pastime snack food- peanuts, popcorn and/or crackerjack. Their video time was also increased to 9 minutes. We are at 4 contestants, but soon we will be at 3. The Round 5 $50 prize from PeppersandMore.com is up for grabs. Only time will tell, as our judges have their work cutout for them.

    Tough tough round for the judges. Someone has to be booted, but it is such a hard job this week to choose one. Awesome job one and all. When am I allowed over for leftovers? :hungry: :lick:

  • April 10, 2011 at 8:45 am


    when it’s all said and done, you may pick and choose creating a full course meal and I’ll have you over for dinner, nice and hot and SPICY!

  • April 10, 2011 at 8:47 am

    You can’t buy me with your awesome Cajun cooking. Will there be sweet potato fries? :_retarded:

  • April 10, 2011 at 8:48 am

    I need a catch phrase when I eliminate someone. Top Chef has, “Pack you knives and go”. Chopped has, “You’ve been Chopped!”, Next Food Network Star has, “You will not be the next Food Network Star.” Well that last one needs some work. I need something like those. What do you think of one of these:
    “Losers don’t belong in the kitchen”
    “Sorry but your food was found lacking”
    “Spicy you are not”
    “Feast Your Eyes on That, Beeotches!”
    “Pack Your Spicy Chives and Go”
    “You’ve Been Lopped!”
    “My Mom doesn’t like your cooking”
    “Not good enough, bye-bye”
    “Don’t let the refrigerator door hit you on the way out of the kitchen”
    “Wow, you suck!”

    Sam, love the robe…cracker jack…cracker jack…cracker jack…

  • April 10, 2011 at 9:25 am

    that’s why I said when it’s all over with…lol I did have sweet potato chips in the last round

  • April 10, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Right on, I was hoping you would think it was funny!

  • April 10, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    I had Hans start off the video so Buddah could learn the words to the song. It’, “buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks”, not “peanuts and popcorn and Cracker Jacks”!

  • April 10, 2011 at 3:24 pm

    Buddah is Jewish he was raised “Buy me some Knish and Gefilte Fish” He could not eat at Ballgames unless food was Kosher.

  • April 10, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Jim I grew up on Bacon and BBQ pig, shrimp, crab and other delicious shellfish. Knishes were sold at Shea Stadium. I am just bad at music.

  • April 10, 2011 at 5:37 pm

    You might be bad at music but you have that cool Tom Jones Hair baby!

  • April 10, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    Sorry, but you have been eliminated. (But I might call you back for future elimination!) lol

  • April 10, 2011 at 11:41 pm

    I take back what I said earlier. That robe was a must see. 😆

  • April 10, 2011 at 11:42 pm

    You all did a wonderful job. Good luck to all of you.

    Good luck to the judges on finding a clear winner. It’s going to be tough.

  • April 11, 2011 at 3:13 am

    Either that or:

    “You no spicy enough! You go now!”

  • April 11, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    SORRY JOHNNY, YOU CAN FEAST YOUR EYES ON THE DOOR…..I was just using Johnny for an example…. 😉

  • April 11, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    The Mariners? Lol

  • April 11, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    When an Oriole fan laughs at you, then you know your team sucks.

  • April 11, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    Oy Vay! :angryturnip:

  • April 11, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    And that’s coming from a Mets fan…

  • April 11, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    How did the Blue Jackets do this year John?

  • April 11, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    They finished higher than the Mets (league standings) and beat the Mets in a pick-up game of baseball…

  • April 11, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    I can’t believe the Duffster said you had no sense of humor. That was funny. 😆

  • April 11, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    .006 better, Kinda like the amount of Scorpion in the El Pinto Mew Mexiscam Salsa… Wait, that was .000625!

  • April 11, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    😯 Oh no u didn’t!

  • April 11, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    hey guys,
    since NOLA is a big sponsor of FYEOT, I’ll ask the question here-
    do they have a spicy food contest that anyone can enter like the other big shows, or is it only for show attendees? I’ve been looking for info, can’t find anything except the list of previous winners.

    Been enjoying all the vids, some really great talents putting up some creative foods.

    Keep it up and good luck to those sill in it.

  • April 11, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    It is a bit confusing on the site, but Tracy made a post on facebook that stated only the exhibitors can compete. This is year 2 for the show, I would try to contact him to get a definitive answer.

  • April 11, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Last year it was only for the exhibitors. This year Idk.

  • April 12, 2011 at 3:32 am

    Padres did better than all your teams including Oriholes. And did better with a smaller payroll. Oh yeah American league Baseball won’t be real baseball until they let their pitchers hit.

  • April 12, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    Not smaller payroll than the CBJ, different sport, fewer players. C’mon Duffy!

  • April 12, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    :toilet: :toilet: El Pinto Mew Mexiscam Salsa:toilet: :toilet:

  • April 13, 2011 at 12:30 am

    Great job on the food vids. awesome recipies. Im gettin schooled.

  • April 13, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Yes the contest is only for the vendors at the show. We may have that expanded in a few years but for now we are only opening it up to vendors. So salsalady you need to come and join the fun.
