Ham on the Convention Floor
The Food Network has been here all week, but today the talent arrived.
I saw George Duran of Ham on the Street several times out on the show floor shooting and ended up catching a few photos of him as he appeared to be taping either his teaser or intro.
You can’t tell on TV, but in real life he’s a very blurry man. I took 19 photos of him and only one was in focus!
He was wearing a super-cute tee - it was olive colored and simple and had an orange lolly right in the center.
Later on, as the show floor was closing down for the day, I saw him walking out and I walked up to him and gushed and introduced myself.
I gave him a card and whatnot, but really I was just happy to see that he was there covering the show because he’s one of the best personalities from the Food Network to get the assignment. He’s totally down-to-earth and I feel like he’ll really get into it. So keep your eye on the Food Network schedule!
I felt just like I was in Los Angeles, being stopped in my tracks and waiting while a crew shoots something!
The other crew from the Food Network was working their B-Roll footage for The Secret Life Of .... with Jim O’Connor who is also a natural fit. He’s supposed to be there taping his segments tomorrow. Of course I would love, love, love to be on the show but I’m not sure that I’ve got what it takes to compete with the candy on the show floor.
(What was really funny was that everyone kept asking where Rachael Ray was.)
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
