Ham on the Convention Floor

The Food Network has been here all week, but today the talent arrived.

imageI 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.)

  1. I just *love* Food Network, but I stopped watching and havent’ seen a single “Ham on the Street” episode…I think I’ll have to check it out.

    I just LOVE Jim O’Connor..he’s too cool! Be sure to hand your card to him if you get the chance!

    (I’ve acutally met Ms (or now, Mrs.) Ray. She’s just as perky and cute in realy life!)

  2. Hey!  You could have at least told me to turn around in that photo!  We’re having just as much fun covering the show as you are.

  3. Those are the right guys to cover candy, definitely.  NOT Rachael Ray!  Can’t stand her.  Her voice grates on my nerves.  I love Food Network, but when she comes on, the channel is changed.
