"I'm Putting the Competition On Ice"

Screencap of Johnny from one of the new 
now running on HGTV and Food Network. 
So excited for the hour-long season premiere 
and PST / 8 pm  CST on Food Network!!

Good luck, Johnny!! So excited for you
and for your Japanese fans!
(BTW there's a rumor that Stars on Ice 
will be broadcast on TV-Tokyo on Sunday, Jan. 13, 
at about 7:50 pm Tokyo time / 5:50 am EST. 
BRB checking for livestreams...!)

So Johnny's in Osaka getting ready for the Stars on Ice: Japan Tour 2013 shows that are happening this weekend, at which apparently he is debuting a new classical program for his Japanese fans which I mention without even a modicum of envy, so absorbed am I in reviewing what's required to move to Japan on extremely short notice that I can barely look up to observe new Celebrity Cook-Off promos until I just happened to catch this one where JOHNNY AND DEAN MCDERMOTT KISS FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME:

(With apologies to Victor....)
If the video won't load for you, please try this link.

But wait, there's more!

Seriously cannot wait to see this now, even though it's yet another show that falls into our Stuff That I Would Never Ever Watch Except That Johnny's On It So Now It's My New Favorite Show Yay! category.

In addition, I've been waiting all week to say this: The Food Network blog has been running one new Rachael vs. Guy bio per day this week, including a Q&A with each contestant, to lead up to the show. Yesterday they posted #7 of 8: Gilbert Gottfried's bio. Which means they're running Johnny last today, which means they think he's the top interest-getter to lead in to the show premiere on Sunday... :D So watch this link for Johnny's bio and Q&A to be added sometime today!

And whilst we wait impatiently for the premiere THIS SUNDAY, 9 pm EST and PST / 8 pm CST, please continue to vote for Johnny in the Celebrity Cook-Off Fan Favorite Voting because OMG HIS MASSIVE LEAD has slipped from 66% to 58%.... D:

Yay fan voting!! Please go here 
and answer the question, "Who Has What It Takes 
to Be the Next Celebrity Cook-Off Champion?" 
with your vote for Johnny—you can vote up to 
10 times per day! Which clearly we have been.... 
Although the other fanbases have now begun to clock in, 
so HoneyBadgeWeirs need to keep voting!!

Oooo, and one more that's just Johnny! 
Which is just the way I like my promos.

Yes, of course. Because....

Friday Flashback:

Looking forward to Rachael vs. Guy and Johnny's spontaneity.

Love how Johnny's Japanese fans take so many pictures. But expect a video lockdown.

Johnny and Victor should watch the movie Tampopo together, by the way. Extremely funny and about food.

OMG Your blog is the best!!! How would I cope without it?? Thank you for keeping us fans up to date!:)

(But I would also like to point out that the LiveJournal -identity sign in -thing doesn't work.)

Binky and the Misfit Mimes said...

Thank you, Laura!! :D

Argh. Sorry about the sign-in thing. It tends to be randomly glitchy, but not in a way that I can control, sadly...
