Was wondering wheather anyone has had messages from a food network associate, asking if you would be interested in auditioning for a "national television show"? I got a message today and was wondering if this is a scam or prank?

I would inquire with FN about this. It sounds like a scam to me.

I would agree with playingwithsugar call FN and find out if its a scam or not if it is I am sure they would want to know about it but if its not that is awesome.

I havent had any dealing with food network prior to this, but it seemed legit when she emailed.

I got the email too. I almost deleted it as spam, but decided to check it out.

So far, I've spoken with the Associate Producer (which is probably code for "gofer" icon_smile.gif ). She wants me to send her a video of me talking about myself in a "creative" way. I'm thinking of dressing up in a suit of armor. icon_wink.gif

I was contacted by the Food Network too. Yes, it is legit. I have been talking with one of their Assistant Producers. There are several of them and the one assigned to me is also the one who was assigned to a friend of mine who has been on Challenge 3 times. What surprised me is that making an audition video is harder than you would think.
