I stand behind balls. I stand behind all things spherical. I stand behind Team Balls on the Roll’s epic commercial. Listen, I am fully aware of the tongue-in-cheek nature of such a concept. We had very little time to construct a concept, menu and commercial, and quite frankly all three of those elements were well executed. Our food across the board very well executed, plated beautifully and delicious. I loved our commericial. It was quick, stupid and fun. We even ended with a catchy jingle.
The thing I am proud of most thus far is my “all in” attitude. The selection committee asked for it two weeks ago and that’s what they’re getting. 100% Jeff, 100% of the time was my mantra. I did not send a toned-down representative of myself to Food Network Star. This has gotten me in trouble a couple times (balls, fiber-induced poops, knife throws, stage-jumps, tofu), but at least I’m being my true self. Ask anyone who knows me. That I am proud of. And of of course, my fantastic meatballs.
