America’s Next Great Restaurant contestant Alex Terranova was confident right off the bat that he was going to be in the finale, so needless to say it was no surprise that Alex was actually shocked that he was eliminated so early in the competition. In a post elimination interview with NBC, Alex said “Being eliminated so early kinda blew my mind. Even though my concept isn’t really fast casual, as it’s much more of a bar and restaurant, it’s still a 100, maybe even 1000 times better than 98% of the other concepts in the room. Some of my competitors’ ideas have either been done, or are just flat-out bad ideas. Some of them didn’t even have a grasp on what their idea actually was. So not making it into at least the top was pretty shocking.”
Alex Terranova goes on to share that he found his calling apparently as he stated “Even through it was short-lived, it was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life. I loved every moment of the experience. Meeting Greg, Suds and Krystal was pretty awesome as well. We will be friends for years to come. Prior to the experience, I thought I wanted to be on and or host food and restaurant shows. Through this experience, I learned that’s exactly what I was meant to do. I love the experience of talking about food on camera, being on camera and cooking on camera. It just all felt so natural to me.” Lookout, maybe we will see Alex sometime soon on Food Network!
