April 12, 2011 01:00 PM by Lisa Princ

NBC‘s America’s Next Great Restaurant we watched as the contestants had to design a food truck and Sandra DiGiovanni took the judges’ advice and fired her chef, only to be replaced with a culinary nutcase. In the end, Sandra thinks it was that decision that sealed her fate and elimination. Keep reading for more on what Sandra DiGiovanni had to share!

America’s Next Great Restaurant fans watched as Sandra DiGiovanni, who had one of the more interesting concepts was sent packing after what she thinks was a bad decision. In her elimination interview with NBC, Sandra said “The most surprising was when the investors suggested I fire my original chef and hire another one. This was a big mistake on my part. I should have listened to my gut and heart and stuck with Rachel.” But given the situation we all know that Sandra would have faced the judges scolding had she not fired Rachel as they advised her to.

So where did Sandra get her heaven and hell concept? Sandra said “Being a chronic dieter, I was tired of going out to eat with friends and being alone on salad island. So I wanted to create an environment where there are choices and lots of them. Where we can all sit down and enjoy a meal whether you’re health conscious or not. Then I had to go back and tweak it to fit in the mode of fast casual. Not an easy assignment to do.” I still think this was one of the better concepts on the show and I sure hope we see Sandra succeed with this someday!
