Maine for TV

News Center Maine reports that Red’s Eats’ chef Shannon Brown will be competing in an upcoming episode of the Food TV Network show Alex vs America.

Brown is preparing herself mentally and emotionally, as the day of the competition draws near. She said she knows that this is not just about winning a cooking challenge. It’s about showcasing the flavors of Maine and making her home state proud, one lobster dish at a time.

The Press Herald reports that Nina Interlandi Bell from Woolwich will be competing on the Fox TV show MasterChef.

Bell has already passed her televised audition for the show and will be reintroduced as one of the season’s final 20 contestants during the episode Wednesday. That means she’ll be able to compete against the 19 others for a chance to win the show’s $250,000 prize and the “MasterChef” title.
