It was only months ago, when the queen of daytime launched the Oprah Winfrey Network and hooked up with powerhouse producer Mark Burnett, to find the next hippest host for the new reality show “Your Own Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star”.
Over 15,000 people auditioned and it came down to Miss Winfrey hand-picking two winners. It just so happens that one of the newest vivacious host to be hitting the airwaves has a hint of New England in her. Also Texan Zach Anner was the other lucky stallion that has received a contract, cash prize and a Chevy Equinox SUV. Sweet.
Graduate of Hamilton-Wenham High, Kristina Kuzmic-Crocco rocked it with her energetic and personable vibe to land her OWN show “Kristina’s Fearless Kitchen”.
She is contracted for six episodes but we are pretty sure she will pull you in. Each episode sparks by teaching guests that cooking is not a chore and that it can be a creative process.
Kristina resides on the west coast with her husband and two children. She moved from Croatia to Hamilton, MA at age 14 with a thick accent and poor English. She enrolled in theater right away and the camera clearly took a liking to her fancy face and desirable curls.
“If it weren’t for my theater background, my cooking show would be very different,” she said. “It taught me to be my goofy self in front of the camera.”
Don’t be surprised to know that Kristina is a natural. She has never been to culinary school and learned to cook from her grandmother.
Exact launch of “Kristina’s Fearless Kitchen” is still pending and we will be tuned in. Check out the pilot on the O Network. Oh and check out Kristina’s blog stickycook dot com at the moment its currently unavailable but will be cooking soon. So check her out on FB.
