that sucks based on the news clip on sunday i got the feeling that they were hoping for a female finalist and judging on those that they chose it pretty much confirms that


oh well at least you got some exposure from this contest

It's too bad you didn't get the top vote, Ronin Definitely came close though.

Hey, thanks guys...I appreciate your support. Seriously, it means a lot to me.

Not the result I wanted but hey, it is what it is. Honestly, I was way more disappointed when we lost game 7 (both times). At least they didn't jerk me around for another month like the two that aren't going to win. I can sleep easy again and not put any more time into this because...well, it's been tiring.

But again, thank you everyone. It's been fun.

Remember to unlike the page, BTW, if you guys didn't want to like it in the first place. I know some of you guys only did it to help me out. I don't want you guys getting spammed with further contest updates...y'know, unless you want to and in that case, continue to like away!

Wow ed you got totally fucked. Linds Eats is a cunt.

They already have their winner chosen anyway, they want a female writer obviously. They haven't interviewed anyone right? I thought they would at least conduct interviews of the top 12.

The only one with a decent blog other than edeats.com was Melanie Hillier's site. The other two finalists are a fucking TUMBLR SITE and a fucking BLOGSPOT site with no traffic



My advice is take this exposure and make edeats.com a bigger site than any of them.

It's going to be so wierd having a white chick from Ottawa blogging about Richmond food

Ah so they just wanted a white female for some reason. I wonder if they thought you would spend too much time talking about asian food

If you don't want to talk Asian food, you're clearly in the wrong town.

I am surprised. I browsed through the Linds site the other day and the content is lousy, especially as of late. I hope whoever wins doesn't spend their time writing about blueberry farms and restaurants in Steveston.

As Skinny has mentioned, hopefully this exposure will spring you onto other, bigger and better opportunities.

That's why it's so

They got to pick two people out of twelve. One of them is obviously not going to win, and shows that the voting system is stupid. But two out of twelve and they didn't pick the one person who has shown themselves to be very active in local social media and food blogging? Instead, they went with someone with a crappy tumblr account and a chick from ontario?

Something doesn't add up...

Fuck blueberry farms. ...but not blueberries, they're fucking delicious.

Just to give you an idea of the stuff I was thinking of...if I won, I was going to invite the other 11 finalists out to eat. Beforehand, we'd go go karting with a couple of GoPros mounted to them so we can see who the winner would've been if the competition was decided by go kart driving skill. Then head to a Chinese seafood restaurant for a multi-course meal. All filmed on my new 5D Mk III. If they weren't going to pay for a 12 person dinner, then I would've paid it out of the $50k. Only seems right that you say good game to everyone else.

Every week would be a 7 restaurant reviews, a "What's happening in Richmond this week" news post on Sundays, a random photo blog post...shit like just what happens in Richmond on a daily basis on another day and a weekly video of that week's restaurants and food related happenings.

I thought that would've been fun as hell.

I'm well aware it's called "fuh".

But when I do, I have to explain to the thousands of people that call it "pho" what the fuck I'm saying. So I choose to just not bother with something that's rather insignificant. Who the hell cares what it's called?

Besides, if you call it "fuh" then that fucking RUINS so many of the hilarious joke signs at a lot of modern pho restaurants. Like PHO SHO...FUH SHO just isn't as funny.

He's speaking English, not Vietnamese. In English, you pronounce it "Foe"

Just don't be like my and Ed's friend who calls it "fur" for some stupid reason, even though we constantly tell him it's wrong.

The vote itself is a sham. Being the winner means nothing, except they get "included" in the top 3 consideration. Obviously they had their own top 2 choices... So whether Linds Eats Cunt wins, or Ed wins, they are going to pick one of the top 2 anyway. Unless Linds Eats Cunt was one of their top 3 already, and they pick her, in which case the whole city is a sham anyway.

In any case, whether Ed won the vote or not, they were going to pick one of those boring white girls from ontario regardless.

What a joke. I'm actually writing a letter to the city of richmond. Why ignore someone who already knows the city. Why does it have to be female? Are they trying to be so politically correct that they have to hire some white girl to show that they wouldn't favour asians in a city thats MAJORITY ASIAN RESTERAUNTS. I knew it was going to be some gwai lo.

Fuck I know they are going to do a bad job, because I'm the only fucking white guy thats eat at these places in Richmond. They literally call me "THE GWAI-LO".

It also looks like who ever is running the twitter account is already on the defense.

I'm mind blown that you didn't even make the top 3. Why are they all white females too?! I loved ededition when I first saw it a few years back and was a consistent follower for awhile. Just visited your blogs and damn, I don't know why I stopped.

You have my support for future contests and keep what you're doing. This contest was obviously premeditated and rigged.
