Jyll Everman was almost never seen without a smile during her tenure on this season of Food Network Star. While some called her fake or inauthentic, others defended her resolve and cheery personality. Despite wowing the judges on several occasions, and after narrowly escaping elimination last week, Jyll was sent home on Sunday's episode. While the judges may have found her constant cheerfulness a bit too much, Jyll Everman was pleasant enough with me when I chatted with her about this season of Food Network Star. She discussed Penny (of course) and why her original concept for a Food Network show didn't fit the bill.
