A little 'Next Food Network Star' power

Friends and family gather for a "Next Food Network Star" viewing party June 23, 2013, at Maple Glen Tavern. In rear are contestants Rodney Henry (in hat), bluesman Sean K. Preston, and Ambler's Chad Rosenthal. Reid Rosenthal, Chad's brother and a "Bachelorette" alumnus, is in front of them, in a blue shirt.

Friends and family of Ambler's Chad Rosenthal gathered last night for a Next Food Network Star viewing party at Maple Glen Tavern.

Rosenthal had company - his fellow contestant Rodney Henry and bluesman Sean K. Preston, both from Baltimore.

Cheers went up for both guys when it was clear they were not sent home.

Chad Rosenthal hopes to open The Lucky Well, a blues and BBQ restaurant, in Ambler this summer, around the time of the Next Food Network Star winner's announcement.
