Just a few years ago, Aaron McCargo Jr. was a onetime restaurateur from South Jersey who took the executive chef's job at Thomas Jefferson University.
Now, he has a Food Network show and travels the world as a celeb chef.
And it's all because he applied to be on a little show called Next Food Network Star, which he won.
Casting folks will be in Philly on Thursday, Nov. 8 to scout for contestants ready to compete on Season 9 of Food Network Star.
Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Location: Loews Philadelphia Hotel, 1200 Market St.
Bring your resume and two photos of yourself with your name on the back.
