Tri-State President Jeff West, Jr. To Appear On Food Network Show 'Worst Cooks In America'
CHICAGO – January 3, 2017 – Jeff West, Jr., the current Tri-State president and president of his family’s vending business, West Dairy in Berks County, PA, is a contestant on this season’s Food Network show, ‘Worst Cooks in America’, with Rachel Ray and other well-known chefs. He began appearing on the new season beginning Sunday, Jan. 1st, which aired at 9 PM EST/8 PM CST.
“According to his contract, he was not able to discuss his participation until very recently,” said Pam Gilbert, director of association services at NAMA. “In fact, he negotiated with the Food Network to delay his audition in July so that he would not miss the NAMA Fly-In. That’s dedication!” Gilbert continued, “Jeff was not able to tell me how he fared in the overall competition (of course), so we’ll have to tune in each week to see how well he does!”
