Move over Martha Stewart! ABC network crowns the new Domestic Diva, or should we say, "DIVO"!
Hollywood, CA July 14, 2004 -- ABC's new reality TV competition, the "Great Domestic Showdown," announces an unexpected winner from a pack of 6 determined domestic competitors. In an under dog victory reminiscent of the movie Rocky, real life Italian Stallion and Hollywood event producer Frank Fontana claims the crown of Domestic Divo and is on his way to building a media empire of domestic greatness!
Fontana had this to say about winning the show, "I was truly grateful and thrilled, to a have won the competition! I hope I inspired people to dream big and take creative chances in their lives. He goes on to say, "It's about time Macho makes a comeback in the lifestyle world, and I am proud to lead that charge!"
Each contestant had to prove their skills in decorating, cooking, entertaining, and for the final challenge, produce an entire wedding in two days. Judging the intense competition were Sandra Lee, host of the Food Network's Semi- Homemade; Robert Verdi, host of Discovery Channel's Surprise by Design; and Govind Armstrong, one of LA's top chefs!.
The three celebrity judges gaged originality, creativity, resourcefulness and ability to stay within the rules under strict time constraints!
Frank's reward...a pilot deal for a big time television show of his own, a book deal with Hyperion Books, and a featured appearance on Good Morning America!
With a book to write and a TV show to put together, you can bet Frank Fontana will be a busy man in the up coming months. Frank is currently scheduled to appear on various national talk shows and news programs in the up coming weeks.
