Charlotte is still dominating in the made-up contest in my mind in which they battle Raleigh for having the most people appearing on national television shows.
This time it's Charlotte firefighter Jeff Nixon, whose recipe for Stuffed Mango Pork Loin got enough viewer votes online to earn him a trip to Friday's "Live with Regis & Kelly" show.
Nixon will appear on the show to prepare his dish and then go on to compete against other firefighters for a $10,000 grand prize and a spot in an upcoming edition of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Click below to see Jeff's submission video to "Live."
"Live with Regis & Kelly" airs at 9am on WTVD.
