Locals Rothfield, Simmons, Riccetti, Fang winning (so far) on reality TV

Singer-songwriter Kylie Rothfield of Danville is hanging in there on “The Voice,” wowing judges Alicia Keys, Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton and TV viewers with her version of the Big Mama Thornton/Elvis Presley classic “Hound Dog” in the show’s knockout round. She’s slated to appear again on Nov. 7

San Francisco designer Alex Snyder went home on Lifetime’s “Project Runway” awhile ago, but Oakland native Dexter Simmons (who teared up after winning a team challenge on Oct. 13) and wacky-laughing Jenni Riccetti of The City (who won the Oct. 20 cocktail dress challenge with a look similar to what Erin Robertson has been doing) remain strong contenders as the show hits its midway point.

Kathy Fang, co-owner and executive chef of Fang restaurant, returns to “Chopped” this week. She’’ll be competing as a champion, in a tournament “Chopped: Beat Bobby Flay,” airing Nov. 3 on Food Network.
