    OK, so what is with this Pee Wee Herman look-a-like dweeb with glasses from Chopped all about? Is he really a "celebrity"? If so, why? I have seen two episodes of Chopped(I really don't watch FN TV unless I'm trapped). I found him to be a dreadful host. What in this world is FN shopping for with it's choices? I am serious!.....is this person for real?.....and good Gosh, he's now on every page we open on F.com. Can we please have Racheal Ray host this program? icon_evil.gif

    Are you talking about Ted Allen? "Peewee Herman look-a-like dweeb"? Seriously?



    Yes, he is a real celebrity. He has been a judge on "Top Chef" and "Iron Chef America," and was the food and wine expert on the Bravo series, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." He is a cookbook author and writes for Esquire, as well as many food publications.

    I think he does a very professional job. Rachael Ray would turn the show into a circus ("Yum-O"? Honestly).

    Thank you for the bio info, Chocoatl. OK, so maybe he is due more credit that I give. However, since I have only seen him twice on Chopped, I found him to be dreadful as a host, and painful to watch. I'd discredit no one's value as a "back room" resource. I just don't think this man has the camera presence that would be desireable on national TV. Surely, I can't be the only person who finds his public "face" dreadful.

    Food TV is surely grasping at straws and scarecrows for hosts.

    We'll have to agree to disagree on that, because I think he's an excellent host for this type of show. To my mind it really needs someone who will remain unruffled when the mystery box turns up an ingredient like sheep's head.

    OK, chocolatl, let's agree to disagree! I do respect your opnion. Afterall, I have only seen him twice, and since I admittedly have zipp, zill, nada respect for FTV, I guess one might say I am biased. It's only in my own eyes that the "nerdish dweeb" exists! icon_cool.gif
