Doesn't anyone else find Michael Symon's insane, obnoxious laugh mind-bending?  It makes me hate him even though I know that it's only due to that laugh.

I feel the same way about Anne Burrell.  She was prattling away about making something "super yummy" to her hapless crew on "Worst Cooks in America" and happened to look up and see Bobby Flay looking at her like "Are you f*cking kidding me?"

 

Not only that, she's added magenta comb-in color in her egg-beater hair.

Every time I see Ann Burrell, I think to myself "What a hog"!  Can't stand Guy Fieri either.

For what it is worth, I found this show on you tube and found it much more entertaining than anything I have seen on the regular cooking shows. 

 

 

I keep checking to see if she gets a real show for herself, but so far this is it!

 

I stumbled on that video a month or so back .... LMAO

Which has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with whether the show she's involved with is good or not. That line of thinking is why we have so many untalented "musicians" being embraced by the masses as the greatest thing in the world just because they look good on the CD cover.

Meh.  I don't care that she's large.  I care that she is obnoxious.  She is but one of a pantheon of obnoxious chefs who do make up words, wave their knives while talking and do riffs on the same five or six dishes every time they are on.

funny, that pumpkin roll video is better than 95% of the "cooking show" crap on TV. At least it was from the heart, was funny and goofy and personal and not overproduced shiny glittery garbage.

I haven't seen a good cooking show on TV in years, Good Eats was fun before Alton turned all crummy gameshow host on us. Fiery is an extremely obnoxious person I'd not want as my neighbor or guest, so I don't invite him on my TV either. If you want to learn something, you just have to go to youtube nowadays, TV completely failed us in that department by now.

I'd disagree ... there seem to be a few good ones on the local PBS stations, at least IMO.

maybe, I tend to get turned off by PBS with their endless pledge drives. Which ones do you like?

My use of the term 'hog' has nothing whatever to do with her size.

Fair enough... but you can't be surprised at that assumption.
