I have to admit that I find him to be an annoying bufoon. Especially on Mario's otherwise Excellent Journey through Italy. But I've read that he's actually a chef and quite intelligent. What's the deal?

He is really intelligent and funny. A very talented chef. Nice guy. Lovely wife...the works.

He was scripted to be a sidekick, someone mario could teach...a foil...and it came out a bit over the top than was originally intended on paper/

but steve is awesome and not a buffoon.

he originally worked in the test kitchen of "Good Eats"
