Food Network to Name ‘Sexiest Chef Alive’

Variety reported today that Food Network is developing a program in conjunction with People to name the world’s sexiest chef. It’s called Nigella Bites. Wait, no, it’s got the rather uninspired name of Sexiest Chef Alive, but anybody who has been paying attention knows that the world’s sexiest chef is Nigella Lawson. It’s not even close. It’s basically between her and Alton Brown, that isn’t even really a competition.

Seriously, no one is thinking about food when Nigella is cooking.

Hosted by People editor-in-chief Jess Cagle, the show will introduce 10 chefs, before picking one to become People’s “Sexiest Chef.” The winner will also be featured in People’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, which will hit newsstands Nov. 9.

Hunh. So it’s going to be a male chef. That’s cool and all, but there’s no way the winner is sexier than Nigella Lawson, even if the winner is also a member of one of those South Korean twink boy bands. It’ll probably be someone like Paul Hollywood, though. I mean, I like Paul, but he’s no Nigella Lawson.
