  1. Zach says:

    LOL wow, you guys are actually planning on doing this?

    • Betty Crocker says:

      You betcha, Zach! You’re on the forums, check it out. ;-)

    • Gypsy Smith says:

      Though a little late in terms of the timeliness of this feed, my husband and I follow the following drinking “rules”:

      1 drink for hearing the following:

      1. “Konbanwa”
      2. “Assertive”
      3. “Bold flavors”
      4. “Creme fraiche”
      5. “Application” (The Flay vs. Ben Ford episode will put you under the table on this one!)
      6. “Overpowering”
      7. “Ramekin”


  2. bon appetit says:

    So many rules, so little liquor…time to go shopping!

  3. Drew says:

    No, no, no! You have obviously stacked the rules. No one could make it through a single episode, much less an entire “In the Kitchen” block. Alcohol poisoning anyone? Plus you could condense the Sandra Lee rules to just “take a drink every time she does” and “2 drinks every time she pulls something out of the oven that looks like shit on a baking sheet.” Blasted in 30 mins

  4. I barely made it past the Ina Garten rules before realizing that this isn’t a drinking “game”, it’s alcohol-fueled suicide, plain and simple.

  5. CherryRose says:

    Who needs alcohol? I’m feeling tipsy from laughter! Lots of funny stuff – thanks everyone who contributed and to Jillian for consolidating our efforts. Cheers!

  6. Jenny says:

    Take one drink any time a host has the food item already done.

  7. Notsayinjustsayin says:

    Clearly some of my fellow commentors are not drinking game veterans.

    1 drink doesnt necessarily (and really shouldnt) = 1 shot.
    As referenced in certain rules- “finish your drink” indicates that indeed the other “1 drink/2 drink” are just sips or deep quaffs from your beverage- be it beer, a cocktail, whathaveyou. The basis of the game is based in the actual verb “drink”.

    For the harider folks tho, Im using shots will make one hell of a night!

  8. Lady S says:

    OMG. I’m gonna be in the floor after 5-10 minutes of DDD.

  9. Boobilicious says:

    I know I won’t be playing the Paula Deen drinking game! That would equal imminent death.

  10. christellar says:


    great project, bookmarked FO SHO

    LOL LMAO great stuff guys as usual

  11. Scruffy says:

    Five drinks any time a host inaccurately tells you to sear meat to seal in juices.

  12. Jules says:

    Those were great!!

  13. byrdie says:

    I’m gonna buy some stock in Budweiser, Jack Daniels and every vodka company in the world….I’m gonna be rich! Ina alone would be a couple of bottles of ‘good’ scotch….

  14. Di says:

    Guess I’d better either
    A – turn off the TV, or
    B – hook up an alcohol IV

  15. Gypsy says:


  16. Pam says:

    wow, that was brilliant. The Robin Miller one just killed me!

  17. Ray says:

    Great, great stuff. :) Congrats to all who contributed to this.

  18. Ray says:

    “1 drink every time Alex Guarnaschelli makes that squinty-eyed, constipated face.”

    One episode of Chopped and I’d be passed out on the floor, with a monumental hangover the next morning.

  19. Betty Crocker says:

    You know we’re actually gonna do this over in the forums. Cheers, everyone! ;-)

  20. annmartina says:

    I’ve watched 2 minutes of Ina (more than I’ve ever watched before) and I’m up to 4 drinks already!

  21. Loren says:

    I would be long dead by the time I got through seeing any of Flay’s shows and Alton’s Good Eats. These are absolutely hilarious!

  22. Lady Callahan says:

    My brother and I did this about five years ago. This is how I blogged it back then:

    “So while he was here, we played a little game. A little drinking game. We both watch Food Network. I had mentioned to him a while back that Giada DeLaurentis drives me crazy with her enunciation. Like? how she never modulates her voice? at the end of a sentence? everything is smooth? and creamy? and perfectly al dente? and you put some olive oil? into a pan? and that will get the sausage browning nicely? And do you know what? He took a slug? of beer? for every? non-ending sentence? and finished the beer? even before the first commercial break? at about an ounce a slug? that was 12? in less than three minutes?”

  23. We’re all fucked when it comes to Guy Ferry, there’ll hardly be time to refill my glass, or even catch a breath!

    Perhaps an IV drip or just put my mouth under the tapper.

    Great stuff!

  24. Charles Anderson says:

    Point of Clarification:
    2 drinks if one of Alton’s family members show up.

    Are those his REAL family members (mom, grandma, wife, daughter), or his TV family members?

    • Judith says:

      That was his real grandma, and the little blond girl is his daughter, all the rest are actors. In fact the woman who plays his sister showed up on a Pepto Bismol ad playing a mother driving a car.

      • Di says:

        My favorite family member is BA, Alton’s evil twin.
        Wish we’d see more of him. Wonder if he lost 50 lbs. like his brother ;)

  25. lostinplace says:

    1 drink every time T-Flo says something’s flavor is “off the charts!!!!!”

  26. Maitri says:

    You missed all of the Tyler Florence stuff!

    “All right” (seriously, he says “All right” twenty times an episode under his breath)
    “light as a cloud”

  27. Jp says:

    I know what I’m doing this weekend! :D

  28. Allen says:

    this game got me drunk after just five minutes *burp*

  29. FoodieOne says:

    Holy cow! I’ll never be sober again for the rest of my life. Nicely done, as usual, Jillian!

  30. Slow Cooker (for a reason!) says:

    Julia would have been an ace at this one!!!

  31. Lara says:

    Let’s steal one from Bravo:
    Drink every time someone says: I didn’t come here to make friends.

  32. Numb says:

    “Finish your drink whenever Guy uses rhyming nonsense words (eg. “This sandwich is slamma-jamma!”).”

    OMG my suggestion became official, verbatim even! I feel so honored!

  33. Numb says:

    Also, I’m sure it goes without saying, but please make sure you’re using the GOOD hooch when playing the Ina game.

    • Sandra Lee's Liver says:

      Also, take a swig everytime Ina uses BUTTER or CREAM in one of her recipes. How is it that she doesn’t have clogged arteries?

  34. CherryRose says:

    “How is it that she doesn’t have clogged arteries?”

    Unless you’re Ina’s physician, how do you know that she doesn’t have butter/cream/cheese-clogged arteries? Mazel Tov!

  35. Olive says:

    Chopped: – 1 drink anytime a contestant serves undercooked meat unintentionally. 2 drinks if they say that can’t serve it, but do anyway.
    - Finish your drink if a contestant forgets/doesn’t use an ingredient.

    Food Network: – 1 drink for every chocolate or cleaning commercial they play.
    - 1 drink every time they have an ad for another show in the corner of a show. 2 if it includes a picture of Guy Fieri.

    Paula Deen: – 1 drink if Paula makes a salad that is not remotely like a salad. 2 drinks if she puts whipped cream on top of it.

  36. Chris says:

    1 drink when a 5 to 10 year old show that was canceled a long time ago shows up after 3 am or before 9 am because FN is still contractually obligated to broadcast it.

    • Ray says:

      And why do I get the feeling a show that old would be better than most of what they run as new shows today? But, I can’t say for sure, as I haven’t had cable that long.

      • Chris says:

        They were much better, which is why they were canceled because they were educational, as opposed to entertaining the populace into ignorance and sloth

  37. CEQ says:

    Been reading for awhile, decided to finally post… Take one drink everytime Guy says what the “kicker” is in a dish on DD&D.

  38. Jason Reichert says:

    The only place you can play this game is inside a liquor superstore….the only place with enough liquor to supply this game for more than one hour.

    • Flyingroo says:

      I would think the only place would be inside of a hospital…that way you’re close to the iron liver and kidneys!

  39. Patrina says:

    Take one drink when Gina Neely decides to reminisce about “back in the day” with Pat and whatever threesomes she had with his brothers.

  40. Spatuler says:

    If we all followed those drinking rules, most of us would need to check into rehab within a month, or less. Too easy.

  41. chefcatt says:

    You need a drink for “low and slow” it seems to be the favorite of all the chefs now

  42. Angel says:

    (Food Network Humor Rule)

    10 Drinks every time Jillian insults Guy Fieri (LOL)

  43. Flyingroo says:

    Ok Jillian, tell the truth now, you work for the liquor industry, right?!? ;-p

  44. Beth says:

    Tyler Florence: “it smells fantastic” “looks fantastic” “fantastic”

    basically, every time he says fantastic. be wasted in no time!

  45. bud3245 says:

    Awesome list. I felt like there could be more Anne Burrell stuff though. Here’s my list for her:

    1 drink every time she says “good things are happening” to the food

    1 drink every time she says “alright, let’s talk about ___”

    2 drinks every time she does an awkward dance

    • valeri1274 says:

      yeah and “shooting match”!!! today there was a “shooting match” in the onion soup pot and one in the “pickled peppers” and one somewhere else … can’t remember but it was, but there were at least three “shooting matches” at Anne k Corral i mean anne burrell and i tuned in halfway thru the show…

    • Bravo says:

      Or “Thank you for coming”

  46. vinfan says:

    How could you have missed “That’s MONEY!” for Guy Fieri? Seriously, has anyone ever heard that word used that way before?
    And Gina Neeley playing the “spice fairy”?
    And do Paula’s family members (including the dogs) get paid if they appear in an episode?

  47. Celina says:

    1 drink whenever Alton “brings something to the party;” 2 drinks if it turns out to be “golden brown and delicious.”

    • I Heart Drinking Games says:

      Brilliant addition. Also might I suggest the following:

      1 Drink every time Thing hands AB something.
      1 Drink per alliteration.
      1 Drink when AB says “thusly”.
      1 Drink if AB says “AB Speak”.
      1 Drink when AB inevitably reminds us to measure flour “by weight, please.”
      2 Drinks if the burping yeast sock puppets turn up.
      3 Drinks if AB explains that cinnamon is really cassia.

  48. Stephanie says:

    For Giada you forgot to say, “Take a drink every time she says something is ‘so pretty’, as in, ‘I love it! Isn’t it pretty?’”

  49. B says:

    1 drink every time Alton Brown uses kosher salt.

  50. Catherine says:

    “1 drink if the Iron Chef secret ingredient is something you’ve never heard of before in your life” – I think this should be for Chopped as well.

    Scott mentioning he hates raw onions – lol. He does mention it a lot!

  51. tory1 says:

    Can ANYONE tell me why you would want to watch a bad cook get worse ????? I got drunk just looking at these people. Please spare us this disaster show or I could end up in AA

  52. Mixie says:

    Ha. My friend and I watch Barefoot Contessa and Down Home with the Neely’s every day. A few months ago we made a drinking game out of those two shows alone, so naturally I was excited when I saw this!

    Here are a few of ours:
    - Take 1 drink for every time the Neely’s add Cayenne pepper to a dish. Take two if Gina sings it.
    - Take 2 drinks every time Gina busts out the SPICE FAIRY.
    - Take 2 for every time Gina cheers like a freaking cheerleader.
    - Take 1 drink every time Pat does his creepy old man laugh.
    - Take 1 drink every time Pat and Gina give marriage advice.
    - Take 1 drink every time Ina Garten uses a 1 teaspoon salt to 1/2 teaspoon pepper ratio.

    • Angela says:

      I have a few more rules to add for the Neely’s
      1 drink for anytime their daughter’s Shelbi and Spencer appear
      2 drinks if they look em-brassed as hell to be there.
      1 drink if Pat’s man boobs are showing through those too tight shirts he wears.
      1 drink when they “remix” an “old school” recipe of their family members.

  53. dkangelmykal says:

    OK, I’ve just made my reservations for rehab. Spring break and this game…here we go!!!

  54. Matthew says:

    I guess if I watch FN, I will be as screwed up as Ke$ha on her song Tick Tok!!

  55. Jenn says:

    I have to throw one in for every time Sandra Lee over enunciates her Ls.
    “Let’s grab some llllllllemons and some lllllllimes.”

    • Greg H says:

      THAT’s the one I’ve been looking for on here!!! Nice job Jenn. Can’t believe everybody missed that one…like “mixing the ingredients alllllllllllllll together.”

  56. Bad Vanilla says:

    Ina: Drink when she mentions that arugula is “peppery”.

  57. T. says:

    Take a drink everytime Sandra Lee misenunciates:

    Take the casserole OUT OF the oven. Pour the vodka INTO the glass. Put the booze ONTO the couter.

  58. Lena says:

    1 drink for every time Marc Summers makes a horrible pun.

  59. hottody says:

    Funny stuff.
    I tip my glass whenever Rachel Ray informs me that:
    -She ALWAYS keeps ______ on-hand (fill in the blank with ANY food-spice-condiment-random-ingredient).
    -Features burgers
    And whenever she says

  60. pynkie says:

    So my boyfriend and I decided to try this out last night (yeah, a Tuesday). We don’t have cable, so we streamed FN from the interwebs. First thing on was Everyday Italian where Giada was making SPA-GIT-HE,and BRU-SKET-AH. She also opened a garlic and the camera zoomed in. I was really hoping she would do the claw thing, but she didn’t. We also watched 1 recipe of Paula Dean who used a CUP of butter. 4- 40oz malt liquors and 2 margaritas later (between the two of us, I should clarify), my boyfriend is having a rough day at work.

  61. Aimee says:

    One drink every time sandra lee ‘pops’ something: pop this in the oven, pop those in the mixer, pop it in the bowl/on the plate, etc. You’ll be trashed by the end of the first russipe!

    • Gail says:

      1 drink every time she says “russipie.” Also, 1 drink eveyr time she says “beautiful.” THAT’S the killer right there. I tried this with her “Holiday Cocktail Party” and ended up with about 25 drinks, half of which came from “beautiful.”

  62. Margaret S. says:

    I think Ina drives a BMW and not a Mercedes….Do I get to have a drink for knowing that?

  63. Langmick says:

    Chug a beer if Robert Irvine makes a fart-smell face at some stupid request.

    Slam a shot whenever Bobby Flay decides to go “Asian”.

    Chug a beer than slam a shot whenever a throwdown contestant talks smack in a white-bread sort of suburban weeny way.

    Chug a beer, slam a shot and snort a line of detergent whenever Guy takes a bite of something then shuts his yapper.

    Chug a beer, take a hit of acid, slam a shot and do more coke if you see Mario Batali perspiring profusely and on the verge of a anudder heart attack.

    Chug a beer, take a bong hit and eat some shrooms if you hear an Iron Chef judge say they can’t taste enough of the secret ingredient of the dish, even if the secret ingredient is paper towels and it’s dessert they are eating (Keyshawn Johnson).

  64. Michelle O. says:

    My hubby and I played one during DDD one night. Take a drink every time Guy says “That’s money!” We were wasted by the second commercial break!

  65. Thomas Fraser says:

    Where was this game during last season’s “Next Food Network Star”?

    One drink every time Debbie Lee reminds you that she is Korean.

  66. Lindsey R. says:

    I really think this is the most hilarious thing I have ever read. Got the Food Network on right now, I just need my drink of choice :P

  67. Ina's ego says:

    My best friend and I played the Ina drinking game and we wore black and denim shirts with the collars popped. We could barely keep up with The game and our fake champagne!

  68. Amanda says:

    One drink whenever Alton plays a character with a ridiculous accent.

    Two drinks if a Food Network Challenge features some sort of outdoor meat cooking competition.

  69. REKS says:

    LOL..OMG I was trashed in the first 10 min of Ina barefoot contessa episode

  70. Chuckers says:

    The only person who could win this hilarious drinking game would be Sandra Lee, of course.

  71. kt says:

    I am playing Ina Garden, added 1 drink per fabulous. 1 1/2 deep. (It’s the music!)
    OK, How about in the general area every time a food network “personality” grossly abuses or missuses the word caramelized or caramelization.
    Really, I have grown to despise the word caramelized and created my own Pee Wee Herman Word of the Day sort of response to it. AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

  72. Mike says:

    some more rules for anne burrell!
    1 drink every time she says something is beautiful, or can be used beautifully.
    1 drink every time she says “shootin’ match!”

  73. Kimmer says:

    Add 1 drink anytime someone says to set aside ingredients
    “so they can marry”.

    Giada saying “PASS-TA”

  74. Greg H says:

    This is a brilliant and entertaining list. Thanks to all those who contributed.

  75. bp8 says:

    drink every time alton says “oh bother”

  76. Mark says:

    1 drink for every time someone on NFNS is asked about their “culinary point of view.”

  77. amber says:

    One drink everytime alton says “uh” or “ummm”

    One drink every time rachael says “s&p, salt and pepper”

    One each time guy explains the stance when eating a large sandwich

    One each time tyler says “absolutely fantastic”

  78. Fred says:

    Haha! what about take a drink whenever anne burell says she’s a “happy happy girl” or says “helloooo” to her food

  79. Ryan says:

    A drink for every time RayRay says “need it twice, chop it once”
    A round of shots if an episode of Semi Homemade is a kid’s party for her nieces/nephews (an extra shot if she makes an “adult” version of the kiddie cocktail for herself)
    A drink every time Barefoot Contessa has a really out-of-place plot or awkward duologue

    This is a really wonderful list, yet has led me to wonder what would happen if my friends made a drinking game out of me.

  80. Your Name says:

    1 drink on DDD when guy makes that akward orgasm sounding noise and has his mouth open whenever he eats something thats “money”

  81. Your Name says:

    how about one drink for every time ina garten breathes extrememly loud into her microphone?

  82. Chris says:

    A drink every time Ina uses her BlackBerry?

  83. Mac says:

    Jah Dah’s should really include “crunchy crust”. This list should also have the in general rule about cooking pasta “al dente”, especially since they usually advocate fresh pasta that, in fact, does not cook “al dete”-y. But over all wonderful game. I feel drunk just reading it.

  84. Queenjane says:

    How about every time:

    Anne Burrell says “I rock.”

    Bobby Flay gets chipoltle in something

    Paula Deen shamelessly promotes her family and its businesses

    Ina makes that desert with the meringues, berries and whipped cream

    Ina’s Jersey accent pops up amid the long, drawn out vowels of the Hamptons

    Alton Brown starts a show with a bad skit.

  85. Liz says:

    You should add one drink everytime Sandra Lee says “decadent”

  86. [...] She lives in East Hampton. She has her own herb garden. She only wears crisp button down shirts, mostly in a blue denim or white (honestly, the woman’s closet must be full of blue denim shirts). And most importantly, she loves to ask rhetorical questions like, “How easy is that?” or “And who doesn’t want a fresh lemon tart with mascarpone topping in the morning?” If Paula Deen is the queen of fried food and butter, Ina Garten is the queen of elegant dinner parties with hydrangea centerpieces. [For a fun drinking game involving all your favorite Food Network stars, see here.] [...]

  87. Rachael says:

    1 drink every time Anne says olive earl

    1 drink whenever Alton mentions the word canadian before saying Kevin Brauch

  88. blu_mem says:

  89. Nina says:

    Anne Burrell
    - 1 drink every time she says the garlic has “fulfilled its garlic destiny.”

  90. maria says:

    5 drinks every time Paula and her goofy son have their “mmmmmm, mmmm, MMM, mmmmm!” moments simultaneously! Pretty freeking creepy and I have to turn away.
    The rest of the bottle whenever Michael Groover shows up and mumbles something then toddles off so everyone can laugh at the adorable I just need attention stupid ass thing he just said.
    2 drinks and maybe a shot for every time Ina does that nervous laugh with the little intake of more nervous breath!
    1 shot and a double vodka for every time they show Jeffrey being “surprised” by something Ina has whipped up for him — SURPRISE JEFFREY! I’m leaving you in good hands with the freezer all weekend!

  91. Kathryn says:

    Drink the whole bottle if none of the people Ina invites over are gay.

    Drink if Sandra Lee’s curtains match her top. Drink two if the curtains have a floral pattern.

    Drink if Ted Allen is wearing a patterned shirt under his suit. Drink two if his tie is pastel colored.

  94. Gail says:

    1 drink every time Sandra says “How beautiful is this!” or “Isn’t that beautiful?”

  95. ginaraquel says:

    Ina’s game–hilarious. I would also add one shot every time she says “earthy” or “casual”–you’ll be drunk in 10 minutes.

  96. BR says:

    Don’t forget :

  98. Rach says:

    I’ve literally found myself counting how many times Giada says “nice” per episode. Seriously, next time give it a try. And then, in one of the Next Food Network Star seasons (can’t remember which), she criticized one of the contestants for using “nice” as a descriptor, that tgey need to be more specific, etc. And now she’s doing these ads for Natural Instinct hair dye. My first thought? She should’ve signed up with “Nice and Easy” instead… Lol
