Next Iron Chef »
Have you braved the obnoxious pop-up ads and auto-start videos on Food Network’s website and voted for your favorite Next Iron Chef contestant? No? Because you can! And you can vote TEN TIMES A DAY!
Anyway, I just cast my vote for Anne Burrell because I wanted to see the results. And frankly, I’m shocked and appalled by them:
Anne Burrell is in 1st place. No surprise there.
ROBERT IRVINE is in position #2. And Chuck Hughes is in third place. Um, okay?
Since this is a fan vote, it’s not about what the food tastes like (since we’re not tasting it) or how good these people really are in the kitchen (since we have absolutely no clue). It’s an 11th grade POPULARITY CONTEST and the most well known and well liked faces win.
Personally, Robert Irvine has always annoyed the hell out of me, and I know nothing about Chuck Hughes other than the fact he thinks he’s cool because he can stay on a skateboard for 3 seconds. It’s only when comparing Robert and Chuck to the others on the list that I can see why the vote is turning out the way it is.
Bottom line: If Burrell doesn’t win, I’d like Guarnaschelli to win. And if Guarnaschelli doesn’t win, I really don’t care who wins. The rest of those contestants are more dull than the coat of paint on my grandmother’s 1989 Buick. Call me crazy, but the end of the day, would you really tune in to watch Beau MacMillan or Michael Chiarello compete against someone?
