Just when you thought the Food Network’s programming couldn’t get any sillier, lo and behold: Fat Chef.
Premiering January 26, the six-part series will follow… you guessed it!… FAT CHEFS as they “venture to overcome weight issues with the help of therapists, nutritionists, and trainers.”
If this sounds familiar to you, it’s because IT’S THE BIGGEST LOSER WITH CHEFS.
They even got one-time Biggest Loser coach Brett Hoebel (crickets!) to join the show. If you don’t remember Brett, according to his Wikipedia page, he coached the Biggest Loser Red Team for three weeks. During that time, all of the red team contestants were eliminated and he was asked to leave. So yeah. He’ll be there!
The riveting first episode pairs a morbidly obese pastry chef against a seriously obese soul food chef. They both blame their obesity on “long hours and stress.” I’ll take “crutch” for $1000 please, Alex. We all have stress. We all have long hours. Going by that logic, I should weigh about 8 tons.
I think I’ll be skipping this one. Personally, if I wanted to watch a bunch of morbidly obese people trying to control themselves around food, I’d go to Red Lobster on “all you can eat shrimp” night.
Your mileage may vary.
