He's OK if you like to watch jail bait cook things (and I believe he can!).

The only thing that bugs me about him is his way of calling all women on his live shows "darling". Sounds a little patronizing to me after about the 10th time.

I don't like his accent and have trouble understanding him.

I love watching him.. he makes everything look so easy!
I've got one of his cookbooks and would love to have the rest.

He's got an energy that I really like.

ITA

In a movie or a regular TV show, I like a nice accent -- but not when I am watching a cooking show! I want to hear and understand everything, but my brain is always 2 sentences behind [trying to translate], and it is too much work!

I love how he does things AND his accent.. that is what makes the world go around, different opinions.

I guess I'm lucky in being able to understand lots of forms of English as she is spoken around the world.

To me it is all fascinating and wonderful to hear my native tongue stretched and pulled in so many different directions.
