The weirdest incongruence is The Next Food Network Star. The criteria they use to evaluate contestants includes cooking ability, yet the Food Network has almost nothing to do with cooking anymore.

I won't say "can't stand"......just can't stand to watch lol.

Rachael Ray, she's gets on my nerves with all that hand movement and evoo. I think she puts olive oil in everything just so she can say that.

The Neelys, they are soooo sickening.

he's not a celebrity chef, but i really can't stand jeffrey steingarten as a judge on iron chef.

i get the fact that he's judging on a very high level, but he tries too hard to act like an expert on every taste. yes, we know, you're a big shot. don't try so hard to be a jerk about it. taste is, afterall, subjective. get over yourself.

and please close your mouth when you chew. you're drooling.

Watching Paula Deen cook gives me a stomach ache.

I'm not a big fan of Bobby Flay. I'm sure he's a good cook, but I don't like his attitude about other people. He comes across as arrogant.

I have a difficult time with that "girl" on Bitchin' Kitchen... on the Cooking network. She tries so hard to be... something...I dunno what. I couldn't even tell you if what she tries to show us is any good...I don't pay attention to her cooking. I just stare at her wondering how the heck she got her own TV show.

Let's see... Rachael Ray's voice bugs me, but not enough that I wouldn't watch her. I really don't like to watch Barefoot Contessa or Sandra Lee. I think they are both really terrible shows. I really can't identify with Ina Garten. I think she is odd and her food is gross. Sandra Lee drinks too much, and I don't think you could call her show a cooking show, it's more like a commercial for processed foods.

Happy Cooking!!
