I remember watching the competition for the next foodtv star ... Guy Fieri (now host of Guy's Big Bite)
wore so much jewelry that one of the judges asked him if he was trying to promote a cooking show or a jewelery store.
I think Sara Moulton was the only FoodTV chef/cooking demonstrator that ever
addressed this issue. She stated that you shouldn't wear rings when handling raw foods for the reasons I mentioned before ... but admitted that she wore her rings anyway because she was afraid she would lose them on the set.
IMHO - if you're afraid you're going to lose your rings-n-things on the set - leave them at home ... don't use that as an excuse to set a bad example.
