Chef Academy

Are any of you watching Chef Academy? If not, you missed Emmanuel's abs last night when the guys were surfing and the women had a baby shower for Michelle. Some of the others discovered that Emmanuel has been a porn star. He answered, "No comment" with a grin when asked about it. Check out his photos HERE, and I know you won't want to miss next week's episode when much more of his body will be exposed!
David mentioned watching it once but hasn't said more. Chef Jean Christophe Novelli, world renowned Michelin and 5AA Rosette award-winning chef with restaurants in London, France and South Africa, and voted "World's Sexiest Chef" by The New York Times. French born and residing in London, his Novelli Academy Cookery School in the UK has placed in the "Top 25 Cookery Schools in the World," and he's thinking of opening one stateside, setting his sights on Venice, California. Working with Novelli on the ambitious experiment is his executive chef and right hand man, Steve Kitchen. For additional support during his extended stay in the U.S., Chef Novelli brings along his pregnant fiancée, Michelle, and hires a temporary assistant, Joel. (Source: Bravo site for the show)

Here is ze sexeeee pose for you, no?

Suzanne's house!!! Joel was hilarious talking about all the dead animals in it. Her husband is a big game hunter who has kept a taxidermist busy. Joel said, "Let's talk about the elephant standing in the room, shall we? I can understand a bear and a lion, but a GIRAFFE and ELEPHANT!!! Those are nice animals. Giraffe's eat leaves!" His look of horror and disgust equaled mine! Chef Novelli said something like it was a dead zoo in there.

Suzanne lives in Orange County. Check out her bio here. She fancies herself a psychic and told Chef that Michelle would have a boy. Turns out to be true. He said she had a 50% chance of being right and said for her not to mention it to the others. She has an ingenuousness about her and is likeable in an needy, self-absorbed housewife of Orange County kind of way. That's what she is! Really.

I got hooked on the show and am fascinated by the way Chef Novelli performs and teaches.

I love the cooking lessons and the captions help. They should just give up and caption everything he says. I don't like his mind games with the students and don't watch the end anymore. So I missed the preview - so Emmanuel is sans clothes?! Is it like the preview for the season of Launch My Line?! I daresay he would present a better view than the older gentleman highlighted in that preview!!!

I noticed and thought you were keeping up with that show! Oh yes, I remember those pictures of Emmanuel you posted! Loved your recap of the show and your post about it.

Why do people get so hung up on porn? Hello... if lots of people weren't buying it, it wouldn't be produced anymore. Therefore, lots of people like porn, so why do we feel the need to vilify someone for having been involved in it at some point?

Oh yeah... RELIGION!!
