Put Down the Reds, Rachael!

Last night on Larry King, Rachael Ray revealed an exciting new contest she's launching entitled "So You Think You Can Cook?"

It's a nationwide search for... well, someone just like Rachael, to show off their personality and culinary skills. No real chefs need apply. The winner will co-host the Rachael Ray show for a day, receive culinary training at the U.S. culinary institute, and get an original recipe printed in Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine.

Rachael's voice was so hoarse throughout the interview that by the end she basically lost it entirely. I never thought Larry King would outdo someone in the voice department.

"We just want to give a person -- a real person, not a chef or somebody specially trained to do this for a living -- a shot at showing everybody their personality and how much fun you can have with food," Ray, 39, said in a telephone interview Wednesday with The Associated Press.

Ray and her producers will narrow the field of candidates to five promising cooks, who will undergo two weeks of intense competitions and challenges before a winner is announced on the air in late November.

I realize Rachael talks, and talks, and talks all the time and has to do lots and lots of interviews, but those ciggys aren't helping her. Clearing your throat is one thing, but coughing and coughing and not having the ability to speak is quite another.

Only in America can someone smoke cigs, cook calorie-ridden meals, have the most irritating personality, and yet be idolized.

Perhaps if she just went away forever? How ironic she's looking
for someone who most likely is a
much better cook than she is and
maybe a nice genuine person. Sounds like the culinary version
of "All about Eve".

Heh heh-Mark is funny, and very very wise.

I think I should win this competition.
Except I'm afraid of public speaking.

I agree with marc... I hate how she calls some of her meals " figure friendly" when they are in no means so. Just because you use chicken instead of beef doesn't take away from the fact that you used cheese and heavy cream.

Gosh so much hatred! Well, I still like her.../small voice.

One thing is for sure - if you didn't know her (not so?) hidden secret about smoking - all bets were off after watching that Larry King Episode - sheesh - she coulda gargled with a little hot water and sea salt and sounded a lot more smooth! I know she has a ton of irritating qualities but I'd still bum a smoke and "ching ching" a glass of some bubbly with the broad! Roberto desde Miami
