The 8 Sexiest Men on TV Cooking Shows

Categories: Food on TV, LOLS

Producers of food TV don't just care if a guy can cook ― most stars of cooking shows these days have to be hot enough to make viewers' plasmas sweat. Behold, SFoodie's countdown of the eight sexiest male chefs currently taking up space on our DVRs, dudes with the power to sear our tenderloins with little more than a long, slow look into the camera. (Note to straight men and queer or bicurious women: Relax ― we'll be bringing you their estrogen-pumped counterparts in a future post.)

8. Ludo Lefebvre

Ludo Lefebvre.
​He has tattoos, a hot French accent, and millions of men and women dying to taste his pop-up. Chef Ludo is the complete package, and he has a girl ― top lawyer, Apprentice contestant, and Playmate ― who'd make any straight guy green with envy. This L.A. power couple accept reservations on Twitter, and are taking pop-up phenomenon LudoBites around the country for a show called Ludo Bites America, debuting on the Sundance Channel this summer. Need a piece of this hot chef right now? Head to Bravo for Top Chef Masters reruns.

7. Jamie Oliver

​Forever known as the Naked Chef, Oliver hasn't ever actually let himself be filmed naked (far as we know). Bummer. Oliver's a fine lad with a heart of gold, cute despite lacking any hint of a tan. His passion for fighting childhood obesity and bureaucratic school boards on Food Revolution makes us proud, though, and he'll always have that special boyish charm despite being the father of four. After all, his kids have names even unicorns napping under rainbows couldn't have dreamed up: Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow, and Buddy Bear Maurice. Aww.


6. Rocco DiSpirito

​DiSpirito was the star of one of the first food reality TV shows, The Restaurant. He was a hunk and a half, but what we remember most was wanting to try his mother's meatballs, the must-have dish at every table on the series. Boy, did they look good. Fast-forward a few years and it turns out something was looking even better: Match.com columnist Whitney Casey revealed that DiSpirito has the perfect penis ― "like a Viagra version of the statue of David," Casey told Howard Stern. Boy, does that sound good.

No Gordon Ramsay? I can't take this list seriously.

Ok, have you ever WATCHED a cooking show? How could you have forgotten Aaron Sanchez? Or Scott Conant? Hell, I'd do Geoffrey Zakarian over Michael Chiarello any day.

"We're so in love with Florence we take satisfaction from the fact that Wayfare Tavern's dessert menu now simply lists "carrot cake," instead of "Tolan's [his wife's] carrot cake." We are getting rid of that bitch one dish at a time."

Really? Grow the eff up.

To stephaniemanley....I was going to say the EXACT same thing. Nothing sexier than a man that can cook and explain at a molecular level. We want Alton Brown. Ditch M Chiarello.

I think the only person on this list I can fully stand behind is Eric Ripert. Curtis Stone... fair enough I suppose. Tyler Florence; grasping at straws. Jamie "Effing" Oliver?! Don't you just want to pinch his cheeks?! That's kind of like calling your little brother sexy.

NO NO NO!Disagree. Especially about Chiarello (MASSIVE EGO = UGLY!) and Jamie Oliver...

Chef G. Garvin is one of the sexiest male cooks on tv. I thought for sure he would be included.
