SUPERPOWER CHICK CONTEST. Rachel Ray Vs Giada DeLaurentiis!!

Postby Ribbons on Sun Nov 12, 2006 8:53 pm

Jean Grey vs. Female Jedis.
Supergirl vs. She-Hulk.
Wonder Woman vs. Bionic Woman.

All of these pale in comparison to the imminent Clash of the Titans we are about to bear witness to: media mogul Rachel Ray and Giada "Dino's grandaughter" DeLaurentiis will do battle in the arena of "Iron Chef America" TO-NIGHT. Which one will reign supreme?

Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any information on this match-up online, which surprises me, but it's on the Food Network at 9 PM EST.

Allez Goobly!

:o

Shame Gaffney isn't here, he could of went out of his way to tape it, hyped it up big time, we could have all gathered round in some form of internet based continent spanning beanbag beladen huddle, gotten really excited, then he would have missed it, the VHS accidentally being placed in the microwave and the frozen lasagne in the VHS player in all the excitement, then Dino could have called him a putz, then we could all have laughed and laughed and just make do with watching frozen lasagne the movie instead.

And then touch dinks.

Oh well.

I suppose it's time we got around to some good ol' fashion home cooking, these times of goodness, so to speak.

Hey, by the by, is an "Iron Chef" a good thing to be?

I don't know a lot about making with the cooking, but it sounds somewhat rather inpractical to me.

Practically speaking.

I'll be recording it. I actually like Iron Chef America a lot. The setup is hopelessly cheesy, but fun. And I wish I had a kitchen like that!

Riada has more culinary skill, but she is used to working at a leisurely pace with servants off camera to rush in and help during comercial breaks, while Rachel Ray's spunky energy will help her work within the 1 hour time limit of Iron Chef. still, they are getting help from the Iron Chefs, so that is something of an equalizer. in the end, my money is on Giada to win.

yes, i confess to being a regular viewer of the Food Channel. i still prefer the original Japanese Iron Chef, though the new American version is ok.

Yeah, she seems pretty flustered, but the food that she and Bobby Flay are making still looks delectable.

is it just me, or does Bobby seem less-than-thrilled to be working with Giada? i am curious as to the pairings, as it seems as if it would have made more sense for them to be the other way around, with Rachel Ray paired with Flay.

i am positive that for whatever reason Bobby was NOT happy working with Giada, and made her painfully aware of it. i am usually a fan of his, but i think he acted like a dick tonight.

Bobby Flay always comes off as a dick especially on that show where he travels around and challenges people.

Man, I remember back when Bobby flay and one of the Japanese Iron Chefs had a cook off and Bobby Flay was complaining about the kitchen and trash talking and then he jumped up on his counter and starting whooping and hollering. He is such a disgrace.

i remember that one well, Retardo, when Morimoto came over here to challenge Flay. Morimoto called him out for climbing on the counter and standing on the cutting board too. i thought Flay had mellowed some from that time, toned down his ego some, but tonight it was obvious he was not happy working with Giada and made little to no effort hiding it, showing shit for class, imo. anyway, still a fun show to watch tonight overall.

I was hoping that it would be a tie and then Giada and Rachel would have to settle it by stripping down to bra and panties and having a tickle fight. That would be good TV. I was rooting for Giada. I'd eat her zeppole any day.

Yeah, Bobby Flay is a dick.

I prefer watching Mario to watching Bobby. As others have pointed out, Bobby can be a dick. Mario, though, always looks like he's having honest fun and really enjoys cooking - he seems like one of those really lucky people who is successful doing what he loves. I bet his food tastes wonderful because of it.

Loved this episode, and I agree that Flay was being a dick. Although his Throwdown show is all about what an egomaniacal dick he is. Giadi is just a lovely woman, it's too bad she got paired up with him. Anyhow, I am a big fan of the show, and battle cranberry was a fun watch.

Wouldn't you rather have Thruman Murman make you a sandwich?

ALso, I'm sorry but I still can't get over that red hot slutty pic of Nigella Lawson. I'm gonna take that to bed with me for when I'm laying awake at 3am in the morning in my bed. What great baps she's got.
