Rachael I'm totally with you on.  Giada used to annoy the hell out of me, but she's grown on me (other than, as someone else mentioned, her tendancy to over-pronounce Italian words--OK, you were born in Italy, I get it).  Emeril I think was interesting in the beginning, but I'm finding him overdone now (though I do still use some of his recipes).  Bobby Flay has always struck me as rather arrogant, and I've never really liked him.  Paula Deen is just kind of a little too over-the-top down-home-Southern for my tastes.

Sandra Lee is my #1 FoodTV (and probably any-TV) irritation, though.  I hate what she does to food.  She does exactly the opposite of what I want from a cooking show; she makes me not want to bother, rather than inspiring me.

So much hatin' on the foodies.  Cheesy  Rachel is too perky for me, but I do like her recipes (cheap college student friendly, most of the time), and I loathe Bobby Flay with a completely irrational hatred. I can't explain it--I think it's mostly that he comes off as a real jerk, even when smiling onscreen. Anthony Bourdain reminds me of House--I like him a lot, but not nearly as much as House. But that's because no one is as awesome as House.  Grin

As for the other foodies though, I actually really love Paula Deen and Giada. I think they're adorable, and so is Mario Batali.

But my very favourite is Alton Brown. Just enough snarkiness and far too much geekery.  Wink

It's hard for me to think of other TV people, since I don't watch reality shows except for Discovery and the Food Network. I think Tyra is pretty hilarious, and I think Tim Gunn of Project Runway is simply amazing.

Fight evil: read books.
