And the winner is: Tyler Florence

With the South Beach Food Network Awards over and done with, it's now onto the more important question; which male Food Network chef is the hottest?

The winner, not surprisingly, is Tyler Florence with 46% of the votes.  Not bad for a guy who makes the "ultimate" dish.  I guess HE is the ultimate dish.  OK that was a really bad joke and I apologize.

I was a bit surprised to see that Alton Brown, perhaps my favorite male chef, came in second with 21% of the total vote.  Maybe everyone really likes all of his gadgets...I think I'll leave that one alone.

Here are all of the results:

  1. Tyler Florence  46%

  2. Alton Brown  21%

  3. Bobby Flay  13%

  4. Dave Lieberman  10%

  5. Guy Fieri  8%

  6. Duff Goldman 2%

Poor Duff brought up the rear.  Maybe his explosions are only contained within the kitchen.

Do you disagree with the poll?  If so, feel free to let me know your thoughts.

This week's poll is along the same vein.  It's time for you to weigh in on the women.  Which female chef is the sexiest?

    Tyler Florence is HOT, TALENTED, AND HE'S A NICE GUY!!! Not too many guys around like that. His chefography is coming on the food network on March 23! Be sure to watch.

  2. Kristi Said:

    I was just thinking today that Tyler was hot. And then I gasped--with that single thought I was cheating on my beloved Alton Brown. It's wild that I found this blog entry on this very topic! HA!

  3. John from Austin Said:

    My wife and I met Tyler at the Texas Wine and Food festival a couple of years ago. He is one of the most polite young men we've ever met. He stood to shake hands, listened intently to my comments then thanked us for stopping to talk to him. I got an autographed copy of "Eat This Book." My wife thinks he's cute and a hunk.

  4. pam Said:

    Tyler is OK, but he is no Alton Brown! AB ROCKS! Hot, intelligent and funny - WOW! What a combination! Good Eats is the best cooking show ( perhaps the best show) on TV. And Iron Chef America would be dull without him, too.

  5. Amy Marie Said:

    maybe it's just me, but tyler does nothing for me. I can confidently say, as the secure 17 year old fangirl that I am, Alton Brown is the total package! I never get tired of his quirks.

  6. Jessica Said:

    Amy Marie, don't get me wrong, Alton is my favorite, too, but purley based on the "Hunk-o-Meter," Tyler wins hands down. Alton has the package, but Tyler sure is nice to look at.

  7. Rebecca Said:

    Duff has only 2%? I find that hard to believe. He has 100% of my vote! He is charismatic, good looking, has a great sense of humor, and endlessly talented. Where are my Duff fans at? Tyler, shmyler....

  8. Ang Said:

    OK... where can I see these pictures????

  9. Michael House Said:

    I am not into any "guys" but Tyler is my wife's Fave. I do like his style.

  10. Just ME Said:

    Duff is hot!

  11. mary Said:

    Hey...heres another Duff fan.....Im an amature cake decorator and I have learned so much about fondant from watching Duff and his talented team.....Duff is a nice looking young man and I may be a little biased because I have a son who is 22 and looks exactly like Duff.....infact I sent a few pictures of my son into Ace of Cakes, I had my son put on my ace of cakes hat that I have, sunglasses and wrote "Duff Rules" on his knockles like Duff wrote 'Bake Cake" on his.....they did answer me and said that my son was a "dead ringer".......anyway I tape every episode of Ace of Cakes.....all the other guys are ok....but they can't compare to Duff....I don't compare looks that much anyway..I compare the talent that these people in my book...DUFF RULES...............

    I met Dave Lieberman at the Hamptons Food and Wine Festival two years ago, he was the absolute, hands down, biggest jerk to ever walk this earth! Ugh!
