And the winner is: Giada De Laurentiis

I don't know if anyone is surprised here, but the very lovely, very Italian chef, Giada De Laurentiis has stomped the competition in the latest poll.  Who is the hottest female chef?  40% of you who voted said you love Giada's low cut shirts and fancy measuring cups.

The winner wasn't much of a surprise to me, but the race for second was a heated one.  Nigella Lawson and Paula Deen battled it out for the silver.  I stopped the poll at an even 200 votes and Nigella, my favorite female, beat the silver haired southerner by one vote.  Better luck next year Paula. 

Surprisingly, not that many people voted for Sandra Lee.  I recieved a few e-mails about this topic and a lot of you felt she tried too hard to be sexy or that she was a little too Stepford Wife for you.  I can see that.  No arguments here.

Here's how the results broke down:

  1. Giada De Laurentiis: 79 votes (40% of the total).  Gotta love those low cut tops.

  2. Nigella Lawson:  39 votes (20% of the total)  See, curves can be sexy, too!

  3. Paula Deen:  38 votes (19% of the total)  Hey, y'all!  This proves that grandmas can be hot!

  4. Rachael Ray: 24 votes (12% of the total)  EV uh-oh! Maybe she should cook something sexier than a burger.

  5. Sandra Lee: 18 votes (9% of the total)  Maybe matching your wardrobe to the table is more creepy than sexy, and a little too high maintenance.

  6. Ellie Krieger: 2 votes (1% of the total)  I don't know that enough people know who this is.  Try again next year.

Disagree with the votes?  Feel free to comment.

    I love her fancy measuring cups, and can't seem to find them. Does anyone know what brand they are or where to find them? Thanks!

    Why exactly is there a poll on who is the most sexiest? When I'm in my kitchen, I'm there to cook -- I'm not trying to expose myself to the flour.

    While it is true that we are watching people cook hopefully to learn, you also have to keep in mind that the chefs on the Food Network are TV personalities. It's important what they look like and act like. It's why we watch. Would Giada be half as fun to watch if she said nothing and wore a white chef's coat?

    I would love to see Paula in a tight, low cut shirt, with her pendulous bosoms leaving indentations in the butter. She definitely has inner beauty, so why not accentuate the outer? And let's not forget the men! Come on Bobby, please strut to your throwdowns in a pair of ultra low-rider jeans; or perhaps "iron-chef" it in an unbuttoned, itty-bitty uniform. After all, we need to feed our eyes as well as our stomachs. Hurray for the Food Network!

    I think boobs showing will do nothing for the foods flavor. High maintance women are everywhere!
