    1. re: Chimayo Joe husband is stuck on that one, too. That's like the only thing he sees fit to comment on during Top Chef.

    2. Jeff's mannerisms and speech pattern reminds me of main character in the film Blow.

          1. re: Bob Dobalina

            Carla reminds me of Tracy Ellis Ross, Diana Ross's Daughter. Or as my husband puts it, "that chick with the awful hair on that show I hate"...I was so surprised to see she was 44! (carla)


            1. re: Bob Dobalina

              When I first saw her I thought more like Big Bird on acid.

                oooh, that is so wrong, but so damn funny! Thanks for the chuckle!

              2. I couldn't place it before, but something I saw this weekend reminded me - I'm thinking Grant Achatz is more like Ethan Hawke?

                  ...except that Grant Achatz appears to have seen the inside of a shower or bathtub some time in the past decade.

                2. Ariane.."Alice" from the Tv sitcom
                  Hosea..Kevin Youkalis of the Boston Red Sox

                    Good one on the Hosea/Youk resemblance! I *knew* he looked like someone else, but couldn't place it.

                    1. re: rochfood

                      And Youkilis looks just like Bluto/Brutus from Popeye

                        Sorry - I'm late on this board - but I just had to comment on :
