Got any more?

    I love the Hosea/Youk comparison.

    I also think Hosea looks like Will Sasso, MadTV alum.... Don't have time to scout out photos.

      First Hosea, then take away the facial hair you get... His separated at birth bro', Will Sasso:

        Only Hosea photo attached in my other post....

        Let's see if the Will Sasso one attaches this time:

        Yes! That was my first impression of Jeff. And I was also wondering why Hosea looked familiar -- Youuuuuk is a good one.

        I also thought Marcel (well, more the hair than the man) reminded me of Hugh Jackman in X-Men.

          The first time we saw the opening credits, DH said, what's Chase doing on Top Chef. I keep expecting Jeff to speak with an accent.

            I must have missed your post the last time, beachmouse. I just had someone remind me on another board of who Jeff reminds me of: Dr. Chase in the TV show "House". Practically twins. Especially in these two pictures in their white coats. :-)

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

                And Youkilis looks just like Bluto/Brutus from Popeye

                  Arrianne = Alice

                  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.

                      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)

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

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

                                Lol....my husband is stuck on that one, too. That's like the only thing he sees fit to comment on during Top Chef.
