Iron Chef America Flay-Pagano

How can the lady judge with the red hat be fair, how rude to cover her face with that awful hat. Maybe has a black eye.

  1. You mean this 2006 episode
    more recently she was judge on Top Chef Masters
    Looks like she usually wears hats, the bigger and flashier the better. But I don't see what that has to do with the quality of her judging.

    1. Her "thing" was to partially cover her face so she could eat at restaurants (and do her work as a critic) without being recognized. I think it became a shtick more than anything in her appearances, but looks like she's largely given it up.

      1. I really didn't mean to sound as critical as it did, I didn't say it affected the quality of her judging, but to me she looked so odd. sorry
