Why Is Carla So Loud On The Chew?

Atomic76 Jul 22, 2013 07:53 AM

I like to have some shows on in the background while I am working, and I don't understand why the producers don't ask her to tone it down a bit. She's always yelling and shrieking, and talking over the other people on the show. Gives me a splitting headache when trying to watch the show.

    That's part of her schtick. Trying to yell out a personality, I guess.

      I've met Carla. She's pretty much like that. Effusive. Expressive. Very warm and friendly. I found her to be delightful.

        Carla Hall has character and she is not afraid to show it. I don't see anything wrong with that, I like her.
        I like the show, and for those crying that there is no (new) instructional cooking show on TV, there are plenty of good ideas and recipes shared and I take the sometimes a bit silly stuff along with that.
        I would say, if Michael Symon's laugh or Carla's voice bothers you, don't watch the show?

          Carla is loud, Mario is smug, Daphne is Mss. Perfect, Michael relatable in terms of what he cooks, and the fellow from what not to wear just goes with the flow. I am not a fan of the show. Frenetic to say the least.

            I love that show. I think there is a little something for everyone and I love that they let the hosts be themselves. There are good ideas for all levels of cooks as well as dishes in every price range. I find it far more entertaining and useful than anything currently on the food network.

              The food network has lost its way, its not about cooking anymore, its about contests and nonsense, all reruns seem to play. I am finding better cooking shows on public tv or regular stations. I don't care for the format of the Chew.

                Ahh, the shift from education to entertainment.

                  Too much entertainment too much cooking contests and too much baskets of obscure food.
