    If cleavage shots and a plastered on smile are your criteria then Giada wins hands down. If it's good food you're after, Barefoot Contessa wins by a country mile.

    I make room for both. :D

    Big-headed Giada wins in looks and good food. I've tried several of her recipes and they are tasty. BC? Recipes are good but . . . yeah.

    Both far outshine Paula "can I get another butter stick to nibble on" Deen.

    The Contessa is a fabulous cook and makes the food look great with beautiful table settings.

    Giada looks stupid with all those big teeth and I hate her meal choices. I don't watch either very often but there is a reason why the Contessa is so chubby, she must eat her own cooking.

    I agree with you Sarah :)
    Giada may be pretty, but she seems to act all 'delicate' and 'frilly' when she's cooking, if one can look and act like that when preparing a meal *haha*
    But with Contessa, she gets right in there, like she means business....her meals look good too.
    But somebody mentioned Paula Deen. Her stuff looks fab too!

    As long as we all agree that everything Rachel Rae makes belongs in her own gimmicky garbage bowl. :thup:
