Abrams Media, we have this fun game where we look at the subjects we cover and try to find their celebrity doppelgangers. As part of The Braiser’s initiation rites, we put a slideshow together of chefs who look like other famous people. It’s like going into a parallel universe, but feel free to draw the goatees on the ones you believe are the Evil Twins.
Were these enough? No? Then click here to see
part two: Electric Boogaloo!
There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
Anthony Bourdain = Leonard Cohen
This is actually one of our more frightening resemblances of the entire slideshow. If Bourdain went all whispery and contemplative, or Cohen started going on weird rage-filled rants, we wouldn't be able to tell them apart. (Please don't mess with our heads and switch places for a day, guys.)
John Besh = John Tesh
They kind of look similar?...yeah, we totally did it because their names are similar.
Paula Deen = Kathy Bates
It's the hair! Bates would be an excellent casting choice for a made-for-TV movie about the history of diabetes.
Rachael Ray = Katharine McPhee
Mostly because they're smiling all the friggin' time.
Michael Symon = Howie Mandel
I would definitely watch a show where either of these men asked people to find cuts of meat or meat products in mystery suitcases. Should we call it "Hide The Salami"?
Adam Richman = Patton Oswalt
Welp, both are obscene men in different ways!
Sandra Lee = Kathy Hilton
Both of these women have a frightening artificiality to them and are related to powerful men. We don't know which one is the Evil Twin.
Tom Colicchio = Marlon Brando
"I once watched a snail crawl along the edge of a knife. Then Padma told me to pack it up and go. That's my dream. That's my nightmare."
Gordon Ramsay = Gary Busey
Rene Redzepi = Stephen Moyers
One makes us think that vegetables are sexy. The other one turns us into vegetables while we watch sex.
Eric Ripert = Mr. Jay
Mr. Jay is definitely what Eric Ripert would look like as a Sims avatar.
