Now Casting: Chef Dating Show Called Chef Wants A Wife
Top Chef fans who also secretly watch Millionaire Matchmaker and/or The Bachelor in shame, prepare to TOTALLY FREAK OUT: someone, somewhere has answered your prayers. An as-of-yet unidentified network is currently casting a new reality dating show called Chef Wants a Wife. Which begs the question of anyone who’s ever so much as Wikipedia-ed Kitchen Confidential: does he, really, though?
The reality dating show essentially takes on a Millionaire Matchmaker format, where a “professional matchmaker” sets up chefs who otherwise can’t find love, either because they work 80 hours a week, spend all their money on booze and drugs, have no quality of life, or are total dogs who can’t commit. Apparently this professional will do her best to redistribute their funds so at least as much money goes into dates as goes into whiskey and blow.
Chefs who would like to be considered are to email firstname.lastname@example.org. The rest of us are going to marvel over what a god-awful idea this is, until we find out that it is, in fact, airing on Bravo, at which point we will experience a complete 180 of opinion, and start promoting it ourselves. Because, if you’ve tuned in to Watch What Happens Live lately, you already know that everything Bravo’s Executive Vice President of Development and Talent Andy Cohen touches is gold.
