Whatta Man Monday — The Chef Edition!!

What up, chickies!!


Another week, another Whatta Man Monday!!


Last week, Noel BARELY beat Ben in the Felicity edition.  But still, a win is a win so haha Shelly!!


This week, I am bringing you two real life men…no “characters” here.


And did I mention that they’re pretty handy around the house?


Bobby Flay vs Jamie Oliver

If you’re a fan of cooking or eating, you are probably familiar with these two guys.

Like usual, Shelly and I are completely divided on this issue.  I am a Bobby girl all the way, while she has a fire under her burner for Mr. Oliver.

(did you like my pun?  I thought it was clever)

Bobby is a master at Iron Chef, while Jamie is well known for his work on school lunch reform, which I think is awesome.  He has really shined a huge light on the issue!!

Here they both are in action.


Of course, they don’t LIVE in the kitchen.  Sometimes they go out and do stuff, so they wear suits.

Which is not a bad thing at all.

Last but not least, they both look super approachable.

It’s like they’re saying, “Hey girl…you look hungry.  Matter of fact, you’re WAY too thin.  Go put your feet up with a magazine while I whip up something to put some meat on those bones”.


They are probably saying that!!

Anyways — Are you a Bobby or Jamie girl?  Can’t wait to tally up the votes this week!!

    I have to go with Jamie on this one – can’t resist a guy with an accent!

    What, no Tyler Florence? He’s definitely my favorite! Bobby Flay reminds me of my father in law, so I’ll have to with Jamie Oliver here!

    Tammy T says:

    Bobby! Cannot resist a ginger.

  5. 5

    Can I do a write in for Tyler Florence? Because uhhh, excuse the kinda bad joke, but he’s “yummy” ;)

    Natasha says:

    I was with you on Noel, but I’m not a huge fan on Bobby Flay. One more write in for Tyler Florence!

    Machelle says:

    I vote for Tyler too.. but since he is not an option I vote for Jamie.

    Joycelyn says:

    Wow, tough choice for me! I’m pretty sure Jamie’s accent throws it over the top for him, although I like Bobby’s food better.
    Jamie takes my vote though

    Holly says:

    Bobby Flay, all the way!

  12. 12
    ACR says:

    Definitely Jamie (although I’m down with some Tyler too!)

  13. 13
    Shari says:

    Another write-in for Tyler. But Jamie gets my vote if going off the ballot isn’t allowed (can’t resist an accent).

    Christyn says:

    HA! We have this debate in my house. I’m a Jamie Oliver girl. My kids call him “my TV boyfriend.” BUT…..I’d cook with Bobby in the kitchen all day long. He has great food, well flavored, with fantastic originality. Bobby’s my “best friend”, but Jamie is my boy!

  15. 15
    Heather says:

    Bobby is my choice! Jamie needs to comb his hair!

  16. 16
    Jenny says:

    Well I’d certainly vote for Tyler too! But twist my arm and I guess my vote between these two is for Bobby.

  17. 17
    CJ says:

    Bobby Flay. But I’d rather do a write-in vote for Tyler Florence!!!

  18. 18

    Jamie all the way. His food looks yummy, and I’ll bet he’d be a blast to hang with in the pub.

    Leslie S. says:

    I like Jamie……but have to go with Bobby Flay all the way!!

    Jen Grimm says:

    I gotta go with Bobby Flay…I love Iron Chef America!

  21. 21
    Tina says:

    Bobby Flay for sure! But if we’re talking write in then….Curtis Stone. Chef, author and host of Top Chef Masters!

  22. 22
    Kat says:

    Bobby Flay all the way!

  23. 23
    Sarah E. says:

    I’m surprised there aren’t more Bobby Flay fans – I freaking love all his shows! He’s so hilarious :)

    Erin f says:

    Jamie! Although I would rather add my name to the growing list of write ins for Tyler Florence! ;)

  27. 27
    Ruth D says:

    another write in for Tyler Florence but let me know when we can vote for Eric Ripert. He’s in a class all by his lonesome.

  28. 28
    Neesha says:

    Oh no! I love them both so much. I adored the Naked Chef stuff, but I think I like Bobby better for the long haul. So…Bobby!

    Sharon says:

    Jamie, Jamie, Jamie. Does that count as three votes?

    Debra says:

    Jamie in every way except the suit wearing photo’s. lol

    Veronica M. says:

    Bobby Flay!

  32. 32
    Lindsay S says:

    Another write-in vote for Curtis. Super good looking AND an Australian accent! If write-ins aren’t allowed my vote goes to Bobby. :)

  33. 33
    Nikki says:

    Tough call!

    LOVE Jamie’s accent and he is so, so cute, but…there is just something about Bobby. YUM! He gets my vote!!

  34. 34
    Maggie says:

    This is a tough one! But Bobby gets my vote – its his authoratative Iron Chef status I think. RAWR! Hahahaha

  35. 35
    Beki G says:

    Another write in for Tyler Florence…I think I dreamt of marrying him many moons ago! I also wished I ran into Curtis Stone at the grocery store and he went back to my house to help cook me a meal..

    Jane says:

    Bobby! His food makes me think he won’t scold me for the occasional pizza!

  38. 38
    Marie M.C. says:

    Close one. Love them both. But have to go with Jamie. Although I’d love to get my hands on his hair. It drives me CRAZY! Why on earth does he think it looks cool??? Jamie — go see a good stylist — PLEASE!

  39. 39
    Victoria V says:

    I’m not a huge fan of either… :-/ But have you seen Chuck Hughes on Cooking Channel? Oh my…he’d get my vote. He is a cutie patootie!!

    But if I have to vote, I guess it’d be for Bobby. Jamie, although he is British, just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe it’s the lisp? Takes away some of the hotness of having an accent. ;)

    McKenna says:

    I am with the others Tyler Florance is my man but given the two choices I would vote Jamie he just seems much more down to earth than Bobby Flay.

    Becca says:

    Another write in vote for Tyler Florence!!

  42. 42
    lori says:

    Bobby! He rocks!

  43. 43
    Sondra says:

    I’ll go with Bobby. But if we’re doing write-in votes I’d definitely go with Chuck Hughes.

    Kerri says:

    Bobby all the way!!

    Peggy says:

    Bobby, for sure! I just watched a Throwdown marathon when I was sick yesterday, so that’s scientifically confirmed. :)


  1. [...] week Jamie Oliver lost to Bobby Flay in the Chef Edition…although I might say the photos were skewed to a Bobby victory…*ahem, [...]
