Not so much for Top Chef, especially when it comes to host Padma Lakshmi. In an article from yesterday entitled, "'Top Chef' lacks the right recipe and list of ingredients," Ryan goes Chi-town on the Lakshmi posterior:
- The preening, pouting Padma Lakshmi is possibly the worst, most inept TV host of all time (with the exception of the comically wooden Season 1 "Top Chef" host Katie Lee Joel). How does Lakshmi manage to combine simpering self-regard with an almost complete lack of talent? I just don't know. I guess that's a skill of some kind.Not bad for a first try, Maureen, possum. Just keep sharpening those knives for Season Three.
