Spelling Bee-atch: Is Bravo So Distracted by “Gorges” Guest Judge’s Looks That It Can’t Spell His Name Right (Either of Them)?

Possums, that's a screencap of the preview for this week's episode, featuring as guest judge the renowned pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini.

You'll notice that's Johnny with two n's and Iuzzini with two z's and one n.

So let's see, Bravo. The man is the executive pastry chef for Jean-Georges Vongerichten's three Michelin-starred restaurant, Jean Georges, was named Outstanding Pastry Chef of the Year in 2006 by the James Beard Foundation, and last year was named by as one of the 10 most influential chefs working in America today, and you can't even get his bloomin' name right? And, as possum Lilly points out, Bravo can't get the name of his restaurant right either. Good work all around!

But possum, that's because Johny Iuzinni is more than hot; he's Gorges!

Who is looking at his name....?
They could have a crawl across the
bottom of the screen - the world
is ending in two minutes... and I
still won't see it. Le Sigh.

So they spelled 43% of the words in the information bar wrong...I'm guessing this is some sort of record. Congratulations, Bravo.
