Jeff McInnis: “In a Past Life, Padma [Lakshmi] Was a Cow and She Just Sat in a Salt Lick the Whole Time, Just [Licking]”

















Wow, possums, just wow.

We don’t know where to start with Jeff’s statement (made in this video at the 5:40 mark): the Hindu thing (reincarnation, cow), the rather stinging if amusing notion of a bovine Padma, the connection between Padma and saltiness, or Jeff’s rather good impression of Padma as a cow or rather bad impression of a cunning linguist.

Well, as Jeff himself put it after his comment, “Jesus, I know that’s gonna burn me.”

Perhaps, but he seems only the latest in a long list of those speaking ill of Pads. Why, oh why, does no one seem to care for her? When did she became a not-so-sacred cow?

I saw this clip the other day. Jeff was very funny and seemed to have much more personality than when he was still in the competition.

Because Padma doesn't know jack about food. She married a rich older man and managed to wangle herself a cookbook deal but that doesn't qualify her to judge other people. Have you ever, even once, heard her say anything definitive that wasn't simply parroting (often immediately after) one of the other judges. Watch Tom's face when she talks. The veiled comments? Are because the contestants know she is NOT any sort of food expert.
