Maxim's Hottest Female Celeb Chefs

You'll never guess their number one

Back in September, Maxim posted their list for the five hottest female TV chefs and it's only going viral now. In ascending order of hotness: Eden Grinshpan, Aida Mollenkamp, Giada DeLaurentiis, Padma Lakshmi, and in first place, Paula Deen.

The first four we understand. Eden's got the girl-next-door vibe, Aida's posh and put together, Giada's sweet and Italian, and Padma is a former model. But Paula Deen beat them all out. Here's what Maxim says:

"Anthony Bourdain may think she's the most dangerous person in America thanks to her calorie-packed cooking, but we find danger sexy. Just imagining the slippery, sloppy butter-sex we'd have with Paula makes us... hungry for a bacon-wrapped, beer batter-fried stick of butter, weirdly."

Maxim even featured a picture of butter instead of a real headshot of Paula. Classy. HuffPo's got a slideshow of Paula making her butter, bacon, and beer-loaded dishes, if you're in the mood. [HuffPo]
