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]
