Last night I noticed he's off the new 2014 Chopped.  Greener pastures somewhere.

And LOL!  Nice Necro of a 2009 thread!

 
Is he off the show or were you watching Chopped Canada?  I saw the Canadian version on in the past day or so...and I'm in South Carolina.

    He looks, acts and sounds like a country bumpkin announcer on a small TV station in Booneysville KY or AL or WV, or OK who does the sports, weather, news, morning show and sweeps the floor.
    ( no offense KY, AL, WV & OK)

      Ted Allen looks like some guy who was walking down the street, the producers of Chopped, realized they didn't have a MC, they just grabbed him, told him what to say, and don't smile. He still can't figure out what happened, and what he's doing there!

          You crack me up! 
          To me, the most annoying one is Sandra Lee with her matching curtains, matching clothes, matching tablecloth, matching flowers, matching everything.  Bleech.

              He's a hell of a lot better than Mo Rocca! I dunno, I just miss Emeril Live. It was fun to watch even if you weren't interested in what the theme was for that day. Wish they'd air them again. I'm watching more cooking shows on YouTube anymore.

                Emeril was a great Showman, no doubt a great Chef, problem I had with him is he never cooked a damn thing I had any interest in...Hot potted Cottage Cheese with braised Rabbit Ears, ah pass again Emeril!

                    IMHO, The Food Network has gone to hell in a handbasket.

                      The Food Network is pretty lame.  For example, today from 4PM to 11PM they're running "Worst Cooks in America".  Who the heck wants to watch that??

                        I somewhat agree. I like DDD and Robert Irvine and that's all I can think of. I do miss Emeril and I think John Besh would be great on TFN. They both started at my favorite New Orleans restaurant Commanders Palace so they both know how to do an excellent turtle soup so I like 'em.

                          I always did like DDD because he goes to Roadfood-type places.  I liked Iron Chef America because the chefs are professionals and did some pretty amazing dishes with beautiful presentations.

                            I forgot about Iron Chef. I liked it also. Great dishes and it amazed me the things they would make ice cream from.

                                I just wish to God he'd change his hair. And Anne Burrell needs a hair makeover, as well. This is 2014, and younger (that's right) viewers just don't take him or her seriously with their 90s hair.
                                I used to watch "Chopped", but stopped out of boredom.
                                 
                                Now don't get me started on the Fox channel food shows, because I am privy to some "stuff" that people would either not believe I know the facts about, or they'd totally agree with me. And I won't name names or episodes. But don't get me started.

                                          Honestly, he's not. Only gets paid for acting like it, though he does get pissed off in front of the camera. He's not the problem. Fox and their disgusting editors and producers are! If anybody's on Facebook, please give me a shout - I'm friends on there with a lot of people from here. I just don't wanna go into detail on here. I want to protect family and extended family, and if I open up a mouth, I won't stop and I'll end up getting sued (yep!) I wasn't "there", but somebody I gave birth to was!

                                            I like Ted & Ina they are laid back and genuine not to mention intelligent and informative.  The one person that drives me crazy is Carla Hall (was on Top Chef, now a regular on The Chew), she is hyper, loud and obnoxious and tries to upstage the other co-hosts.  She even interrupts the guest celebrities on the show.

                                              and to think she used to be a "super model". If I owned a farm I'd leave her in the back forty to scare away the crows.

                                                  Hard to believe...this from Wikipedia...did you ever see her around town?

                                                  In 1988, Hall shifted focus and spent several years working as a model on the runways of Paris, Milan and London. It was in the first of these three cities that she quickly fell in love with the art of food.

                                                    If she was working on a runway in Paris, it must have been at Charles de Gaulle Airport!!!!  No, maybe it was at Roissy Airport, fewer people.
