    I'm glad that Ted has worn other colored shirts besides black. Even though black is more chic and slendering, which he doesn't need, some color livens up his face and he has a very nice face!

    "too extravagant, even for gay people"? What does that mean? :rolleyes

    Although I am still a big fan of Ted and was generally surprised at the lack of success with this particular episode....what was he thinking..bartending isnt learned over night...Maybe if he had shown him how to make a couple of carafes of mixed drinks ahead of time...it would have been better...no pressure and still a few choices...and yes write it down on cards....

    Someone posted this link on the Yahoo BMB site. It's a good article about Ted and James.

    But then, we knew that Ted and James were nice guys.

    I didn't start this way but I'm being converted slowly to a Ted Allen fan!

    Okay, so his instructions for the drinks and sushi were too ambitious for the clueless. Lesson's learned now how far the victims need to grow.

    But, Ted's "Hip Tips" are the best, he has a great voice, and a really understated sense of humor that gets you when you least expect it. I think he has the most staying power and longevity on the likeability scale for me of the Fab 5.

    He has my vote for the one to spin off his own show.

    I like Ted a lot too. I have been surprised by his quick wit many times and he seems like such a nice guy. The kind of guy you can talk to on the grocery line without the "I'm a star" BS. (BS means big shot Some people seem to think that my posts need clarification. But I give you all credit for being able to read them just as they are intended.

    eldee, Thanks for the vote of confidence

    Maybe in the Ted Allen Show they can have him in the grocery check-out line with hip tips for folks while they wait in line.
    Cheesy... Yes, but I'd fall in love right then and there.

    Am still a big fan of Ted.. Food is such a subjective thing....and honestly he usually does pick something the striaght guy can do....and its never Lasanga with way too much of everything...which is a discussion onto itself...and Ted's dry sense of humor seems abundent in every episode where as the other shows stars have had a few..not many off days...and he is more astute then the others when guys hide stuff...who found the handcuffs last week...?

    museumguy, that was a classic moment - when we got to see the Jolly Green Giant turn red!

    One of my other favorite Ted moments - take a dried up bell pepper, some beer and put it in a blender... you've got nothing...
    He had me going. I was so sure I was going to pick up a hot tip for when my refrigerator is empty - then wham!
