    Somebody who is good with remembering names . . . . . HELP!!

    To me, Ed looks like a comedian/actor guy who's name I cannot remember. There is a physical resemblance, especially in the face.

    The guy I'm thinking about talks really slow. Cannot remember his name or any of the jokes that might have made him "famous". Think he's done a few movies, but again, I can't think of what they might have been, although I have a vague inkling that there might have been a comedy about being in outer space or being an astronaut.

    Anybody?????

    Been reading the reviews that people have posted on the Schwan's site about Ed's gnocci dish. Guess it doesn't taste as good to the consumers as it did to the judges. Nearly every review complains of the high salt content.

    I never liked Ed for some reason. I always just thought he came off as kind of cocky and arrogant. I didn't like how he was bragging how he slept with ANgelo's girlfriend in college.

    I saw that too... Richard Blaise was her other sous chef. I thought it was kinda weird that she had 2 ex Top Chef contestants to help her, especially since Top Chef is on another channel.
