Food Network host Paula Deen was the Grand Marshal of the 122nd Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California this weekend, and she led the parade in a 1923 Rolls-Royce accompanied by Santa Claus husband Michael Groover. She also flipped the coin at the beginning of the Rose Bowl football game, before which she told the players, "I'm not used to flippin' without my skillet." In the video of the parade below, Deen's car emerges from the circles of flag dancers just before the 3:00 minute mark.
