Curtis Stone appears on television shows, but neither owns nor runs nor cooks in any restaurants. A product/asset of NBC — apparently an exclusive contract has been signed — he also shows up on the Today Show. A lot. In a post on the show's Bites blog, a "reporter" used words like "endearing" and "hottie" to describe him, and even wrote, "I was blown away by Curtis' good nature and flexibility." In the video, she actually posed him this question: "People have said that you're the face of the new generation of chefs." Which he gladly answered. [Bites]
