Anthony Bourdain is Your Eater of the Year
He can always see you…
Despite certain commenters protestations that he is so over already, and others’ pleas that he needs to get off the book tours and back into the kitchen, there was virtually no contest: Anthony Bourdain is the 1st Annual Endless Simmer Eater of the Year.
With 450 of you voting, Mr. Bourdain more than doubled his nearest competitor, Joey Chestnut.
Padma Lakshmi came in a respectable third, cementing her often contentious status as a bona fide eater. Al Gore, meanwhile, had to settle for his frequent position as always the nominee, never the top dog.
Thanks for voting – and don’t forget to send us news on your favorite eaters throughout 2008. In the meantime, we’ll keep you updated on the many exploits of the talented Mr. Bourdain.
I don’t care if he’s over or not: Anthony Bourdain turns me into a shrieky fangirl.
I call a recount. Padma should have won. I mean, look at her, AMAZING!
Don Zinn was robbed. Boooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!
