Forget about the weight, dude looks like he hasn't bathed in a year. Yuck.
I have always thought he was a raging asshole. Nothing new here to contradict that impression.
Ok, who's going to send Jamie an invite to this board? He's a perfect fit.
I can only imagine how the board's going explode over heated discussions about the pros and cons of cilantro which will put any soap or gayforpay porn thread dicussion to shame.
He is gross looking.
I assume his diet reflects what he espouses ... and he's added a few stone?!
Fat little git!
He's always looked like an alcoholic to me. A binge drinker, maybe.
He's definitely packed on the weight, definitely a drinker. He's a fat bastard who can dish it out but certainly cannot take it.
I love Jamie and the reporter was out of line. It was a bad PR move to call her a bitch, but she was being a bitch.
stop linking to the homophobic fucking daily mail you dumbasses they hate you but you give em traffic.
OMG he looks awful. The life of a heterosexual is a ... you know the rest.
And yes, he looks like a hardcore alkie.
R9, the Jamie you love's entire UK tv programmes are based on him going "yeah, right, like throw sum of that in and fucking put sum of that fucking stuff in. Yeah, fuck that."
He is chubby but not exactly obese, he has always had a fat face even when he was slim.
ALSO STOP LINKING TO THE HOMOPHOBIC DAILY MAIL THEY HATE YOU AND YOU GUYS GIVE EM TRAFFIC
He looks like a boiled potato.
Wasn't he cute about 10 years ago? Or am I misremembering?
1) it says it wasn't clear whether he was being joking or not. Sounds to me as if he might have been.
2) simply because someone promotes healthy eating (you call it lecturing, I would call it promoting), and has their own weight issues, doesn't make him an asshole.
[quote]simply because someone promotes healthy eating (you call it lecturing, I would call it promoting), and has their own weight issues, doesn't make him an asshole.
No, just a hypocrite.
Similarly, r16, just because someone promotes marital morality (you call it lecturing, I would call it promoting), and has his own fidelity issues, doesn't make him an asshole either!
Jamie Oliver's selling a lifestyle through his books and TV shows. What consumer trusts a pasty blob like him to make them look lean and healthy?
That's like Gwyneth Paltrow giving us all the GOOP we can can stomach while looking like the current broken down car crash that is Lindsay Lohan.
If you want to sell something you have to look the part.
Looks like a bloated alkie.
I don't think he's gained much weight at all. His frame still looks fit, but his face has filled out a bit. That's what happens to many men as they age. It has nothing to do with weight gain.
And frankly, I find him more attractive now than when he was first starting out. He looks more mature and masculine now. But he really does need to get those choppers fixed.
I thought he was late 40's.
I wonder how long it takes for his people to come out with a "medical reason" for his weight gain.
R20 nailed it. Bloated alkie for sure.
Actually, he looks like a mongoloid hipster.
Stick a m(o)ustache on him and he's Armistead Maupin (in that top pic, anyway.)
Did he ever get his tongue trimmed or is his speech still "gooshy" with excess spittle?
His wife was a beauty when they were first married -- don't know how she's held up several kids later. But back when they were both some 15 years younger, I marvelled at such a lovely girl (a model) with a guy who looked like him, & figured he must have something else to offer.
Wasn't he always considered cute, charming and mediagenic, though, R28? He could probably have had his pick of people at the time.
HOLY SHIT!! Did he eat a whale?
That female reporter was being much too kind.
he's just a fat tongued cunt, no one in england really likes him anyway.
Those Brits. Always a classy bunch.
Is that a mop on his head?
It's all a gimick. Join a gym, buy a sports nutrition book, and you're all set. Or, go to a registered dietician or nutritionist. Don't waste your money on diet gimicks.
[quote]At the Q&A session on responsible eating on Tuesday, Oliver admitted he was not thinking straight after 'a few drinks' the night before.
[quote]He said: 'I went out last night and had a few drinks after a very long day, (and) my brain did not quite understand that question.'
Doesn't look like he's gained much weight. It's the bloat.
Don't listen to him. He's a snake oil salesman.
That boy is a P-I-G PIG!
Daily Mail troll needs to FOAD.
That's true, R29 -- but I never thought he was the least bit attractive or interesting, & even less so now.
Another one of my "projects" down the fucking drain.
Good for Jamie. The reporter was rude, so it's fair game for Jamie to call her out. I think that's just a very bad pic. He's not quite so obese looking as that photo makes him look.
I'm terrible at syntax, so someone correct me.
Should there be a comma after "noticing"?
Yes, the "comma of direct address." It's the Daily Mail, though.
[quote]but his face has filled out a bit. That's what happens to many men as they age. It has nothing to do with weight gain.
What is it then, muscle?
Hope this fat British fuck stays in England.
The extra weight balances against that huge head.
Perhaps, he could take up power lifting.
"Wasn't he cute about 10 years ago? "
No, he was just young.
And he hasn't gained that much weight, but all the flesh on his face is sagging into jowls. The body is about the same size, the face is morphing into John Goodman's,
There's a reason they call him Jamie "Cuntface" Oliver in Britain.
[quote]There's a reason they call him Jamie "Cuntface" Oliver in Britain.
Is it because I asked him "What is it?"

Really? That overbite of hers negates that. I see a rather ordinary looking -- and happy -- woman in photo. I don't see a beauty.
Ghosh, Stupid Jamie made his career out of so called heathy cooking blah blah, NOW HEZ A FAT SWINE and we r suppose to look the other sigh...
She does not look like a beauty (the wife), sorry. Average at best.
He called out an entire town in the States for being overweight.
Just very, very misguided.
You can nitpick over the definition of "beauty," but she's far better-looking than he is.
The reporter was just doing her job. Of course she's going to ask about his weight when he is promoting healthy eating and he's gained weight.
Men get so touchy when you point out their obvious flaws. We're just trying to help. Why can't men get a sense of humor about themselves?
He looks sloppy, dirty, and like he hasn't bathed in two weeks.
She's pretty, but she doesn't look like a model.
She looks more like a human being.
>>His wife was a beauty when they were first married. I marvelled at such a lovely girl (a model)
No she wasn't. A model? a model what? citizen? In England if a celeb's girlfriend has ever appeared in a magazine like Hello (paid interview), they automatically become a model
He is turning into John Goodman, and even John Goodman lost weight. I bet it is booze and the bad fatty food that he criticized others for eating. Hangover food. And angry eating!
He's a chef not an athlete. His skills don't include fulfilling your porn star fantasies. So what?
are all chefs angry?
He doesn't criticize other people for being fat, he criticizes them for eating horrible processed food and failing to cook good healthy meals.
If he wants to eat lots and lots and lots of good honest food, it doesn't make him a hypocrite.
I like Oliver, always have. He's not a sex pot for as many guys today as in his mid 20's. Many of us have traveled the road from sex pot to sex kettle, but in Jamie's case it surely isn't a journey completed.
Anything the Mail might report should be taken as untrue, as that is their publishing heritage. The Mail has no use for us he-mo-sexuals and makes no bones about their position. In turn, we shaft-afficionados should not turn against Oliver, who has not spoken against gays.
Those bloated pics were of Oliver following a 12 hour flight. Many travelers become puffy after a lengthy flight, drinking or no drinking.
R64, we have no idea what he's been eating that has made him gain weight.
My guess is that it wasn't lettuce.
I've seen him bloated in many pics, and they weren't all taken after a 12-hour flight.
a 12 hour flight is not going to make you look like John Goodman, sorry. He's just a fatty now.
His wife is pretty, not gorgeous, but pretty enough, they looked very cute together in that pic.
"sum" of this; "sum" of that? Where is the "oh, dear" troll??
The same will happen to Michelle Obama.
Hopefully resting in peace.
[quote]If he wants to eat lots and lots and lots of good honest food,
And lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots more besides...
If Americans were to yell "Soo-ey!" at him, do you think Jamie would get the reference?
I hope she responded, "You're more than welcome, you fat fuck!"
I got him an Emmy, and I can now say I have helped reduce childhood obesity. I am not shallow.
Angry fatties are the worst kind.
Ryan, when are you going to make an honest woman out of that girlfriend of yours? You need to reproduce and nurture a new generation in the realm of slenderness!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
