Chuck Hughes from Cooking Channel. He''s hot and a Chef. GAY?
He films out of Montreal. What is the Canadian rumor mill say about this guy?\
Oh, and he loves him mom to death. Hmmmm.
He is too hot to be straight. Plus, he cooks for everybody but never a girl friend. Hmmm.
I can''t decide if I find him attractive or annoying. That Canadian ''accent'' is certainly not a turn-on. He doesn''t give off a straight vibe but my guess he is "not gay." Doesn''t mean he never played with another guy''s dick, though.
Everyone on DL is . . .
I caught one of his shows this week and he was talking about how he had always wanted to cook, since he was young\
Cue to a picture of a maybe 10-yeard old at Christmas holding up a box for an Easy Bake Oven. \
I don''t know many little boys smiling ear-to-ear over an Easy Bake Oven.
Am I really going to have to google him? Come on post a link, ladies!

"Loves his Mom to death"\
Let''s introduce him to Bobby Deen.
Here''s a link to Chuck.\
He has major gay face.
AND he has a tattoo of lemon meringue pie on his forearm.\
Total fag face.
He is gay.
He is fug.\
He''s certainly not not gay. And of course he''s going to mention a girlfriend to TV Guide.\
Plus he says he goes to the gym a lot and has a trainer.
Definitely says the tastiest person from Montreal is a guy. \
''In terms of Montr%C3%A9al, I%E2%80%99d have to say Tim Rozon%E2%80%A6 he%E2%80%99s a fuckin%E2%80%99 heartthrob. He%E2%80%99s huge in Ontario strip malls.''
can'' you guys tell he''s gay? he has a total girls personality, and have you ever noticed that he never invites women over to cook for on his day off? and how he acts around men?\
he also lives with his restaurant partners...hmm
He''s gay...I KNOW a gay chef when I see one.
He''s either on drugs or has an IQ of 70. I love cooking shows but can''t stand to watch him because he talks like he has a mouth full of something and sooooo slowly.
Football guy Mark Sanchez has five moles that need to be removed from his face.
i love my mom but when he wants to tell truth he''ll say other then that wants wrong
tini tiny tim
Okay...I''m gonna test my gaydar...and even though I''m gay, it''s not that great.\
+Lives in Montreal\
+Has Bieber Fever\
+Likes cooking, and his favorite food isn''t something manly. It''s a dessert.\
+Lives with 2 guys who he''s close with...the French didn''t coin the term m%C3%A9nage %C3%A0 trois for nothin''!\
IDK, he may have a girlfriend, but I had 2 girlfriends...
At least he''s not as queeny as that other Canadian guy who lives in Italy. What''s his name? David something? He makes the Easter bunny look butch.
I love David Rocco! He is married and has kids. He is totally straight just a bit nerdy with that Canook energy that is mellow so he is not so American agressive macho schmuk. Hei s a doll and a wonderful cook.
No Chuck might be bi but Dave Lieberman is obviously gay. I want them to cook together. Their lips are hot.
I think Dave Leiberman is bald now. He only pans for girls on the internet, so I doubt he''s gay. Not a great favorite of mine but I acknowledge he was a cutie in his day. Some of the old prerecorded programs show him to be quite attractive. \
I don''t think I''ve ever seen Chuck Hughes as I don''t watch Cooking Channel since they started all these annoying competitions and the like. No one really cooks anymore and these cook-performers are not fun to watch. If I want to enjoy fake stress, I can work overtime on my job. I don''t need the baloney on Cooking Channel. Their programming now sucks.
First rule of DL: when an OP starts a thread about some obscure person being hot, said unknown person is never hot.
WOW check out R8''s link and look on the right side for a shocking pic of Mario Batali - I haven''t seen him in awhile but he is HUGE. So disgusting. He looks like he is going to pop.
R21 ... "Bobby Dean"; really? You''re not implying you have some "inside scoop" by pretending to be THE Bobby Dean, are you? Because Bobby Dean ... Paula''s son ... is Bobby DEEN. You doofus. Lastly, unless you''re checking him out for personal reasons unrelated to his cooking, why does it matter if Chuck is gay or straight?
I just watched him on Iron Chef with Bobby Flay and I don''t know quite what the difference was, but he didn''t look gay at all to me. He does when I''ve watched his show on the cooking channel, but not tonight. Beats me!!
#1 his sous chefs are hot as hell!\
#2love how he sticks his tongue out and bites it\
#3check out his cops episode!\
#4I think Im moving to Montreal!
I don''t think he''s gay. Just because a guy love''s his mom and loves to cook. Sounds Sounds like a good man to me!
Chuck Hughes fan!
Dave Lieberman is bald now? Damn, he had a record short life on the Hunky Chef Shelf, didn''t he?
I love Chuck! I dont think hes gay, hes so hot and Im jealous of his girlfriend. But I do think its weird that he never has girls on his days off, my thought is that he might want to keep his personal life off of tv.
[quote]Dave Lieberman is bald now? Damn, he had a record short life on the Hunky Chef Shelf%0D\
What does baldness have to do with hunkiness????
I get the total Downlow vibe, early Ricky Martin/George Michael, plus his buddies too. \
I love the Gays, so I don''t dig the lying about it, or living lies and messing up other people''s lives while in denial. (my first husband) \
The fake accent is a turnoff. I know a number of Canadians and they don''t sound like him. It''s more an affection of Hawaiian pidgin/latino chollo skateboarder.

I am a fag hag from way back...love the guy, and he is definitely GAY!!
Gayer than Hugh Jackman.
I don''t think he is gay. If you watch the shows enough you see that he is just genuinely a nice person that has a great passion for cooking. Getting an easy bake oven when your young means you get an easy bake oven and its a party! Its not like he was gay when he was 10. Also, in one episode he invited four young girls and in the beginning says there are four hot girls coming today. Maybe he wants to save money by sharing an apartment with his business partners, and his tattoos are awesome, not one thing gay about them. Chuck Hughes is definitely hot :)
gayface with wings!
Saw him two weeks ago at the grocery store arguing with his girlfriend.%0D\
Huging her nad call her babe etc etc%0D\
What caught my attention is that I heard his voice first, and my head spun around and he was besides me in the aisle.%0D\
He looked uncomfortable that I recognized him.%0D\
Very cute and taller than I expected.
I am curious to know what his girlfriend looks like, she must be one lucky woman, are there any pictures of them together on the internet,and I wonder why he never invites her on his show!!!
chucks accent is not a canadian accent hes from montreal its a french canadian accent ricardo has one too that doesnt mean all canadians have that accent really people does all of the usa have the same accent NO lol also he is not gay
He does give a gay vibe. The way he talks, he cooks and the face !!! Although he may come across as manly to some with his big tattooed body, but somehow he''s a bit ... you-know ... like every other str8-act gay men do ... give out the vibe without coming off as a queenie. gedit?
It''s obvious Chuck Hughes is NOT gay. And come on, it''s easy to identify that''s an French-Canadian accent. He has english origins (Hughes) but he is francophone (that''s called assimilation).
hey R19 from your link i read\
he''s "active" and into "quickies"\
plus has Beiber fever!
read between the legs
This evening, they ran an episode where he invited over three firemen for dinner.%0D\
Said firemen all looked like porn stars.%0D\
Not really helping his attempt to seem straight.
The Voice of the Night
Every single show that I''ve seen he has guys coming over so that he can cook for them.\
Just the other day they were replaying an episode where he had people over from a charity that he participates in. One attractive girl only.\
He has even cooked for the person (man) who sharpens his knives. Who does that?\
Dude needs way more friends who are girls.
he is totally straight!!
He is totally into girls. And he has a girlfriend. I don''t know why he never talks about her, he refers to a lot of people on his show or when he tanks people after something good happening to him. And he always attend happening alone. Maybe he wants to keep his private like very private. Or maybe it''s not really serious relationship, I didn''t really pay attention to see if he was always with the same girl when seeing him in Montreal. Also, if you watch the French-Canadian TV programs he has been appearing, you will see he is acting a bit different when he is in his mother tongue environment. Look more natural to me. For his mother, he is really close to her. He doesn''t have any brother or sister and she has always supported him a lot, even when he had some difficult times.
OMG, 58 posts and no one has posted his picture. Can someone just post his pic so I can see if he''s hot??\
Sent from my iPhone
I love Chuck. He is one of the great culinary talents of our time. He just won Iron chef against Bobby Flay [sp?]. His show is fantastic and he is truly a lovely man. If I thought for one minute he was gay, I''d move to Montreal and go get him. He''s the owner / chef at Garde Manger, but alas, not gay.
I don''t think the photos really capture what makes him sexy, he comes across as really relaxed and good-natured on camera, which is a change from a lot of the FN personalities.%0D\
And I know the prisspots will moan about all that ugly ink, but he''s one of the rare men with sleeve tattoos that I find really hot.
The Voice of the Night
Can''t find a Bobby Deen thread in my search, so I have to post here. Maybe it''s old news, but our dear Mr. Deen is living with Katy Mixon from ''Mike & Molly'' and ''Eastbound & Down''.
I love Chuck. But I think he is straight. Sometimes when I see David Pelletier or one of the French-Canadian hockey players speak, it does seem kind of femme, but I think it''s just a French-Canadian thing and it doesn''t mean he''s gay.\
And he''s got too much ink for me to wanna hit that, but I love his show and his cooking style.
Hey, just because he''s attractive doesn''t mean he isn''t gay. But, I don''t think he is. I read an article of him being interviewed and he was talking about his Russian girlfriend. That doesn''t mean he isn''t interested in men, but I personally think he is too manly to be gay. He seems like a really nice, straight guy, who just happens to be interested in cooking. And, to the person who thinks he is gay because he had an Easy Bake oven as a kid, that doesn''t make any sense. Little kids don''t know anything about gay or straight, and a lot of kids don''t care whether they are playing with a "girl" toy or a "boy" toy, they just care that they have one.
To Barb: He did have girls on his cooking show, several times. He usually has mixed crowds, and sometimes just a one-on-one or a few men, but there are episodes where he invites just women. Like, his dog-walkers, and in another episode he cooked for a few of his quote "hot" regular female customers at his restaurant.
I wish the poster who wants to know about someone''s sexuality would stop with the "Insert name...GAY???" meme. Why capitalize GAY constantly?\
You sound like a leering 90 year-old opera queen.
[r64] FRAU! "I personally think he is too manly to be gay." Really?
I wish you were in the same room with me ...
Saw him this week working out at my gym with a private trainer.%0D\
Seem like a very nice guy and massive dick!
Hes pretty hot. Love his show and seem like a guy that loves whats hes doing.%0D\
Om Iron Chef he whipped Bobbie Flays ass.
 Rock Hudson had girlfriends and a wife, too. Ricky Martin, until his coming out party, had "dates." Then there is Clooney [woof]!%0D\
I know a number of gay men who are married to a woman, sometimes openly and sometimes closeted, for a variety of reasons. Careers, defire for kids, etc.%0D\
HRM Rocco is a queen, through and through!
I''ve met Chuck Hughes and personally, I think he''s a STRAIGHT guy who''s in touch with his feminine side. He''s also very gay friendly and is the type of guy who can acknowledge another guy''s physical attractiveness but isn''t sexually attracted to them. \
Guys like these are common in Montreal. I''ve seen many straight guys who have no qualms about showing affection for their buddies in public (hugging when they greet each other, putting their arms around each other, and on a few occasions I''ve witnessed guys kissing each other on the lips as a joke). I think living in a liberal city like Montreal has made it okay for straight guys to let their macho guard down and show their more softer, feminine side.
He definitely has a girlfriend. Watch the chefography about him. He talks about her
I kind of want him to win the Next Iron Chef.
Would rather Anne win, though.
Please! He's TOTALLY gay! I am, and trust me, we know our own kind. And just because he mentions his girlfriend doesn't mean ANYTHING, she could just be 'for pretense', we call it "putting on a beard". After all I've known more than a few gay men that have been married to women and even had children, doesn't make them any less gay. Chef Chuck Hughes? TOTALLY plays for the home team.
Hello, Chuck is straight! Has a great girlfriend and still loves his Mom and Dad. All you haters get a life and try one of his recipees for anything and get your minds out of the gutter...not that there's anything wrong with that!
dude. chuck hughes is not gay. he's just a real ass dude. laid-back. chill. i mean come on, he plays hockey, did the rock and roll lifestyle, and lives with his girlfriend. i'm pretty gay friendly, dude seems straight to me...
Just saw his new show, "Chuck's Week Off." Dude is a big boy. I'd say at least 6'2" and at least 225 lbs. You could see his moobs sloshing around under his too big T-shirts.
His seemed very personable. A couple of weeks ago, the cooking channel did one of the Chefography bios.
-Parents divorced when he was young
-Idolized his father
-Father died when Chuck was young (maybe 10)
-Mom remarried when Chuck was young.
-Chuck is very close to his stepfather
-Apparently no siblings
-Left home at young age to attend cooking school
-Worked at good restaurants and well very well respected by restaurant owners and managers
-Struggled with alcohol and drugs
-At least one stint in rehab
-Very close to his restaurant buddies
-Has a girlfriend who he met a his reataurant
-Seemed very smart and committed...a natural chef
I loved his first episode of his travels.
Didn't realize he spoke that much Spanish.
Keep an eye out for when they rerun his appearance on "Gay? Or Just Canadian?"
I won't spoil it by telling how it turned out, it's really worth watching. But I will say that his reaction when all three contestants voted "Gay" was priceless.
he seeemed so gay when waiting this week to see if he was kicked off!
He definitely struggled with his demons. He doesn't strike me as someone who would hide his sexuality at all. And all evidence points to straight. He cooks the kind of food I like to eat, so I appreciate that. He is pretty sexy too, even though I'm no fan of all the ink.
Total pussy hound. Big Bush supporter.
So many phobes and idiots on this thread. 'He's masculine so he can't be gay.' 'He had an Easy Bake oven, so he must be gay.'
Anyway, he's pretty likable and great-looking by celebrity chef standards. Though he was surprisingly chunky in the full body shot of him as he walked away after being chopped.
Ugh, cannot believe he was eliminated on Next Iron Chef.
I hate those pretentious assholes, Chiarello and that other old man, Zacharian or whatever.
They better not win, they act as if they are above the rest of the contestants and the ingredients or situations they are put in.
An Iron Chef has to have a fun, easy-going personality. Only serious when they are cooking their food.
I used to like Chiarello, this has shown an entirely new side of him.
The only person left that I am rooting for is Anne.
why don't you worry about your life first?
He gained weight after giving up drugs and booze.
I have to say, I don't think Chuck is GAY... Just because he lives & works in Montreal?? Why?? Is it because Montreal is the "Gay Capital of Canada"??? C'mon people....
I have good gaydar, and I can tell you there is no way in hell he is gay.... If he was, he'd be out.... Way out.... Use your head!!!
I do think he has a girlfriend... But unlike other celebs, she's probably chosen to stay out of the public eye... Which, to me is the smart thing to do....
Christ! Give him a break.... Let the man enjoy his glory.... :o)
If he is, the girlfriend from his Chuckmas special is one hell of an actress.
Watching "Chuckmas" on Cooking Channel now.... my observations...
His girlfriend "Sabrina" is Russian...Jewish maybe. There doesn't seem to any chemistry between them (or Chuck is just a typical straight wasp guy unable to show his emotions in public).
Get the vibe that I don't think Chuck's mom likes the girlfriend...she never smiled at Sabrina (or really looked at her) or complemented the girlfriends "Russian" dishes during their Christmas dinner....Interesting
Chuck isn't a WASP -- he's French Canadian.
And so what? Chuck is a very talented and personable chef. Why does it matter what his sexual preference is? Get with the program people!
NO he is not gay at all im he's girlfriend
You are all mean and mean people suck. So I guess that means you're all gay.
I should clarify... The meanies know who they are and it would be an insult to the gays to lump them together. My bad :(
Gay or not, I love his shows and his food ideas. Who cares whether he's gay or not gay. Ummmm, only the homo-phobes. I still love his shows and by the way even tho my name is Bobbi, I am female. So there.
Get a life people... Not only is he adorable but extremely talented!
I see this thread has been invaded by housewives and single ladies who are insulted by the idea that their beloved Chuck might be considered gay by gay men on a gay website largely devoted to talking about gay and possibly gay people.
We don't do it just for idle gossip, ladies. For us it's a little more meaningful than that.
CHUCK IS STRIGHT HE HAS A GODS GIFTE ,OF COOKING ,LOVE YOU CHUCK THANKS FOR HAVING TIME TOO SIGN MY NEW COOK BOOK ,IN WELLAND .
His 'accent' is not Canadian its French you dumb Asshole. If you had half a brain you would recognize that.
You guys really need to get a life. Seriously.
I have a big vibe from him, especially the way he talks. He tried to talk like a macho man but at the end of almost every sentence, he ends with that gay lisp. My opinion, closet GAY, probably telling people he is BI. LOL
If he is gay, I want to have his children.
Love you Chuck, Jim
He's not bad looking...but I don't find him hot..would not fuck him.
I know chuck personally, and he's no where near gay.
Gotta be. But those tatts are a real turn off.
I think he's straight. But my favorite ep has to be the one where he cooked that amazing meal for those foxy firefighters. The blond with the bed head was beyond hot.
This has to be the most ridiculous website and comments. Brutal.
Why the trolling r108?
You don't belong here. Closeted and self loathing much?
R107, I remember that show and yes, the firemen were beautiful.
He hangs around with Burkley Duffield a lot, not sure if there's something there. ...too much of an age difference I think.
I watched his shows yesterday. Ah!!! He is so articulate, cute, cool and funny.
He didn't seem gay to me AT ALL!
I don't like the tattoos.
Haha, sorry to break it to you but he's living the straight life. He and his girlfriend recently had a baby. I know the nurse who took care of her and apparently Chuck's a really affectionate boyfriend
HE is married with three children, but I suspect his wife is a beard, maybe he doesn't know he is gay..But I think we all do
That's surprising R114. The only time I saw him with a GF she was a tall blond Russian woman who frankly looked transgendered. I guess she was a real woman after all.
What surprises me most about this guy is he speaks with a heavy Francophone accent, but the rest of his family speak English without an accent. I believe he's adopted so maybe that has something to do with it.
"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...
