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.

Okay...I'm gonna test my gaydar...and even though I'm gay, it's not that great.

+Mom-lover +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...

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.

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?

by Anonymousreply 3701/13/2011

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!!

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 4602/02/2011

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 :)

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!!!

by Anonymousreply 5002/26/2011

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?

by Anonymousreply 5203/27/2011

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).

by Anonymousreply 5303/31/2011

hey R19 from your link i read he's "active" and into "quickies" plus has Beiber fever!

This evening, they ran an episode where he invited over three firemen for dinner.%0D %0D Said firemen all looked like porn stars.%0D %0D Not really helping his attempt to seem straight.

by Anonymousreply 5504/05/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 5604/05/2011

he is totally straight!!

by Anonymousreply 5704/20/2011

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 6004/24/2011

Picture.%0D %0D 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 %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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 6305/11/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 6407/05/2011

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?

by Anonymousreply 7007/24/2011

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.

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.

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

-Always cooked

-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

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.

by Anonymousreply 8111/15/2011

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 8411/15/2011

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 8912/11/2011

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

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.
