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 :)

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?

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. 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.

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'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.

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 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.
