Yesterday, we attended the launch of an upcoming new reality TV series called, “Hot Guys Who Cook”. Soul food packaged in forms of pure eye candy and awesome recipes, each episode will feature deliciously hot men attempting to cook up a storm in the kitchen.
Not just one man per episode, but three. That’s right. Count ‘em!
Sure, what with all the editing and post production, it sounds easy. But these guys only have seven minutes each to cook up a dish while simultaneously try to look “pretty”, chatting, and charming viewers at home.
Last night, we met about half of the 18 men from Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and The Philippines at the official launch. The focus, however, was on George Young, Josiah Mizukami, and Henry Golding. Uh, when guests weren’t busy ogling over half naked men in aprons serving hors d’oeuvres and wine, of course.
George Young is a half Greek half Chinese lawyer by trade (surprise surprise), who found his calling to pursue a modeling career. Eventually, he ventured into being a presenter/actor (he recently finished a box office run in a Bollywood film) and since then, he has graced television screens in Britain and across Asia, and is now looking to cook up a storm.
His signature dish? “George’s Celebratory Wrap” aka Beef Steak Wrap.
Cleo’s Most Eligible Bachelor of 2011, however, hails from a completely different background, having conquered the Asian entertainment and fashion scene. Born in Hawaii, Josiah Mizukami is a half Japanese and half Caucasian model turned host who is famous for his well chiseled body (that must’ve taken a lot of hours at the gym!) and is a constant fixture in just about all of the mainstream media.
He says that he knows a “Seafood and Watercress Salad” like the back of his hand. Hmm. We’ll see!
And last but sure as hell not least, the English and Iban warrior from none other than Malaysia, Henry Golding. From hair styling to fixing bad hair days, to becoming the face and voice of Malaysian TV, he says that he has merged his love for hosting and his passion for travel. Somewhere in those travels, he must’ve also discovered his love for cooking!
The Elle magazine’s Host of the Year says he makes a mean “Roast Chicken”.
Well, as they would say, hot men, good food, and great fun. What else can we ask for? Right?
