          I don't see the fit with the First Lady and Iron Chef. She must be promoting SOMETHING.

            Maybe because the white house chef is a contestant, or competitor or whatever they are called? Although I have no idea how that happened, or why.
            At any rate, that, I think, is the cool part. I wish the WH chef was competing on their own. It would be interesting to see how the chef for the prez, dignitaries, political high brow functions, competes against a celebrity chef.

              Hello, I got a shiny nickle that says he/she wins. Any takers? Heck, I'll even put a fiver on it. It's a setup. Obama's chef is too big to lose, just like GM, Chrysler, Goldman, yada, yada. This is a waste of airtime with a fixed outcome, IMHO. How does the chef possibly go back to the White House if he/she loses? Is this person not supposed to be the best of the best? Who else serves the POTUS but the best? You don't see Flay or Batali or Quazimoto or whatever his name is, cooking for world leaders do you? These guys are just going to roll over and let the chef coast thru without embarrassment. I'm surprised that FN even allowed itself to get sucked into this no-win situation. They would have been better off doing a special on the White House kitchen than risking the chef's reputation on cable TV. Bad Move all around.

                I guess Mario didn't get the memo they were doing a photo shoot at the White House that day No class.

                  There probably won't be a clear-cut winner.

                  I bet that it might end up being a goddamn tie!

                  Just like that time when Rachael Ray teamed up with Mario Batali and Giada team up with Bobby Flay. There was no winner and it was a friggen tie!

                    I was thinking earlier that a tie might happen.
                    I didn't finish watching the episode you mentioned and didn't know that one ended in a tie.

                    Isn't that a stupid thing Mario did though? I don't care if you like the prez or not, showing up wearing orange crocs and matching socks is classless.
                    Well, unless he was trying to match the First Lady's outfit (lol). That's probably why his show doesn't appeal to me.

                      Yeah, everyone looks properly attired except for HIM.

                      Also, note Alton's outfit as well. Looks like it could stand some pressing with an iron!

                          Dag, well standing in front of the White House to take a picture wearing shorts, orange clogs with matching socks, or a wrinkled outfit that's begging for an ironing is very stupid and distasteful for trying to look decent or properly attired if they want to make a mad impression on the Prez or his wife.

                            In all honesty, I doubt that they "showed Up" dressed like that. This was a photo shoot and I am sure that all outfits were chosen by whoever was in charge of the shoot. They are dressed to match their TV persona. Alton, nerdy, Mario in his trademark orange crocs, Bobby Flay in his Iron Chef attire, etc, Michelle Obama in her usual "I can wear almost anything and make it look good" attire.

                            In my opinion, I doubt that it will be set up for the White House chef to win, I doubt that it would be a big deal for him to lose. Just because you lose Iron Chef, doesn't mean that you are not an incredible chef!

                            I gotta agree though, Mario looks ridiculous. Even though this is becoming a more casual society, it is nice to see people put in at least a little effort when it comes to their appearance.

                              Mario dresses like that on his show? You said trademark orange crocs... I didn't know that. I'll let him slide maybe 20% then. lol
                              He looks like a tourist they plucked off the street and handed an apron. I didn't know that was his "look".
