Sure, watching an Emeril show isn't something you proudly bring up at cocktail parties (and you're ALWAYS bringing stuff up at cocktail parties!), but the man is definitely entertaining. He's also got 14 restaurants that have earned him fans in New Orleans, Charlotte, Vegas, Orlando, and Bethlehem, PA. Plus, he's got more "bam" than a Flintstones family reunion. He's just, well... your aunt kind of loves him.
