The most popular name was Anthony Bourdain, who was the top of the pops in 10 states. He was followed by Alton Brown (who is bringing back Good Eats) with eight, Anne Burrel and Paul Hollywood with five, and Duff Goldman with four.
Surprisingly, Gordon Ramsay, who seems to be everywhere all the time, took top honors in one just state. Similarly surprising, outside of Nevada, Guy Fieri was only the most popular in Kentucky and Martha Stewart was only the top name in Maine. Though, the study was sure to note that Stewart and Ina Garten see a huge spike in interest across the country just before Thanksgiving. You have to impress your relatives who are never impressed.
