Rachael Ray or ?

I just finished reading this profile of Rachael Ray from the New York Times (subscription), and a poll question immediately popped into my head.

Is Rachael Ray the single most irritating person on television, period? Maybe since Chris Kattan, even?

I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who would dare state that any current TV "personality" exceeds the insanely high irritation factor of Ms. Ray's sheer perky, bubbly ickiness.

But I'm all ears...can anyone POSSIBLY think of someone more irritating? I don't have that fancy pants "polling capability" on this blog, so just throw other candidates below in comments. Or simply grunt agreement that Rachael Ray is the single most irritating person on television, period.

OKay, so Rachel is annoying. But I like her story. I like Rachel, in that way where I think I would like her for about two minutes, until she said, "How Cool is that?" and then I might like to strangle her. She reminds me of those uber bubbly girls in high school.

Hey, I don't care what anyone says. She's cute and charming. I watch her shows to watch her, not the cooking. I wouldn't mind having that "annoying" girl as my girfriend.

Who is Rachel Ray?

Munich: Fortunately, for you, the Ray virus hasn't spread to Southern Germany. If I were you, I'd advise the local authorities of the danger, however, and make them add the Ray threat as part of their Emergency Preparedness Plan.

I love her 30 mintue shows! And I suppose she does become too bubbly at times.

Rachel Ray is incredibly annoying. I think it was her reference to Extra Virgin Olive Oil as EVOO just one too many times that made me insane. Too damn cutesy.

I have to agree that Rachel Ray is one of the most annoying people on TV today. She's just too fake. She's up there with Mary Hart for my list of annoying people. Also annoying-- most of our local newscasters. I moved from the East a couple years ago. I can appreciate the homegrown look of the reporters, but lets get some journalistic talent in there. OK that's my input.

I may be in the minority here but I think Emeril's pretty annoying too... together they'll drive us all to eat out!
