Yumm-o! Television cook and food show hostess with the mostest Rachael Ray is even more delicious than the toothsome confections she whips up on the boob tube. A gourmand who got her start managing the candy counter at Macy’s in New York City, Rachael nabbed her own TV show, $40 a Day, thanks to her bubbly personality and chocolate-maned sex appeal. Her popularity exploded into the stratosphere—along with fans’ laps—when she posed for a seductive spread in the mag FHM, wearing little more than lusty lingerie and her signature grin, perv-forming eye-popping kitchen tasks like sexily sucking on a strawberry. Rachael expanded her TV empire with 30 Minute Meals, Rachael Ray’s Tasty Travels, and a turn on the reality hit Dancing with the Stars. Rachael’s most beloved cook’s slang is “EVOO”—short for extra virgin olive oil—but she’ll make your thoughts anything but virginal.
