Most boring chef on TV

I’m sick in bed, very short attention span and stamina.
So watching a fair bit of TV, mostly cookery, home improvements and other stuff that just keeps my brain ticking over.
I was wondering who would you say is the most boring chef with their own program on tv at the moment.

The chef in Fawlty Towers wasn't very funny.

Nigel Slater. Very slow talker, talks waffle which bears no connection to the food he is cooking.

Most of the TV chefs are a pain in the hole. The egos of some of them would light up a city if you could harness them to the grid.

Watching other people cook, but you don't get to taste it, how is that entertainment?

I remember being forced to watch some series on Netflix, I think it was called The "Art" of Food or something. It had already gotten off to a bad start with a title like that, but sweet baby jesus, I have never been more bored in my life. And I've seen Waiting for Godot. Just wanted to end it all there and then.

I don't cook beyond the absolute basics (probably not even reaching basic standards for most people) and only for myself, yet I love cooking shows. No idea why as I wouldn't eat half what they cook either. I also love reading the food posts here on boards fir some weird reason.

For me the two tv "chefs" I always switch off are Rachel Allen and Nigella.

Yes, It's so contrived. She should be ashamed of herself sounding like that at her age.

Youtube is far better for cooking shows. Lots of good stuff, wouldn't bother with a tv cooking show anymore unless its something like the bakeoff
