You probably dont care that Rocco DiSpirito will be hosting a cooking show on Bertollis Website, but the people who are auditioning to be his co-host sure do! As you might guess, there are a few oddballs in the bunch: In one video, Jernard The Love Chef and Roccos self-described No. 1 fan promises to spread love all over the kitchen, only to bark out his cooking demo like a drill instructor. Then theres Nicole Navarro, a retired Vegas showgirl inspired by culinary who, as if to make up for her use of culinary as a noun, ends her demo with a high leg kick.

Our favorite by far is smirking culinary conductor Pete Chelala who in a Daily Showesque spoof called Food Train promises to help discover the ingredients of the cultural salad that is America (while wearing onion goggles). Take a look at him disco-dancing in a carpenter belt loaded with seasonings and spatulas, and youll know this is the best thing to happen to Rocco since Le Call and Ciara.
