WATCH: Al Roker Steals Katie Lee’s Today Segment Like Padma Stole Her Top Chef Job

Katie Lee was the pre-Padma Top Chef host who only held on for one season before Bravo gave her the ax for her signature monotonous delivery, among other Steve Jones-level terrible host habits. In any case, she did a cooking segment on The Today Show this morning.

We were immediately reminded why she was asked to pack her sexy dresses and leave Top Chef when Al Roker’s Robert Mitchum impression, the Rodeo Suite by Aaron Copland, and James Bond villains wound up being the most memorable parts of her slow-cooker chicken pot au feu demo.

Also, looking directly into the camera at the end of the segment and saying, “I want some [caramel apple brioche bread pudding], too! This just looks too good,” with a smile is laying it on just a liiittle thick for live TV. But that’s just us.
