Instagram/giadadelaurentiis/ If I could have any other job, it’d be a celebrity chef on the Food Network. In the course of a day you get to host, compete, judge, write cookbooks and most of all, you get to eat everything. Plus, you might just get to hang out with Giada De Laurentiis, which would make me just melt inside. It’s a dream job.
And while I’d happily do it for free because I love food and cooking, it turns out that Food Network chefs are more loaded than a baked potato at a steakhouse.
Think I’ll be quitting this gig to go to culinary school tomorrow. Sorry boss.

The Mayor of Flavortown isn’t actually worth as much as the others on the list, but he’s easily the most recognizable. You can see that bleached blonde soul patch and his loud shirts coming a mile away.

It shouldn’t come as a shock that she’s so loaded. With 22 cookbooks under her belt, a magazine with 1.7 Million subscribers and a daytime tv show. She’s a brand unto herself.
