The Food Network employs a great variety of engaging and knowledgeable personalities, but Rachael Ray is neither. Her personality is that of the drunk girl at a party that everyone wishes would just go away. She has less than a handful of BASIC recipes that she simply swaps ingredients in order to make it seem "new". We are not fooled, and find it insulting that someone of such limited knowledge has been held in such high regard for as long as she has. She teaches improper care and use of cookware and utensils and the overuse of extra virgin olive oil. Which brings us to the next point: Abbreviating the words "Extra Virgin Olive Oil" to "EVOO" only makes sense or saves time if you don't say "extra virgin olive oil" immediately after saying "evoo" every time. She is on the air far too often. The time-slots that she occupies could be used to support the careers of people that actually know what they are doing, thus actually teaching and entertaining the Food Network audience.
