Our Ten Worst Food Show Hairstyles

On this fine Friday, we turn our thoughts from food to follicles. Among the many, many reasons to watch televised cooking shows are the coiffures sported by their hosts and contestants. Top Chef wouldn't be Top Chef without its dependable supply of fauxhawks and Sapphic mullets, or, for that matter, Tom's maddening soul patch, which seems less like facial hair than a vestigial organ. Given that Top Chef and all of its expensively produced cohorts have platoons of hairdressers and folks whose job it is not to make stars look like shit, the sheer survival instinct of the following specimens is all the more remarkable. So here, without further ado, is a photo retrospective of TV's most notable follicular offenders:

10. Wylie Dufresne, Top Chef Masters. Ambrose Burnside by way of the A/V club.
