Yup, we saw this coming. Graham Elliot exploded onto the national TV scene this year, and also bumped up a spot compared to last year’s poll. This is quite a feat considering that Graham is still not exactly a household name, and his popularity has increased even when then number of votes for Chub of the Year more than doubled between 2009 and 2010. The poll is just that competitive, but Graham’s talent, personality, exhibitionist tendencies, fashion sense, and drop-dead-gorgeous looks were more than enough to cement him in the pantheon of all time Chubarama favorites. Here’s to many more years of drooling over our favorite chef.
