The Hearty Boys

In 2005, Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh went down in history as Food Network's first-ever reality TV-made stars. The winners — both partners in business as well as in life — had their own show, Party Line With the Hearty Boys, on the network for a few seasons. They adopted a son, Nate, published a cookbook, and operate a Chicago restaurant and catering business.
