Rick Bayless Eat Out Awards Video

Time Out Chicago's Video Shows a Lighter Side of Rick Bayless

Chicago chef Rick Bayless isn't just your favorite male chef; he's also one of mine, too. I've always had a soft spot for the Top Chef Masters season one winner's earnest kindness and passion for regional Mexican cooking — and now I know he has a killer sense of humor, too.

Check out this video, which Time Out Chicago put together with Bayless for its recent Eat Out Awards. In it, the celebrity chef pokes fun at things like his use of Twitter, his post-Top Chef Masters zealous fan following, his geeky passion for exotic Mexican produce, and his remarkably agreeable nature. But he departs from that last quality with an unforeseen mean streak at 1:50, making for the best Rick moment of all time. See the video, after the jump.

Doesn't that make you think Rick Bayless is just that much cooler?

He obviously doesn't take himself that seriously, despite being so awesome!! My other fav. Chef of the first season was Hubert Keller
