This whole Tom Colicchioasbear thing has gotten out of hand. Anybody whos ever looked at a Tom of Finland album can tell you that it takes more than a bald head and a vaguely burly frame to be a bear. Coleek doesnt even have a mustache! And yet there is Queer Eye alum Ted Allen, in his Top Chef blog, propagating the Ursine Mystique even further: While I would love to see Tom cooking in stilettos and a teddy as much as the next guy, its not likely to happen at least, not on television. Hed lose all his cred with the bear community. Scandalous!

Naturally, our Top Chef gayness guru, L.A.s Amuse Biatch, had to weigh in on this, observing, We have a perfect solution: Tom Colicchio cooking steaks in a leather codpiece and chaps. Forget aged steak and raw bars. Thats how you fill Craftsteak every night!
