Yesterday’s Top Chef recap sparked a commenter debate as to who everyone’s favorite red-whiskered whisker, Kevin, most resembles. First time we saw him we thought of a bearded Conan O’Brien after eating, say, 130 hot wings, but boy did that get one-upped: Is he the Travelocity gnome? Yukon Cornelius of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”? Snarf from Thundercats? A ginger Santa (say, Kris Kringle from Santa Claus Is Coming to Town)? To further confuse things, Entertainment Weekly’s PopWatch blog has noticed that he’s also a dead ringer for the Ghost of Christmas Present from A Muppet’s Christmas Carol. We’ve arranged them above for your consideration — what’s the verdict?
Clockwise from top left: Kevin, Ghost of Christmas Present, the Gnome, Kris Kringle, Snarf, Yukon Cornelius.
