Japan's New Iron Chef heart throb Chairman
I remember being 8 years old watching Iron Chef with my mom, fascinated by the show but thinking the chairman was the creepiest man on earth. After 13 years of the famous TV show being on hiatus, they decided to reboot the show on October 26th. Unfortunately, the original chairman Mr. Kaga will not be returning. In his place, one of Japan's heart throb actors will be taking his place.
"The show's basic structure won't change from the structure that made the first series a hit.
Because the original host's image is so strong, Tamaki wondered if he could be silly enough, Sanspo reports. He said he does want to succeed Kaga, however.
Online in Japan, the attitude towards this assembled cast seems mixed, with some calling this group "questionable". Many are saying that Tamaki is simply too young and too handsome for the chairman gig. What's more, he doesn't seem to be much of a gourmet food lover! Kaga was such a larger than life, over the top figure that he could really sell the show—and biting bell peppers. He's like an anime character brought to life.
The decision to go with Tamaki could change Iron Chef, as he seems to be your typical handsome Japanese dude without unique features per se that makes him stand out.
Then again, Tamaki could pull it off and make the new Iron Chef as popular as the old. It won't be until October 26, when the show debuts in Japan, that we find out. Stay tuned."
But you see... The last time I saw this man, he was a deer in a Japanese tv show...

I apparently will never be able to see an Iron Chef Chairman like a normal human being.
Does anyone plan to watch?
