Alton Brown is the host of the Food Network show "Good Eats and is the They Might Be Giants of cooking*. Or as the Village Voice called him, Dorkus Majorkus.
But it isn't just the science nerd aspect of Brown that I find attractive, it's his wacky sense of humor. And his charisma. (See the video posted below.)
And although he is totally masculine - he's got a square jaw and nice solid build - the Village Voice, in another article notes:
On his popular series Good Eats - an eccentric cooking show riddled with sketch comedy and scientific explanations - Brown flaunts his wimpiness like a badge of honor. In one running gag, his PTA-president sister orders him to make dozens of doughnuts for a bake sale; Brown meekly complies with her ever changing wishes, even when she insists he buy all the leftover doughnuts himself.
Not to mention uttering his trademark Winnie-the-Pooism "oh bother." No wonder he drives me wild with desire!
Another favorite phrase of his is "golden brown and delicious" which he inevitably abbreviates to GBD.
And I'm not the only one who notices Brown's alluring je ne sais quoi:Alton Brown is too sexy
They Might Be Giants recorded a song called "Why Does the Sun Shine" that begins:
"The sun is a mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace.
Where hydrogen is built into helium at temperature of millions of degrees."
