13. Kaz Edwards vs. Joshua Jackson

We could swear Uchi's Chef de Cuisine starred on Dawson's Creek before culinary school.

12. Meagan Silk vs. Taylor Swift

Though Feast is closing its doors this August, we hope not to "never ever ever get back together" with Meagan and her husband James. The pop-country star, on the other hand...

11. Brian Caswell vs. Tim McGraw

Both the celebrity chef and owner of local favorites like Reef and the chart-topping country star have the sexy I'm-looking-into-your-soul stare down pat.

10. Ricky Craig vs. Michael Voltaggio

The Hubcap Grill owner and Top Chef star are badasses in and out of the kitchen.

9. Jamie Zelko vs. Whichever Olsen This Is

Rising star chef and owner of the award-winning Zelko Bistro, and Olsen triplet?

8. Kevin Naderi vs Reza Farahan

The Roost chef and owner and Shahs of Sunset reality star know how to rock a mean 'stache.

7. Jose Hernandez vs. Blake Shelton

Triniti's Chef de Cuisine and the country-star turned Voice judge share a sexy smirk and sultry eyes.

6. Justin Basye vs. Christian Borle

One's a Smash on-screen, the other's a smash in the kitchen.

5. Monica Pope vs. Jamie Lee Curtis

Here's a True Lie: The local chef/Top Chef Masters star and Golden Globe winner were separated at birth.

4. Chris Shepherd vs. Drew Carey

Underbelly chef and owner, James Beard nominee...and host of The Price Is Right.

3. Randy Evans vs. Gary LeVox

Unlike the Rascal Flatts front man, we "Won't Let Go" of the talented chef and owner of local hotspot Haven.

2. Tony Mandola vs. Daddy Warbucks

This Houston restaurateur knows the biz is a "Hard-Knock Life."

1. Erin Smith vs. Baby Spice

We really, really, really, wanna eat at this chef's next restaurant.
