CHEF Bobby Flay revealed he has a new mystery girlfriend while giving a cooking demonstration on The Today Show this week.
The 56-year-old acted coy about the whole situation, but that didn’t stop the show hosts asking him all about his new love.
While preparing a vegetarian chili, Bobby let it slip that the reason he started trying out some new veggie recipes was because his girlfriend doesn’t eat meat.
This little tidbit caught the hosts attention and they quickly jumped on it, asking: “Who’s your girlfriend? How did you guys meet?”
Flustered and not wanting to reveal his new love’s identity, he smiled and tried to change the subject by yelling, “Anyway!,” and returning to his cooking.
The hosts didn’t stop there, though, and took out their phones to do a quick search.
They told Bobby they found her on the internet and that she’s “very attractive,” making Bobby nervous, asking if host Carson Daly really did find her before deciding, “No, he didn’t!”
“You are dating up, Bobby,” they kept teasing the famous chef. “You are a lucky man.”
Not giving in to any of their tactics to learn who his girlfriend is, Bobby shared she wasn’t there with him while he was filming the segment but he’d make the vegetarian chili for her some other time.
On Friday, Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush continued to have fun and tease Bobby by telling him as soon as he came on to cook on their show: “We heard this season of [Beat Bobby Flay] is different because you have a new girlfriend.”
Everyone laughed at the immediate attempt to get the TV personality to spill on who he’s dating.
“Wow, that is unbelievable,” Bobby told the hosts.
WHO IS BOBBY DATING?
Hoda continued: “Well, we just wondered that now you’re probably ready to reveal. That’s fine.”
Bobby explained to them how it all started on his last Today segment, sharing: “No, Savannah [Guthrie] loves egging me on. But I asked for it.
“I mentioned that I do have a new girlfriend and that she doesn’t eat meat, and, of course, I was making vegetarian chili, and the chili went out the weekend.”
Prior to his relationship revelation, Bobby admitted he’s been riding solo since his last serious romance ended in 2019 during a February 2021 episode of his show, telling host Fran Drescher, “I’m very single.”
“She [Helene Yorke] kicked me to the curb,” he added, hinting that his last romance didn’t end well.
Bobby was previously married to first wife Debra Ponzek, second wife Kate Connelly, and his most recent, Stephanie March, who he split from in 2015.
