Who is Curtis Stone (the new guy in the Hy-Vee ads)??

I know this may sound ignorant, but who is Curtis Stone? I'm assuming he is a chef, or is he just something for the women to ogle over?

I know he's a chef from Australia. He's also the host of Top Chef Masters on Bravo.

Plus eye candy. : )

No offense to Mr Stone at all (because, yeah, he is dressing up the ads quite nicely and I'm a sucker for an Austrailian accent) but I wish they'd get over it already and not worry so much about promoting, well, whatever it is he is promoting but get back to some decent deals. I mean, hey, I love a juicy T-bone and new york strip as much as the next person but those prices are bit out of my league on any sort of regular basis. For me the last couple weeks have been real snoozers.

He was also on Take Home Chef. I love him and got to meet him, but ya I think they are dedicating too many pages too him! I bet they are paying him a good chunk of change so they have to take off 3 pages of their ads every week, ha!

So glad I'm not the only one feeling like they are taking this a little to far. I too love Curtis but really two weeks in a row w/ a 3 page spread?

Thanks everyone!! He has really been all over both the print ads and the tv ads too. I feel like I've been living under a rock since my kids were born!

Hy-Vee does a good job at listening to their customers. I am also tired of Curtis Stone and the high prices at Hy-Vee. I often get replies back when I post things on twitter about Hy-Vee. Let's make some noise about better deals and no pricey chef! I don't make fussy food for my family. I make simple food that they will eat. I would never put a sauce on a good piece of steak. I want a friendly smile in every isle along with awesome deals!

I am SOOOOO glad to see this thread! Every time I see his commercials, I wonder exactly WHAT is he selling? And how much MORE are we paying to shop at HyVee so they can have his name on things? I have always loved the down home, midwest feeling I get from HyVee. When I lived in the DC area, I'd come back to visit my folks and a trip to HyVee always made me feel like I was home. A helpful smile in every aisle and higher prices to pay the spokesperson!

And yes, HyVee does take their customer concerns seriously. LOVE THAT!
