Bravo’s Chef Academy just gained notoriety, and not for the creme brulee.
On an upcoming episode, one contestant fesses up to having a porn past.
Emmanuel Delcour (Jean Val Jean, to the adult film community) was evidently a porn star before he became a student on Bravo's Chef Academy.
That program teaches non-chefs how to cook and compete. In his sexier days, Jean Val Jean wasn't much of a chef, but was adept at tossed salad.
Emmanuel Delcour used to be Jean Val Jean, French adult actor.
The network seems to be even having a little fun encouraging viewers to dig up the seedy past of Emmanuel Delcour-Jean Val Jean, with it’s publicity machine boasting about “one of our stars has dirt on the net, can you find it?”
Done and done.
