Cookbook author and actress (The Ten Commandments), the 36-year-old wife of writer Salman Rushdie hosts Bravo's reality contest, which is judged by restaurateur Tom Colicchio.

ON HER FIRST DAY AT WORK I had to taste frog legs, snails and liver. And I was concerned my hair not be in the way of the food, so we really sprayed it a lot. And then they flambéed! All I could think was "My hair is going to go up in flames!"
