Is this really notable and encyclopedia-worthy? Looks like a vanity entry to me. Please vote. Ropers 00:47, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)

  • It doesn´t seem that important to me maybe in a local newspaper, but not in an encyclopedy

Just as valid as the list of other Food Network chefs! Are we going to eliminate all popular culture references from the encyclopedia? Better delete the ones for Emeril Lagassse and Julia Child. They are/were, afterall, just TV chefs as these fellows are. Jale

    • N.b. This user blanked the discussion. Reverted by me. Geogre 01:50, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Name of their TV show? when it went on the air? title of a book or two? Cut the self-serving nonsense. What a waste of time. Wetman 01:30, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: Non-notable. Apparently a regional show. Were it to be national or syndicated nationally, I would vote to keep. Geogre 01:51, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Alexa rank of 480,886. Not high enough for wide notability, and Wikipedia is not a web guide (as a comparison, a randomly selected cookery site from a google search, www.texascooking.com, ranks 93,027 with Alexa, while a famous British chef at www.deliaonline ranks at number 37,368). If their book is a roaring success, maybe they'll deserve an article, but there are hordes of cookery books out there, and hordes of TV chefs. Average Earthman 02:00, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. This very much feels like self-promotion. Original article has POV, reads like a PR blurb, and conveniently has Amazon link and 1-sentence article about the publisher. Editor at 168.143.113.138 reversed the vfd and added this to list of chefs. Maybe articles for each of the "Three Guys" but not an article for the title of this trio. --Junesix 03:10, Aug 29, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Non-notable self-promotion. Though I'm sure it's yummy. But wasn't this book already weritten by Jerome K. Jerome? -- orthogonal 22:08, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)
