This past summer, Bobby Flay shocked viewers and Food Network executives by wearing a t-shirt on the set of Iron Chef Showdown which read: “THIS IS MY LAST IRON CHEF BATTLE EVER.” The show was live, so the cameras kept rolling and producers later told him that they would not be able to cut and edit the footage around his T-shirt. Flay said, “I know. That’s the point.” However, in an interview with People magazine, he revealed that the t-shirt incident was a joke, and he was willing to return to Iron Chef “whenever my schedule allows.” This incident has put the spotlight on his family, especially Bobby Flay’s daughter.
