Maxim magazine has released its list of TV's sexiest chefs and the winner may surprise you.

At number five is girl-next-door Eden Grinshpan from the Cooking Channel's "Eden Eats."

At four, is "Ask Aida" star Aida Mollenkamp. She trained at the Cordon Bleu and has a really big mouth-- a definite plus for the Maxim crowd.

Number three is Giada DeLaurentiis. She's been known to do her "cooking" show in a bikini on a jet ski.

Number two is Padma Lakshmi of "Top Chef." After watching her sexy commercial for Carl's Jr. hamburgers, it's amazing she was not voted "sexiest TV chef" this year.

So who was Number One? Paula Deen, the queen of southern comfort food and barrels of butter. She uses so much butter in her dishes; Maxim didn't even show her photo in their poll... just a stick of butter.
