When Bravo's latest culinary reality show, Eat, Drink, Love debuts this Sunday (8/9c), one of its stars, Waylynn Lucas (pictured above, far left), will be watching at a small gathering of friends and family, and naturally surrounding by amazing food and drinks.
In the show, Bravo pairs up Lucas, a pastry chef and owner of L.A.'s Fonuts, with four other women from various sectors of the L.A. food industry. Together they navigate the male-dominated industry, dating and day-to-day life.
When she first heard about it, Lucas was thrilled with the concept for the show. "I just love the fun idea and spin of it being about women in the food industry and combining the fact that we are all young and single," she explains. "I've always been so passionate about women being in our industry, no matter what end you are in on it. It seemed like a very interesting way to make the world more aware."
Interestingly, being in close quarters with so many women during filming was also the hardest part of her role on the show. "I am a chef and there aren't too many other female chefs, so I'm pretty used to being surrounded by crap-talking, sweaty men in a kitchen all day," Lucas says. "I was definitely not used to spending so much time with women, so that was definitely a big blow and a big adjustment for me.I think regardless you get people together on a frequent basis mixing and mingling you are always going to have differences in way shape or form."
We cannot wait to see what drama unfolds on the show! To learn how Lucas stays in shape and the one food she could eat for the rest of her life (hint: it's not pastries!), Check out the slideshow above.
