Clinton Kelly Didn’t Think ‘The Chew’ Would Make It Through One Season

Call it a lack of confidence or disbelief in how fortunate he is, but Clinton Kelly doesn’t quite understand how he got so lucky. Kelly is co-host of The Chew on ABC, a show entering its fourth season, but one he didn’t believe would have any success.

“Can you believe it?” Kelly told Scott Shannon of the show, which also stars Mario Batali, Carla Hall, Daphne Oz, and Michael Symon. “I got to tell you. I wasn’t sure when that show started that we would make it through a whole season.”

It’s not that Kelly doesn’t believe in the product he and his coworkers are producing; he just doesn’t believe he’s able to do everything he loves and be paid to do it. His thoughts on The Chew pale in comparison to how he saw TLC’s What Not To Wear panning out.

“To be honest with you, I said the same thing about What Not To Wear,” recalls Kelly. “I said, ‘there’s no way this show is going to last. This show is terrible!'” Kelly joined TLC’s longest-running prime time reality show at the start of season two; What Not To Wear came to an end during the Fall of 2013 after 10 seasons.

Kelly, in addition to his television endeavors, has another book available, Freakin’ Fabulous on a Budget, and a tabletop line available through Macy’s called Effortless Table.
