Though, we guess he IS synonymous with his orange Crocs — and we get how important branding is! Still, yuck!

For Mario, it's all about comfort (the FOOD is what's important)! The orange is just for flair… but that flair might not last, and not because of Mario's doing!

Orange Crocs are being DISCONTINUED! So, he did what any sane chef would do: he

MArio Batali Settlement

The rules of owning a restaurant are complicated. The rules of owning multiple restaurants are also complicated.

What isn't complicated is knowing that confiscating part of your waiters', captains' and other employees' tips to supplement your profits is not a legal thing to do.

And that's exactly what Mario Batali is in trouble for!

But the good news is — after all these years (since 2004) of getting ripped off on tips and legal filings, Mario Batali has agreed to pay out $5.25 million.

Mario Batali Breaks A Bed On ABC's The Chew

| Filed under: Silly!FoodMario Batali

LOL! That's embarrassing!

While fullfilling his hosting duties on the daytime cooking-themed talk show The Chew, celebrity chef Mario Batali proved he may need to start spending less time in the kitchen and more time in the gym.

In the midst of the entire cast having a food orgasm as they tasted General Tso's chicken, Mario sat on a bed and BROKE IT!

We bet he really hates the internet right now. Thanks to technology, even those who have never and will never watch his show, read his cookbook, or eat his food will forever know him as that chef dude who sat on a bed and broke it on national television.

Or they'll forget this happened before they even go to sleep tonight.

Take a moment out of your busy day to enjoy this classic blooper in the HIGHlarious clip above!
