Why Viewers Are Loving Paris Hilton’s New Show

Paris Hilton is back in the reality scene with her very own show, Cooking with Paris. This quirky series shows off her unique sensibility and recipes.

In order to understand why Cooking With Paris is actually hilarious, the first thing people need to realize is that Paris Hilton is in on the joke (and no, she isn’t actually cooking food that most people want to eat). The reality show follows Paris as she showcases her lack of expertise in the kitchen. Fans also see her picking up the ingredients she needs, being confused about what a whisk is, and sharing the culinary chaos with many celebrity guests. Cooking With Paris dropped on Netflix and it did get some criticism, but many of her fans love it.

Noughties nostalgia has taken over social media feeds just in time for early aughts reality TV darling Paris Hilton to return to screens with her new Netflix show Cooking With Paris.

Paris Hilton Hosts New Netflix Cooking Show

Netflix has released the official trailer for the upcoming Cooking with Paris series, but from the first few seconds, it’s clear this will not be a typical cooking show where the audience might learn how to prepare various dishes. Indeed, American socialite and businesswoman Paris Hilton is not by any means a trained chef, nor does she claim to be one. Cooking with Paris will launch all six episodes August 4 on Netflix.

The initial tone of the trailer is evocative of a 50’s cooking show and it makes no attempt in hiding its satirical quality. While we may not end up learning too much about the culinary arts, executive producers Aaron Saidman, Eli Holzman, Rebecca Hertz, as well as Hilton herself, will nevertheless have a delightfully funny experience in store for us. As the trailer mentions, this show will present Hilton in a setting “as you’ve never seen
