Why viewers think Paris Hilton’s new show is a joke
Paris Hilton’s Cooking With Paris Netflix show has created some buzz online. While some fans are here for it, others think it’s a complete joke.
Paris Hilton’s new show Cooking with Paris recently debuted on Netflix and is receiving mixed reviews. While the Unique Cooking Show has received positive reviews from fans, others are confused about the show and think it’s a complete joke. Inspired by the 2020 viral YouTube video of her lasagna making, the six-part series follows Paris as she attempts to cook a range of dishes she only half knows how to make. According to the show’s biography on Netflix, “With an anyone can cook attitude, Paris Hilton adds her own touch to every dish.” Each episode features her famous friends and family like Kim Kardashian, Saweetie, Demi Lovato and Kathy and Nicky Hilton as the sous chef. The insufficient cuisine of Paris is expressed in the show. However, her lack of cooking skills and her misadventures left some fans confused and slamming the heiress.
Paris became a reality TV star in the early 2000s when she starred in Simple life with her best friend, Nicole Richie. The show followed Paris and Nicole’s journey across the country as they struggled to do manual and low-paying jobs. The two have amassed a huge following and have become some of the most talked about celebrities in the world. Paris has become a cultural icon by flaunting its rich lifestyle, partying and popularizing its slogan, “It’s hot. ” The popularity of Paris increased, but so did the hatred for it. She has been criticized for being stupid and dumb and for using a baby voice.
It wasn’t until his YouTube documentary which premiered in 2020 called It’s Paris revealed that her dizzy character and baby voice had all been an act. The documentary showed another side of the heiress that no one had seen before. While discussing some of the traumas she experienced in her life, Paris was vulnerable, honest, and fans felt for her. In the documentary, it looked like the heiress was ready to move on from that old characterization. However, in Cooking with Paris, some fans believe that Paris has reverted to her old tasteless persona and started playing the same distraught act that she has carried out throughout her career.
Cooking with Paris is similar to Simple life in a few ways. Instead of traveling across the country with no idea and no contact with reality, Paris has no idea in its own kitchen. She has no idea what certain devices like a blender or tongs are, nor does she know how to use certain devices. She also wanders around the grocery store, asking the store clerks for help trying to find ingredients while mispronouncing her name. For example, she didn’t know how to pronounce “tomatillo”, “cotija” and different people put a lot of effort into pronouncing them correctly. She had no idea what chives were and asked the store clerk, “What am I supposed to do with them?” Some fans believe the 40-year-old is too old to act the same way she did 17 years ago when she Simple life days. Reddit user AD480 said in part: “She’s really stuck in a time chain and hasn’t matured at all.” Another Reddit user named Lookalikemike said: “Isn’t it time for her to stop making fun of herself?”
While some viewers think the clueless Paris trope is old and outdated, others love the show. Supporters of the show appreciate his silliness and admit that Paris owns the joke. They appreciate the lightness of the spectacle and recognize that Paris is not to be taken seriously. Reddit user Nelson64 loved the show and said: “People who don’t ‘get’, don’t understand that Paris Hilton is playing a caricature of herself all the time. It’s completely satirical and shouldn’t be taken seriously.” Paris also said that she is not a skilled chef or even a superb home cook, and she is not trying to be. She wanted to expand her culinary repertoire, and the show is for fun. The cooking show is an elaborate joke, and Paris is part of the gag.
Paris brought back a lot of nostalgic memories, silly moments and couture in Cooking with Paris. Some fans love the show in its truest form, and others think it should be more mature. Paris’ return to reality TV has certainly become a hot topic, and she’s proving she’s here to stay.
