Robert Earl "Bobby" Deen (born April 28, 1970) is a television cook, TV personality, and restaurant manager.[1] He is the second son of Paula Deen and with his brother, Jamie, operates her restaurant, The Lady & Sons, in Savannah, Georgia. He also frequently appears on her shows, Paula's Home Cooking and Paula's Party. He and Jamie had their own show, Road Tasted, starting July 11, 2006. The Deen brothers eventually decided that they wanted to devote more time to their family restaurant, and thus did not continue on as hosts of Road Tasted. The original show has since been changed into Road Tasted with the Neelys featuring Food Network hosts Pat Neely and Gina Neely.

In 2006, Deen was named one of the "50 Most Eligible Bachelors" by People Magazine.[2] Bobby announced his engagement to Claudia Lovera on April 24, 2013 and discussed the event on the Fox News morning show, Fox & Friends.[3][4] In July 2013, Bobby married his fiancée Claudia Lovera at a ceremony at his mother Paula Deen's House.[5]

In January 2012, he debuted his own cooking show, Not My Mama's Meals, on the Cooking Channel, in which he tweaks his mother's recipes to recreate them in a healthier manner.[6]

In November 9, 2014, he is the host for the festive show, Holiday Baking Championship. He is also co-host of the Cooking Channel series Junk Food Flip, where he goes to restaurants around the USA, and makes healthier versions of their unhealthy food. He is also the host of the 2015 special, called Spring Baking Championship on the Food Network.

In April, 2015, Bobby and his brother Jamie began filming the TV show Southern Fried Road Trip for the Food Network, "in search of the best local, handcrafted foods".
