The Reason Rachael Ray Thinks Her Show Is Successful

Celebrity cook Rachael Ray is one of the best-known faces in the culinary industry. As reported by ABC News, the star has always been someone who likes to keep her hands full, instead of taking things easy. She once said, "This is a lovely life where you're afforded the opportunity to chat and cook — two things that I would do to relax," before adding, "Who cares when you get home? I'm lucky enough to do the stuff that I would normally be doing to relax from a real job."

Ray is not only highly passionate about her job, she's also someone who has seen tough times. Her parents separated when she was in her early teen years, per Good Housekeeping, and she grew up watching her mom work very hard to raise her and her siblings.

As a person, Ray is also very self-aware and thinks she knows what has made her show so successful. Here's what you need to know about her.

It's easy to relate to Rachael Ray

The thing about Rachael Ray is that her life experiences have made her really likable as a person. She's not uptight or difficult to understand. In fact, in 2015, Ray told the Food Network something very endearing and honest. She said, "I don't really know anything, and I think that that's what makes our shows popular, you know?" She also emphasized that she is careful about being as genuine as she can be on the job. Plus, she acknowledged it's always a learning process.

Well, viewers seem to agree with this and are especially drawn to the fact that Ray is humble and down-to-earth, despite achieving so much in her career. A Reddit user praised the chef's personality and wrote, "I adore her shows. I really liked her travel show, $40 a day. She seems like someone who would be fun to hang out with."
