The Real Reason Paris Hilton Wears Gloves For Cooking With Paris

Love watching celebrity chefs cook? What about watching a celebrity-turned-Netflix chef? Recently, Paris Hilton's new Netflix show aired, and you can watch Season 1 of "Cooking With Paris" on the streaming service. With just six episodes that are all under 30 minutes each, you can easily binge-watch this cooking show in a morning or afternoon. Though the famous guests and all the stardom may have caught your eye, there's something else we see throughout the show: Hilton's collection of fashionable gloves.

Paris Hilton rocks a few different pairs of gloves, from long red gloves that go up to her fingertips to playful pink fingerless gloves. In the last episode, "Breakfast in the Clouds with Kim Kardashian West," both Hilton and Kardashian wear what look like your classic blue disposable medical gloves. But why is Paris Hilton always wearing gloves while cooking?

Paris Hilton doesn't want to slice her fingers off

Distractify wrote about why Paris Hilton wears gloves in the kitchen and pulled up a YouTube video where she makes lasagna. In this tutorial, Hilton wears black fingerless gloves, and her explanation for this comes while shredding mozzarella.

"I'm going to get another piece of cheese 'cause I'm scared I'm going to start grinding my fingers off," Hilton said in the YouTube video, also called Cooking with Paris. "That's why I wear my chef gloves. They're usually for sliving but now that it's 2020, you're still going to see sliving, but sliving it in a different way."

Distractify notes that "sliving" is a term Hilton came up with that combines the ideas of slaying and living your best life, which she revealed in an interview with E!. Making sure you don't have any cuts on your fingers certainly does sound like living your best life in the kitchen, and of course, you get the added benefit of looking your very best and making a statement.

Though we might not always wear bedazzled fingerless gloves in the kitchen like Hilton, there are some situations where having a pair of gloves on hand is essential. For example, here's why you should always be wearing gloves when cleaning with Bar Keepers Friend.
