Who Are The Chew Cast Members, Do They Get Along, Who Died?

Seven seasons and one thousand five hundred episodes after its debut, The Chew cast members were a bag of emotions when they announced in May 2018 that the show was not being picked up for an eighth season. Presented by Carla Hall, Daphne Oz, Clinton Kelly, Michael Symon and Mario Batali who left the show unceremoniously, The Chew brings a party in the kitchen to viewers with each episode where food is the major topic. The cast members basically make viewers see the fun of life through food while discussing cooking-related issues, holidays, gardens, food trucks and every other thing that has to do with food.

There is no doubt it has been a good run for the show but it had to come to an end. The cancellation of The Chew came hot on the heels of Mario Batali’s axing. The host who was arguably the most popular on the show received the ax in December 2017 amid allegations of sexual misconduct. Let’s meet The Chew cast members below.
