Baro and Tak Jae Hoon were the featured guests on the show, which revolves around chefs competing and cooking with ingredients from celebrities' refrigerators. The B1A4 member was very honest about his picky eating habits. As one chef was making something fried for Baro, he spoke up, saying, "I don't like crunchy textures. I like soggy." Tak Jae Hoon commented, "For a young person, you're hard to please."

When the dishes were completed and placed in front of Baro, he picked up a piece of food and teased Tak Jae Hoon with it. Some viewers found this disrespectful as Tak Jae Hoon is 24 years older than the idol star. 

A PD from 'Please Take Care of My Refrigerator' stated on July 5, "Baro was very clear to the chefs about his tastes. There was no one uncomfortable with this on set. The chefs didn't think Baro's words were too much either. The filming was harmonious. If some viewers were uncomfortable with how precise he was about his personal tastes, then we think that's the fault of the producers. We did not think he would be seen in that manner and would have given it more thought before filming. We're disappointed there was this response."

What are your thoughts on this supposed controversy?

If Baro didn't eat it because the texture was wrong... knetz complain. When he tries to prevent that by being very precise about how he wants his food to professional chefs who are ANYWAY expected to please tasters as their profession knetz complain. Will you ever be happy?!???

Oh gosh. Celebrities can't even be themselves cuz people judge too much TTThis is so frustrating...

Lol. Knets, can u eat food that you dislike. Baro is very unlike your idols who will do everything to gain fame.

isn't it common when to let chefs know how you want your food to be cooked?

cityhunter123 Tuesday, July 5, 2016

whats wrong with letting people know your preferences...

They're chefs, they are used to hearing about their customer's preferences. The PD even said that he didn't seem too harsh throughout the filming. This is what cooking shows are like. Teasing a senior, sometimes you do that to lighten the mood or make the show a bit more entertaining.

retarded as usual.... because its NO big deal!!

I am giving my own opinions because I HAVE watched the broadcast, and honestly I think he was a little disrespectful to the chefs. In the beginning he actually told the hosts that he wasnt a picky eater at all, but during the competition, he started to point out the kinds of food that he did not like when the chefs are already in the midst of cooking... and he said something like '(the chef) put in all the ingredients that I dont like'. I mean i think he should be more open minded and maybe judge the dishes after they are completed or at least tell them beforehand... i know he wasnt being serious but maybe he could have been more careful with his words

But the part about him teasing his senior i honestly dont see a problem

The producers said he discussed it with them before hand so most likely they either didn't inform the chefs or the chefs decided to provoke a response to make things interesting. I understand his preference for certain textures there are actual sensory eating issues for some people. Not enough to need medical or therapy based help but enough that some foods are either unappealing or just downright unedible because of the texture. I myself cannot eat anything that has a slimy texture because it triggers my gag reflex no matter how lovely it tastes. Pudding is the closest to that texture I can eat.

Haters should get a life, really. It's kinda unbelievable how they can create a controversy from strictly nothing.
