Top Chef presenter, enlighten me

I know the sticky says not to bash TV hosts but this is a sincere question.
I don't live in USA but we do get Top Chef in my country and I love it. You're so lucky to get the food TV you do. Anyway. what I don't get is why the programme's presenter is there? She's really wooden and from what she says it doesn't seem like she has any particular expertise in food. Not that she says much anyway. Then I read her wikipedia entry and it seems like she's written some cookbooks. Ok. But as someone who has no idea about American TV, celebrities, food scene, etc. it's totally baffling that she's there. Is there something I'm missing, something I don't know about her, is she really popular in America, has she done other TV shows?
