Las Vegas — Giada de Laurentiis, Giada
Like Lefebvre, Giada de Laurentiis got her break as a professional chef working in kitchens around Los Angeles. Subsequently, she was hired as a food stylist at the Food Network where she worked her way to a career in front of the camera, hosting specials and, most notably, the show "Giada at Home." De Laurentiis opened her namesake restaurant, Giada, in Las Vegas in 2014.
