You can see by browsing chef Michael Symon’s social media feeds that he has a very engaged following, especially when Symon posts a selfie on Instagram. He recently shared the results of a Instagram stories survey (pictured above), where he asked fans if he should grow out his beard. 81% of his fans said they didn’t want it to get any bigger. And some people have written in the comments that they want to see it go. But Symon begs to differ. “Well it’s now obvious…ZZ TOP it is,” he wrote in the caption.
Another fan agreed with Symon and commented, “Yes!!! Those are definitely beard goals.” Other fans supported Symon, beard or no beard. “Whatever makes you happy! Love you no matter what,” @kalyha commented. One commenter made a solid point, but in a semi-crude way. “If you do, it will be difficult to eat cottage cheese,” they observed. While not the most appetizing visual, they make a good point since all of Symon’s job is to eat or cook in front of the camera. Whatever the chef decides to do, we’re sure he won’t hesitate to share it with us on social media. So stay tuned for the next episode of the Symon Beard Chronicles.
