Regis Philbin May Have Been America's Goofiest TV Chef (VIDEO)

Was Regis Philbin America's first TV chef? No, but he was perhaps the goofiest man to ever attempt to cook something in a TV kitchen. 'Live' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) continued the Philbin Farewell Tour on Friday with a look back at Regis' most memorable culinary moments, which included him rescuing a Playboy bunny and smooching Gwyneth Paltrow.

The highlight of the montage came during a cooking segment with a Playboy bunny. When a small grease-fire broke out, sending smoking billowing from the stove, Regis sprang into action, picking up the model and yelling, "Save the bunny, save the bunny!" This is the moment Regis proved himself to be an American hero.

But there was more to the cooking montage than shenanigans. Regis' wife Joy also made an appearance, cooking for Regis as he massaged her shoulders. When they cut back to the present, Regis and Joy were eating at a table, where they were surprised by Dino Palermo, who serenaded the couple. "When you move on, I hope you'll remember me," Joy adorably told her husband.
