The Live with Kelly and Mark cooking segments usually contain good food, laughs, and a recipe without any blood being involved.

Everyone loves watching Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos learn new tricks in the kitchen, and this segment with Chef Eric Ripert promised to be a good one.

This cooking segment with Chef Eric Ripert should have included a warning stating, “Do not do this at home” or something similar after what happened to Mark.

The renowned chef came to teach Kelly and Mark how to make sauces, something Kelly said that Mark was eager to learn.

LIVE airs cooking segments often with Kelly and Mark alongside the rare times their children get to join in as they do at Christmas.

Mark wanted to learn how to make sauces with Eric this time, but things went wrong as he picked up a knife.

Kelly gushed over Mark’s ‘excellent knife skills’ a bit too early

During the segment, Eric wanted Kelly to cut an onion carefully, but she thought Mark might be better since she was worried she’d cut herself.

Eric skillfully demonstrated how to slice safely, sharing with Kelly and Mark that it is an easy task if you take care.

Kelly said that Mark has “excellent knife skills” as Mark pleaded with Eric, “Let me try Chef.”

“Don’t cut yourself, please, because Gelman is looking at me,” Eric said to Mark, mentioning Michael Gelman, the executive producer of LIVE.

Immediately after Eric had warned Mark, the deed was done. Mark pulled his hand back as he cut himself, and Kelly had to ask, “Are you bleeding?”

Mark quipped that he left some nails in the dish.

A Live with Kelly and Mark representative told Entertainment Weekly that Mark “is doing well following the accident and suffered no serious injury.”

Mark shared that he is going to ‘keep talking about sports’

It is no secret that Mark loves his sports, even jetting to Italy to see his soccer team, Campobasso, any weekend he has free.

He was recently on a podcast called The Cooligans. It is run by Alexis Guerreros and Christian Polanco, two men obsessed with soccer.

He shared how well his team is doing and revealed how delighted he is that more men are tuning in to Live with Kelly and Mark. So many are watching for the sports talk that the demographic is changing, revealed Mark.

When he started as co-host, he told the powers in charge, “I’m going to bring sports in,” and that being yourself on the show is essential.

Mark has shown that he is comfortable in the seat next to Kelly and will not be leaving anytime soon.

Live with Kelly and Mark airs weekdays on ABC.

I have a hard time watching Kelly and with hubby on there it’s intolerable to me. What next sine ither relative loses their job and they will also be hosts. U have lost yet another viewer she is silly and he brings s F all to the show. She is bad enuf but he is even more boring. What next their kids will be co hosts. ENUF. Can’t watch this poor excuse for entertainment.

Your crazy!! She’s very funny and so is Mark. It’s a good show for all ages but not necessarily to people with absolutely no sense of humor!

So this absolutely boring and no talent person is calling the shots. Good God get rid of both of them and this painfully boring show.

Why ONLY post glowing comments about the show – if there are any. Show was barely tolerable with just Kelly but with Mark on there – who just can’t get over himself – I absolutely cannot watch this show. The show never was what u could call very or even slightly entertaining but sorry to say it for me is unbearable to watch begat next the kids and their pets taking completely over. Would gladly watch the test pattern instead – would be more entertaining than that sham of a show.

Finally! A cohost that actually makes me want to watch. Michael Strahan did absolutely nothing for me… Ryan Seacrest never seemed comfortable being Ryan, not into cooking, not into exercise segments, and his fashion statements were questionable. Take that any you want.
Mark and Kelly’s banter is fun and silly, they love dogs and for the first time I genuinely like the show!
