Amanda Freitag is known being the judge on Chopped and the co-host of American Diner Revival. She owns the title of America’s Next Iron Chef since 2009 and also appears as a guest on Food Network television.
When it comes to profession and career there is nothing to raise suspicions, and all the information is clear in this field, but when it comes to Amanda Freitag married life, husband and personal life, there is a lot of question marks. But we do know about her net worth.
Is Chef Amanda Freitag married to a husband?
Amanda Freitag has managed to keep her private life out of the spotlights, and she doesn’t speak about this topic in media and public. There is no information about marriage or divorce until now, and most records found her single and focused on her work. Despite her growing age, she still seems to be not married without a husband, or at least she hasn’t revealed anything about her married life, so that is our best guess.
Is hard for us to believe that being so beautiful and knowing to cook so well, at 45 years old she is still single, but who knows? Maybe she will soon be getting public about the husband or about this part of her life that is so intriguing.
Boyfriend and dating history
Apparently, Amanda Freitag’s life is about only one thing: food. There is no information about relationships, husband, married life or even boyfriends from her past.
Even if the current status is most probably single since she is a public figure she was associated with different men. Some rumors said that she is in a relationship for six years with an Ultrasound Technician, Raphael and they were seen traveling together several times.
Then, after she posted more pictures with the same person, Gregory Alan all the media started to question, if they are really in a relationship. They seemed closer in all the posted pictures, and we can suppose a great story between them, but they mentioned themselves just being friends.
With so less information about the men in Amanda’s life, no wonder that some people also question about her sexuality. She has not made a return statement on this matter, and this rumor doesn’t seem to affect her.
Amanda Freitag net worth and source of income
There is no wonder that Amanda Freitag is a great chef, but her profession is not the main source of income. In 2010, after one year from her first apparition on “Chopped”, she gave up being a chef for her appearances in TV shows.
Her estimated net worth is around $3 million and seemed to be earned being host and judge in different TV shows as “Chopped”, “Unique Eats” and “The Next Iron Chef.” In 2015 she started her TV show “The Kitchen” and the most recent one is “American Dinner revival” with Ty Pennington.
Amanda grew up along with her two brothers, Jason and Justin Freitag. Their parents were busy, Cathleen (her mother) being a manager to Verizon and Paul (her father) working for a computer company, so Amanda and her brothers were often forced to eat frozen food, and this was one of the reasons that made her learn how to cook.
Career and profession
She attended Cedar Grove High School(then known as Memorial High School) and here is when her passion for food started. From her grandparents to economics teacher, all encouraged and suggested her to pursue a cooking career and to attend the Culinary Institute of America.After her graduation in 1989, she took a rotisserie position at Vong New York.

In 2008, Amanda took the executive chef position at The Harrison.
Since 2009 Amanda is a frequent judge on the culinary game show “Chopped,” and from first TV apparition, she discovered a new career and began to attend different TV shows. She started to gain popularity from competing in The Next Iron Chef and Iron Chef America.
In 2014 she came back in restaurants field as an executive chef at the Empire Diner in Manhattan, but she left in 2015 when with Ty Pennington began hosting the Food Network series “American Diner Revival.
