Chef Academy’s Emmanuel DelCour is porn star Jean Val Jean

Bravo tells us on-screen that Chef Academy cast member Emmanuel DelCour is a “graphic artist,” and on its web site says he “has acted in commercials and television series and worked as a personal trainer” and “enjoys swimming cage free with Great White Sharks, drawing and graphic design.”

But guess what else he likes to do? Let’s turn to always-reliable Wikipedia’s entry for Jean Val Jean, who’s “the premier straight porn practitioner of analingus on female co-stars.” They are the same person, according to IMDB’s entry for Emmanuel, which details his TV work (most notably an appearance on CSI) and puts his previous career more gracefully, saying he “made a successful cross-over from modeling in straight adult entertainment.”

The show will apparently address this–the season preview shows one of the cast members looking at a computer and saying, “one of our guys is a porn star”–but for now, Dudetube has NSFW screen captures that show “Emmanuel DelCour was prolific straight porn star Jean Val Jean in his past life.” has info about Val Jean’s career and clips like one in which he describes how the French determine perfect breast size.

Yes, it appears another reality star has a porn past, although he may also have a reality TV past, too: As this Adult DVD Talk forum discussion reports, he appeared on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians called “Khloe Wants to Act.” Here’s the scene, in which she takes an acting class and does a scene with him, and he “stuck his tongue down [Khloe’s] throat,” Khloe said. That may be more embarrassing than these photos.

At least this is all a lot more interesting than Chef Academy.
