[Blind Gossip] We’ve posted lots of interesting blind items in the past about celebrities in restaurants.
This one is just… odd.
How do you eat spaghetti?
Do you use a fork? A fork and a knife? A fork and a spoon (to help with your twirling)?
Well, our tipster had the good fortune of dining in an Italian restaurant – in Italy – in the past couple of months (this was before much of Italy went into lockdown).
They had the even greater luck of being in the restaurant the same time as a huge celebrity. What a kick!
This man is one of the most famous athletes in the world.
Due to his good looks and international appeal, he is not only a great athlete, but a highly-paid endorsement magnet as well.
Our tipster noticed something interesting.
He had a big plate of spaghetti in front of him. He ate the entire bowl of spaghetti… using a spoon!
ONLY a spoon!
These weren’t Spaghetti-Os. This was a big plate of traditional, long-strand Italian spaghetti.
Yes, we have a photo… and you’ll see it when we SOLVE this one later this week!

Athlete: Cristiano Ronaldo
Are you familiar with Cristiano Ronaldo?
He is one of the most famous athletes in the world!
He is also really good looking.
Like, really, really, really, ridiculously good looking.
Ronaldo plays professional soccer for the Serie A club Juventus. He is also the captain of the Portuguese national team.
Cristiano Ronaldo was born and raised in Portugal, and travels all over Europe playing soccer. His team, Juventus, is based in Italy.
The restaurant in this blind item is located near Allianz Stadium (a.k.a. Juventus Stadium) in Turin. Ronaldo was at the restaurant in mid-February with some of his team mates.
Given that his team is based in Italy, you would think that he would know how to eat pasta.
Yet, here he is. Eating spaghetti. Using a spoon.
Yes, he ate the entire bowl of spaghetti using ONLY a spoon. He would cut the pasta with the side of the spoon and then scoop up the tiny bits with the spoon and eat it.
WHAT KIND OF MADNESS IS THIS?!?
Thank you to the Blind Gossip reader who was there, snapped the photo, and gave us a bite by bite replay of the event!
At least we don’t have to worry about that big bowl of pasta ruining Cristiano’s figure!
Let’s ALL eat spaghetti today!
With a spoon!
Congratulations to JipJip for being first with the correct response!
Let’s talk about something fun! If you were to travel to Italy, what are the top three things you would want to do?
He’s too handsome to be wrong. At least about this.
I’d go to Venice, Rome, and Florence.
I think it’s endearing when someone has their own little quirk. It actually makes him more attractive, in my opinion!
There’s so much is love to see in Italy, so many cities. It would be ideal if I could go there for 3 months or more ( after covid is a thing of the past)
Okay. One question. He can eat whatever way he wants but HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU EAT SPAGHETTI with a spoon? Honestly, HOW? I’d love to see more than this starting shot. Sounds IMPOSSIBLE to me lol.
Well, maybe he was just concerned about hid
s white jersey?
Eating Spaghetti the traditional way usually causes collateral damage aka tomato sauce stains….
My family always called them ‘buttons’ aka ‘Italian buttons’.
If I could walk decently again, I’d love to visit the island of Murano, where they makes world-famous glass. Then I’d love to return to Venice during Carnivale, their version of the Mardi Gras. Peoples’ costumes are exquisite! And the men dress up in Renaissance outfits and run while pushing women in wheel barrows. Then I’d want to visit the Italian Riviera, sampling the food and strolling through the gorgeous walking paths.
How’s that Kool-Aid? Yummy!
Most people are decent humans that realize you are highly contagious if asymptomatic. I’m not immunocompromised, but I certainly don’t want to be a walking carrier of a disease I could easily pass on to a person in a more precarious situation. Look at the St. Louis case where a family in quarantine thought rules didn’t apply to them and broke quarantine possibly compromising an entire event. What if my older mother came over when I didn’t know I was sick? We all have a duty to protect each other
The mortality rate of the flue is NOT way higher – it’s about 1% whereas covid 19 has more than a 3% mortality rate. Apparently you are not doing much research.
Haha, the idea of a big, strong athlete eating Spaghettios (or spaghetti) with a spoon is hilarious! It’s more Sheldon Cooper than Mike Tyson.
My guess: Aaron Rodgers
It would be funny if it were Tom Brady!
No, I haven’t changed a thing. I always use hand sanitizer anyway and there are more cases of influenza each year that kill many more thousands than what is happening now. It seems more of a hyped up crisis to panic people for whatever reason. People who are elderly with chronic medical issues never fare well in the face of any upper respiratory illness. Pneumonia is Mother Nature’s way of killing old people. We will all have to face that eventually.
What a HORRIBLE thing to say that pneumonia is nature’s way of killing old people. WOW. You are one sick-o freak.
I Am PunkA says
Cristiano Ronaldo. Cuz we all know he’d rather spoon than fork.
I feel like that’s the only reason this one would be solved in a week
How?? can’t wait to see the pic :o)
I haven’t changed a single thing. I already wash my hands and cover my mouth when I cough and sneeze.
Haven’t changed anything for this flu vs any other flu except that I look at the live map every day to see how quickly it spreads. I’d like to see other illnesses on a live map…like specific cancers.
Yay! It’s that A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. player Ronaldo! Seriously everyone, look up videos of his skills. Even if you don’t care or know not much about soccer, he is just outstanding! He is a maestro! As for his spaghetti eating, no worries, he’s a soccer God. Eat it with a toothpick for all I care.
No clue, and no, I didn’t changed anything. And considering how many people did their break in Italy in February it’s probably everywhere in Europe, and most people didn’t noticed it, or only had cough and are ok, so nobody tested them, so I don’t believe in zombi apocalypse coming soon…
Guessing at Ronaldo.
I’m laughing at all the people stockpiling toilet rolls…🤣
Common sense should prevail…wash your hands before touching your face. Don’t have close contact with people you don’t know.
It is driving me nuts! I legitimately needed toilet paper and I had to go to four different stores before I could find some! And I’m a teacher and I can’t get disinfectant wipes or hand sanitizer which I use even without the threat of Coronavirus!
Tim Tebow was recently in Italy for Night to Shine with his wife. He might have gone off his keto diet and forgotten how to properly eat pasta.
A little. I take my vitamins – D3, zinc, and C’s.
And I skipped going to Costco last week because of all the panic buying.
My guy said – eat bruchetta along a river in Tuscany. He had a foodie moment eating REAL bruchetta in Italy. It was magical. He thought he knew the dish until one was bite of the real stuff was something SPECIAL.
Currently in Italy with Italian club Juventus.
I was actually thinking of Italy for a summer holiday this year, but think I’ll give it a miss now. Probably have a staycation instead.
No idea who this not too savvy athlete is, but he sure ain’t Italian!
I’m not flying anywhere right now, thank goodness. But I am avoiding crowds.
David Beckham ? No I have always used a sanitizer and any eatery I go in I check out the help. Some of the cheaper ones can get a meth or crackhead server . If I spot one ( Yes I am streetwise ). I walk out politely saying something like “ Sorry I didn’t bring enough money “ which translates to “ Your skank ass ain’t touching my food !” I am not paranoid about Corona but I would steer clear of a hot zone
This must be David Beckham or Christian Rolando.
I hoarded everything on Amazon about two weeks ago, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, several cases of rice-a-roni and spaghettios and soup as well as sanitizing spray. I figure if nothing comes of the virus, we’ll just have a lot of supplies if there is an earthquake in L.A.
Either Beckham or Ronaldo.
I don’t travel that much so nothing’s changed there. Everyday life is the same. I’m being cautious, but not panicking like so many other people. My mom’s a nurse so I’ve always known to wash my hands real well and frequently. I also was taught the polite ways to sneeze and cough so you don’t spread your germs. Astounding to me that so many don’t do these things on a normal basis and need a pandemic to learn them.
Cristiano Ronaldo or David Beckham
