In an Instagram post, Anthony harped on his career as a chef, showing photos of him from the past and present. In the caption, he wrote: "Work to become, not to acquire. Despite the challenges of being a chef, I always persevere because it allows me to express my love for food, unleash my creativity, tackle culinary challenges, and most importantly, find satisfaction in nourishing others."

Anthony Bar was also on Hulu's 'Secret Chef.'

Prior to his stint on Vanderpump Villa, Anthony Bar made a brief appearance on another Hulu reality series: Secret Chef ! The show, which debuted on the platform in 2023, features 10 chefs who rate each other's dishes anonymously, effectively eliminating the need for actual judges. The identities of the chefs remain concealed throughout the show, with food being the only topic of discussion. Unfortunately, Anthony was eliminated in the first episode.

Is Anthony Bar dating anyone?

Anthony is not currently believed to be in a relationship, as details about his private life are scarce. But when it comes to sharing details about his latest mouthwatering dishes, the culinary king does not shy away, as his Instagram page is brimming with food photos.

In his Vanderpump Villa bio, Anthony is noted as a "perfectionist" who often puts work before his personal life. Furthermore, "food is his passion, and he allows nothing to stand in the way of delivering a perfect dining experience."
