Food Networks’ Raid the Fridge wouldn’t have been the same without its host Dan Ahdoot and his hilarious commentaries. You might have seen the actor/comedian working his magic encouraging the contestants but at the same time gently approving of judges’ harsh decisions.
But how much do you know about his romantic life? Is he married or is he still enjoying the dating game? And what’s his net worth and height? Find answers as you scroll down.
Is Dan Ahdoot Married Or Dating?
No, Dan Ahdoot wasn’t married, and also he didn’t seem like he was dating anyone as of 2021. However, he was once engaged to a lady named Vikky Krinsky.
It was 2015 when Dan Ahdoot first revealed Vikky Krinsky as his girlfriend over a Tweet. Well, though indirectly, he wrote to the pastry chef Alanna TT that he and his girlfriend Vikky were huge fans and they had a “question/favor to ask.”
Flash forward to August 2016, the couple were already engaged and undoubtedly at the peak of their relationship.
Also, the next year, the lovebirds were doing great. Moreover, at the time, Vikky shared in an interview that besides “inspiring people around the world to look at food and cooking in a very positive way,” her plan included “getting married to (her) love, Dan Ahdoot.”
The pair never appeared together then after. Guess, it might be safe to say that the two went their separate ways as there isn’t a single post of the other on their respective socials.
As for when their relationship started, we guess that it was after 2013. Well, before that he was still looking for a girlfriend. One of Dan’s Feb 2013 tweets wrote, “That’s it. I’m done with online dating. Gonna do this the old-fashioned way. Does anyone know anyone I can bone?”
Also, it was in May 2012, when the comedian joined the online dating game. He joked his profile name was “Who wants some of this i-Cock!”

Talking a little about his fiancee, Vikky Krinsky is a chef who owns the nutritious VK Energy Bar. Also, this beautiful lady is an actor who debuted as “Shelby Derouche” on the hit Canadian television series Edgemont (2003). She then also went on to play as “Taylor Woodall” on Lifetime’s Wild Card.

What Do We Know About Dan Ahdoot’s Parents?
Dan’s parents are Iranian immigrants who often made it into Dan’s tweets and jokes. Some of the jokes Dan did about his parents were — Google and Persian moms wonder the same thing; a Persian woman is heckling me from the front row. It’s like my mother is here; My dad flirted with a transvestite in my elevator. I told him it was a dude, and he went and washed his hands.
Overall, Dan says that his parents were the cool ones. They are now supportive of his career and also have appeared a few times over his events.
However, it wasn’t always like this. Given they were immigrants aspiring to live the American dream, they wanted Dan to become a doctor. So, they sent him to Johns Hopkins and paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for it. And then, Dan decided to become a comedian.
Also, Dan shares that they are “somewhat in denial” about his involvement in religion. “My mom still thinks that I keep kosher in the house, which is not true. She doesn’t want to admit to it,” he says.
