Since President Barack Obama took office, his family have given the public a warm insight into the life of the US First Family.
Michelle is now taking their openness a step further with an appearance on reality cooking contest, Iron Chef America.
Becoming the first presidential wife to grace a reality TV show, her episode has been filmed in the White House kitchen, and shows her using ingredients from her own vegetable patch.
The mum-of-two has taken part in the show to promote her healthy living campaign, and the importance of children eating vegetables.
The panel of judges on the programme - which is due to hit screens in the New Year - includes top British chef Nigella Lawson, and actress Jane Seymour.
