Yay! More raccoon eyes for everyone as he gets to ride around with the top down all the time with shades on.

He's a complete asshole. A local artsweekly had a good expose on him:

"You have to protect Guy from all of his poop jokes," Page says. "Anytime any woman mentioned 'cream,' Guy went into a sexual riff. When cutting the show, you had to tell the editors to watch Guy's eye line, because it's always on breasts."

Fieri also needed protection from homosexuals, or at least advance warning. Early in the show's run, Page got a phone call from Fieri, who'd just walked out of a restaurant in a huff.

"Guy had decided that the two men running the restaurant were life partners," Page remembers. "He said, 'You can't send me to talk to gay people without warning! Those people weird me out!'"

"Chef?"

Drives a Lamborghini huh? Jesus dude, you're a walking stereotype.

What's wrong with a Lamborghini? They're sweet lookin' cars. I'd drive a Lamborghini. Actually, I'd probably just sell it because I need the money.

Yeah, they misspelled "food taster/fatass".

Inherently nothing, but if I took one look at Guy Fieri and was asked what kind of car that d-bag looking guy drove, I would say Lamborghini without thinking twice.

I'd probably guess the same. But I can't bring myself to dislike this guy. He seems a bit silly to me, but I'm more neutral to his personality.

I just can't figure out why he hasn't noticed his foolish looking sunglasses tan line!

I can't look at his name without seeing Gay Fiero.
 
2012-05-01 10:11:40 AM  
And another thing! Why does he pronounce his last name 'Fieddi?' Or am I just not hearing it right?
 
2012-05-01 10:19:19 AM  
Why all the Guy hate? He's got a dumb little foodie show that is pretty entertaining. Granted he waxes a little too enthusiastic, uses the same adjectives over and over (That's Killer!) and never met a pile of grease he didn't like, but he seems fun enough to me.

I'm just surprised about the lamborgo. He drives a sweet little muscle car in the intro to his show, Camero, I think.

His real name is Guy Ramsay Ferry. No, his real name is not Fieri, it's Ferry. It was legally changed to "Fieri" in 1995.


From the same article:
Guy describes his bleached, spiky hair look as "kulinary gangsta". Don't believe me? Think your blonde haired chef buddy is way too awesome to ever utter the words "kulinary gangsta"? Well, fortunately Guy had it tattooed on his forearm. Observe:

2012-05-01 10:20:54 AM  
I wonder how much MONEY he spent on that car.

And for security, he probably should have kept it chained up. I know it's a lot of work to take OFF THE CHAIN, but that would prevent his car from being stolen.

MrBallou: he waxes a little too enthusiastic, uses the same adjectives over and over


Interestingly, that's exactly why I don't watch his shows.
 
2012-05-01 10:32:04 AM  
In person he's kind of a tool. He seems like an overgrown dudebro frat boy.

Yeah, me too. My daughter is a dedicated foodie, but she finds him too repetitive, and she's 7.

Your disgust-zone is comfortably narrow. Must be nice.

I'm not a fan of Fieri, so I turn the channel.

The rest of you should probably get some couchwork done.
 
2012-05-01 10:56:04 AM  
He came to a show I was promoting and demanded to be let in for free using the "Don't you know who I am?" line. When I told him I didn't have a clue who he was, he stormed out in a huff and yelled at his 'people' in the parking lot for 5 minutes before they go in a car and drove off.

Complete tool...
 
2012-05-01 10:57:37 AM  
So, I guess from now on the joke should be "What's the difference between a Lamborghini and a porcupine"?
 
2012-05-01 10:58:37 AM  
Oh, and although I am not a fan of his or his show, I do look up the joints he goes to online so I can try new stuff when I travel for work.

Is there a Lamborghini owner alive in the world today with any signs of humility?

If you didn't know who he was, you'd probably assume he couldn't afford a Lamborghini.

Guys like Guy usually drive an old Chrysler and talk about how someday they're going to restore the beat up old Mustang that lives in their garage.

That's not the female Fieri. Nadia G is the female Fieri.

/Biatchin Kitchen is the only show worse than Guy's show

I put this guy in the same catagory as the biatchin Kitchen or whatever it is. Could there be something interesting on these shows? Who knows, they're trying so damned hard to shovel excessive faux personality in by the boatload that I can't stand watching them for more than 2 minutes.
 
2012-05-01 12:35:19 PM  
I don't like him, but I like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
 
2012-05-01 12:37:28 PM  
I used to live in Santa Rosa when he opened up Tex Wasabi's ... both TW and Johnny Garlic's were only worth visiting for drinks.

/Would always go to the Chines restaurant across from Johnny Garlic's for lunch, instead.

Anyone remember when the Food Network had actual shows about cooking? With recipes and such?
 
2012-05-01 12:39:22 PM  
This thread was enlightening. I never realized there was this much hate for the guy. I cook, so if i'm passing by his show I may watch for a few minutes if something seems interesting. Yeah, granted, he looks like an idiot, but I always assumed it was just a tv act. Never really heard anything about him off the show.

Yes, you know his (deceased) sister is gay, his boss is gay, and HE RUNS TWO SUCCESSFUL RESTAURANTS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA?

This was a complete hit piece orchestrated by David Page who was bitter because he was fired. Don't believe the hype. At all.

Those days are long gone, my friend. At least or evening television. They still have cooking shows with recipes on during morning / early afternoon.

You do understand that intelligence follows a bell curve. It makes sense that lowest common denominator programming might have more viewers.

Not that I would automatically hate everything, but on a business trip to Memphis my boss insisted on going to a place that Douchey McSpikehair loved on DD&D. They made hamburgers with patties that were deep fried in grease. In retrospect, I would rather eat the asshole out of a dead mule than go there again.

The article does seem pretty one sided.

But belive what you like and watch what you like.

And those of you talking bad about Nadia G can EABOD.

People hate Fieri for the same reason they "hate" Nickleback. It's "cool" to hate something, but when pressed for reasons, they either have nothing or come up with superfluous reasons that are objective at best.

I like Fieri's show, and I know he's a goof. But once you understand this, it's a cool look at kitchens at successful restaurants. It's the flip side of "Restaurant Impossible".

I mean, the whole concept of "Restaurant Impossible" is flawed. The entire time aspect is stupid. You ONLY have 48 hours? No, you don't. That restaurant wasn't making any money before, you can close it for a lot longer than 48 hours to get the job done right.

Notice how that article came out MONTHS ago and didn't go anywhere, even though we live in a culture that loves destroying celebrities?

It's because everyone - even the tabloids - knew it was a completely biased hit piece that was from the claims of one man, and a co-worker who sided with him - with NO TANGIBLE EVIDENCE to back up his claims.

Plus, the guy had plenty of reason to go after Food Network and Fieri, and had nothing to lose.
