no. just no.



otoh, Bobby Moynihan's got a great shot at a new movie.

Really? This is her blog? Her blog must suck.

Why would you do this to yourself?

My husband made the garlic tortilla cake last week after watching an episode w/Guy. I refused to touch it. It looked awful and then I read the ingredients: a cup of oil, 1/4 cup of mayo, 3/4 cup of garlic (recipe specified it should be from a jar). No way in hell I was going anywhere near it OR him. And the kitchen reeked for DAYS.

I don't get this guy's appeal. He's annoying, doesn't seem to show any cooking finesse, and acts like a complete tool. Someone described him as looking like he's playing the Sun in a grade-school play and I can't shake that image.

She's through 3 of 150 recipes. Call me when she hits 50 or more.

Guy Fieri is a great entertainer, but I don't think he knows much about food.

InfamousBLT: Guy Fieri is a great entertainer, but I don't think he knows much about food.


He knows that "_______ IS THE GREATEST ________ I'VE EVER TASTED!!11!1!11" wherever he may be, and whatever he is consuming. That takes years of training.

He knows quite a bit about eating it. Not so sure I would trust him when it comes to preparing it, though.

If you work at Poison Control, she may be calling you a hell of a lot sooner than that.

He looks like someone picked him up by his feet and dipped him head first into a deep fryer.

The first thing I thought when I first saw Guy Fieri on television was "I wonder how many jet skis this guy owns."

This is the cookbook that I intend on working my way through. Mr. Mailman brought to me not too long ago.

First off, he's on Food Network. No matter what the show is about, there will always be a viewership of obese people dreaming about food when they aren't stuffing their face with it. Second, the show is geared toward Boomers who are nostalgic about a history the majority of them never engaged in. Finally, he is the physical embodiedment of this classic TV icon:

Here is SNL's take on him. Pretty accurate.

Also, this:

He actually kinda sounds like a Farker.
 
2012-07-03 01:07:27 PM  
When I see an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives where he tastes something and says "Wow, this tastes horrible. How much money did you pay the asshole who recommended your restaurant for an episode of the show? Thanks for wasting my time." I'll take him seriously.

Did it turn her into a douchebag too?

Food Network was ahead of the troll curve on that one... you don't pick the best cook, you pick the biggest douchebag because that's what brings the ratings.

I can't remember who said this a while back, but it's pretty apt: "Guy Fieri is proof that Ed Hardy has started manufacturing actual human beings".

This guy should have never been put anywhere near fame, or anything resembling fame. I hope those sunglasses spontaneously combust and burn into his skull.

a product. I a few years some one will put on a clip of him and we will all cringe and think, "that is what passed for cool." Those pictures of your parents (grandparents) in bell bottom jeans is what Guy will be in a few years. Just a marketing trend.
 
2012-07-03 01:52:22 PM  
I dont like him but I do ike the places they go to on Diners, Drive ins and Dives.

Some woman cooks some other guys recipes. This should be a news flash.

Why not just ink straight to the blog and not the shiatty write up? Oh, that's right, link spam.

Celebritynetworth.com says he's worth $8.5 MILLION.

More like 'this is what out of touch corporations thought was cool.'

But it will still be a combination of hilarious and regretful.

My mother believes everything she sees on TV. Last time I was up there in Wisconsin, she wanted to go to a breakfast diner in Racine that was featured by some TV chef. It was supposed to be amazing. The food was just OK, but the air was completely saturated with greasy spoon miasma. It latched onto my clothes, and I reeked, yet I had to go directly to the airport to make my flight back home. After we boarded, they discovered that the flight was over-loaded (or something like that) and offered free tickets if someone volunteered to get bumped to the next flight. The guy sitting next to me leaped at the offer like a drowning man grabbing a life ring. I have never been so embarrassed in my life.

2012-07-03 01:59:25 PM  
You know, I am aware he is kind of a douche, but I've been to a restaurant supposedly started by Guy Fieri and while he may not be the cook there apparently he can at least put together a good menu.

/Yes, he still needs to stop trying to be a 23 year old bro.

As someone who has been studying French on and off for almost 20 years (mostly off, until very recently again,) I guess I have a little more respect for him based on that. But he's still annoying.

I would be surprised if they didn't have people go to the places they are thinking of having on the show prior to Fieri visiting and try the food to make sure something like that doesn't happen.

Meh, I stopped watching cooking shows after they canceled "Yan Can Cook". ....they did cancel it right?

Yeah I think he actually does know how to cook and was trained in France. But he was never going to get anywhere with that crap on American television, bring on the gringo sushi. Extra mayo, plz.
 
2012-07-03 02:05:16 PM  
I don't much care for him as a personality, the three recipes in her blog don't give me much faith either, but I've visited an handful of places that have appeared on his show and have not been disappointed. I've found that visiting those establishments is safer than trying to decipher Yelp reviews when I'm stuck in a strange town for a short period of time and don't want to waste a meal based on shady reviews.
 
2012-07-03 02:05:34 PM  
I stopped caring about Food Network after they canceled Molto Mario. Mario Batalli is one of the most pompous motherf*ckers alive, but damn does he know Italian cuisine.

I must have been in the same thread because that same thing happened to me! I kind of see him as the sun in the old Teletubbies shows too.

Really? You're only serious if you're an asshole on TV?
Wouldn't you expect a *serious* person to go, find out the food isn't good and then simply never bring the cameras in, or feature that segment in an episode on-air?

I mean, that's what *I* would expect from someone who was actually more serious about the food than self-aggrandizement.
 
2012-07-03 02:09:30 PM  
Ugh, I hate Guy more so than Bobby Flay. Flay is a NY asshole, Guy is one of those people that ran away to LA to reinvent themselves. BLECH.

I miss the old food network with actual cooking shows. The cooking channel is looking to be a better option now.

Anyone know were I can get David Rosengarden's show?

My favorite tweets from @nedroid on the subject:

Guy Fieri makes another mark on the scroll. 418 marks, one for each year he's been alive. Guy Fieri sighs. He is so tired.

Guy Fieri dons his armor, woven of dancing flames. The serpent-wolf is waiting. "We're rolling out," whispers Guy to his falcon.

Guy Fieri stands at the edge of the abyss and gazes into the great unblinking eye. "Triple D," he says. "Death, Destruction... and Destiny."

Hi, I'm Guy Fieri. I wear my sunglasses on the back of my head to block out the past which is always haunting me.

Hi I'm Guy Fieri. Look at me. Hey. Watch me. Watch me, mom. Mom watch me. Mom you're not watching

Hi, you're Guy Fieri. The mantle has been passed. Finally, I can die.
