“You have to protect Guy from all of his poop jokes. 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!'”
Man, if that’s true? Gross. Is it true? Fieri says that parts of the article include “total fabrications,” but, like, look at the guy. Can you see him? Can you actually see what he looks like? Rumor has it that one out of every twenty viewers who watch Guy Fieri on TV claim they’ve taken a time machine back to 1998, when spiked and gelled frosted tips, wrap-around sunglasses, and Smash Mouth were all socially acceptable. So it’s hard to say what is and isn’t real about the guy.
Nevertheless, we found some great pictures of other people being weirded out by Guy Fieri:
