Do You Hate Guy Fieri?

I just saw an article on Yahoo about everyone "hating" Guy Fieri. (I'm not sure why I even bother with Yahoo. Talk about worthless crap) I was kind of taken back about people not liking him. I can see how people might not like his over the top personality but never realized he was hated that much. I enjoy DDD. He seems like a guy you could drink a couple beers with.

Adam Richman from Man V. Food has also taken some flack in the past for making some negative comments and has also been "hated". I had a chance to meet and talk to him for a few minutes some years back. Super nice guy and very down to earth. 

So do you hate Guy Fieri?

    I don't hate him but Anthony Bourdain seems to.

    I read yesterday that Fieri's Times Square restaurant is closing it doors forever tomorrow night.

    Count me as a hater. And here I thought I was the only one. 

    Firstly, I hate him because I want his job. 

    Secondly, his response to everything he eats is about the same, and very predictable.

    I like DDD.  Too much hate.  His beer battered rings and blackened chicken Alfredo, da bomb.

  • I think the show is actually pretty good. He’s over the top, sure, but he showcases some pretty good places.  And it’s cool that they’re always interviewing some of the locals.

    I can see why people don’t like him and think he’s too cheesy though.

    Is he calling himself Fieri this week or "Fieti"? Seems to change lol...

    Hate is a strong word. Especially for someone I've never even met. And hope I never do! But I refuse to watch any show he's on and will never eat at one of his restaurants. Felt this way since I first saw him on Food Network Star (which he won). What an a$$. 

    So yeah, maybe I DO hate him. :rofl:

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    There is no way I can hate someone who likes food that much.
    Agreed!  How could anyone HATE Guy?  Love, not Hate!

    I’d agree that hate is strong for somebody I’ve never met, but the channel definitely get changed if he shows up.

    Maybe the last name changes as he drinks more bourbon?

    I love his show. He’s a kook, but seems like a fun kook.

  • I like all of his shows except DDD. The one at his home in the outdoor kitchen is good. Strangely enough a similar show that Bobby Flay has is pretty much the only one of his that I like.

    I enjoy his shows, especially the grocery games thing and DDD. We have sought out some places he visited on DDD and all have been very good. One Hot Mama's, Zunzi's and Southern Soul we may not have even knew about otherwise. I think he probably does good things publicity wise for small restaurant operations.
  • I think it's an act, much like the character Myron mixon plays on camera. 

  • I put him in the same catagory as 'Freebird', 'Hotel California' and 'Stairway to Heaven'.  Pretty good at first, but overexposure ruins everything.  I don't hate him, but I don't want to watch his shows, just like I turn the radio if one of the above songs comes on.

    Not a big fan... But the camaro he shows up is why I watch the show.
    Sarasota Fl. and  Lake Toxaway N.C. (and Novembers on the island of Kauai) (and April in France.... Don't hate on me for that)

    I like DDD, his taste in cars, and watches. 
  • I have a pair of his heat resistant gloves.  They're nice.  So is the '69 Camero he cruises around in on his show.

    I wouldn't count myself as a fan of his, but I do like the places he showcases on DDD, and I do like DDDs.

    It’s a ‘67... 
  • Maybe it's because he's done about a dozen DDD shows in Minnesota, including two within 5 minutes of here, but I find him very tolerable. It's surprising because normally I can't stand his type.

    Nope, but I do have disdain for Bourdain.

    @DoubleEgger How can you tell the difference between a 67 and 68 Camaro? You can spot a 69 with the head lights but have always wondered the difference between 67-68. Just curious as some call Fieri Camaro a 67 and others say 68. Any styling difference I'm not picking up on?

    Not me!  DDD is a great show.  Sounds like some may be jealous of him lol
