A well-known restauranteur, Guy Fieri owns a number of restaurants across the country. Raised in California, he developed an interest in cooking as a teen, during a foreign exchange trip to France. Wanting to learn more about the culinary arts, he later worked at a restaurant upon his return to the United States. Over time, he eventually became the district manager of Louise’s Trattoria. Taking his passion to the next level, he opened up his first restaurant, “California Pasta Grill” in Santa Rosa, California in 1996 with business partner, Steve Gruber. Since then, four additional locations have opened across the US.
Many years later, Fieri came into the public eye after winning the second season of the CBS show, The Next Food Network Star. As the champion of the competition, he was given his own six-episode cooking show; Guy’s Big Bite later premiered on the Food Network on June 25, 2006. Popular among audiences, the series continues to air on television to this day. Continuing to make himself known on the small screen, he eventually received a second series titled, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives in April 2007. Hosted by the restaurateur himself, it features him traveling and visiting various eateries in the country.
From there, he began co-hosting the culinary show, Ultimate Recipe Showdown in 2008, alongside Marc Summers. After three years, his next series, Guy Off the Hook premiered on the Food Network. Similar to the likes of Emeril Live and Paula’s Party, each episode is recorded in front of a student audience with whom he engages with on a regular basis. Since then, Fieri has appeared in several other programmings including Dinner: Impossible, The Best Thing I Ever Ate, and Ace of Cakes. In 2009, he also served as the host of Minute to Win It, a game show that aired on NBC.
What has Guy Fieri been up to recently? As before, he has been heavily involved with television over the past couple of years- for instance, he starred in Guy & Hunter’s European Vacation and Warriors in 2016. So far in 2017, he has been busy with the shows, Guy’s Family Road Trip, and Super Southern Eats. Currently, he is also hosting the game show, Guy’s Grocery Games which has been on the air since 2013. Outside of reality TV, he’s also acted on a few occasions. Just last year, he played the part of Longtail in the fantasy drama, Warriors (2016). In addition to that, he’s also taken part in the series, Phineas and Ferb, and I Get That a Lot.
