When Guy Fieri was ten years old, he and his dad together built a pretzel cart. He sold pretzels from this cart until he was 16. He saved money from this for his personal use. Whenever he did not like what was set on the table, he would grab something better for himself. This could be the genesis of his lethal entrepreneurial skills.
Since 1996 when he first established his first restaurant in partnership with his friend Steve Gruber, Guy has ‘lived big, laughed loud and cooked wild’ (His own words).
And this hard work has paid off in wealth and recognition. In 2005, his friends motivated him to get into ‘The Next Food Network Star’ competition.
He sent a short video of him doing what he does best, intimidating his competitors with his rock and roll attitude, he won the show, becoming the second person to win the show. This was in 2006. With his charm, that brought many viewers to be glued on the channel, he was made the face of ‘Food Network Show.’
In 2007, he traveled to the Persian Gulf as a guest of the US Navy base and served the servicemen with his heart-made delicacies.
Also, while he was still a teenager, he convinced the administration of his school to allow him to run a small gig that earned him enough money that he went to France with and spent a whole year in a strange world. This was not a comfortable experience anyway but must have come with a lot of lesions.
The guy was the winner for the ‘Walk of Fame” awards in 2019. Other than, he has been nominated seven times for the ‘Emmy Awards’ and has won it once, in the year 2013.
Guy brews his wine!
This is probably the coolest thing about this chef. Hunt and Ryde Winery is the name of the firm that produces the wine. The company is named after their two boys, Hunter and Ryde. Guy says that he wanted to avoid celebrity names for the wine and decide to use his sons. The boys must be fortunate to have such a legacy.
Fieri family has a male tortoise pet named pop. He is a sulcata. He has his hut but is notorious for getting outside the fence, forcing the family to hunt him down. Fieri often posts the pictures of his pet on his social media accounts.
After high school, Guy joined the University of Nevada in Las Vegas and took a bachelor of science in Hospitality management. He graduated in 1990 before kicking off his professional career.
Gets Angry with negative reviews.
When a popular magazine wrote a negative about one of his restaurant, Guy was furious. Things got worse when his PR team suggested that he shut down the restaurant to make some improvements before they get back to business; he did not take that either. He probably made the smartest move of informing the magazine that their review came up quite early before things were entirely in place. Smart move.
His weird choice of food.
On his show, Guy has been seen eating everything, and when challenged, he can cook anything. But this excellent chef hates eggs. There are thousands of ways he can either cook or use eggs as an ingredient, but it’s never come in contact with his taste buds.
It could be the reason he is not useful in baking. Funnily enough, he loves kales. Of all the green vegetables he can cook, kales seem to be doing a lot of justice to his taste buds and stomach.
Guy Fieri Books and other Ventures.
Guy Fieri has written a total of seventeen books; there could be more, as she seeks to keep records of his passion for generations to come. His books are yet to receive recognition.
