Little-Known Facts About Guy Fieri

While you likely watch a show hosted by Guy Fieri every time you turn on The Food Network, there are likely a few things about the host and restaurant owner that your probably didn’t know.

For instance, the guy who’s known for trying meat dishes all across the country actually grew up with vegetarian parents. His mother and father made it clear that if he wanted to eat meat, he’d have to learn how to prepare it himself.

Fieri was actually born with the last name “Ferry,” but changed his name to honor his grandfather, Giuseppe Fieri.

Fieri planned a morning-after brunch for his friend Matthew McConnaughey after the actor married Camila Alves.

Now that I’m thinking about it, the president of the college I’m at, Jonathan Veitch, does the same thing. He must be a Fieri fan.

Guy Fieri has hosted 233 episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and 191 episodes of Guy’s Big Bite. Fieri is currently the host of Guy’s Grocery Games on The Food Network.
