Guy Fieri opinions

I was wondering what food lovers and cooks opinion on Guy Fieri was. All my friends who don't enjoy cooking and food as much as I do thinks he is a tool, a douche', etc etc etc.

I think he is an amazing tv personality and his show is so resourceful. If you are traveling it is nice to know where to go eat in that area. I've been to multiple places where he has been to, but I went there first before I saw the episodes, and some places are good and some places aren't.

I like him in DDD. Not so much in Big Bites.

I like him a lot. He's entertaining, knows a lot about food and brings business to unusual, out of the way places. What's not to like?

Enjoy DDD like big bite when he has one of his boys with him. Seems like a nice person and good family man.

I've only seen him a couple times, but I liked what I saw... He seems very genuine to me. Just lots of natural energy lol

Haha its a freakish resemblence with that frost tipped hair. I think thats why that other woman on food network star didn't win, because she had bleached hair. 2 bleached is the limit for food network.

I like Guy ... always have. He has so much positive energy, his sense of humor is terrific and he knows how to cook ! He's good at sharing secrets to his recipes and his DDD is a great show. He's a winner in my book.

I generally like him, but more, I like seeing all the kinds of foods on DDD.

He doesn't actually help any of the cooks, with advice or technique. He's more of a salesman than a cook on that show. Of course, the restaurants featured wouldn't want one negative word from him.

Has anyone tried to find the DDD he has featured when going on a road trip?
