Guy Fieri is a lot of things. He wears many hats, if you will. He’s a chef, he’s a restaurant owner, and he’s the muse for Ed Hardy (probably). He is also definitely, definitely a TV person. He’s the TV person. He got a show on the Food Network because he won a reality show competition called The Next Food Network Star. And, despite the fact that he actually can cook, his restaurants don’t get great reviews. That’s probably because he’s focused on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, which is now in its 24th season. Because he’s a TV person.
Apparently, he doesn’t see it that way. This week, The Hollywood Reporter filmed a roundtable discussion that included Fieri, Mark Cuban, Jane Lynch, and Nick Cannon to talk all things reality TV and the state of our nation. Fieri said at the roundtable that in order to be a celebrity chef, you’ve “got to have the goods. You’ve got to be a chef.” Later, he said, “I’m not a T.V. person. I’m a chef that happened to get an extra check doing TV shows. So I don’t have anything else to give you. What you see is what you get.”
