Guy Fieri's Ridiculous TV Man-Fort: A Helpful Breakdown

Posted By on Wed, Dec 28, 2011 at 2:45 PM

Each week we take a quick, cautious look at what's going on with televised cooking.

Have you seen Guy Fieri's kitchen-fort on Guy's Big Bite? I love this guy. Here are some photos from the set.

Le grand kitchen-fort. Go ahead, whisper "Awesome sauce." See how that feels.

We understand the racing stripes -- if Fieri likes to get in his fridge and pretend to drive it around, that's okay. He owns Johnny Garlic's fast-casual.

Fieri's been trying get Jesse James to come over for a playdate. These hubcaps could work. THEY HAVE TO.


No Disney movie is complete without a wall of license plates. Not sure what is going on here.

The only thing worse than bumper pool table is someone who owns a bumper pool table. It's a trifle. A desecration. It is not serious thing. The only thing a bumper pool table is good for is throwing up on. Fieri could have put a nice little bar table there and blown off steam with the gang after takes, but he goes with a toy that only two people in the country even know the rules of. Even Sammy Hagar won't play bumper pool.

Have you ever played pinball from the early '70s? It's basically Pong. Still, I would play Drop-a-Card (1971), and I would play the shit out of Twilight Zone (1993) or Addams Family (1992).


According to the site, Fieri rented (rented?) all these trophies from a prop shop. Is there anything sadder in all the world? Except for a few other things in this kitchen-fort, like ...

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
