Guy Fieri "Just Does Commercials" for Friday's

TMZ caught up with Guy Fieri outside Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills recently (must not have been a big celebrity night) and knew enough about him to ask why he wasn't dining at Friday's. Ha!

It's not as bad as what TMZ writes in its headline ("Food Network Chef Bites Hand That Feeds"), but Guy isn't all that praiseful of the casual dining chain he endorses.


"I thought we'd see you at Friday's," says the cameraman.

"No, I'm a Food Network chef. I just do commercials for Friday's. You know how it works."

Hoping to get more out of him, the cameraman asks, "Do you like Friday's" upon which Guy replies, "It's a good gig."

I believe he was wondering how you felt about the restaurant, Guy. Soooo, since you're getting lots of money from them and subjecting us to more and more commercials ... why don't you let us know your real feelings, 'kay?

If Jordan Baker and I can subject ourselves to Friday's, Guy should too.

Friday's is just like the food he cooks on his show, no? And the food he features on DD&D, no? And I bet Guy enjoys greasy food, huh? I know I do (luuuv me a big, greasy burger and some deep fried fries and deep fried chocolate and caramel empanadas with ice cream, whipped cream, nuts, cherries...wait, what was the subject at hand?) So, what's the problem for Guy? It's not like Friday's is out of his caliber. Oh yeah, the food just bites.

Oops, Guy!! Can you say, "I HAD a commercial gig with Fridays"!

Why didn't guy just turn on his DD&D persona and say, "Ohhhh, wow, that is the best... Oh, man, that's MONEY... That's the best thing I ever tasted... Whoa -- nice crunch, good heat, super tender and flavorful..."?

It's not like Tony Bourdain doing an Olive Garden commercial, now that would be something to watch. Do you think Tyler Florence eats at Applebee's? Guy owns restaurants maybe he even cooks in them, once in a while. Never been there so how can I say. So I'm I Guy F. fan, I may not cook what he makes but I like his shows, they are fun and in 2 of them he prepares food. I'll take Triple D over "Road Tasted" (white trash or black sugar) any time. You think AB only drinks Welch's Grape juice?

Can someone please tell em why this guy has gone from Ferry, to Fieri to Fee-Yeddy please ?

Wasn't he and his family street urchin types hawking food up in Eureka , not to long ago ?

No one expects Tyler to eat at Applebee's or Alton to drink Welch's, but when asked about them you wouldn't expect them to dismiss it as something beneath them.

I don't even care for Guy F. but I didn't take his "good gig" comment as a slam to Friday's. WTF people?

Anon 3:02, try to read the entire thing.

"No, I'm a Food Network chef. I just do commercials for Friday's. You know how it works."

"You know how it works." Translation: I take money to do their commercials, but I wouldn't actually eat there.

Friday's around where I live are pretty good and actually very popular. The food is great! Sad that they aren't all the same good expereince across the nation.

To paraphrase one of the FN Holiday Eatings commercials from last year Guy...

Being a Food Network Tool is money!

Guy's right - Friday's sucks!

He is a sweaty little bastid, ain't he?

If someone has been thinking that Guy might be a phony....this would support their case.

Friday's does suck. It's a chain. Hello? Chains suck.

Please don't call Jacob , "Jake". I get upset. It hurts my feelings.

I think I will just go hide under the bed until I feel strong enough to face the world.

Maybe go watch some Dr. Phil.

And stop being a meaning Alec Arse.

This GUY really needs to go away. Not even pleasing to look at and his food, well with the way people are trying to get healthy, who would make this stuff!!!!!

At least he doesn't wear a tank top like Gene on Top Chef. I just can't help but think of hair (the kinky kind) in my food.

I hope Fridays fires his ass so I don't have to see his commercials anymore.

Will someone tell Guy Fieri that "Swingers" came out a long time ago? It's no longer cool to call things "money."

if anyone is who makes comments here is homophobic then why the hell are they participating in a blog created by a CLEARLY GAY man????

I think if you are the advertising face of any product or entity, you should choose your words a bit more carefully when talking about it and try not to come off as dismissive.

when he says 'i'm a food network chef, you know how it works' that almost makes it sound as if they force him to do stuff like that. if his name/brand is owned by food network.. i kinda suspect they put him up to this friday's thing. of course he gets paid well for it which would make sense that its a 'good gig'. but i bet food network and friday's have some sort of deal arranged. just a thought..

Food network chef? Is that in reference to that culinary masterpiece "Guy's Big Bite?" Or does watching short order cooks now qualify you to be a Food Network chef?

I am so sick of this douche bag. He needs to go and fast. And he is not a Chef. A winner of a lame reality show does not a Chef make. Neither does a degree in hospitality.

the guy we love to hate......

A degree in hospitality ? Is this higher than a degree in "communications" ???

I think only cementheads took lames ass courses like this ?

I'd be checkin backgrounds because I think Fee-Etti might have pulled off a few whoppers.

Guy is just not presentable with that fake platinum hair, funky shorts, and sweat beads dripping off his face. He obviously tries to have a niche by patterning himself off of Emeril and others, but it isn't working. And then when he's on the road, he eats out of and over the pots, double dips, and is always hovered over the food. I wouldn't want to eat at any restaurant knowing he was in the kitchen. Nasty!

I noticed that all the greasy food he eats seems to exude from his pores. These responses he gave about Friday's lead me to believe he doesn't eat there, though they seem to have the type of greasy unhealthy food he gorges himself on.

He's not a freekin' "chef"!! Omg what a joke. How this person got to where he is is beyond my comprehension. The cross section of the average person in this country must is a very sad realization. Well look, we voted the most pompous frivolous spender into office. But thats a whole other topic.

All of us just want to use a network with a good quality, but when the network has some failures is necesary to know about the appropriate tools and fix the problem as soon as possible. Actually this blog is very useful. This is similar with a webside that i saw recently is called costa rica investment opportunities
