Big Daddy Aaron McCargo Sadly Takes Fashion Tips from Guy Fieri


Big Daddy Aaron McCargo Jr. appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly this morning to talk about Game Day Grub. While his tortilla encrusted chicken tenders looked pretty good (and Regis' pronunciation of "tore-till-uh" elicited a few chuckles), Aaron's choice of a white button-up shirt with a super sweet embroidery of some sort makes me fear our biggest of daddies has been taking fashion tips from the other big man on Food Network, Guy Fee-Eddie.

Take a look:

Check out the video HERE.

I think there's still room for some fashion originality on the network. I mean, what's next, Giada popping her collar, a la Ina G.?

Ugh! I am so pissed at Guy tonight, I can hardly stand it.

Met up with him in Seattle last night. He was haughty, rude, insulting (literally. I mean, he insulted me) and dismissive.

sorry he was rude to you, he's a douche.

i hate guy! he's such a fucking guido. i cant stand his lingo... i can't stand his recipes. i hate his bleached hair and his wrist bands. i hate his flip flops, his khaki shorts, and the way he puts his sunglasses behind his head.

he's like 35+ and still bleaches his hair and tans in a booth like the other california guidos. he makes me sick.

okay im done.

sheesh! was this about guy or big daddums???

i frankly could give a huge crap what ANYONE wears on these stupid shows if they can just speak proper english and actually cook something and have it be instructive fun and fabulous.
is this too much to ask???

ps GF CAN be rather annoying but trust me folks he is laughing at that vicious spittle flying out of your mouths all the way to the bank.....

Anon 1:54 ... and big daddums is hoping to cash in on some of that bank, eh?

Naw, Guy was cool when he first started and had some humility. That's gone now. It sucks! Even the ppl he's working with are starting to see it.

Airports have to be the sink hole of crappy places to be recognized and chatted up. Cut the Brother some slack.

Aarroonnn is a 'tard. His 15 minutes are so over. Next!

I'm so disappointed. I like Guy too.

I do agree with the 40 going on 10 persona though.

I know you said Guy's 35+ but check Wikipedia on what that 'plus' really is. The guy is 41! I can't stand him either.

I can't believe they stopped making shows like "Food Finds" and "The Secret Life of..." to make "Triple-D" and "New Cities for the Neely's to Get it On".

*big sigh* I'd worked a couple weeks with Guy's assistant to set up a meeting between him and the rock band I work with. When we were gigging in Santa Rosa, we heard from one of Guy's "krew" that he was a fan of ours, and I was doing the man a favor.

(hey, I kinda liked Guy. I shared a charity dinner with him in October. He was cocky that night, but not insufferable.)

He showed up 2 1/2 hours late for the meeting - no messages - we were just left hanging there. I texted his assistant to see what was up after about an hour, and she said she'd been unable to get a hold of him all day.

So we gave up and left the bar. Right as everyone had gone their separate ways, the assistant texted me that he was on his way. I went back to speak to him in person.

After a minute or two, he recognized me, called me "the crazy one." (I do have a wicked and rather bawdy sense of humor) He had a few laughs with his entourage camera crew at my expense, said that if the band felt like it, they could all come back now that he was there.

I said no, that we'd already waited 2 1/2 hours and spent $400 at the bar. We were beat, and everyone had gone already.

Oh well, he said, turned his back on me and went inside.

(Sorry to vent here, Jacob. Your post was just incredibly timely) I'll move on now ....

Food Network: I don't want to see an arrogant fat rude slob cook. A woman would never get away with looking as crappy as Guy looks on camera. Would not happen. But because he's male we're supposed to accept his slob demeanor, idiotic clothes and bad hair dye job as "just a regular guy."

And now his slobbiness appears to be rubbing off on the other amateurs you're shoving at us these days.

Guy Fieri needs to go back to his "Man Cave" and start using his rowing machine on a regular basis. And then he needs a visit from those 5 gay guys who might just might be able to help him look slightly more presentable. But it would be their biggest challenge I'm sure.

Anon 11:23, you sound like some cranky 90 year old. Rowing machine? Five gay guys? Update your references, please.

Okay, so Guy can be pretty annoying. Christ, just get over it already, people. The FN has basically made him the face of the network and you're either going to have to accept that and ignore him, stop watching, or continue to whine for the rest of your days.

I'm sorry to read all the negativity about Guy. What goes around...it'll ultimately catch up to him. The only person that hasn't changed with all the notoriety is Ina. She's a class act.

I would say Bobby, Tyler, Alton, Sunny and Mario seem to be pretty cool people.

But guess what? We don't know these people. I don't understand why everyone is so obsessed with judging everyone based on the half-hour they see them on TV. A commenter here had a lousy run-in with Guy, but most of you won't even be in the same STATE at these people. So just chill the hell out and concentrate on their recipes and not their supposed "jerkiness."

Anon 3:12 - yeah, but isn't that what a blog is all about? Opinions based on what we think, know and feel?

I'm not too fond of Big Daddy nor of GF. But a lot of their recipes are pretty good, and I'll keep makin' 'em.

I think that Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is a great show and because of that I can tolerate Guy. The concept of the show is great.

Guy is like Aaron and the Neeley's, I want to like them, but they are like RR and Over-the-Top.

We have the best chefs, why get rid of Emeril and Mario to make room for some of these folks.

I'm not sure why Guy is the face of the Food Network, but I don't think it has anything to do with his recipes.

His clothes, man-ccessories, hair and personality are fair game because they are more crucial to his fame than his recipes.

I'd probably like some of his recipes, but I ain't buyin' his act.

McCargo is said to have passed the eight grade and that is the extent of his edumacation.Anyone know this to be true ?

As for Fee Eddy, at least he won NFNS honestly and fairly and McCArgo was installed the winner because he is black. That is it.

Guido ! lol haven't heard that in awhile. Napa guido !

Anon @ 6:59pm, you forgot to add "In My Own Opinion" to your uninsightful analysis of Aaron. What does his having an 8th grade education have to do with his cooking skills? Still grabbing at straws to find a reason to dislike him without straight up saying you just don't like him because of his skin color. He could clearly cook circles around what little competition he had on "NFNS", that's what got him the show.

It has nothing to do with his cooking skills but he's a TV chef and the lack of education shows. He needs to keep his cooking in the kitchen and not on TV.

I like the Neely's. Aaron can learn from Pat. That's for sure.

I agree with you 3:12 except for Sunny. Way over the top for me.

I love Ina but I hate her popped collars. They work on polo shirts but on big and loose button down shirts? No.

Guy Fee Eddy should be more authentic--just like me.

You people are not going to believe this, but I saw Guy Fieri and Billy Mays together at a swanky restaurant the other day. Everyone there noticed them because, both of them were talking very very loud!
I wonder what's going on?
