As YouTube vidoes go, this is a rather long one but worth watching. Great clip from 5:43 to 7:15, of Guy practicing his lines before shooting the opening introduction to Big Daddy's BarB-Q's segment for Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, in Fairbanks, Alaska.
The episode has a holiday theme, so I'd expect it to air mid to late December.
Shot 10/6/09 at Big Daddy's BarB-Q, Fairbanks Alaska. It was an amazing experience but we're glad it's over. You wouldn't believe the hours of work that go into getting ready for and shooting this thing.
No one expects Guy Fieri to be super human, me least of all. I exchange messages with dozens (hundreds?) of exuberant fans, and I get messages expressing disappointment in the man's behaviors too.
thc1972 tweeted, "Apparently @ChefGuyFieri has been and gone here in Fairbanks. A friend told him she was a big fan and he blew her off. Now she's not. Idiot.... She's a server at a place he was at - she said 'I'm a fan, watch all your shows.' She wasn't looking for conversation ... and he looked at her and sneered 'that's nice.' 'Thank you' would have made her happy."
In Guy Fieri's Chefography, Guy's mother made a comment towards the end of the show; I don't have the exact quote. She said, if I ever hear about Guy not being nice to someone ....
Fans lift celebrities up. We're also the first ones to keep them humble. Penny, it's time to have that talk with Guy. Again.
