Questions from fans of Guy Fieri

I get quite a few emails and questions from fans in the comments sections of this blog. I collected a few questions and sent them off to Guy Fieri's publicists in New York to get a few answers. Here's what I found out!

Q: Guy's Big Bite cutting board surface - The set for GBB season 7 has a beautiful HUGE cutting board, flush with the counter. I've been asked from what material it is made. Wood, we know. But what kind of wood?
A: Cross cut walnut, produced by the Vermont Butcher Block (website).

Q: Guy's Big Bite furniture - A reader just wrote in today asking about the brand of furniture in the TV area of Guys' Big Bite?
A: There is a lot of furniture, but the chairs and ottomans are Aemes (Knoll).

Q: Guy's Holiday shirt - A grey shirt with a Santa on the back. Season 6 | Episode: 10 (Airdate: 12/7/08) Guy's Holiday Spread. Don't suppose that was wardrobe's offering? Whatever info you have would be great.
A: No idea, sorry

Q: Chefography: Guy Fieri, Guy's Big Bite and Next Food Network Star Season 2 - People are looking for these on YouTube; any movement or plans to release these on DVD?
A Haven't a clue.

Q: Tex Wasabi's Pork Slider recipe - I hear they're delicious. Care to share the recipes?
A: Unfortunately this is proprietary information so we can't share the recipe at this time.

Q: What is the current status of the Guy Fieri Foundation status? We've heard bits and pieces, but it's been a while since we had an update.
A: The GF Foundation is still in development stages. We'll keep you updated as it progresses.

Q: Chef Coats from the road show - They're a hit. Who made them?
A:We are looking at creating a retail version. In development right now. [Since asking this question, I've found that the chef coats were made by ChefWorks. ~D]

And just last night, I had a Twitter conversation with a fan about the red Camaro, as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. It appears that the car used in the Alaska episodes is not the same as the car used in the continental United States episodes.

This, of course, makes perfect sense. It would be unreasonably costly to trailer a car all the way up to Alaska. But I've got to give credit to a viewer who noticed the small differences.

You'll see in the picture above, the Camaro used in Oklahoma (upper right) is painted black on the back and the antenna is on the rear left-hand side. Whereas the Camaro used at the Silver Gulch in Alaska (left and lower right) is painted red on the back panel, with the antenna on the front right-hand side. :)

And speaking of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, Joe's Farm Grill is celebrating "Triple D Month" during the month of March with specials and Guy Fieri-oriented events. Click here for more.

did Guy get custody of nephew Jules?

Who has custody of Guy's nephew Jules? as I see him from time to time on GBB.

Dora said...

Jules' grandparents, Jim & Penny Ferry, were awarded custody of Jules. They live right next door to Guy, Lori and their two boys.
