Today is Guy Fieri's birthday.
The Daily Meal recently named America’s 50 Most Powerful People in Food, defined as "in the food world, the people with power are the ones who affect what and how and where and why we eat — or who can, if they want to.
"The Daily Meal editors collaborated to assemble our initial list, then added and subtracted, fine-tuned and developed."
Guy Fieri is listed at #16, noting his successes with the second season of The Next Food Network Star in 2006, his current three Food Network shows, as well as the NBC game show, Minute To Win It. "His very visibility makes him a major player in the food scene."
Guy's birthday celebration can only last the weekend; on Monday, back to work at "Minute to Win It."
