Guy's Big Bite Debut

At the auspicious hour of 7 AM, Top Chef winner Guy made his Food TV debut. IMHO his cooking is juvenile (steak and Tater Tots), hygiene less than wonderful ("we don't do too much washing around here.."), and not particularly easy to listen to (4 instances of "bassalmic" vinegar). Yes, he was not my favorite anyway. Do they plan to move him to a later hour? Or just hide the show.

  1. I think I might like having a beer with Guy Fieri, but I am not sure I could handle 30 minutes of slap dash cooking.

    1. I'm a little confused - "Top Chef" winner? That was Harold Dieterle. Do you mean someone on The Food Network "find-a-new-personality" show?

        Yeah, that's what the original poster meant, "The Next Food Network Star".

          Indeed, that's what I meant. Thanks.

      2. what happens to those two guys that won last year? Do they just get bumped off? I saw their show like once....that show was always hidden on weekend mornings, where I'm still sleeping.

        7am...yikes....i'm sure the show is catering to the bachelor types....the ones that are manlier and throw stuff together....just the vibe I got from him.

          Ahemm, us manly bachelor types are not up at 7am.

            all bachelors have Tivo.

            I'll set it for his next show but from what I've seen in the previews he seems like he's trying too hard to try to get that manly for the bachelor thing....uhh...yeah, i'm sure a show about frozen chicken breasts, george foreman grills and making quesedillas 4x a week is gonna pan out nicely.....

            "yeah, then you dump BBQ sauce on the hamburger and then cook it with shredded cheddar cheese for 30 seconds in the microwave"

            that would actually be enertaining though....

        2. Seems to me the ultimate goal of Food Network is not the new shows from the new faces, but the drama leading up to finding the new faces.

          Bogus programming if you ask me, just like all those stupid shows on food processing factories, or the worst of the bunch, that Bobby Rivers The 5 Best B.S.

          1. Just saw an ad while flipping channels - Guy's been moved to a 10/9 central spot on Sundays. Not quite as heinous as 7 AM.

              it's one of those situations where if you have directv on the east coast feed (even if you live on the West Coast) he's on at 7 a.m. on Sundays. I thought for sure they'd repeat it later in the day, but no dice. Meanwhile, if I see that wedding cake special one more time, so help me!
