I HATE that bleached bloated bastard Guy Fieri. He stands there with his mouth crammed full of food, talking and chewing at the same time - I can't believe the producers haven't corrected his manners. He's so gross.

Plus he ruined my neighborhood diner. They were always busy, but his visit and and feature turned it into a circus - just TRY getting a seat there before 9:30 PM on a Saturday.

Guy is awesome.

Just watch him jabbering away with his mouth full next time you tune in.  I bet they've got tons of outtake footage of the camera man wiping food chunks and Guy's slobber off the lens.

I just like his personality. I think he would be a fun guy to party with.

Sure, if you were wearing a raincoat or there was no food being offered at the party.  He's the kind of person I'd worry would drink too much and pee all over the furniture.

Nah, Guy does seem to be a party kinda guy, his personality reminds me of Sammy Hagar a little - cool to hang out with for a while and shoot the $h!t smile.gif

But - with Guy, I think you better be prepared to not say much all night, he seems like the kinda guy that would take over the party and yap all night long.

Ah yes, Sandra the Semi-Ho. A few of her ideas (haven't watched her in a while) weren't bad as shortcuts go.  
Others were an affront to food, like mixing canned cake frosting with a box of powdered sugar, blobbing it onto waxed paper, and calling the sickly-sweet dried out result "truffles".   She should have been shot for that one.

I've never been a big fan of the over-the-top theme party settings she's fond of, with all the matchy-matchy cutesy tableware and stuff.  Just clean the house and make sure there's plenty of food and liquor.  Spend less time on the decor and more on the food.

My 10 year old daughter calls her "the drunk lady" because she always has to make a drink in every episode.... she is from WI, what can I say. Guess that's why I don't really fit in here much smile.gif Never been much of a drinker.

I agree with Tick's opinion of "the Neely's". They act like clowns on their show. After watching all I can remember is their over-the-top antics, not what they were cooking.

I watched one woman the other day who was "ok". She made sure that she showed some cleavage. Can't remember her name but she looks a bit like Susan Lucci with a toothy white grin that is reminiscent of Mary Lou Retton.

z7shysterical.gif  Yep, that's her!

One thing that drove me nuts about her show was the overuse of the phrase "golden brown".  EVERYTHING that went into the oven or the fryer was supposed to be "golden brown".  Okay, we get it - usually when something's "charcoal black" it's past the point of "done".  

She makes good food, though.

and Rachel Ray is soooooo annoying.
She tries to make it convenient by abbreviating extra virgin olive oil to, "e v o o" to not have to say extra virgin olive oil.
The problem is, if you have to say extra virgin olive oil every single time after saying "e v o o" to tell your audience what it stands for, YOUR MAKING IT EVEN LONGER YOU DUMB ASS!!!!

Her show didn't bother me, but she did seem a bit enthusiastic while her shirt exposed some plump breasts.

I used to belong to the "Rachel Ray Sux" message board over on Live Journal before the chick that started it got bored with it.  (I joined when I was between jobs - at the time I needed a snark outlet).

She's a wreck - I've seen her handle raw chicken or pork and then not wash her hands immediately afterwards.
