‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives’ host and Food Network star Guy Fieri demands to be told whenever he’s about to interview someone who might be gay so that he can prepare and brace himself, which probably sounds gayer than how he meant it.
Wait, Guy Fieri ISN’T gay?
Fieri… needed protection from homosexuals, or at least advance warning. Early in the show’s run, (show creator and executive producer David Page) got a phone call from Fieri, who’d just walked out of a restaurant in a huff.
“Guy had decided that the two men running the restaurant were life partners,” Page remembers. “He said, ‘You can’t send me to talk to gay people without warning! Those people weird me out!’”
From then on, show researchers were required to note any indications of homosexuality detected during pre-interviews.
The awesome part is that the two life partners probably went back to the kitchen and yelled at someone because having some cartoony jackass dry hump a ham and bark out unrelated catch phrases for 15 minutes weirded them out.
