Early Life

Guy Ramsey Ferry was born on January 22, 1968 and later changed his last name to the original family spelling “Fieri.” Guy Fieri grew up in Ferndale, California, and developed a passion for food and entrepreneurship at an early age.

When he was 10 years old, he and his father built a special pretzel cart. By selling pretzels, Fieri eventually earned enough money to fund the adventure of a lifetime. At age 16, Fieri spent a year studying in France, where he furthered his culinary education.

While attending the College of Nevada, Las Vegas, Fieri worked in various restaurants. He even served as a flambé captain for a time.

After graduating with a degree in hospitality management, Fieri continued to work in restaurants. He put his degree to work at a Stouffer’s restaurant and later became district manager for Louise’s Trattoria.

Career Beginnings

In 1996, Fieri opened his first restaurant with partner Steve Gruber. The two opened an Italian restaurant called Johnny Garlic’s in Santa Rosa, California. They later opened two more eateries. Fieri and Gruber turned their backs on Italian cuisine and opened Tex Wasabi’s in 2003. The restaurant is a mix of Southern BBQ and California-style sushi.

Prompted by his friends, Fieri sent a video to the reality show The Next Food Network Star in 2005. In his application video, he told the network that he likes to “live large, laugh a lot and cook wild.” His rock ‘n’ roll attitude helped him stand a chance against more than 1,000 other contestants.

Fieri faced challenges from television cooking stars such as Giada De Laurentiis, Paula Deen, Rachael Ray and Bobby Flay. In 2006, he emerged victorious, becoming the second person to win the cooking reality show.

Television Stardom

After being crowned the next Food Network star, Fieri launched his first television series, Guy’s Big Bite, in 2006, offering viewers plenty of bold flavors.

The blonde chef took his love of food on the road to Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, which also aired in 2006. In the show, Fieri travels the country in search of tasty, unpretentious dishes.

He next recorded Guy Off the Hook in 2008, a more traditional cooking show format in which he cooked in front of a live audience. Over the years, Fieri has become an unusual culinary icon with his trademark spiky hair, tattoos, bowling shirts and skateboard shorts.

In 2009, Fieri combined his love of food and music to create the Guy Fieri Roadshow. This “food-a-palooza” tour included a DJ, drinks and cooking demonstrations. He has also written several books, including 2011’s Guy Fieri Food: More Than 150 Off-The-Hook Recipes.

Beyond cooking, Fieri became a game show host in 2010. In Minute to Win It, he led contestants through numerous 60-second challenges and hosts several competition shows on Food Network, including Guy’s Grocery Games

Personal Life

Fieri lives in Santa Rosa, California, with his wife, Lori, and two sons, Hunter and Ryder. When he and Lori married in 1995, the chef changed his last name to “Fieri” to honor his original family name, which his grandfather had changed when he left Italy.

There are two different things: there’s grilling, and there’s barbecue. Grilling is when people say, ‘We’re going to turn up the heat, make it really hot and sear a steak, sear a burger, cook a chicken.’ Barbecue is going low and slow.
