Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.
Well, I just spent a week in Italy, and I enjoyed it immensely. Truly, the research I did writing those questions from last week did pay off, and I was way more comfortable and knowledgable of what was on the menu. But now I’m back in America, and a new season is upon us.
By the way, I hope you read the B Vitamins post so you could get one of those questions right yesterday!
Since I’m back in the US, I wanted to do something that was both Italian and American, so let’s have some questions about Guy Fieri! Enjoy!
1. With more than 24 seasons and starting in 2007 (which means the seasons are numbered dumbly), name Guy Fieri’s signature show, often nicknamed as “Triple D”. You have to get the words in the right order.
2. Guy’s first big break was when he won the second season ofwhat competition show, hosted by Bobby Flay since 2005? After Guy’s win, he was given his own show, starting his ascension into fame.
3. The ingredients of what condiment are shown here?
4. Guy received a bunch of attention in 2012 after the New York Times reviewed his new restaurant Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square. It hilariously attacks all aspects of the restaurant, and has been listed as the most read restaurant review ever. One line is “When you hung that sign by the entrance that says, WELCOME TO ___ ___!, were you just messing with our heads?” Name this two (or one, no consistency) word phrase often used by Guy to describe ideal eating locations, where he talked about in detail with an interview in Vice.
5. Guy has also forayed into other hosting jobs. Name the non-food NBC game show Guy hosted from 2010-2011, and for a bonus point, name the Olympian that hosted the GSN revival version of the show in 2013-2014.
6. With what type of product are the brands Fender and Cubavera closely associated with Guy Fieri?
