General: Food Network, Guy Fieri »
Once upon a time, in an $8,000/month loft somewhere in Greenwich Village, a Food Network executive had an unfortunate epiphany: “HEY, WE SHOULD SEND GUY FIERI TO CABO SAN LUCAS, FILM HIS STUPID ADVENTURES, AND PUT IT ON TELEVISION!” And just like that, Guy loaded his suitcase with every piece of hideous Knuckle Sandwich apparel in his wardrobe and boarded the next plane to Mexico faster than Sunny Anderson could remind us she’s an “army brat.”
If you missed the episode, here’s a quick photo recap:
Guy made a grand entrance on what can only be described as the world’s unluckiest horse. He then spent many minutes sweating and screaming into the camera, before ultimately cooking some truly disgusting looking scrambled eggs in a muffin tin on the grill.
Meanwhile, Aaron McCargo was back in NYC, choking on the cold, hard reality that none of the Food Network executives wanted to pay for him to go to Mexico. So, while the bigger stars were sipping drinks out of coconuts by the pool, he was stuck playing Kenneth The Page and orchestrating tours of the Food Network studios. Aaron swallowed his bitterness long enough to fake having a good time with some random woman, but it was clear he really just wanted to restrain her to a chair with his oversized hoop earrings and hop on the next flight out of town. Heads, Carolina. Tails, Camden.
To add salt to Aaron McCargo’s wounds, the Food Network flew two of Guy Fieri’s “biggest fans” out to Cabo to hang out with him (and by “biggest fans” I’m referring to a married couple that made no specific mention of Guy Fieri in the video they sent into the Food Network; they simply made a general inquiry about grilled chicken). They ate some tacos, visited some bars, and talked to some locals. They even got to hang out at a bonfire party with some of Guy Fieri’s drunk, loser-y friends who still think it’s cool to wear sunglasses at night.
Ah yes! My dream vacation indeed!
Stay tuned – our photo recap for Dear Food Network Grilling: Day 2 will be up shortly.
