Guy Fieri's Ridiculous TV Man-Fort: A Helpful Breakdown

Posted By on Wed, Dec 28, 2011 at 2:45 PM

Each week we take a quick, cautious look at what's going on with televised cooking.

Have you seen Guy Fieri's kitchen-fort on Guy's Big Bite? I love this guy. Here are some photos from the set.

Le grand kitchen-fort. Go ahead, whisper "Awesome sauce." See how that feels.

We understand the racing stripes -- if Fieri likes to get in his fridge and pretend to drive it around, that's okay. He owns Johnny Garlic's fast-casual.

Fieri's been trying get Jesse James to come over for a playdate. These hubcaps could work. THEY HAVE TO.

The only thing worse than bumper pool table is someone who owns a bumper pool table. It's a trifle. A desecration. It is not serious thing.

Even Sammy Hagar won't play bumper pool.
