Thank you, Mr. Fieri. Your corny jokes and taste buds have gone a long way.

8 Reasons Why Guy Fieri Rules
You Just Made My List!

Aside from your typical Netflix series, The Food Network has a huge hold over my life at school, and I’ve found that a lot of college students can agree with me. I’m not too sure what it is. Maybe it’s the fact that, as college students on a tight grocery budget, we can watch delicious, gourmet food on a screen with just a click of a button. Maybe it’s the fact that we can learn new and exciting recipes that we all know we won’t have time to get to.

Or, maybe it’s because of the enchanting, infamous, frosted tips of Guy Fieri. We all know how cool Guy Fieri is. Well, at least I do, and I’m here to tell you why.

Top 8 Reasons Why Guy’s a Good Guy:

1. He was a frat dude!

As a college student, Guy participated in the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Imagine this. He didn’t even go to culinary school. He received his bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management. Sounds like he just wanted to live up the typical college experience.

2. Guy is a host with the most.

He isn’t just a host for one Food Network show, or two; he’s a host for THREE shows. His most iconic show is where he travels “all over the country…looking for America’s greatest diners, drive-ins, and dives!” He’s also well known for "Guys Big Bite," and his most recent show, "Guy’s Grocery Games." It’s fair to say he offers a lot of variety.

3. Guy's got restaurants.

I have yet to check them out, but he also owns and runs some of his own restaurants. Not only is he gracing our television screens with his comedy gold, but he also graces our stomachs with real-time food. I’m all about it.

4. He does what he wants.

Guy Fieri is pretty much my spirit animal, and he kind of just doesn’t give a damn. If he’s hungry, he’ll poke his fingers in your food and try it, and the best part is he’ll love every bit of it. You can easily tell on "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" that the chefs of the kitchens get pretty annoyed sometimes when he does that. It’s pretty hilarious on my end, though. I would totally do that.

5. His hair is on point.

Like I said earlier: those iconic frosted tips. Just check out those bleach blonde, pointy, spiked hairs on the top of his head. Need I say more? I mean, come on. Last time we saw that was in the early 2000s with Justin Timberlake. This dude is the only person that can still kill the frosted tips game in the year 2016. Impressive.

6. He's a one-of-a-kind dude.

He’s not like those other stuck up, full-of-themselves Iron Chefs on the Food Network. It’s easy to see that Guy has clearly let himself go a little bit, and that’s OK. He also doesn’t think he’s the hottest thing to hit your television screen. You can tell he’s genuinely funny and doesn’t need prestigious titles to define who he is.

7. Like father, like son.

He loves his son, Hunter. It’s pretty cute. They went to Europe together and tried all kinds of foreign food before Hunter went off to college. So clearly he’s a pretty rad dad.

8. Guy's an American Icon!

Guy Ferry, Guy Fieri, however you want to pronounce it, he’s just a GOOD guy. Do you see why now? He’s an American icon and a huge influence on the food industry, even if you don’t realize it. Thank you, Mr. Fieri. Your corny jokes and taste buds have gone a long way.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
