I recently had the honor to compete on Guy Fieri's new, super fun, cooking challenge based game show, Guy's Grocery Games. It was a blast!!! I'm on episode 5 of season 1, so check it out, as well as the rest of the season. You won't be disappointed! The show felt like a cross between super market sweeps, chopped and the price is right. WHat's not to love about that?
I gotta give mad props and love to my three competitors: Cassy Pugh, Marcel Cocit and Philippa Sklaar. They were all amazing folks, and to quote Walter Sobchak, worthy adversaries. The judges, Troy Johnson, Jet Tila and Lorena Garcia were also really rad people, and respectful toward everyone. For a competitive show, there was a lot more support and camaraderie than the home viewer might expect.
What was Guy like? I'll tell you, he is fucking electric. That man was born to entertain. He was kind and playful all day long, despite being smack dab in the middle of working ten 20 hour shifts back-to-back. And, mind you, he had just come off the set of filming Guy vs. Rachel. Dude's an animal, and it was SO inspirational to be in his presence for a few hours. Guy gave me some really deep and personal words of wisdom, and I truly hope I'm lucky enough to cross paths with him again, even if it's just for an ice cold beer together. I mean, especially if its for an ice cold beer!
