Guy Fieri lives in Santa Rosa, California with his wife Lori and their two sons, Hunter (born August 7, 1996) and Ryder (born in 2005).
He opened up his first food business (operating his own pretzel cart) at the age of 10. After earning his degree in hospitality management, he continued working in restaurants. He brought his degree to work at a Stouffer's restaurant, and later became a district manager for Louise's Trattoria.
After winning the Next Food Network Star, he started his first television series, Guy's Big Bite in 2006, offering viewers lots of bold flavors. He used his affection for food on the road for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, which also debuted in 2006. In 2009, Fieri combined his love of food and music to set up the Guy Fieri Roadshow. This "food-a-palooza" tour featured a DJ, cooking demonstrations and drinks. Over the years, Fieri has appeared as an unusual culinary icon with his trademark tattoos, spiky hair, bowling shirts and skateboarder shorts.
