Not your mother’s cooking show, or your gay uncle’s either

4 Dec

So I’ve been addicted to watching cooking shows lately, but there’s one guy that just rubs me the wrong way. It’s called Guys Big Bite, and it’s a testosterone-filled food fest. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it’s like testosterone of the DOUCHE variety. You know, guys that wear their pants around their knees and hats incorrectly? That kind of testosterone. It’s *unbelievable*! It’s so obvious they want men to watch their show, but they are trying WAY too hard. Look at this clip for example:

I won’t even get into the host’s choice of hairstyle or color, or his apparel. That would be too easy. However, in the few clips I have watched, they ALWAYS have stuff playing on the TV on mute. And of course it’s filled with action-packed, manly things! Like in this clip, it’s kayaking. One time I saw alligators fighting, WTF.

I…there are no WORDS. The show just rubs me the wrong way. The guy irritates me SO. MUCH.

Am I the only one?

Ayn: Apparently, Anthony Bourdain (also kind of a douche) doesn’t care for him either:

“Did you ever see the Simpsons episode where it’s decided that Itchy and Scratchy need a sidekick? So a committee gets together and they invent one called Poochie…. Guy Fieri kind of looks like he’s been designed by that committee …”

    Clearly you and I are not the target demographic for the show and this is possibly why it irritates you. Some guys – manly men with mustaches under their mustaches – would probably look at it and go “Now that’s a cooking show I can watch without feeling gay.”
