A Guy Fieri impostor was interviewed on-air Monday night during Fox Sports Net’s broadcast of the Royals game.
Guy Fieri, for those who don’t know, is the Food Network host of “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.” He travels the country visiting these places. He has been to Kansas City before.
The impostor gave interviewer Joel Goldberg’s questions short, rude, one-word answers. He was acting like he wanted no part of the interview. He took a phone call during the interview.
The real Guy Fieri updated his Twitter status to let everyone know it wasn’t him. I wonder if the guy planned to impersonate Fieri or if the sportscaster just spotted him, and he decided to play along?
Our friend Chris Kula sums it up:
If I were to rate a fill-in-the-blank contest of “Who’s a random, specific celebrity to impersonate in a public setting?” the host of cable TV’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives would receive awfully high marks.
