Guy Fieri inks a new three-year deal with Food Network that will expand his role

Food Network is solidifying its hold on Guy Fieri.

The 53-year-old Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host just signed a new three-year deal with television’s culinary giant, The Hollywood Reporter published on Monday.  

It is likely that the bleach-blond star – who will eat anything ‘on a flip-flop’ if it’s good enough – is making a good chunk of change in the deal, though the exact amount was not disclosed.

‘Guy Fieri infuses his unmatched energy and passion into every show he makes,’ Food Network president Courtney White told THR. 



‘He is truly one-of-a-kind, adored globally for his own love of food and his deep appreciation for the people behind the restaurant scenes,’ she continued. ‘I am beyond thrilled to be able to continue this extraordinary, creative partnership.’ 

Fieri has been with the network since winning season two of The Next Food Network Star in 2006. His new contract will bring him close to two decades with the culinary giant and expand his producing role.

THR reported that Guy will continue developing and producing new series under his production company Knuckle Sandwich.

'The world of food is the ultimate unifier so having a global platform to share real-life stories of some of the most deserving chefs, restauranteurs, home cooks, entrepreneurs and anyone who just loves a good meal is an incredible opportunity. I can't wait for everyone to see what we're cookin' up next,' Guy said in a statement

Fieri has hosted 33 seasons of his addictive Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives series and later launched two culinary competition games, Guy’s Grocery Games and Tournament of Champions. 

He’s also starred in and produced several other shows for the network like his first, Guy’s Big Bite, and Guy’s Family Road Trip.

The latter of which is currently airing season two, which was filmed under strict COVID-19 safety protocols. 

In response to the pandemic, partnered with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation and created the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund for those industry workers impacted by closures. The fund managed to raise over $20 million in less than two months.

When he won Food Network Star in 2006, Fieri was already the owner and operator of a handful of Northern California restaurants but since has expanded his empire across the nation.

Despite arguably being one of the most popular and beloved hosts on Food Network, his restaurants haven’t fared as well from critics. 

His now-closed Time’s Square restaurant, Guy Fieri’s American Kitchen & Bar, was infamously savaged by the New York Times in a 2012 review.
