Reader: Guy Fieri is such an irritating douche that he seems to be mocking douches

Jenn Wohletz thinks Guy Fieri is a douche. And she's no hater-come-lately, like many of the folks who read Pete Wells's recent review of Fieri's new restaurant in the New York Times. No, she's been a non-fan since the '90s, and on Friday laid out five reasons why Fieri should get himself to Douchebagistan -- and stay there.

Many readers agreed with her argument. Says E Wilks (who assures us it's pronounced Wilkt):



I've never seen a woman open a such cornucopia of versions of the word douche, but for the occasion of commenting on the Mayor (and bus driver) of Douchetown, Guy Fieri, was a perfect reason for it.

It was great to see that someone else understood that the review put out by Pete Wells wasn't just because the food sucked (although, I'm confident it did). The reason for the review was that Guy Fieri is such an over-the-top, irritating douche that he appears to be mocking douches. The irony is that he unabashedly isn't. It's even more ironic that the bulk of America somehow embraces such douchebaggery to the point that, this yam is now a multimillionaire.

Just when I thought I couldn't despise Fieri any more, she tossed in that little gem about his changing his name from Ferry to Fieri and has the audacity to ask people to pronounce it Fee-et-tee...what a douche!

Jenn a very funny writer, it would be great to see her do more of this type of stuff.

So would we! But in the meantime, watch for another installment of Jenn in Chains today, this one focusing on the Monday all-you-can eat deal at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

I would not go to the degree of calling him a douche... just yet. I do question his culinary career. I'm no fan of his either, never have been. As a young chef and journalist, I just do not understand (nor connect which is rare for me to not no matter who the chef is) the food he produces. There is obviously some people who like his food. In my opinion.jJust from the photos, descriptions and review from Pete Wells NY Times review, I could never see myself ever having the courage to eat at any of his restaurants.

He also refers to himself sometimes as "Guido" Fieri.

@Kenon Lamont Thompson 

Guy Fieri isn't a chef and doesn't profess to be one. He has a degree from UNLV in hospitality management. The Food Network television channel has a reality show/competition entitled "Who Wants To Be the Next Food Network Star?" The competition is open to anyone. You don't have to be a chef to enter. He won first place and part of the prize was a six-episode program on the Food Network channel. This lead to more shows and all that crap.

@Kenon Lamont Thompson For my part, even aside from my feelers about Fieri's douchiness, I found the actual Wells review to be extremely well-written, humorous and telling.

@steveville I can recall a time before Jersey Shore when that wasn't a term of endearment....
