How Guy Fieri Feels About People Dressing Up as Him for Halloween
"You gotta be able to laugh," says the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star
Stars like Chrissy Teigen and Mario Batali have brilliantly recreated the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star’s look for the spooky holiday. There’s even a “Celebrity Chef” costume in his honor available on Amazon for under $15, if you’re looking for an easy option.
So as a dad of two, Fieri is bound to run into to some of his look-alikes while trick or treating, right? “Uh, yeah. Ohhh, yeah,” he told People Now while stopping by our studios to promote his new book, Guy Fieri Family Food.
“It’s funny because Ryder still trick or treats and all my friends’ kids trick or treat so we go out,” he says. “My buddy Paul or Ariel, they’ll pull a wagon behind a tractor and so we sit on the tractor and the kids run back and forth.”
“Every once in a while,” he continues, “the kids will go, ‘Hey, he’s you! Hey, come over!’ and we do a picture and everything.”
The scenario could get awkward for some people, but not Fieri. “I think it’s funny,” he says. “It’s cool. You gotta be able to laugh. You gotta be able to enjoy it.”
