It Looks Like Guy Fieri’s Son, Hunter Fieri, Is Following in His Famous Father’s Footsteps
Fieri has done so much both on and off the TV screen. And now, his older son, Hunter, appears to be following in his dad’s footsteps of becoming TV’s next big thing.
Guy Fieri has introduced his family to viewers on several occasions
When Guy Fieri first won The Next Food Network Star competition back in 2006, it was impossible to tell how much of a reputation he’d build for himself over the next 15 years. Fieri has since become one of Food Network’s most well-known chefs. He’s the host of the popular DDD (Diner’s Drive-Ins, and Dives), as well as other shows such as Guy’s Grocery Games and Guy’s Big Bite. Fieri also owns various restaurants around the country.
Throughout Fieri’s time on the network, his wife and kids have made appearances. He shares two sons, Hunter and Ryder, with his wife Lori, who he married back in 1995. In 2017, Fieri launched a spinoff series, Guy’s Family Road Trip, where his family visited various cities around the country — including plenty of restaurants.
Hunter Fieri has been making more TV appearances as he gets older
Fieri’s son Hunter, the older of his two kids, is 24; Ryder is 15, so Ryder is still a bit young to be carving out a career path. But as time goes on, Hunter seems to be showing more of a growing interest in his father’s food empire. When the pandemic hit last March, DDD began filming at Fieri’s house. He’d test out recipes from popular restaurants, then rate them — and Hunter was often along for the ride.
Now, it appears that DDD has started filming on location again — but Hunter hasn’t let that prevent him from being at his father’s side. Hunter recently posted a photo to Instagram on the set of DDD, which suggests he could be making continued appearances on his father’s show. Either that, or he’s behind the scenes learning the ropes. On Feb. 24, Hunter also posted a photo from behind the scenes of Fieri’s other show, Guy’s Grocery Games — which means DDD isn’t the only show he’s helping his dad film.
Guy Fieri shows no signs of slowing down — but his son could someday take over
Fieri has been on Food Network for about 15 years, but that doesn’t mean he has any plans to slow down. Fieri recently opened pop-up restaurants in various “ghost kitchens” around the country; he’s temporarily taking over restaurant’s kitchens to bring his food all over the country.
Throughout the pandemic, Fieri has also helped raise money for restaurant workers. He even backed Dave Portnoy’s Barstool Fund, which donated money to help restaurants stay in business. Though Fieri’s career appears to be far from over, he could already be grooming the next generation.
