Guy Ramsay Fieri, more popularly Guy Fieri, was born on January 22, 1968, in Columbus, Ohio.

He has also hosted several food-based shows.

So, the magazine host asked Fieri, “Obviously you’ve cooked millions and millions of meals over the years and I know that you know your um friends with a lot of different people. But is there a celebrity or a friend that you’ve cooked for that ever made you nervous that you were like oh my God I don’t know if I’m gonna get this one right!”

The Emmy Award-winning chef, who won widespread acclaim during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, narrated, “It was the moment I mean II didn’t know if I was gonna make it, so I get invited over to Sylvester Stallone’s house.”
