Though Fieri told Koppelman he doesn’t want to bring any negative energy to the table, he also admitted that doesn’t always love the dishes he’s fed on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, as Eater first reported. Koppelman pointed out that avid viewers of the show can tell the difference between when Fieri is amazed by a dish and when he’s…not.
“I’m not selling you a bag of beans, baby,” Fieri said, adding that chefs who have watched the show for years often question if he liked something based on his reaction. “We’ll go to commercial, and they’ll go, ‘Well, did you like that?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah it was good.’ And they’ll go, ‘Well you didn’t go, like, ‘This is off the hook!’ And I’m like, ‘Well, it was good.’”
“I’m like, ‘Don’t be offended,’” Fieri added. “I don’t like every song that’s on the Rolling Stones album. There’s ones that you like.”
I was gonna say, if anyone’s ever watched the show it’s pretty obvious that he doesn’t fuck with all the foods he’s tried. Whenever he’s not going losing his shit it’s clear that he’s just being polite and I’ll be honest …since starting JG we’d be lying if we haven’t pulled the same act before. Not going top blow your shit up and call it awful or whatever but yea something are simply just “good” not great but good.
