Guy Fieri Has Permanent Snack Attack

Tuesday, March 9, 2010 16:04 GMT

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Wherever TV foodie Guy Fieri goes, snacks follow.

The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host admits that no matter what he’s doing, like driving his kids to school, food is always on his mind.

He dreamt about snacks during his latest hosting gig, the non- food-related Minute To Win It, a game show premiering Sunday (Mar. 14) on NBC.

Though the show is about contestants completing quick, crazy tasks within a minute – not food – a man’s gotta eat.

Fieri tried to “keep it light” by eating sushi on set, but soon found himself craving something a little heartier.

During filming he called in a favor from a legendary burger dive in San Diego named Hodad’s, which he’d visited on his other show.

The restaurant hooked it up by coming to the set and catering for Fieri and the crew in the parking lot while it was raining.
