Guy Fieri, Other Food Personalities Face Identity Theft

The fashion world may claim that fakes are never in style, but lately, the food world sure has seen a lot of them. Take Food Network star Guy Fieri, who's living the good life — in three short years, he went from unassuming restaurateur to TV star and TGI Friday's spokesperson. But apparently, his life is looking so good that somebody actually wants to be him. "So check this out," Fieri recently twittered. "Some cat is playin me in KC. Crazy, just for da record. I am home."

Indeed, a Fieri fake was passing himself off as the real Guy at a Kansas City Royals game on Monday night. Sporting the trademark spiky platinum hairdo and Ray-Ban sunglasses, the faux Fieri even managed to get interviewed by a Fox Sports Net reporter. Check out the footage when you


Fieri's identity is not the only one to be highly sought-after. The online food world has seen several cases of stolen Twitter accounts — or what food blog Eater has dubbed "twidentity theft." New York Times food critic Frank Bruni (@frankbruni) and New York Daily News reviewer Danyelle Freeman (@restaurantgirl) have both fallen victim to twidentity theft. Freeman is taking legal measures claiming trademark infringement.

Do you find this new wave of identity theft to be as bizarre as I do? What are your thoughts on this issue?

Bizarre, no desperate attempt to be somebody else, yes. I imagine he's a real loser in real life. Guy is such a cutie!

When that guy talks, he sounds nothing, nothing like Guy.

that's kind of funny. but if the guy knew ANYTHING about guy - they would know that his platinum spikes are never that perfect - they are always grown out so you see his roots...and his goatee is never that full....
