Guy Fieri has a lot of friends in his hometown of Santa Rosa, Calif., and he swears it's not because he owns three local restaurants and a fleet of cool cars, or because he's a TV star. No, he says he's popular for one reason: "I'm the only one of my friends who has a pool."

When the weather is nice — which is pretty often around here — the Fieri pool is open for business, and Guy gets grilling. And not the usual stuff, either: "We're not big hot dog and hamburger people," he says. "We're more eclectic."
