Guy's Big Set Secret

The sunny California neighborhood you see out the windows on the show? It's fake: Guy's Big Bite is taped in a New York City studio.

Jam Sessions

Guy has enough equipment to keep a roadie busy for days: keyboards, drums, amps, colossal speakers. While he's not bad on the keyboard and drums, he's going to stick to cooking for a living.

Custom Kitchen

After six seasons of Guy's Big Bite, Guy has everything in his kitchen just how he wants it. The latest additions: pullout recycling bins.

Personalized Pantry

Food Network designers customize labels for the pantry. Hunter's Dreamy Creamy Peanut Butter is named after Guy's son.

Secret Sink

Guy has an extra-deep sink, where he hides dirty pans while he's cooking.

Killer Dishes

Producers rule out some of the prop team's flashier dishes because they give off a glare. Luckily, these skulls made the cut.

Freeway Style

Guy is from California, birthplace of the hot rod, and he owns eight cars himself.

Hot Wheels

Designers incorporated the car theme into the set with old hubcaps, license plates and grilles, and Guy's now-famous fridge with a racing stripe.

The Racing Stripe Fridge

The racing stripe on Guy's fridge isn't a custom paint job – it's a vinyl sticker.

Grown-up Toys

The area next to Guy's kitchen is what you might picture for a Fieri-family rec room. It's packed with dude-friendly gear like a bumper pool table, Ron Jon surfboard and 42-inch TV.

Pinball Wizard

The best toy of all is the 1970s Drop-A-Card pinball machine, which still works. Some crew members went a few rounds between takes, but no one was able to top Guy's high score: 8,408 (out of a possible 9,999).

Prize Possessions

Sorry, Guy isn't a judo champion, slam-dunk master or world-class golfer. All the trophies on this shelf are rented from a prop house.
