Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The show was initially a lot more low-key, had a muted color palatte owing to DV cameras made at the time and Guy was a lot quieter.


Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: Guess.
* LullDestruction: If Guy isn't talking, then the stock music is usually blaring.

** And then there's the internal crossover with ''Guy's Grocery Games'', featuring four of the most popular chefs from this series.



* FanNickname: {{invoked}}Triple D, which Guy ends up using in later series.
* ForeignQueasine: Inverted. It's the LOCAL stuff like pig's ear sandwiches and Menudo (pig's feet and tripe) that can stop Guy in his tracks.

* RealMenHateSugar: Averted. Guy loves his pancakes and (deep fried) cinnamon rolls. In general he says he's not a fan of sweets, but he'll still gladly have some if it's offered by his host.

Added DiffLines:

* CordonBleughChef: The Tiolis [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Crazee Burger]] serves an alligator burger with a gravy consisting of dried fruit, heavy cream, and curry. Subverted as Guy actually really liked it (which was a huge surprise to him).
