[TV] Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives
« on: August 08, 2010, 05:05:39 AM »

Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (DDD, The Triple D) is an American food television series that premiered in April 2007 on the Food Network. Produced by Page Productions, the program stars and is hosted by Guy Fieri. The show originally began as a one-off special, based on the idea proposed by David Page.

When Food Network launched its HD simulcast of its SD channel on March 31, 2008, later episodes of the series began to be presented in high definition, although it never aired on the former Food Network HD channel.

The show features a "road trip" concept, similar to Road Tasted, Giada's Weekend Getaways and $40 a Day. Fieri travels around the United States looking for the best drive-in restaurants, diners and dive bars.

The cool thing about this show is that Guy genuinely has fun doing it. It's not just "we're doing a show on this city/restaurant so we have to look like we like being here." The way Guy foodgasms...there's just no way you can fake that. :lol:

California teen charged in theft of celebrity chef's Lamborghini
ASSOCIATED PRESS | Wednesday, May 02, 2012 2:36 AM

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. - A California teenager has been charged with the brazen theft of a Food Network celebrity chef's Lamborghini convertible from a car dealership, but his problems do not end there.

Marin County prosecutors on Tuesday also charged 17-year-old Max Michael Wade as an adult with two counts of attempted murder, the Marin Independent Journal reported. Those charges stem from a shooting last month in which someone on a motorcycle fired into a truck occupied by two teenagers.

While investigating Wade as a suspect, detectives followed him to a storage container in Richmond, where they found the yellow Lamborghini belonging to celebrity chef Guy Fieri. The car was stolen in San Francisco last year by a burglar who rappelled into a dealership showroom from the roof.

Teen Who Stole Guy Fieri's Lambourghini Sentenced to Life in Prison for Multiple Crimes
January 27, 2014 at 9:30AM by Kiri Tannenbaum

Remember when Guy Fieri's bright yellow Lambourghini was lifted from an auto dealership back in March 2011? Now Max Wade, the teen who stole the celeb chef's car (to impress his lady friend), has been sentenced to life in state prison.

Auto theft isn't the only crime on Wade's record. According to CBS San Francisco, Wade fired shots at a young couple, 18-year-old Landon Wahlstrom and 17-year-old Eve Dedier, while they were sitting in a pick-up truck in a tiny San Francisco town in April 2012. Wade was convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to life with the possibility of parole. He got 20 years for intentional discharge of a firearm, and for stealing Fieri's $200,000 car, Wade got 16 months.

Judge Kelly Simmons told reporters, "It's a shocking case, and I'm sorry to be the judge who sentences such a young person to such a long sentence. But he deserves it." According to marinij.com, Wade will have to serve 85 percent of his 21-years-and-four-months sentence before he will be up for parole.
