Guy Fieri is nothing more than a game show winner, and has parlayed that into a successful career as a television presenter of food-related programs.
He's a terrible cook, and anyone with more than a few days' experience cooking on a more than sustenance level should be able to tell that he speaks with the culinary authority of a retarded ferret. So when I read a review of his newest mega-establishment that contains the line "The well-meaning staff seems to realize that this is not a real restaurant", I am not the least bit surprised.
In fact, when any of the current generation of Food Network automatons get skewered in the media, I'm all for it. They all trade on the strength of a brand rather than their food chops. With the exception of Giada De Laurentiis and Ina Garten, they're all a bunch of no-talent hacks.

I didn't find anything passive about the aggression at all.
