Guy Fieri in Diners, Drive-Ins, and Disasters

Food Network host gets raw behind the scenes

As the show begins, the crew grows silent. Fieri appears onscreen and the familiar jingle plays. They laugh at Fieri's jokes. For the first time, they're watching as outsiders.

Then they realize that the new production studio hasn't used their soundtrack. When the credits roll, they see that their names have been deleted.

Some in the room are baffled by the edit, wondering why the network took a completed episode, changed its sound, and stripped their credits.

For Page, it takes all of his strength to remain magnanimous.

"I'm not going to tell you the show sucked," Page offers. "It was different than we did it."
