Guy Fieri Shares Sweet Pics of Son’s High School Graduation

Guy Fieri, the beloved host of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” recently took to Instagram to share a series of heartwarming photos from his son Ryder’s high school graduation. The proud father couldn’t contain his joy as he celebrated this significant milestone in his youngest son’s life.

In the first photo, Guy is seen posing with his wife, Lori Fieri, and their two sons, Hunter, 27, and Ryder, 18. The family looked elated as they marked Ryder’s achievement. Another photo captured Ryder among his classmates, proudly donning his cap and gown. The final slide featured a touching selfie of Guy and Ryder, both beaming with pride.

“So proud of @_ryderfieri,” Guy wrote in the caption. “Wow, what a great high school career!! 3.7 GPA, basketball for 4 years and lacrosse senior year. Love you, son!”

Guy and Lori Fieri have been married since 1995 and share two sons: Hunter, born in 1996, and Ryder, born in 2005. The couple also took in Guy’s nephew, Jules, after the death of Guy’s sister Morgan in 2011, raising him as their own.

The Fieri family has been a staple on Guy’s various television shows, including “Guy’s Family Road Trip” and “Guy’s All-American Road Trip” on Food Network, as well as “Guy! Hawaiian Style” on Discovery+. Their close-knit bond is evident in every episode, showcasing their adventures and culinary exploits.

In a September 2022 interview with People, Guy revealed that his family has been his inspiration for adopting healthier habits. “I’ve changed my lifestyle in the last couple of years — what I eat, when I eat, how I eat. I don’t want to be one of those guys that burns up through the tunnel,” he explained. “I’m in better shape now than I was when I was 30. I don’t want to die young. I want to be around for my kids. I want to be around for Hunter and Ryder’s kids.”

Guy Fieri is also among the celebrities who have publicly stated that their children won’t automatically inherit their wealth. “I’ve told them the same thing my dad told me. My dad says, ‘When I die, you can expect that I’m going to die broke, and you’re going to be paying for the funeral,’” Guy shared with Fox News in December 2023. “And I told my boys, ‘None of this that I’ve been building are you going to get unless you come and take it from me.’”

Guy has set specific educational requirements for his sons to meet before they can benefit from his hard work. “Shaq said it best. Shaq said, ‘If you want this cheese, you got to get two degrees.’ Well, my two degrees mean, you know, postgraduate,” he explained.

Hunter Fieri, the older of the two brothers, has already embarked on his educational journey. Born on August 13, 1996, Hunter followed in his father’s footsteps, developing a passion for cooking. He worked at Guy’s chain restaurants, Johnny Garlic’s and Tex Wasabi’s, and even started his own mobile pizza business, Kulinary Gangstas, while in high school.

Hunter graduated high school in 2015 and attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, for its hospitality program. He interned for Caesars Entertainment group, gaining experience in restaurants run by Bobby Flay and Gordon Ramsay. Hunter is currently pursuing his master’s degree at the University of Miami.

In a February 2024 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Guy reiterated his stance on not passing on his fortune unless his sons meet his educational standards. “I told them, if these guys want it, they gotta give me two degrees,” he said. “Two post-grad and then they can go after it. But they’re gonna run this show. I will be out folks.”

Ryder, much like his older brother, has also excelled in both academics and sports. Born on December 31, 2005, Ryder played basketball all four years of high school and lacrosse in his senior year. He graduated with a 3.7 GPA and plans to attend San Diego State University in the fall of 2024 to study hospitality.

Guy has always emphasized the importance of responsibility and hard work to his sons. He set rules for their first cars, requiring them to prove their driving skills before buying their own vehicles. Ryder’s first car was his grandparents’ old, used Chrysler minivan, which he drove for a year without any incidents before earning the right to buy his own car.

Ryder’s high school years were filled with memorable moments, including prom. In April 2023, he shared photos of himself and his date on Instagram, capturing the excitement of the event. Guy also celebrated Ryder’s accomplishments, including being a finalist for the youth service award in 2024.

As Ryder prepares for the next chapter of his life, Guy continues to share his pride and support for his son’s achievements. The Fieri family remains a close-knit unit, navigating life’s journey together with love and dedication.
