Humboldt Last Week: Humboldt’s celebrity chef from Ferndale went viral on the internet once again last week, garnering over 31,000 upvotes on the social site Reddit.

“(Today I learned) Guy Fieri officiates gay wedding ceremonies to honor his late sister,” reads the link to a USA Today article from a few years ago discussing Fieri’s role in 101 weddings in one weekend in honor of his late sibling who was a lesbian.

We were unable to confirm one commenter’s suspicion that Fieri says “welcome to Flavortown" instead of "you may now kiss the bride” to conclude his ceremonies.
