    If you're a fan of the Food Network or have opinions on spiked hair, then you probably know Guy Fieri.

    The star behind "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" (now 10 years in the running) is known for his taste in greasy food, his ability to catapult restaurants into popularity with a single visit, and, of course, his signature Donkey Sauce.

    But in an interview recently published on Thrillist, Fieri finally revealed what Donkey Sauce actually is...

    He's also into self-improvement books...

    ...and ~staying grounded~.
