2017 Players Tailgate at the Super Bowl: Media Roundup

The guys at TMZ Sports talked to celebrity chef Guy Fieri ahead of the 2017 Players Tailgate at Super Bowl LI in Houston.

CBS “Tailgate Fan”

The NFL’s biggest event of the year attracts some big-time pregame parties and this past weekend was no different. Host Nick Stevens and the crew of Tailgate Fan made the trip down to Houston to check out the local scene in the lead up to the big game. Read the full story here.


In the middle of the sold-out kickoff party, Fieri explained the Super Bowl/tailgating conundrum: “At football games, you tailgate all year, then you go to the Super Bowl, and they don’t allow tailgating… We didn’t like that, so we thought we’d throw the best tailgate party anyone’s ever seen.” That bash included a BBQ Butts and Brisket station, as well as a Mac Daddy Mac N Cheese stand, and a dessert counter called the Flavortown Finale Ice Cream & Candy Bar. On the lighter side of things, the celebrity chef served ahi tuna poke, made with fish that was flown in fresh from Hawaii. Clearly, no expense was spared at this suped-up Super Bowl smorgasbord.” Read the full story here.


If anyone knows how to tailgate and throw the most epic Super Bowl party, it’s Guy Fieri. He hosted the tailgate at last year’s Super Bowl in San Francisco. Guy told POPSUGAR, “After that experience . . . I had such a good time. I said, ‘Let’s take it to another level.'” So he’s headed to Houston for this year’s Super Bowl (Patriots vs. Falcons) to throw the ultimate pregame party.” Read the full story here.

Yahoo! Finance recently wrote an article, “The $400,000 Way to Do the Super Bowl,” in which they listed some of the most high-end luxuries of taking a trip to the Super Bowl. While not all of the options are necessarily cost-friendly for the average football fan, the 2017 Players Tailgate ranks as the cheapest event with the most bang for the buck.

“Ignore the fact that this event is being co-hosted by Guy Fieri. The Players Tailgate is less about the Buffalo grilled chicken tacos and Mac Daddy Mac n’ Cheese and more about rubbing elbows with big name players such as Landon Collins (NY Giants) and Hall of Famer Walter Jones.” – Yahoo!
