Mario Batali just upped the playful trash-talking ante for the upcoming Asphalt Chef competition against Texan chef Tim Love and Food Network star Guy Fieri. A month ago Batali made fun of Guy Fieri and his association with TGI Friday's, but here he takes digs on Fieri's trademark styling and even dresses up as him. Said Batali, "There's me, Mario Batali, delicious food, Jimmie Johnson, car #48, four-time world champion NASCAR driver. And there's, uh, Guy Fieri and one of those Busch guys. Who do you think's gonna win?"
