Default Hell's Kitchen

Anyone here watch it?

Chef Gordan Ramsey seems like pretty cool guy, yeah he acts like a douche on the show, but i bet in real life the guy is pretty nice... Kitchen Nightmares is another show I like (sort of see his softer side).

Although, before any of this I've never heard of the guy before.

The season is almost wrapped up, just curious if anyone else was following it.

Yeah, I have been watching it. I have watched every season (I think this is season 3).

If you get BBC America, they have old (not the ones on Fox) Kitchen Nightmares episodes and another show he had Ramsey's F-Word. I think they are all pretty entertaining. He has a temper and is not afraid to tell people what he thinks and it is funny how most people react.

I watched the first few seasons and thought it was good ... "Move your ass, donkey!"

I tried watching this season and changed the channel in the first 5 minutes of Episode 1 after he dressed up like a woman. I know it's a Fox "reality" show and all, but come on ......

I love Kitchen Nightmares and his other Brit shows, he comes across as pretty hard-ass but committed and passionate about doing things the right way. Hells Kitchen; can't watch it, hate it.

"Chef Ramsey, Ben took my cookie!"

That show is unbelievable. Some of the people have talent, others are like....yup they added them for TV drama. What boggles my mind, is how poorly many of them perform during service. I imagine quite a lot of it has to do with the pressure of being on TV and all of that, but I also imagine that should go away after like a few days or something.

Like the time he ground up hotdogs into 'Pate' and Catfish Roe as 'Caviar'. There were a few other items. So he gives it to them and every single one of them was like praising him. "Oh the Caviar is not fishy at all" or "That is a very good Pate". Then he does those blind taste tests and only a few items are indeed what I would describe as 'difficult'. I mean the one person ate Turnips and called it Potatoes or something like that. Not only does the texture have near zero similarity, the flavor of any member of that family is so distinct you'd have to be really spaced out not to hit it. Now if he had said 'Rutabaga' well then without being able to see the color, they are quite similar with respect to flavor and texture.

I watch both shows. I like Kitchen Nightmares a little more. They have started to show some clips of this falls season. Looks pretty good. Chef Ramsey is a trip!

I haven't watched it based on the Fox commercials. He comes off like a giant ass it looks like more reality crap. I've seen him on a morning talk show (if I say which one, I'll get ribbed ) and he seemed a decent guy. I refuse to watch reality shows anymore.

I've watched both from Season 1, can't get enough of it. The new show, kitchen nightmare's, is very interesting too. I probably became hooked because they did 4 episodes in my area (long island).

All I can say is I'm glad Jen & Matt are not in the final 2.

agreed, and I'm surprised that Matt had gotten as far as he did...
