Every season this show gets discussed ad nauseum. After seeing Ramsey however in other venues I think what it comes down to is it's a pure moneymaker for him. His livelihood (his own restaurants) don't suffer from this, he makes a ton of money and he gets an opportunity to yell at idiots! Sounds like a dream job!
Better then most of the comedy shows on TV. People must watch it as it keeps coming back evry season. Master chef show is worse, so is the one With Flay and the chick who poses but can't cook. They are going to back the winner in opening restaurants ????In what country.
I have no patience at all for Hell's Kitchen... I just want to fly through the tv screen and smack some sense into those people. I'm sure they're chosen for their camera-friendliness as opposed to whether or not they can cook and hold their own on the line.
Kitchen Nightmares I do like and I much prefer the British show over the one that is broadcast on Fox.
It's not him , it is the total jerks and idiots that the producers surround him with. Like the next food network star they are not chosen for their ability to cook. Look at some of them who have been chosen in the past.
Sorry for reviving this old thread, but I just started watching the show (ran out of Nip Tuck episodes to watch) and one thing I don't understand about the beef wellingtons is why they don't temp them?
How come you never see any of the contestants using thermometers?
I'm such a sucker for watching this. I blame Kuan for posting a link of that crazy couple from kitchen nightmares.
I guess.. although, I just finished watching 3 seasons, and realized that the entire show is basically a farce. How do you take people from all walks of life, some literally from the ground up, such as waffle house short order cooks, and prison cafeteria cooks, and a nanny, and expect them to learn all the tools necessary in a very limited amount of time, under unusual pressure (cameras, audience, and Chef Ramsey going off in their face 24/7) and at the end of the competition hand them over keys to a restaurant? winning that show does not a master chef make. I can imagine the treatment they get on their first day reporting in as the "executive" chef of the prized restaurant. Honestly, I would not want to be in that position. i could see how the winners would struggle gaining the respect of the staff.
I only read the top 3 because I don't want to spoil the rest of the seasons for myself.
