Open Post: Hosted By The Return Of Gordon Ramsay’s “Kitchen Nightmares”
Restaurant owners across America are stress-smoking cigs as we speak because culinary terrorizer Gordon Ramsay will return for another round of Kitchen Nightmares on Fox. This is good news for minimum-age-earning line cooks who really want to feel worthless while getting screamed at by Gordon Ramsay. Although, they could scream back at him, “Instead of yelling at me, try to work on your dismal Kitchen Nightmares success rate of only 16%.”
Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares first debuted in the UK in 2004 and ran for five seasons. The American version debuted on Fox in 2007 and ended in 2014 after seven seasons. The show followed Chef Ramsay as he spent a week in failing restaurants, reading its owners for filth for their shitty food, dirty-ass kitchens, outdated decor, and as always- their refusal to introduce any change to improve their business. Gordon canceled his own show after one restaurant owner pushed him past the edge, according to People:
Despite the series’ popularity, the show ended after a 7-year run. Ramsay admitted to Entertainment Weekly in 2018 that it was his idea to cancel the series.
“I canceled my own show on Fox, Kitchen Nightmares. I woke up in the middle of the south of France after filming a week with a British guy I wouldn’t trust to run my bath, let alone my restaurant,” he told the outlet. “Because he was running a ski resort, he felt like he could take advantage of all those customers because there was nowhere else to eat. He was giving me shit for telling him the truth and I thought, ‘I’m done.'”
The Daily Mail reports that this time around, Gordon will be producing the comeback season of Kitchen Nightmares with his own production company, Studio Ramsay, instead of ITV America, which produced the show before its cancelation.
Canceling the show wasn’t exactly a career-ender cause he’s still going strong with four other shows on Fox: Next Level Chef, Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, and MasterChef Jr – plus a fat total of 58 restaurants in his name to date. And I just wish that Fox ordered two seasons of Kitchen Nightmares because one full season alone needs to be devoted to updating us on the one and only Amy’s Baking Company (RIP)!
