Gordon Ramsay's new TV show looks set to be even better than 'Kitchen Nightmares'
To some people, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares is quite possibly the greatest thing to have ever existed, to others, it's some of the worst television of all time. Yet whatever you think of Gordon Ramsay, there can be no doubt that he is good for viewing figures. His mix of expletive-laden tirades, imaginative insults and incredible food make him a pretty good watch - and it looks like we are set to get another serving of the celebrity chef.
Given his popularity on Twitter, where he tears into people's homemade meals, it feels like we are constantly surrounded by Gordon Ramsay and his "unique" sense of humour. But, if you though Kitchen Nightmares and Hell's Kitchen were intense, Ramsay's newest show looks like a brand new level of stressful for everyone's favourite foul-mouthed foodie.
The show will be titled Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours To Hell & Back and the premise sounds like it is going to be completely mental.
The series has been commissioned for eight episodes and will feature Ramsay going through hell in order to bring failing restaurants back from the dead. Wait, hold on, isn't that just Kitchen Nightmares? Nope. Because unlike Kitchen Nightmares, Ramsay will only have 24 hours to turn these establishments around.
Rob Wade, Fox’s President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials, spoke about the series, saying:
"The restaurant business is one of the toughest there is – and no one knows that more than Gordon. Watching him try to save these businesses, not to mention restore the livelihoods of hardworking men and women, really puts the pressure on – and doing this as the clock ticks challenges him like never before."
Ramsay will have to work around to clock to sort out the restaurants which are one Yelp review away from closure. In that 24 hours, Ramsay will have to make the changes that he feels are necessary in order to save the business, whether that is re-interviewing staff or updating the menu and restaurant interior.
Arguably the best bit about it all is that Ramsay will be doing all of this from a truck. Ramsay's Hell on Wheels is a 70-foot-long truck that unfolds into a kitchen, where he will re-invent the menu and whip the staff into shape. Essentially, Ramsay turns up in a transformer, screams a lot at some unsuspecting chef, throws a few pans and then drives off; sounds incredible.
"With the clock set at 24 hours-and-ticking, I can promise you this culinary boot camp gives a whole new meaning to 'Hell on Wheels,'" said Ramsay.
Ramsay's prominence in America is going from strength-to-strength, with him emerging as Fox's biggest reality brand and receiving his first Emmy nomination for the network's hit kids cooking competition series, Masterchef Junior. However, despite all the success, it seems like Ramsay hasn't lost his wicked sense of humour.
Given that the show contains Ramsay, there's no doubt that it's going to be completely insane, full of swear words and will give birth to fantastic memes involving the inventive insults he comes up with. Now f**k off you bunch of idiot sandwiches!
