Gordon Ramsay announces new TV show which promises to be very entertaining
Since making the quick trip across the Atlantic back in the heady years of 2004, Gordon Ramsay has delighted (okay, maybe delighted is a bit of a stretch) us all with his many television shows, his Twitter roastings and his terrifying way of tearing people apart using little more than a few choice words and a British accent. It's what we love him for.
But in the decade or so since Gordon Ramsay made his sweary entrance to pop culture, it's not entirely out of the question that the 51-year-old's presence has gotten... kind of stale. Wait, wait - I know that the insults, rages and roastings will be hilarious until the heat death of the universe, but there's only so many episodes of Hell's Kitchen or Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares you can watch before it all starts to look the same.
No. What we need is a new television show from Gordon Ramsay. Something which combines the manic nature of Hell's Kitchen with the redemptive arc of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, pushing our favorite celebrity chef to his emotional limits, something sure to result in some hilariously insane soundbites.
Wait, what do you mean that's already in production?! Turns out, folks, Gordon Ramsay's way ahead of us on that one.
Feast your eyes, if you will, on the video above, which gives us a behind-the-scenes look at Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours To Hell & Back. It sounds certifiably insane. In this new show, Gordon Ramsay will attempt to take a failing restaurant and make it thrive, and but unlike Kitchen Nightmares, this will all occur in about 24 hours.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that even for a chef of Ramsay's talents and... unique motivational skills, this sounds like a bridge too far, but to aid him in his quest, Ramsay has his own state-of-the-art mobile kitchen, known affectionately as 'Hell on Wheels'.
I think he's missed a trick by not calling it the Ramsaymobile, but he'll move the guest stars of his show into there, where he'll attempt to instil the principles of running a Michelin-starred restaurant. Hopefully with a lot of yelling and swearing.
As you might've guessed, I'm all for it, guys... but is anyone else a little worried for Gordon Ramsay's health here? Some of these restaurants look a lot of work, and there's only so much yelling and cursing you can do in a 24-hour period before you're at serious risk of stress-related illnesses. I hope that Hell on Wheels has a massage table as well as a fancy kitchen, because Ramsay's going to need it.
While this show was announced all the way back in 2017, we had no idea of when it would be making its way to our television screens, but we can now confirm that 24 Hours to Hell and Back will premiere June 13 on FOX. So I don't know about you, but I know exactly where I'll be that day.
Let's be honest: 24 hours is probably not enough time to makeover a kitchen, but I can't wait to watch Gordon Ramsay try.
