    I saw this, and since I love cooking, thought it to be fun. Well, they had one older rather heavy set guy that did nothing and when he did he was eating. They have one other gal, and she seems like she is ready to go postal

    I tried watching it once, but I couldn't stand how hateful the guy was to everyone. I know they were making mistakes -- sometimes big ones -- but all I kept thinking was, "What a jerk! Who died and made you king?" :lol: :thumbdown:

    I can't stand that guy. He is rude and cruel.

    Some guy last week committed suicide over something Ramsey had said to him.

    All of those "reality" shows are mean-spirited, in my opinion.I would much rather watch Hell's Kitchen, because in the end, someone gets to to run a restaurant, a shared dream for all of them.

    I do not watch the ones where scrawny mean people try to force chubbies into heart attacks, or snarky designers or models critique wannabes. I also dislike the shows like "Cheaters" which only serve to humiliate others. Granted, we can't throw rocks at adulterers anymore, but is the stuff we see on tv any better?

    My DD and I always watch Hells Kitchen. I'm waiting for the blond girl to really lose it one of the times. She seems a little unstable.

    I watched Master Chef, at least the first two episodes. I think that Chef Ramsey is nasty to the ones in HC because it is in hopes of driving the best out of them. I agree that blond girl, is not stable at all, she's going to blow pretty soon

    I agree with those of you who stated the opinion that Ramsey is a mean-spirited, nasty tempered, vulgar jerk. I watched the program a few times and couldn't understand why people submitted themselves to his mistreatment. Watching a man whose vocabulary consists mostly of the "F-word," while he degrades other people, is not my idea of entertainment.

    Very true, if I wanted to watch that. I would go see my ex father in law. He makes Ramsey look like a choir boy.

    Altho Ramsey is a bit over the top, I do enjoy Hell's Kitchen. I think I've seen every season so far.

    Love this show and I also love to cook. Don't feel any of them will be able to run his new restaraunt. They sure could clean up the lanqage.

    I had a hard time tolerating Gordon Ramsey until I saw some of his other shows...the man really does have a good heart...to watch him with his children is amazing when you consider Hell's Kitchen! Everyone of those chefs in the Hell's Kitchen competition knows what it's going to be like going in...that's why the show is titled the way it is. One of those "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen" things! ;) That being said...I really DO wish he'd clean up his language...I can understand the occasional f-bomb...have been known to drop one or two myself in my day (when REALLY angry or frustrated with something) but the constant use of it is annoying and distracting.

    Dropping the F Bombs is his signature trademark. If you ever watch him on the BBC channel he does it all the time there too. But he really is a teddy bear. He is really only mean on HK because that's what he is paid for. I have never missed any episode of any of his shows, and he really is a very nice guy. They do this on HK for the ratings also.

    Agreed! Isn't she something! And on the last episode she said 'Watch Out, those &*tches'. I couldn't believe her language! And on TV! She's a nut waiting to explode....

    Tho' he's the chef we see on TV, truth be told, so called professional high caliber kitchens have chefs in them that talk just like Gordon---and worse.

    I certainly don't condone his use of such vile language, it's just sad that these potential winners have to deal with personalities like that IRL.

    I quit watching because of the language. I think he's spot on as he says with his assessments, cooking skills, passion and what he brings with regards to knowledge and mentoring.
