Sold

Ok, so I've watched all four episodes now. The structure is exactly the same every time. Ramsay tries the food and then he takes off his disguise and tells the kitchen to close and all the customers to stop eating. He has all the staff and all the customers come outside with him and watch a little video about how dirty the restaurant is. In three of the four episodes he very nicely asks all of the customers to please return in 24 hours to see if the restaurant improves. But there's one episode in Los Angeles where instead of inviting the customers to come back in 24 hours he just tells them to get their valets and fuck off. What the hell?

No, it's usually a fake beard, a hat, and a flannel shirt

So Gordon Ramsay's new show, 24 Hours to Hell and Back, is essentially the same as Hell's Kitchen. The structure is identical, except Gordon Ramsay eats with other people and wears a costume when he tries the food for the first time. And there are clocks in the background for most of the show. And all that the clocks really do is reveal how highly edited the show is. A 15 second conversation takes 15 minutes on the clock, it's fun to watch. But yeah not really sure this show needs to exist.



My wife watches this show, and It's really hard for me to believe that almost every situation in this show isn't staged in some way.

The chef/chefs walk out in almost every show. The owner is bumbling nincompoop at the start, but manages to pull it together by the end.

It's so ridiculously contrived, even for a bad reality show.



Yeah its the same show. The Fox Nightmares/Hell & Back version is unwatchable. The original UK version was a great show.

The American Kitchen Nightmares is often unwatchable, but it is a guilty pleasure. This 24 hours thing isn't even wirth that. It is completely flat, no life at all

We enjoyed the British version a lot better, too. I guess we won't be trying this new show.

The British version is definitely a lot better, you're right. That's an actually good show. Nothing he has done in America should really be described as good, but I've liked just about all of it until now.

We're making our way thru the US seasons of Hell's Kitchen. We're on the last one we've not seen. We're aslo watching Masterchef US right now. Never seen the UK versions of either. For me, he's at his most entertaining when he's actually cooking something. I'll say this for him, he's got to be the busiest fucking celebrity chef alive. He's got 127 TV shows and 59 restaaurants. I don't see how he has time for anything.
