This will go over well.

I'm waiting for him to call some kid a bell end and their food bollocks (and I probably spelled those wrong)

Ramsay is not always the screaming maniac that most Americans think he is.  He's done a lot of spots on TV where he teaches everyday folks how to cook and he's always been funny and pretty laid back about it.

Submitter--Watch his show, "The F-Word" ("F" stands for food, not f*ck). You rarely, if ever hear him scream at anyone. Plus, in an effort to ensure his children know where their food comes from, each season of the show he has his children help him raise different types of animals, with the full knowledge that they will be slaughtered and eaten when the time comes. He and his children have raised turkeys, lambs, pigs & veal calves.

He's not exactly Jamie Oliver, but I'm sure he can control himself around children.

Is it wrong that I want to try to get my kid on this show? He's almost 10 and is a fantastic cook, with a temper worse than Ramsay's.

That's good to know - I figured that if it wasn't an "act" it was probably not his permanent mood.

TRhat said, I still don't know how people find that behavior entertaining.

Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares is nothing like the American version. There's no dramatic orchestral score, no screaming at the owners, no embellished evisceration of the menu. The entire focus tends to be the food, not the decor and the staff cattiness.

It's actually a little too subdued for my tastes.

Yeah, the differences between his American and British shows are night and day. The American shows are very "real housewives" level tv.

At the Bravo network studios...

"Sir, we green-lighted the Gordon Ramsay reality show with kids!"
"Excellent. Ramsay screaming at a bunch of 12 year olds, making them cry, parents wanting to fight him...it'll be glorious!"
"Actually, sir, Ramsay is very respectful to the kids in the show, never raises his voice, and helps to teach them a valuable life skill that gives them confidence in themselves and a solid outlook on eating healthy for life."
"What? Who the hell is going to watch that? Cancel the show, pull the plug!"

ShawnDoc: Jr Masterchef has been around for years in Austrailia.


I'm in the middle of Season 2 of the adult Aussie version (no spoilers please), I like it a lot better than the US versiom just for sheer number of episode (60+) and some of the different stuff they do (chef head to head, Masterclass, etc).

I do prefer the US version for the eliminations, though... I hate the "you're all getting a recipe to cook" challenges.
 
2013-01-18 04:42:21 PM
I bet he uses his rubber handled whisk for more than sauces.
 
2013-01-18 04:45:45 PM
Good luck Ramsay. Getting kids to prefer good, well prepared, and self-sustaining foods vs chicken nuggets is a futile effort.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, take some time to watch Gordon Behind Bars. He's teaching a group of prison inmates how to cook so they will become more employable once they're released.

It's been my observation that Ramsay's pretty controlled on his UK shows and really overly ramped up when on Fox in the US.

I'm no expert but it may be that he's playing to the camera a bit and injecting some conflict into otherwise boring situations so as to make TV that sells. Just a thought.

Exactly. He does what he gets paid to do. You look at the programs he does in the UK and they're astonishingly different. First time I watched Kitchen Nightmares UK was following the US Version. Completely different scripting and style. US Programming is cartoonish in comparison, the UK Version's just darn good documentary.
 
2013-01-18 07:13:16 PM
I just can't see him around children, but if he can handle it without leaving the kids in tears, I could see it being a way for him to clean up his image and for parents using this as a way of telling kids it's time to make their own damned sammiches.

I actually felt like I learned something from the UK Kitchen Nightmares about how to run a restaurant, and even some cooking tips. Not so much with the US version.

I don't see anything in TFA that indicates that Ramsey would be in, on or otherwise associated with this show, outside of it being a junior version of his show.

Judging the way he is around his own children, I think everything will be just fine. He's incredibly patient with kids, plus as stated earlier in the thread, the UK version of Kitchen Nightmares is worlds apart from the U.S. version.

Actually, watching the UK version of Kitchen Nightmares, I think you could actually edit it up to look like the US version. He certainly swears as much, if not more, in the UK version. Give it faster cuts, the same horrible score, swap out Ramsay's narration for that other guy, and rearrange the elements so that the biggest failures hit just before the commercial breaks, and you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

I'm not willing to say that the ENTIRE difference is in the editing room rather than in Ramsay's demeanor, but there's really nothing keeping him from getting kicked out of some of the restaurants he visits, so I figure they have a bit where the director takes the owner aside and says, "Okay, in this scene Ramsay is going to yell at you a bit for the bad chicken we found in the fridge, so all you have to do is react, and if you can yell back, that'd be great. Okay, ACTION!"

I am sure that his asides are entirely scripted. One restaurant employee on a forum that discussed KN was talking about how the staff were giggling once when he was doing one of his asides and could NOT get the line right. He just got more and more frustrated with himself.

I don't give a fark what anyone says - give me the American Kitchen Nightmares over the UK one any day. Yes, the UK one is good and I do enjoy it, but the American one is insanely entertaining precisely BECAUSE of all the drama. I could watch that stuff all day.

I also just started watching Hotel Hell, which is the same exact thing as Kitchen Nightmares only it involves hotels. Entertaining as fark.

I just hope he doesn't teach the students some new words that they, and their parents, either haven't heard or words that the parents do not want their kids to learn. At least he is better than Adele.
