There's gonna floods of snapchats and tik toks where some lame teenager gets called a donkey, f*cking wanker, and other slurs by a British guy with bad hair.

I doubt you could find one foodie still in the cradle, let alone 16 of them

I'm 18 with 16 years experience.

While the casting website provides few specifics, it asks applicants to share their social media handles, describe their passions, rate their culinary skills, and reveal their phobias.

No way that'll come back to bury you in a coffin filled with spiders.

I bet he doesn't even drive a Mustang or pay $5/month to comment on articles before other people.

The correct answer to that question is that you're afraid of air conditioning, five star hotels, and beer.

I don't understand how Ramsay got so rich?  His shtick gets pretty tiresome after 10 minutes.

it'll probably be great. if you enjoy travel shows, this show is great:

Gordon Ramsay Uncharted Premieres 07 August
Youtube X9TnZ4zIdMw


and it's the only thing by him i've watched.

in it he comes off as human, genuine, and having actual respect for the people and places he visits. i don't actually care about his restaurant career, but he's a fun travel host. most importantly he did NOT approach these places and their foods with a condescending or colonial (or simply racist) mindset. and it's natgeo, everywhere he went was stunningly shot and made me want to visit.

i'd at least check out the new show.

To be fair most restaurants succeed because of business acumen and not cooking talent. Just as most TV shows about cooking succeed because of the personality of the host and not their cooking talent.

That's a good show. I love the Sumatra episode. That chef he was cooking with was awesome.

Another +1 here for that show.  Likewise, the only show by him I've seen.

Welcome to nuFark and all, but that seems like a pretty personal attack for someone posting a disagreeable, but fairly non controversial viewpoint.

Yeah from what I've read and seen restaurants aren't known for being sound investments.  They rarely make money.

He used to to have a show MasterChef Jr. where the kids were even younger. They did a presentation at a TV critics' press tour where the kids passed out ingredients to the assemblage so they could make some kind of dessert balls. The kids were hyper-enthusiastic, but the looks in their eyes suggested that the enthusiasm was driven by terror.

I often wonder about these kid competition shows. Sometimes I think the terror and fear comes not from the show and/or presenters but from their parents. The amount of pressure that these kids are under is insane and I think it's wrong to do that to kids. From the few shows with the kids I've seen the hosts seem really nice and genuine with them. So I think a lot has to do with home pressures.

I wouldn't doubt that at all, they are probably getting pressure from multiple fronts.

yeah, i don't watch ramsay's cooking competition shows, but a long time ago i was really into top chef and chopped, so i do have curiosity about them.

here's the thing- i'm not convinced ramsay is a mean dude in real life. he also has 5 kids of his own (with the same wife), and seems to take that experience into masterchef jr and uncharted.

i absolutely think the idea of the parents putting on pressure is true. masterchef jr is like the national spelling bee, but on cable and with a $100,000 prize!

People think that Ramsey yelling at idiots is the only Ramsey. If they'd ever seen him working with kids (or on travel shows), they'd know that's not the case. He's explicitly talked about the different attitudes he takes when judging adults vs judging kids vs traveling, but that doesn't matter, because lol, memes.

The problem is with the vast amount of "restauranteurs" with absolutely no business acumen that try and start a restaurant.

There's definitely a high failure rate, but if we isolate that to those that have a sense of what they're doing when opening a restaurant telegenic that number will drop significantly.

I imagine it's the same if we lump all small businesses together.

For some of these, it's just what the show is about:
"The kids appearing on MasterChef Junior may be prepped ahead of time"

I spoke to an adult MasterChef contestant at a bar one night. They get lessons on the recipes they are going to make each day. So when someone goes "I've never made this before" it's not exactly true. They also get ratio cards, and I believe cook time/temps for baking challenges. Because how fair would it be for them to challenge non-professionals with some finicky dish when they've never cooked before.

And even as far as his tv shows, I think Ramsey is only really "mean" on Hell's Kitchen, but those are professional chefs competing to be the head chef at some restaurant he has his name on. Plus if you're constantly farking up putting hot broth in par cooked risotto or bringing up food you know to be raw for service perhaps you should be yelled at

Just because you know how to cook food does not mean you know how to run a business.
