Im surprised anyone would hire a guy like that. I could care less if hes a great chef. If you dont act as a professional, then you dont get a job. Im hoping that someone takes a pan to his head.

And WELCOME to the forum Alixgirl!!!!

WOW - how come MY H ell's Kitchen has been censored, but the thread title was allowed?!
lol sorry to confuse you but, i meant FOX had to put another British guy that yells at ppl like Simon on American Idol. I think its a FOX thing.

Just a thought, but maybe they've done it because the concept for both programmes originated in the UK - and this was a condition for allowing them to franchise the shows?
I know that Simon Cowell 'owns' a percentage of the idea for Idol - and franchised it to the USA.

If the chef you are talking about is Gordon Ramsay (don't know as we don't have the USA version) then he is a GREAT chef. His restaurants are Michelin starred and I've eaten at his places on a number of occasions. If he IS the British chef, then he's opinionated - but with good reason. And yes, he SWEARS a LOT.... BTW, he's a Scot, like me

if he over does it on the swearing it could ruin the show ratings wise IMO.

If it IS Gordon Ramsay then believe me - he ALWAYS overdoes the swearing.

I just watched the show last night. I have no idea who the chef is. Is he really famous?? Has anyone eaten at his restaurant?? It would seem to me that the way he acts, I should orgasim when I eat his food. He's really rough, a bit mean for my taste but I guess if his food is ALL THAT, then he accomplishes his goal...

I did find one thing interesting from the show...that if he has to remake ANY dish at a table, he remakes them all. Does anyone know if this is actually true? Man, it seems like there is a possibility that it would take forever to get your meal...
