It seems to me the contestants are very much under qualified in the first place so they dont stand much of a chance in the first place.Giving Ramsey alot to raise you know what.Didnt one of the shows have like a pizza maker and so forth?They dont stand a chance he should have more experienced people like the ones on Top Chef.Now that would be a reality show.And yet I plan to watch tonight.

abusive name-calling is unacceptable any time so i'm with you there, but i wonder if the producers of heck's kitchen want to play it up. ramsey seems to be a decent guy on ramsey's kitchen nightmares. when he gives people **** they usually at least deserve it imo & the rest of the time he seems to be pretty civil.

Absolutely, obiwan. This is appropriate no matter what business we're in.

I looked at the head shots of this seasons He11's Kitchen women on their web site and they look attractive enough, but I can't remember a single one from last year. Elia Aboumrad from last seasons Top Chef did make an impression however.
