he is a jerk, pure and simple, watched once and once only.

Ah, but Babetoo - which of his shows did you watch that led you to that assumption. Frankly, he really isn't a "jerk" in all of his shows.

I like Ramsey but wish that he could stop the F word, jumping around like he has ants in his pants and slapping his hands together :)

He is a funny guy, I don't like the F word in places because he really fawns over celebrities.

BTW Tania, his wife does cook. One of the interviews over here said they each have their own kitchen. She does much of the day to day cooking at home

you watch whatever you can in KZ------and believe it or not that is one of the shows that is on........yes, bleeps and all..........probably 3 years old at least.......that's all we get........if he can turn a restaurant around then good for him..........bad language is unfortunate but it is used in so many different places........I found myself apologizing for using h*** to my doctor's receptionist.......it's just commonplace overseas.....oh well that's how the wheel turns.........I watch the comedy channel here in the states and some of the comedians you can't even understand 'cause half their routines are bleeped out........they might as well clean it up instead...........
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I thank you all for the comments. I have gotten used to the language he uses but in his position who knows what we all would do. The Kitchen Nightmares show, has the owners of restaurant crying and telling him how much they are so grateful he helped them out. I know Ramsay himself actually seems moved by the reaction he gets after making changes in the routine. I can't help but wonder what I would say if I had some of those people in my kitchen. Also, some I definitely feel sorry for the way he does seem to abuse them. (My ex husband was always criticizing me but I wasn't trying to work in restaurant!)

So his wife has her own kitchen. See? There is way to resolve every problem if you can afford it.

I only wish I could maintain his discipline about cleanliness and the dishes I prepare.
