I started watching Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares because a podcast I listen to was talking about it and it's very much up my alley
@Gargron seen the one with the pidgeon in the kitchen yet?
@FiXato I'm 30 minutes into the first episode of the first season, give me some time
@Gargron hehe, no sweat :)
I have to remind myself that quite some of this is probably exaggerated for TV, or else I wouldn't dare step inside any restaurant anymore xD
@Gargron which version? the UK one or the US one?
@Gargron serious question: Why?
From my POV he is an arrogant bully paid to shout obscenities and belittle people.
@Gargron In other words, I wouldn't join a Gordon Ramsay masto instance ;)
@rickscully Oh I like him, I find him really sympathetic
@Gargron ok. I think I read you have only watched a few episodes. I hope you change your mind. Ramsay is base and plays to the worst in people. If he were the person he is (pretends to be?) on Masterchef Kids then I might understand. But the fact that he can switch between both personalities tells me that he and his producers enjoy him belittling others and that makes me very sad.
@Gargron That's pretty much the only "reality" show I've ever bothered with because Ramsay really knows his shit, and I love his attitude, and it's truly amazing what literal nightmares some of those places were.
