Summer TV Worth Staying in for: Hell’s Kitchen

Hell’s Kitchen

Gordon Ramsay ripping mediocre chefs new assholes weekly. What’s not to love? It’s pretty much the same show every year (and often, every week), but I love Gordon Ramsay and I love excessive swearing. And I love feeding my husband material for his¬†Gordon Ramsay impression, in preparation for his Halloween costume. His current favorites: “What are you DOING, you stupid DONKEY!?”, “It’s RAWWWWW!!!”,¬†and “YOU! Come ‘ERE! What did you do to this RISSOTTO?!? I’ll KILL YOU!!!”. I have no recollection of these contestants the moment they’re told, “Take off your jacket, and leave Hell’s Kitchen. Now fuck off out of here.” But who cares? Gordon Ramsay is the best angry British dude on TV and he’s the only reason to watch.

(Ed. Note – although Hell’s Kitchen wraps up this Tuesday – Gordon’s OTHER shows, Master Chef and Kitchen Nightmares are also must-watch shows. Personally, we like it when Gordon yells at people. Even better when he yells at stay-at-home moms who think they are 4-Star chefs.)
