Anonymous12 March 2015 at 05:30I think it's very apparent that this show gravitated towards finding businesses that would create a lot of drama for television, and less towards places that could actually be helped.Look at the Black Pearl and Amy's Baking Company episodes. As the series progressed, the owners got more and more outlandish.Watch the original UK episodes and the USA episodes start looking like a reality TV nightmare. The UK episodes feel more real and humble in comparison. The US episodes feel like they went into asylums and pulled out the patients.ReplyDelete

Friday night's episode of Kitchen Nightmares was a series first: Shouty chef Gordon Ramsay walked out on a restaurant because the owners were too delusional to listen to any advice. Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, the husband and wife team behind Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, AZ, then went ballistic on Facebook, claiming "We will be pursuing action against you legaly , and against reddit and yelp, for this plot you have come together on." The made-for-TV drama of it all — and the general level of over-the-top absurdity — can make you wonder if Kitchen Nightmares is just totally fake. It certainly does seem like some of it is.


bofhen 27 points28 points29 points 5 months ago (2 children)I have all of the British and US episodes. This is the only episode where he says the food is not (one of) the problem(s). There was another British episode where the chef was a highly trained and French. Gordon's complaint with him was the the dishes were too complicated with far too many ingredients but not actually bad. There was a US nightmares episode where he didn't actually dislike the food but found it 'boring'. I also find it interesting that in most episodes he throws a conniption about the lack of cleanliness of the kitchen. "I JUST ATE HERE!!". There were a few episodes where the cleanliness of the kitchen (of lack thereof) is never mentioned and they find some other thing to go off about. I guess it's what makes for entertaining TV. permalinkembedsaveparentreportgive goldreplyAurelia72 8 points9 points10 points 5 months ago (1 child)Also, there was the dessert lady that made good pies, while her boss made shit food. :p permalinkembedsaveparentreportgive goldreply 12 points13 points14 points 5 months ago (0 children)yea ramsey enjoyed her velvet cake I like how he was friendlier in the British Episodes. Seemed like a cool dude willing to help. Over here in the US they made him out to be a dick for entertainment purposes. permalinkembedsaveparentreportreplykermityfrog 1 point2 points3 points 5 months ago (0 children)I loved that episode. It was just a matter of getting the buzz out and advertising. permalinkembedsaveparentreportgive goldreply

rogersimon010 59 points60 points61 points 5 months ago (6 children)I didn't work at the restaurant, but my dad and I ended up being one of the diners you see in the "After" scenes. It was originally a seafood place that the show said was going down hill because of infighting, kitchen incompetence, and the menu which hadn't been updated in like 6 years. We had gone to the place a couple times in the past before they were on the show and it was OK. I mean we did go there more than once, so it wasn't horrible but not exactly 5 stars either. So Gordon did his thing and they remodeled the entire place and put in a totally new menu. We walked into the place and it was gorgeous. And the food had an amazing transformation. But there are a lot of things that happen on set that you do not see in the show of course. Gordon came out to the dining area about 15 minutes into our meal and walked around asking each table about their experience. When he got to our table, I was trying hard not to gush. It was really stressful and when he asked if the risotto was cooked to our liking, I said "It's PERFECT". But I swept my hands apart in a big gesture and spilled my entire glass of water right into Gordon's crotch. He laughed it off and told us not to worry a bit about it. He said if cold water was the worst he got splashed with in the kitchen, it was a good day. He swapped out clothes and carried on as if nothing had happened. He's got that 'pissed off madman' character on the air, but he was extremely personable in real life. I guess that is Hollywood for you. My father beat the living shit out of me with a set of jumper cables when we got home though. He said it was the single most mortifying experience he had ever been a part of other than my birth. permalinkembedsavereportgive goldreply

For most of the business owners on Kitchen Nightmares, Ramsay tries to do the impossible: he tries to turn them into successes. Sure, a very small percent of them can rise to that level. But it’s likely they already had the ability and just needed a kick in the butt to send them in the right direction. But for the majority (at least 60 percent for sure) of those Ramsay provides advice to, they’re beyond help. They shouldn’t be running a business in the first place. And no amount of yelling, F-bombing and shirt changing is going to change that fact.
