For most of this century, world renowned chefGordon Ramsay has appeared on several British and American cooking and restaurant TV reality shows, including “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Kitchen Nightmares” and “MasterChef.”
Think you’ve seen all the famous chef has to offer?
“Hotel Hell,” Ramsay’s newest TV show, premieres on Fox and will place the hotheaded chef in the role of hotel savior.
Basically, think “Kitchen Nightmares” but for the hotel industry.
Ramsay will travel to a variety of locations—such as San Diego, Calif., Millford, Pa., and Windsor, Vt.—where he will encounter lodging businesses in such disrepair that only a world renowned chef can salvage them.
Inept staff, dirty bedrooms, moldy bathrooms and—gasp!—poor room service are but a few of the conditions Ramsay will have to endure as he sets out to save the world one lodging establishment at a time.
Like he does with restaurant owners in “Kitchen Nightmares,” Ramsay will work with the hotel, inn and bed and breakfast owners and their staffs to whip the sagging businesses into shape.
Presumably, “Hotel Hell” will use Ramsay’s high kitchen standards and place them to effectual use within the parameters of the hotel industry.
Part 1 of the “Hotel Hell” premiere airs tonight at 7 p.m. on Fox 13 in Provo, while Part 2 airs Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
I’ve grown tired of Ramsay’s act on “Hell’s Kitchen.” His insults, tirades and overall boorish behavior stopped entertaining me sometime during Season 4.
I find the Gordon Ramsay that appears on “Kitchen Nightmares” and “MasterChef” to be more affable and tolerable.
If “Hotel Hell” more closely resembles “Kitchen Nightmares” than “Hell’s Kitchen,” it just might make the cut and earn a spot on my DVR rotation.
Whether the show has the chops to earn a second season or not is yet to be seen, but the fact Fox is taking another chance on Ramsay shows the chef has not lost his appeal with American audiences.
