Gordon Ramsay Crucifies Chef For Not Knowing How To Boil An Egg
Gordon Ramsay is possibly one of the most intimidating men on reality TV. The high-profile chef takes his role in the service industry very seriously - he does have 16 Michelin stars under his belt, after all. No one could possibly deny his passion for all things food and top notch service. But that passion definitely comes at a price.
I mean, Ramsay isn't exactly the most diplomatic people. His numerous TV shows, most notably Hell's Kitchen, center on the talented restauranteur reviewing the food made by various chefs and, more often than not, completely slating it with his very - erm - "colorful" language.
You would have to be either insane or incredibly confident in your own culinary skills to want to be on the show. Most likely the former.
In any case, in every one of his shows, there are always plenty of people willing to put themselves out there and have their cooking abilities attacked to the absolute max.
In Ramsay's TV show, Hotel Hell, the famous entrepreneur helps people to revive their struggling businesses. And in one particular episode, we get a behind-the-scenes look inside John and Tina's Roosevelt Inn, a bed and breakfast in Idaho.
Take a look at Ramsay tearing John to pieces for his cooking:
Before the cooking even begins, John explains to Ramsay that he and his wife are $1.1 million in debt after purchasing and renovating the property. Tina reveals that she wasn't happy about the fact that John had bought the property, meaning she had to leave her job in a dental office. As a result, not only is their business failing but also their marriage, she explains.
Now, onto the reason we're all here: what does Ramsay make of the food? So Ramsay is presented with a five-course meal which begins with a "sad-looking" shrimp cocktail. Afterward, he is given a taste of the pecan encrusted salmon dish with broccoli and potatoes which Ramsay describes as "dreadful and very dry".
While most chefs would try to take note and hope to improve, John can't stand Ramsay's constant criticism. "I'm going to kill him," he says. "I just want Gordon to take a long walk off a short pier. I want him to fall into a deep pit."
Ramsay then decides to patronize the chef even further by asking him to boil an egg. But, of course, John can't get that right, and it gets a lot more dramatic and fiery moments later when Ramsay starts cursing.
Honestly, you don't want to miss out on Gordon Ramsay ranting and raving, prompting John to get even more defensive. It's comedy gold and Ramsay at his absolute best!
