Gordon Ramsay's second Fox reality show, Kitchen Nightmares, premieres tonight and I want to know if will you be watching. I caught a sneak preview of a couple of the episodes, including the hour long show that airs tonight at 9 pm. Surprisingly, a new gentler side of Ramsay is highlighted, one that is a nice change from the Hell's Kitchen tyrant who yells expletives every three seconds.
In Kitchen Nightmares, Ramsay isn't the nightmare. This time it's the arrogant, lazy, and ignorant restaurant owners, managers, and chefs. Similar to Ty Pennington in Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Ramsay comes across as heroic — he saves the burnt out sister from breakdown, gives the tired cook a new set of stoves, and boosts the self esteem of a son scorned by his father, all while recreating the look and menu of the restaurants.
Why Ramsay would want to go into these hellish, uncomfortable, awkward conditions is beyond me, but it does make for entertaining television. With that said, what do you guys think, will you be watching?
