How much of it will get bleeped though?

And it would be great to see him in Iron Chef, perhaps against Jamie Oliver

I think the URL is a clue to how old that is. The show has already been recorded if it's starting the end of this month.

I read about Ramsey's trip to the US to pitch the show and I'm sure the deal was that it would be toned down for the US market. i.e. less swearing.

Saying that, I would like to see Ramsey battle against Tony Bourdain in an Iron Chef format. That would be entertainment!

I love watching what goes on in his kitchen and his "take no prisoners" management style. I figured he lets off steam as it arises to avoid pent up frustration. If he is upset, everyone in his kitchen knows about it, but imho he is a very good/nice guy, just got to look to the person deep within. He has high standards, so those that are not willing to reach those high standards or drop the ball once too often are going to get "Ramsied".

Thing is, he doesn't allow them to drop the ball even once!

Did you see the poor waiter who was sacked for having a drink of water when the air-conditioning was off - just because a couple of customers may have glimpsed him through the kitchen door...

Gordon had a point about it being inappropriate, but it was clearly a first offence - and on opening night too! The poor chap (who seemed very committed to his work - much more than one or two others on the team) was totally gutted.

I felt rather sorry for him...

NB: Why didn't he sack the guy who was responsible for the air being off - because he couldn't be 4rsed to work out how the system worked (even though this was the job that Gordon had tasked him with) - that guy just got called a string of unprintable names...

I missed that episode, but heard about it. But I doubt he would fire someone for a minor error, but if he explained something and then someone went off and did the exact wrong thing he warned against, I guess Ramsey might be really upset and fire that someone. The episodes are a summary of what happens, there may be incidents or errors that occur off-camera that also play a role in Ramsey's firing decisions.

Having watched his shows in the UK and sworn like a trooper for most of my life I realise swearing is not necessary to emphasise a point. He is brilliant enough without having to resort to that IMO.

Most of them referring to how fat he was if I remember

Ramsay is classic, but I don't think I would want to work for him :scared:
