    Default Gordon Ramsey

    What do you think of the guy? I thought he was a fucking dick and an exaggerator at first. But I think he's mostly just passionate as hell about cooking and about what it takes to succeed. Also slightly a dick. But mostly passionate.

    He's a cool guy. He literally has like 8 television shows that mostly revolve around him trying to help other people. He's loud and intense, but he's still a good person.

    He's awesome. His shows are, quite literally, the only "reality" shows I will watch.

    His attitude is basically just part of being a head chef. All the good ones I've known have been forceful, intimidating men. You have to be to run a successful kitchen, from what I can see. For one thing there are many unpleasant aspects to working in a kitchen. I have done it before and it was awful. A scary head chef would mean the difference between me getting my work done or sneaking off for a smoke. Can't be just scary, of course, they need to be respected too. Ramsey just does the whole thing perfectly. He's passionate, seemingly, about all areas of the business. The food itself, of course, but also the service for the customers, the working conditions of the staff, everything. He can always see how it all fits together in a way so many people sadly can't. I'd love to work for someone like him.

    I'm not sure how confident I can truly be about his overall character, but for the most part, I can excuse his actions because I see that it's his vision and passion that causes him to tend to act like that. Although that sort of thinking can tend to be abused, which is a pet peeve of mine.

    Default You can't cook for shit

    I love it when he comes to a restaurant and gives everyone shit and fires the chef. He just ruins it for everyone.

    The only problem I got with his shows is the whole reality TV aspect of it. Like when he all the time runs out of the restaurant and speaks to the camera as if he plunged into a friend and did not expect the camera to be there at all.

    I don't care for reality show type of stuff at all generally and haven't watched any of his stuff. But recently I stumbled upon one episode of Kitchen Nightmares which was batshit insane.



    Ramsey seems pretty cool though.
