I highly recommend this show to anyone who loves cooking,the food network,or just a good ol' competition reality show.
1. Michael - Tattooed chef with experience

3. Jeff - The wimpy crybaby
4. Dewberry - The large gay male who can't handle much
5. Andrew - The loud mouth of the bunch
6. Jimmie - The clumsey oaf
7. Elsie - Ramsey's pick, started with no culinary experience
8. Carol anne - Never worked in a kitchen
9. Mary Ellen - The quiet mouse
10. Jessica - The lesbian headhunter
11. Wendy - The know it all who knows nothing
12. Chris - The arrogant cocky male.
Ok, lets start with some pros.
Extras - I'm suprised a show like this has them. Altough most of the extra's are made during season 4, they are really wonderful. From the HK tour, to Chef Ramsey's take on each of the contestants. The artwork is wonderfully done. We have a shiny, glossy slip cover that fits over the case with the same art. Another pro, the series was perfect for three discs, we are not going to the menu, and find 2 episodes on each disc, but 4.
The theme song has been changed to an annoying tune that I'm not a fan of.
The extras, although great, are very minimal and are over way too fast
I also hate the package type with 2 overlaying discs on one side, and the third on the other side. You must also remove the discs to read the episode synopsises.

The menu design, we have one menu that displays everything. No episode selection screen, well except for on the main menu
The video quality.Read more ›
Anyways... this may be the best reality show I have ever seen. Ramsey may be the best chef in the world... and you GOTTA love his real man personality. Plus... there are times when you see a glimpse of a very sweet man outside of the kitchen.
I love Ramsey and I HIGHLY recommend the show and his books (especially Roasting in Hell's Kithen)
Here's the short list of what I love about this show.
First, there's Chef Ramsay's license to abuse people, within a context of course. The context being that one of these people will win a huge prize that they in all liklihood would never obtain on thier own: their own fancy restaurant.
I look at it like cooking boot camp. Sure, the contestants are being continually cursed and screamed at. Of course, we see many hours of real time condensed to a relatively few minutes each episode, so I wonder just how intense it looks "real time". I guess we'll never know, but it's for a purpose and I assume they knew what they signed up for. There's just something about a frantic, frazzled amateur chef being cursed over messing up the risotto that I find hilarious. How difficult is risotto to make, anyway?
Second, it's a cooking show that really isn't about cooking at all, but about working as a team in a "fish out of water" (and into the frying pan) kind of situation where there's fire, smoke, steam, and screaming. How do normal people react in stressful situations? Some rise to the occasion and discover greatness in themselves while others are exposed for the arrogant blowhards that they really are.
Third, those wonderful obscenities!Read more ›
