Kitchen Nightmares: Gordon Ramsay Says He Is “Too Blunt”

April 12, 2011 03:00 PM by Lisa Princ

FOX’s Kitchen Nightmares Chef Gordon Ramsay was recently snagged on the set of one of his other shows where he admitted he was “too blunt”. What does our favorite culinary guru mean by this? Keep reading for all the details!

The Hollywood Reporter recently caught up with Kitchen Nightmares’ host Gordon Ramsay while he was busy filming his new season of Masterchef in which he told them “I’m too blunt. I can’t pretend. I have to get straight to the point. That’s all.” And the Michelin star chef proved his point when on the set he was presented with a contestant – who also happens to be a UFC fighter attempting to reinvent Japanese cuisine for a less sophisticated palette by rolling braised chicken in rice and calling it “redneck sushi.” Gordon added of the contestant and his dish “I told him, ‘That is absolutely disgusting … an embarrassment to sushi.’ He started frothing at the mouth, tensed his muscles and picked up a cooler and threw it. But what am I going to say to him? I’ve got be honest.”

Mike Darnell, president of FOX’s alternative entertainment said that Gordon’s “tell it like it is” attitude is what makes him so popular as he adds “He’s real and raw. He’s not just a great television personality. That’s how he is when the cameras aren’t rolling: tough and crazy.” Obviously that raw personality works well with viewers as MasterChef was last summer’s top rated new show, Hell’s Kitchen has been broadcast as television’s number one reality show for the past four summers, and Kitchen Nightmares has lifted Fox’s Friday night average by 150%. If you’re a fan of the fiery chef, you will be thrilled to know that Gordon Ramsay has extended his contract with FOX until 2013.
