Hell hath no fury like an angry chef, and no chef has a sharper temper than Gordon Ramsay when things go wrong in the kitchen. The star of the highly rated culinary boot camp HELL'S KITCHEN returns to FOX with another sizzling unscripted series, KITCHEN NIGHTMARES. This time, Chef Ramsay hits the road, in each episode tackling a restaurant in crisis and exposing the stressful realities of trying to run a successful food business. For restaurant owners in crisis with lazy chefs in the kitchen, temperamental wait staffs and few and unhappy diners, it's time to call in the restaurant industry's equivalent of 911.
Did You Know?
Contrary to popular belief, not all of the failed eateries on "Kitchen Nightmares" closed because of backsliding on the part of the owners. The restaurant industry is volatile, with high staff turnover and low profit margins. In a number of cases the proprietors were already too deep in debt (including unpaid taxes) to remain solvent, despite Ramsay's efforts. Other restaurateurs on the show lost their leases and could not reopen elsewhere, or sold out due to health or other personal issues. One committed suicide. In the end only a few blamed "Kitchen Nightmares" for ruining their businesses. See more
