Trivia

Owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo were initially able to cash in on the notoriety of their "Kitchen Nightmares" appearance. Their restaurant became something of a tourist attraction, and they even marketed t-shirts emblazoned with quotes from the show ("I speak feline MEOW", "Here's your pizza, go fuck yourself"). But the couple's continued erratic behavior, and a firestorm of criticism on social media, finally forced Amy's Baking Company to close on September 1, 2015. See more »

Quotes

Himself - Host: Well, it's finally happened. After almost a hundred Kitchen Nightmares, I met two owners who I could not help. It wasn't because I didn't want to, it was because they are incapable of listening. And in a short period of time, they've managed to piss off the community and go through over a hundred employees in one year. Samy and Amy continued to blame everyone else, yet their biggest problem is themselves. And I know whatever changes I would've made, they were never going to stick with them and ...

"This is not normal"

Usually with reality TV Shows.. Yeah, I'm about as far away from being a fan as you can get. Kitchen Nightmares is probably the only thing I'll watch in this bracket mainly because unlike most Reality TV hosts Gordon Ramsay (at least here) has a seemingly likable personality and even if some of it is obviously scripted it is still somewhat entertaining. This episode is done in such a way wherein I'm not really sure if that much of it is scripted because of the outcome of the episode.

I'll describe what happens but if you think I'm crawling through this - trust me, I'm not. After seeing a completely crazy dinner service on screen it kind of says that right off the bat that this is not the average Kitchen Nightmares episode because of how little the owners handle criticism, It's almost insane. So of course Gordon Ramsay comes in but the Kitchen is actually clean and they say they want him to say how good the food is. It ends up being a standard Lunch service of Kitchen Nightmares. Then Gordon sees how they operate at a Dinner service and what transpires is... Well, quite possibly the most toxic, insane and crazy Dinner service I've ever seen on the show. Things get so bad that night and the following morning that their skill of not taking criticism is so great that Gordon just gives up.

Amy's Baking Company is probably the most memorable hours worth of reality television I've seen. I personally hate it when things go as off the wall as this (or even less than this) but while it does get really, really toxic it has the distinction of if you're a fan you can't really look away because of what happens and the thought of what will happen next. It's really a marvel! This is a must-watch for fans of this show, if not then I would recommend other episodes before watching this one in case you don't really like the format of the show.
