One of my guilty summer pleasures returned last night in the form of Chef Gordon Ramsey. There were so many f-bombs last night, I couldn't keep track. I am always amazed at the split personality he shows between the swearing, maniacal lunatic in the kitchen and the smiling, relatively engaging dude who goes to dinner with the contestants.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the two hour premiere last night and wondered if anyone else was a closet Ramsey fan.

I wouldn't say I'm a Ramsey fan, but if you've read Tony Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential" (ironically a former Fox show) and about how much swearing and pressure goes on, then I'm at peace with what he does.

My quick takes:

--Nice to see that there's ONE~! sous-chef and that's it. Hello? Groomed to be a finalist?

--Is it me, or are the "diners" actors? Second year in a row that you have some asshole come up to the kitchen going mano-a-mano with Ramsey. It's so unneeded that it's not funny.

If anyone I worked for EVER spoke to me in that manner, I would kick that sumbitch in the face.

His screaming, and idiotic behavior has made me turn off that show forever. You can't treat people like that.

Socks -- I implore you to go to the library and get Kitchen Confidential; it will open your eyes to what goes on inside a restaurant kitchen.

I think you have some of these wannabe chefs thinking that they're the best and you have them get knocked down a step.

Reality shows are not real life. Every single person in the kitchen knew what they were getting themselves into when they tried out. A bombastic over the top personality sells the show. I have to admit that like Pieman, this show is a guilty pleasure.

And yes, the diners are probably all wannabe actors looking for a free meal and a few more precious clips to add to their reel/resume.

Library?? Whats that?

I guess its probably why I am not made out to be a chef or a Navy Seal. I don't respond well to red faced screaming and insults.
