Well, there are Chefs, and then there are Chefs.
Not all are good leaders, or have the same exacting standards as Ramsey, and that's supposedly the focus of the show, finding someone who does.
The leadership part should be there for all, but unfortunately, typically not.
And I am happy to eat the offerings of a lesser talented Chef than Ramsey is looking for, but of course, I go into it with different expectations.
I love the show.
It's great entertainment.
The first season was my favorite, where I saw a little of myself (from various stages of my career) in everyone, from all of the contestants to Gordon himself.
With each season though, it's becoming easier to pick out those they put in just for the entertainment value, with no expectation that they will win.
