****`s kitchenMy wife couldn`t stand chef Ramsey, until she actually watched an episode with me, then she saw what you saw.....Then she thought that i should apply for the show.
This is what most people don`t realise. You have to agree to leave your job for the show for 8-16 weeks(who could go that long without a pay check?) Next, in the best case situation, " you win"..... your prize is a JOB!!! even if the pay is high, you`ll be spending a huge amount of time at this JOB, and being with your family even less ( forget about time for friends or any kind of life).
These people that actually get on this show can only be looking for their 15 min. of FAME and hopeing that it will make up for their lack of talent ( their intelegence is already in question because they`ve signed on to the show).
Personally I think Ramsey`s other show "kitchen nightmares" is a whole lot better....real world resturaunts with real people in a real enviroment. It also covers everything from costs/expense to sanitation, to the value of quality food that will generate business and sustain profitabilty.
