Gordon Ramsay has stayed at some hellacious hotels, but none as horrible as the one he lodged at this week. This week he made a reservation at Home-tel James Corden and it was hell on Earth for him. The CBS late night host needs to keep his night job as The Late Late Show because running a hotel out of his house is not in the cards for him. There was only one to save this Bed & Breakfast and I agree with Ramsay’s decision.
In all seriousness, Ramsay checks into a hotel on this season of Hotel Hell that it is almost as painful as this one. I am not even kidding, just wait until the second and third episodes. That’s right it’s so bad, it needs 2 episode. Make sure to watch the season premiere on May 24th on Fox.
Yesterday on Hell’s Kitchen, Gordon Ramsay brought a living bison on to the show to introduce to the competing Chefs. He wanted them to see what they would be cooking for him in the challenge that day. I guess Jack knew that his cousins were killed in the name of television, so he decided to get his revenge on everyone. First the 12 year old took a massive pee and then followed it up with a ginormous poop. Thus, leading to Hell’s Kitchen smelling like hell.
Who had to clean up? The losing team who didn’t cook up his family as yummy as they deserved to be.
Poor Jack, I am sure Ramsay found him quite delicious after the impression he left on the carpet.
Late last night, Gordan Ramsay posted a photo (that has now been removed) and said, “Had a blast today with @christinatosi & @chefedwardlee on set @masterchefonfox.” So is Chef Lee replacing Graham Elliot, who announced he was leaving the reality competition cooking show back in December? An email to Fox has gone unanswered, so I don’t know. I am not sure if he is going to be a permanent judge or a guest one on the show, we will just have to wait until Fox announces what their plans for MasterChef and MasterChef Junior.
So who is Chef Edward Lee? The 43 year old Korean-American was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, but a trip to Louisville, Ky changed his life forever. The self-taught Chef bought the restaurant 601 Magnolia and added his own flavor to the place. Since then it has been featured in several highly regarded Cooking magazines. Lee is no stranger to television, he has been featured on Iron Chef, Top Chef and The Mind of a Chef.
Graham Elliot announced on Twitter that he is departing MasterChef and MasterChef Junior, leaving Gordon Ramsay as the only original judge on the cooking competition show.
I am sad to see him go because he brought a certain warmth to the show that the others didn’t. That and I wish it was Christina Tosi was the one who was departing, she just comes off as cold and unlikable to me.
No word who will be replacing him, but I hope it is someone who has the compassion and passion that he has.
Tonight’s MasterChef Junior on Fox at 8p is the frosting on top of your week. Mostly because the 3 Chefs will be covered in it.
Then 3 MasterChef Juniors, who won last last week’s challenge, are given a very sweet one. Jordan, Sam and Jesse have to frost 60 cupcakes in 10 minutes and the one who does the most perfectly will save their Chef from not being covered in the delicious sugary topping. When the time us up, there is only one winner. Technically 2 because one of the Chefs gets to watch his cohort get covered with pounds of frosting.
After Gordon Ramsay, Gordon Graham and Christina Tosi are cleaned up, it is time for the elimination challenge. The young Chefs need to shuck their own scallops and prepare a meal for their bosses with the sweet fish. This challenge is tougher than you think. One of the kids will have problem opening them and another will burn them in the final seconds. Will that cause them to be eliminated or will they do enough to stay in the game?
You will have to tune to find out on episode that is so sweet it will give you a cavity.
Then at 9p over at NBC, it is time for Grimm. Four foster kids, who ran away from the system, kidnapped a woman several years ago and made her their mother. When she is murdered they decide to replace them with Rosalee (Bree Turner). Now, Monroe (David Giuntoli), Nick (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) have to find her before he it is too late. Will they be able to do it? You don’t want to miss this thrilling episode to find out.
Make sure to watch the episode until the end because someone we haven’t seen in while is bacl. Do you think you know who?
MasterChef Junior is back on Fox tonight at 8p and you don’t want to miss the yummiest show on television.
Gordon Ramsay, Gordon Graham and Christina Tosi welcome 24 kids between the ages of 8-12 in to their kitchen and from day one they can cook better than most of us.
Their first task is to get their aprons from a giant Pinata of Gordon Ramsay’s head. Once they put on their aprons, it is time to cook. Their first challenge is making a burger. I highly suggest having hamburgers for dinner tonight because you will be craving one after you see what they create.
As we know there can only be one winner of that challenge, and that person decides what their competitors cook for the elimination challenge. Since this is MasterChef Junior, they come up with an interesting way to tell the kids that they have to cook with marshmallows. I didn’t know until this episode that there were so many things you could do with the sticky yummy goodness. And yet not one of them made the obvious s’mores.
After the MasterChef Seniors taste all of the dishes, it time to send some of the kids home. Out of all of the elimination shows, this is the hardest one to watch. But it is also the sweetest because when the kids are sent home, their competition gives them a hug and tells they are going to be OK. And they will be because look at all they have accomplished in the short time they have been on Planet Earth.
When it comes to the judges, I was nervous about Tosi because she is cold and mean on MasterChef. Luckily she warms up on this show, and is more likable.
But she is only a small part of this show, and the big part is the pint size chefs with a huge cookbook of recipes. The biggest dish this show serves up is a sweetness that no other show on television can cook up.
Finally, I think this year a girl is going to win it all!
Throughout the run of Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsay has seen a lot of disgusting things in many restaurants. So many, they were able to compile a lot of them in a nearly 5 minute video. If you don’t do what he did several times, then you have a much stronger stomach than me. I felt like I was watching a horror movie with a lot bugs because I covered my eyes through most of it.
I know the show is called Kitchen Nightmares, but I will be having nightmares in my bedroom tonight from this montage. Seriously, I am so grossed out now, I will only be eating at home from now on. That is one way to diet.
Believe it or not, Fresh Off the Boat is already airing its season finale on ABC tonight at 8p.
Things have been going so well for The Huangs that Jessica (Constance Wu) and Louis (Randall Park) have been asked to join the local country club. When someone tells them that the couple they forget that they are Chinese, Jessica goes back to her roots and thinks the family should do the same so they don’t forget where they came from. That means the boys go to Chinese school, Jessica is only serving Chinese foods and Louis can’t open a second restaurant.
Will her plan work or will they rebel against her? You have to watch this sweet season finale to find out.
Also at 8p on Fox, someone is forced to leave Hell’s Kitchen in the crappiest possible way. The day starts off normally for the 11 contestants, but then one of them goes into bathroom and things change. That person screams in pain, so much so Gordon Ramsay tells them that they can’t continue on with the competition. What causes the pain, you will just have to tune in to find out. Also to find out if their departure means that no one will go home after another disastrous dinner service.
Also on Fox, but at 9:30p Weird Loners is back with another hilarious episode.
Eric (Nate Torrence) is on a human chess team, and he could be promoted to Rook. In order to get the promotion, he needs to get his next door neighbor Caryn (Becki Newton) to date the man who currently holds the position. She agrees to go on the date, but it is a disaster. Is it so much of a disaster that he will not get to move up to a Rook?
While they are playing Chess, Stosh (Zachary Knighton) sees an opportunity with Zara’s (Meera Rohit Kumbhani) artwork, so he enters her in art contest. Now the two of them are coming up with her persona for her to win. How overboard will they go? You just have to see it to believe it.
I don’t know why people aren’t watching Weird Loners, it seriously Fox’s most endearing comedy in a really long time. Please check it tonight, once you do I am sure you will be as hooked as I am!
Finally, at 10p on Esquire, its time The Runner Up, one of the most important shows on television during this political season. On this episode, Gay marriages are now allowed in North Carolina. Everyone wants to know Clay Aiken’s opinion on it and he isn’t saying much. He explains that he is for it as a gay man, but does not want that to define him while he is running for US Congress. He knows it is more important for him to get elected, and help people once he has job. It might not make sense the way I am typing it, but it will when you watch the show.
Even though Clay’s campaign manager tells him the most important thing to do is raise money for the campaign, he decides to take his message on the road with a bus tour. He thinks it is more important to talk to the people directly than ask for money.
On one of his stops, he will go to a Tea Party gathering. There are so many things he says to the voters there that makes me wish I could vote for him.
So much of what Clay says in each episode, proves what is wrong with our current elected officials. So many people and candidates are just about their political parties that they are not meeting in the middle. Clay wishes there are moderates in office and I am with him.
It isn’t only his wish that people weren’t only defined by their Political Party that makes me think this show should be shown in all schools, it is all the bullcrap that goes into to running for office. This show shows you it is more about the money than why you are running. And you wonder why DC is so f*cked up?
So tune for an eye opening look at how political campaigns are run these days, and see how truly horrifying it is. Remember we are less than 9 months away from the first Presidential Primary, and we should see what the candidates are doing to prep for the election. Hopefully this show will make people think about it so much so that we will be asking for a change! Let’s be honest, there needs to be one and it needs to happen yesterday.
Hell’s Kitchen is back on Fox tonight at 9p for its 14th season. You would think after all of these years that the contestants would know what Gordon Ramsay wants, but they don’t. One contestant actually served him spaghetti and marinara sauce, and the sauce came from a jar. The woman who prepared that meal for him is just one of the many characters we have to look forward to this season. There’s another person on the show this season who will ask him if they can use the bathroom as he is describing what they can expect from that night’s dinner service.
Those are just two of the examples of what is going to happen this season. According to the preview video we can expect a whole lot more. That’s why this show is beginning its 14th season and counting.
From one fire to another, Chicago Fire is back on NBC tonight at 10p and Chief Boden is not. That means that Chief Pridgen (Matthew Del Negro) is still in charge and no one likes him. Pridgen has found out that Casey (Jesse Spencer) is dating his ex-wife, and he is going after him even harder than he was before.
When they are called out to a fire, they are informed that a there is a little girl is trapped on the third floor by the building manager. As they are preparing to get her out, another woman comes running up to the chief and says her uncle fell and hurt his ankle. The chief orders Casey to go take care of that man a few blocks away and leave the scene of the fire. The remaining firefighters are able to rescue the little girl, but what they don’t know is that building manager went back inside to rescue her. When the fire becomes too powerful, he is thrown out of the third story window and is now in critical condition because of it.
Now there is an investigation into what happened and it is a he said/he said thing with the powers to be who are siding with the chief. Will Engine 51 be able to convince them that the chief is at fault or will someone else take the fall for his mess up? You don’t want to miss this tense and exciting episode to see what happens.
Gordon Ramsay has 5 shows on Fox, several more shows all over the world, owns several restaurants and he is a happily married father of four; so when he can get some shut eye he is going to take it. Case in point, here he is taking a quick nap on the set of the fourth season of MasterChef. He shouldn’t stay like that for too long because the contestants might mistake him as a Mystery Box challenge and use him as their main ingredient.
