Looks like the rumors that shouty British chef Gordon Ramsay would no longer be doing Kitchen Nightmares are only applicable in the UK — the show's producers sent in a casting call for struggling restaurants across the US to be on the show and get that magical Ramsay "there I fixed it" touch. It's probably all fake anyway, but maybe you'll get a Lobster Claw machine and a new oven out of it? A casting associate writes in:
Does your restaurant need HELP? Are you trying to make some green but still running in the red? Do you and your chef have different ideas about the menu? Or maybe you have a great location, but are unable to bring in the customers?
Restaurant owners should visit this page and fill out the 14-page application (PDF) for a chance to appear on the show. Also, they ask for a video tour. Please to note: establishments must be open at least one year, offer dinner service, and have at least 35 seats.
