11 Fake Gordon Ramsay Shows (and One Real One)

American audiences simply cannot get enough of this guy


In a move that should come as no surprise, Fox has just ordered yet another series from the network’s culinary powerhouse, Gordon Ramsay. As the chef hinted at last month, the new program, dubbed Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell & Back, will tread similar territory as his old show Kitchen Nightmares. Ramsay will revamp failing mom-and-pop restaurants across America, but this time around, as the name implies, the culinary makeovers will take place over the course of 24 hours, and he’ll be using a 70-foot mobile kitchen to assist with the turn-arounds. Fox has committed to eight episodes of the program, but no word yet on when they will air.

If the new series is a hit (which it probably will be), Fox might even want to add another Ramsay “Hell” show to the pile, so here are a few suggestions:

On the Road to Hell: Gordon revives faded diners along Route 66.
Gordon Ramsays Hell in a Handbasket: The celebrity chef turns around failing delivery businesses.
Gordon Ramsays Burn in Hell: Gordon helps ailing barbecue restaurants.
Hell Hath No Fury Like a Gordon Scorned: Ramsay eats at America’s worst restaurants in disguise and then rips off his mask at the end to give feedback.
Drag Me to Hell With Gordon Ramsay: The chef and RuPaul fix up timeworn drag bars.
Gordon Ramsay’s Hell Is Other People: It’s like Undercover Boss, but with more restaurants and swearing.
Gordon Ramsays Hell Freezes Over: A four-arc special in the Antarctica substation, wherein Ramsay cooks for the scientists and learns about climate change.
What the Hell Happened: Gordon reads selections from Hillary Clinton’s new memoir, on camera.
Ramsays Hell on Wheels: Food truck overhauls.
Gordon Ramsays Hell or High Water: The shouty chef takes over cruise ship restaurants.
Gordon Ramsay’s Disco Inferno: A UK series where the chef breathes new life into ailing discotheques.
