Gordon Ramsay on Hell's Kitchen

I saw part of Hell's Kitchen on Fox last night. Just by chance. It's a really trashy show with poor editing and low production values. I guess there's a reason why it's not mentioned very much.

After seeing the show, I'm not sure why Gordon Ramsay has such a bad reputation for being a mean, irrationally angry chef. I can understand why he's so upset on the show. The contestants are awful. I would be yelling at them if I were in charge of a restaurant. Or even if they were in my home kitchen.

One of them took spaghetti out of the trash, washed it off, then re-boiled it ("killing all the bacteria"). She would have gotten away with it if another contestant hadn't seen the whole thing and vetoed the idea. She was actually going to serve it to people! What I don't understand is how she thought she could get away with it at all. There are cameras everywhere.

And she wasn't even the worst contestant. Someone else got kicked off in the end.
