Yes, Chef

I'm almost finished with season 3 of Hell's Kitchen and I'm liking the series quite a bit so far. Gordon Ramsay seems to be a fabulous asshole. You know, one of those complete and utter assholes who you just love to watch tear another person to shreds but would probably loathe if he ever turned his guns on you. Hmmm, sorta like Drill Sergeant Hartman from Full Metal Jacket come to think of it. My personal favorite is when he rips the customers who come up to complain a new one. Someone should compile all of those moments for posterity.

There was a really good one that I can't seem to find a youtube clip for where he smacked down some broad and she went all shamu and started flipping over dishes of food. They had to call security after that. Hell, I just spent at least 15 minutes searching and can't find it. I don't even remember what episode it was in or I could go and try to clip it out myself. Oh well. You'll just have to take my word it was pretty sweet.

What amazes me about this show is the number of donkeys they let on it. I'm just baffled that so many idiots get through the screening process. Now, I understand you have to let at least a few flakes in because it makes for good tv when they fail, and fail spectacularly. Still, I can't help but think that when you're down to the final 5 or so, every single individual should have skills of some sort. It's ridiculous at that point to still have these donkeys running around screwing things up so blatantly. Maybe I've just been spoiled by Top Chef where the challenge is more your creativity as a chef and being able to produce something magnificant where in Hell's Kitchen, it's a miracle if these morons can follow simple directions.
