I'm intrigued that it'll be at the HK restaurant. I've been there twice and really enjoyed it. Food is excellent.

My God, the finale of 24 Hours to Hell and Back was scraping the bottom of the barrel. First the drunkard tumbleweed-head manager and the kitchen with a single burner and a giant toaster, to an incompetent moron who can't even memorize the details of one dish.

The single burner was awesome.

So when the drunk fuckup at Bears' Den did his follow-up interview, it looked like he was possibly working at Home Depot, which is amazing for a guy who definitely should not be driving a forklift.

The other thing, when the camera's on him talking, look at the whiteboard behind him on the left. It says something like "Call for historic Gary Ramsee furniture!!" and then a phone number that they blurred out. That was pretty clever of him.

Ramsay makes fun of the CTX oven (lol: he called it a "toaster" ) but if you want to get consistent food and pay cooks less than $12/hour - it's the only way to do it. Most of these concepts would survive if he front-loaded all of the mise-en-place to prep and had the line be scoop and serve onto a conveyor belt oven.

It's no hell, but it does make sense Gordon is gonna be more on Youtube (with actual new youtube content and not simple rehash of old shows) with the pandemic, compared to before.

Came here for this, Gordon week was just great. I love not-yelling Gordon almost as much as I love yelling Gordon.

The MCAU judges are all new but the contestants are familiar so it works out. And 2/3 of the judges don't even suck! But since most of the contestants actually have professional experience at this point, it's almost like Masterchef meets Top Chef.

Also, (news) apparently Ben Ungermann got into even more legal trouble recently, so he was removed from the competition a few weeks ago. Putting two and two together I think that means he does quite well, which is a shame because that chicken foot caramel was simply inspired.

I did. Obviously it had a very different vibe than the usual "Gordon yells at donkeys while also saving marriages" format the show usually takes. Also there's the foreboding knowledge that everyone featured in the show is probably proper hosed by COVID-19.

Life would be simple in the forest except for Cyril Sneer. And his life would be simple except for The Raccoons.

I watched it. I found it weird how, at the beginning, they introduced this one kid as the store manager who barely survived the flood. Then he never showed up again.

My wife and I did, because we live near Ellicott City and have been there a few times. It's only the second 24 Hours I've seen and I don't care for the show - I really only enjoy the older Kitchen Nightmares stuff, and even then it's a guilty pleasure, but had to tune in for the local stuff. Seemed to be pretty much Extreme Makeover Town Edition. Meh.

that's impossible when the contestants see their family in the last episodes they're always crying and bawling as if they had been sequestered for a year. that is PROOF it's at least 24 months of production! real drama for real tv!

They advertised new seasons of 24 Hours (This Tuesday!), Hell's Kitchen, and Masterchef during this special.

I mean not to defend them but I heard* (second hand) that they make them stay up all night and ply them with alcohol and cigarettes and kind of break them down to maximize drama, so by the end of those couple weeks you would probably be kind of relieved and emotional.

I've found some interviews that say the filming period takes six weeks, and is fairly high pressure throughout.

Oh yeah, that I could believe too. Itís either they manipulate the watchers, or the contestants themselves through social engineering.

Been watching some episodes on and off, quarantine giving me time. I've stumbled upon some here and there I had never seen (just watched Dillon's/Purnima and, lol wow).

I was wondering: does anyone know which owners/chefs have been able to have the best turnaround? Not just for the shoot, but in the years after. People that had actual talent/skills but needed the jolt to wake up. I know that most just crash down and fail anyway, either because too far in the poo poo financial wise or lack of self-criticism from the owner(s), but I'm sure there must have been some. Most reviews I've seen for past restaurants that managed to stay open where basically "things went alright after the shoot, restaurant sold to new owners/new commerce blabla". I'm just curious about which could have become the miracle star out of this.

This site will tell you which ones are still open, and of those, you can look at the notes or google reviews to see which fit your standards for a real turnaround
