Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this competitive reality show features a foul-mouthed chef who regularly insults and humiliates the contestants. Those who remain calm under pressure and work through the pain of insults, cuts, and burns are rewarded with an occasional compliment from the raging chef. When out of the kitchen, the contestants drink, smoke, and linger in the hot tub wearing revealing attire.
Female contestants occasionally appear in skimpy bathing suits or dresses.
The chef pushes plates of food into contestants' chests. Cooks sometimes cut and burn themselves accidently.
The chef's insults are full of foul language, and the contestants curse often as well. All severe cursing is bleeped and mouths are fuzzed over. Words like "hell" and "damn" are frequent.
Due to the show's competetive nature, contestants are sometimes unsportsmanlike and conniving.
Gordon Ramsay is himself a commodity, and sometimes the show plays this up. Shots of his magazine covers and restaurants appear occasionally.
