Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this restaurant-set British reality series comes with a strong-language advisory for good reason, since star Gordon Ramsay makes no effort to temper his infamously foul mouth in other people's kitchens. "Damn," "ass," and "s--t" are used frequently (and are all unbleeped), but nothing is as popular as Ramsay's many variations on "f--k" (that one is bleeped, sometimes so frequently that it's hard to understand the surrounding dialogue). He's also rudely critical of restaurant employees' and owners' shortcomings and doesn't shy away from personal attacks.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


No violence, but a few vomiting scenes as Ramsay shares his dislike of certain dishes. He can also get very hostile and angry.


Anything and everything is part of standard conversation. "Damn," "s--t," "ass," and "hell" are audible, but Ramsay's personal favorite, "f--k," is bleeped.

Social Behavior

Although it's his job to offer criticism, Ramsay is often brutal in his comments about people's failures and tends to resort to offensive language to make his points.


Ramsay is his own brand at this point.
