LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Gordon Ramsay is gearing up for his biggest challenge to date – a live show.
The foul-mouthed chef has been given the go-ahead for a live cooking show on FOX, he confirmed during a media conference on Wednesday.
“The live cook-along, yes, has been picked up and I can’t wait for it to go live,” Gordon said.
And, the chef, who is known for regularly calling “Hell’s Kitchen” contestants “donkey,” and finding other adjectives he uses for contenders bleeped out, revealed he has been given an ultimatum before the live show happens.
“No cursing, that’s the deal. So I’m f***ed,” he exclaimed.
But before he gets to the live show, the fifth season of “Hell’s Kitchen” kicks off on Fox, this Thursday.
And, Gordon said he’s getting rid of one of the dishes that has become a regular on the show – beef Wellington.
“I’ve taken it off now,” Gordon said. “I’ve thrown the towel in. I’m so frustrated. That dish cooks itself… It’s cooked … It’s a joy. I’m going to admit defeat on that front and take off the beef Wellington.”
