Freak of the Week: Gordon Ramsay

by Lewis Manalo

This past Tuesday America received another gem from the network that brought it Man vs. Beast. This Christmas, our gift from Fox Television was the U.S. version of Gordon Ramsay: Cookalong Live. British television viewers have had the privilege of watching this program for nearly two years running, and somehow they keep watching it.

In some ways it reads like a more sadistic version of Celebrity Survivor: put a few celebrities in a potentially dangerous environment, and then give command of the situation to a coked-up chef on a talking jag. Just add fire.
