There are so many reasons why I love being me, and a big one is because I get to speak with people I admire or enjoy thoroughly. Recently, I got to speak with the fabulously articulate and talented Gordon Ramsay, when he took time out of his insane schedule (Honestly, listening to his busy life makes me want to nap.) to speak with a few journalists about the new season of Hell’s Kitchen.

Recently, Gordon Ramsay took the time to chat with a few of us about his newest show, Hotel Hell, which premieres tonight on FOX at 8/7c. He’s going to be tackling hotels and all their issues as opposed to focusing on the usual kitchen disasters.
During the interview, he discussed why hotels, the biggest mistakes, and the show in general. We’ll start with questions from myself and Kyle.
Megan: With your other shows, you were focused on kitchen things. What made you want to branch out into doing hotels?
Gordon: Good question, Megan. I’ve stayed in thousands—literally thousands—and I have a small boutique hotel in London. It’s at Regent’s Park. I think on the back of the ups and downs and the—I suppose the laziness that I started witnessing even coming back from a long day at work or even a holiday with the kids, I always found there was something not quite right within the hotel.
And then, of course, the fortunate positions of these places, because they’re landmark addresses and big buildings, they think that they don’t really have to work as hard as they should do because of their position—so partly, the stuff I’ve experienced and also—scratch beneath the surface. When you see a pristine hotel room. You can find problems anywhere.

Recently, Gordon Ramsay took some time to do an interview with a few journalists about the new season of Kitchen Nightmares
. As always, he was witty, kind, and honest. It’s always a pleasure, so let’s take a look at a few questions.
Gordon’s view on second chances for these restaurants…
Gordon: I am getting tired of giving second chances, but they’re part of the issues that are taking place on a daily basis, and that’s to do with the economy. And so it’s getting harder to be patient to be honest and so it’s my own issues and dealing with regular issues. I’m still trying to open new restaurants as well at the same time, so you’re right.
Do they deserve a second chance? When they are arrogant, obnoxious, and they’re not prepared to listen and they want to cook themselves as opposed to the customers, then, yes, I won’t give anyone a second or a third chance. But there are some sort of prissy distraught, upsetting, and emotional circumstances this year. I think it’s been a bit of a whirlwind to be honest.
