The New Face of ‘Hell's Kitchen’ Not So Hellish Anymore

Gordon Ramsay is a cruel, profane, rampaging jerk which is why the world loves him. (It cant be his food, which most critics consider by-the-book classic French.) So how can you replace a guy like that? Thats the problem the producers of Hells Kitchen faced, and they solved it by bringing in Marco Pierre White, Ramsays former mentor, then enemy. The problem is that, by all reports, White is a changed man, calm and peaceful in his middle age. Even in his prime, he was never as outrageously abusive as Ramsay. We dont think hell be nearly as entertaining.
