About the Show



Currently in its sixth season, Chef Gordon Ramsay has trekked across the country to help struggling restaurants keep their businesses above water. In the Season Finale, airing this Friday, May 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Ramsay travels to Easton, PA, to help the failing Italian restaurant Bella Luna. Throughout the season, restaurant owners have turned to Ramsay and his team for one last hope before having to shut their doors forever. Many of these restaurants are beyond repair, leaving Ramsay to face a nearly impossible task. Some will close their doors, others will get back on their feet, but all are calling on Chef Ramsay to wake them up from their KITCHEN NIGHTMARES.


Each week, Chef Ramsay will visit a new establishment with myriad problems – whether these restaurants are empty or dirty or have bad staff chemistry, the owners have nowhere else to turn. He will delve deep into the inner workings of each eatery, from unsanitary refrigerators to lazy and inexperienced staff, in order to diagnose the real problems. When Ramsay brings the issues to light for the owners and their staffs, some immediately will get on board to make the changes, while others will reject Ramsay’s advice. Whether he suggests changes to the restaurant operations, offers updates to the menu or gives the establishment a makeover, Chef Ramsay will do all he can to help these often unsalvageable restaurants. But no matter what Ramsay does, it ultimately is up to the restaurant owners to take his advice and use it – or face closure. 


Season Six kicked off earlier this spring, when the show caught up with the most talked-about restaurant in the series’ history: Amy’s Baking Company in Scottsdale, AZ. In this special edition of the show, Chef Ramsay walked the audience through what happened with Amy and Samy in the past year since the original episode aired and the media firestorm ensued, exposed never-before-seen footage, and revealed an exclusive interview with Amy and Samy themselves.


Also this season, Ramsay traveled to Queens, NY; Denver, CO; Arvada, CO; Woodland Park, CO; and Redondo Beach, CA, to help struggling restaurants stay open. Ramsay has used his five-star culinary expertise and knowledge to help numerous restaurants on the brink of closure get back on their feet.
