Television viewers have long maintained a love affair with food. Cooking shows foster our creativity, capture our culinary imaginations, and simply provide some of the best entertainment around. With that in mind, arguably no TV chef has mastered the art of the cooking show quite like the foul-mouthed Gordon Ramsay. Over the course of the last decade, Ramsay has become television's resident "bad boy" chef, and he has a new show coming next year that will use that persona to full effect.
We've just learned that Gordon Ramsay has teamed up with FOX to bring a brand new cooking show to television. Titled The F Word, based upon Ramsay's UK based cooking show of the same name, the series will combine game show and variety show elements into a weekly event. Every episode will follow Ramsay as he pits contestants against each other to prepare food for high profile guests. Expect plenty of cursing and screaming along the way.
Of course, Gordon Ramsay is not stranger to the realm of television at this point. As one of the biggest celebrity chefs in the entire world, he has made a name for himself by bringing a larger than life kitchen persona to the small screen. From Hell's Kitchen, to MasterChef, to Kitchen Nightmares, the man has been a constant television fixture for years, and it looks like The F Word will combine all of the best elements of his persona into one awesome series.
However, there's one aspect of The F Word that sets it apart from Gordon Ramsay's previous television outings -- it's going to be a live series. By bringing the celebrity chef into the realm of live television, FOX has seemingly created an environment in which anything can happen at any moment. In fact, we have a feeling that the network is banking on that.
Although we still don't know too much about The F Word, we're beyond excited to see what happens when Gordon Ramsay once again brings his trademark edge and sense of humor to television. It will all be worth it if he gets this furious while filming the show:
