      Previous Rene Lynch Los Angeles Times Never one to miss an opportunity for a zinger, Ramsay said the special occasion turned out to be "special all right. Especially painful." Mar 28, 2019 Full Review Whitney Pastorek Entertainment Weekly I find this show oddly comforting. As Chef Ramsay himself might put it, "Same s---, different day." Mar 28, 2019 Full Review Andy Dehnart Reality Blurred As always, it was kind of an awkward finale, considering how much time and effort the whole season spent on the chefs' incompetence. Apr 2, 2020 Full Review Michelle Tauber People Magazine It's no Top Chef -- those contestants can actually cook, whereas this group appears to be doing their best not to catch fire -- but it's wickedly delicious fun all the same.

      Previous Regal R 90/100 - the fact that critics gave this show 36% and cry about ramsay being "hostile" is genuinely sad and pathetic. I feel bad for them because they'll never be able to appreciate or do anything of value in life. This show is great. Almost everything Ramsay does is great. It's always funny, even though its predictable it makes for easily digestible comfort food (pun intended). I like knowing Ramsays about to rip someone a new one when they talk back. I also like his softer side which you can see in jr chef. thats how you know his "character" or persona is just that, and he's not just a rude malicious person. he's clearly just passionate about his work and a great entertainer. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the best season of Hells Kitchen. The cast of chefs is the best of the series and Chef Ramsay is at his funniest.
