      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 Awful season with the most unlikeable cast yet. No real tension, constant bickering and an unsatisfying winner. Truly a waste of time.
