      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 An All Stars season is not a bad idea, but most of the competitors had a disappointing return and even the winner was pretty mediocre. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member this is the worst season I have ever seen of this show. I am an huge fan and have seen tons of season, but this is by far the worse. Instead of focusing on the talents of the chefs, it focused on petty drama and fighting. I could not have been more disappointed with the chefs on and their decisions. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I am so sick and tired of watching these shows where all the chefs think that they're crap doesn't stink. They're just as human as everyone else but they act like they're the only chefs in the whole world I mean really??? if they go back and watch how ridiculous they actually look they would probably not be chefs anymore because they make fools out of themselves and it's so hilarious to watch and I hope they watch after their season is over to see how foolish they actually looked.
