After his seven seasons on American airwaves, Gordon Ramsay, a Scottish celebrity chief and restaurateur, is now ending “Kitchen Nightmares“, his famous restaurant makeover series.
On Monday, Ramsay, while announcing it on the official website, said that his series initially started in UK in the year 2004 on Channel 4, and afterwards shifted to Fox in the year 2007, has achieved several impressive landmarks throughout its tenure.
Ramsay said, “I’ve had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across 2 continents, watched by tens of millions of people and sold to over 150 countries. It’s been a blast but it’s time to call it a day.”
The chief further said that he had met “some of the most weird and wonderful people” during the run of “Nightmares”. He also thanked the viewers for supporting his series. He said that he is “currently filming 4 new episodes, Costa Del Nightmares, for Channel 4 which will be [his] last.”
Ramsay’s announcement also included a cheeky list of the milestones achieved by “Kitchen Nightmares”. According to the list, the series portrayed around 10,197 cases of swearing, racked up as many as four gallons of tears, and also induced Ramsay to utilize 2.3 litres of Pepto Bismol. Surprisingly, all three of these totals are not higher.
Despite the end of “Nightmares”, Ramsay will continue his dominant presence on the television with “Master Chef“, “Hell’s Kitchen“, and “Master Chef Junior“, all ready for a comeback. Moreover, his series, “Hotel Hell” will also be returning to Fox this year on July 21.
