Gordon Ramsay sued over new show
But it's not the new season of Hell's Kitchen. It's actually a show that hasn't premiered yet.
The former general manager of Dillon's Restaurant in Manhattan has filed a lawsuit to block the airing of Kitchen Nightmares, the new Ramsay show that is supposed to premiere this September on FOX. The man says that he was fired from the restaurant on orders from Ramsay, and that Ramsay actually lied about finding rotten food and actually hired actors to pose as customers so the place would look busier than it usually is. The show has Ramsay coming into various restaurants to make them better.
This could be interesting, because many fans of Hell's Kitchen often wonder if the customers are plants or if the problems the chefs experience in the kitchen are fabricated or exaggerated.
