'MasterChef' - Gordon Ramsay Gets Very Mad About Some Bad PotatoesSteak, eggs, potatoes. Everyone likes these things, right? It's pretty hard to go wrong with these ingredients. Unless you mess up one of the most basic elements.

On 'MasterChef' (Tue., 9PM ET on Fox). contestant David makes "Poached Egg & Steak Over Whipped Potatoes -- With Red Wine Mushroom Sauce.' ... Great! Sounds good! Unfortunately, David ruins the easiest part of this dish: the mashed potatoes.

Um, we don't mean to brag here, but even your current humble 'TV Squad' writer can make really good mashed potatoes. It's incredibly easy. Boil some spuds, mush them up, and then add milk and butter, followed by salt and pepper. It might be the easiest thing to make ... ever. But David can't handle doing it, and then Gordon Ramsay gets mad.

David's steak and eggs were delicious, apparently. But the potatoes were "lumpy," according to Ramsay.

Gordon gets right in David's face about it, too. "Why do you send me .. hard potatoes?" he says. "You screw up -- on the potato."

In case you haven't gotten this yet, Ramsay is very displeased by the whole "potato" thing. ... Will David survive?

Wow, no comments yet? Guess when Ramsay isn't screaming and swearing Americans don't want to watch?
This show seems more in tune with Ramsay's reputation in the BBC shows he's portrayed in. I am liking the fledgling show and hoping it comes back after this first season. It's nice to see Americans being treated to his more normal side. Definitely less hokey than Hell's Kitchen.(so far)
I think I'm rooting for the construction worker to make it all the way through.
