Gordon Ramsay Water Skis Behind Some Buffalo in IndiaHow many TV shows does Gordon Ramsay appear on, anyway? We count four, but maybe we've missed some? ... There's 'Hell's Kitchen,' 'MasterChef,' 'Kitchen Nightmares,' and now -- 'Gordon Ramsay's Great Escape' (Thu., 9PM ET on BBC America). On this new series, Ramsay takes a break from yelling at people in kitchens, in order to explore the home of his favorite cuisine. And the country he heads to is: India.

Now, India isn't necessarily the most relaxing place for a vacation, per se. But it is an amazing country, with a long history and an incredible culture. And as a special bonus, Ramsay shows that he can curse just as much in India as anywhere else.

While touring the country, Ramsay witnesses the ancient sport of "Kambala," or buffalo racing. The race only takes place during a particular time of the year -- and is only done in a wet, muddy paddy field. And to our untrained eyes, it essentially looks like some dudes water skiing while being quickly pulled by two enormous buffalo.

The race is really fast and really impressive, and Gordon does some traditional "Ramsay-esque" cursing while watching it. Here's a sample of his comments: "Holy sh#t!" "That looks f#cking mad!"

Then, it's time for Gordon to ride on some buffalo and do some racing himself. He grabs onto a rope and a tail, and off he goes! Be careful, Mr. Ramsay!
