Okay so I admit, I watch Hells Kitchen and MasterChef religiously.
Well last week I was watching an episode of MasterChef where the “pressure test” was to bake an apple pie. If you failed, you would be eliminated from the competition.
Well, there is a blind contestant named Christine who was really besides herself during this. She felt that she was at a complete disadvantage when it comes to baking, because she could not see the pie and know when it was ready. She had to rely on her assistant by asking what color the pie was, but other then that, she had to do everything herself.
She was crying as she brought up the pie to the judges, because she thought for sure she was going to be sent home. But then Gordon Ramsay said that the pie was perfect and scraped the pie so she can hear the crust. He gave her a detailed description of the filling and the bottom of the pie.
Oh my, I started balling and could not stop! The tears were rolling down my face. My husband looked at me like I was nuts, but I couldn’t help it!
Damn you, Gordon Ramsay, Damn you!!!

@mypinkshoes: Yeah! He is actually not the “mean” judge which was what I was expecting when I first started watching the show.

Aww. me too!! I love Gordon Ramsey. I’ve heard he is soo nice in real life and they actually have to edit it to make him look worse. He is just very, very passionate about what he does and I love that!!

@sn2bmrsmntgmry: yes, i agree, he is very passionate about what he does. he only really gets pissed off when someone does something stupid or when people are trying to serve food that is crap. did you see him with the uncooked pork?? i would be pissed off too.

I was fully expecting to read about how he was meant to her and made her cry. That video has me completely choked up. That is so awesome.

I have a friend who was on a past season of Hell’s Kitchen (and won!) and he says the meanness is just heat-of-the-moment passion in the kitchen. He said outside of the tense environment, he is the kindest, most conscientious, funny guy. Total 180 from his TV persona!
