Looks like celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is taking another hit. When will he ever learn…

This time Ramsay has been caught in the act of hypocrisy to the fourth power by the UK’s Channel 4. The TV network just learned that Gordon Ramsay went shark fishing only 18 months ago, just before filming “Gordon Ramsay’s Shark Bait”, a show about the potential extinction of sharks.

In photos, provided by someone in attendance during Gordon Ramsay’s shark hunting expedition, Ramsay is shown (shirtless) celebrating his capture and kill of a rare shark.

The Shark that Gordon Ramsay Killed
 Just when you thought Gordon Ramsay couldn’t sink any lower, he surprises you with a more horrific act. Well, Channel 4 isn’t having it. Apparently, this was the straw to break the camel’s back. Ramsay's £5million deal with Channel 4 ends this June and insiders say he has “no chance” of getting a similar big-money contract again.

While I’d like to believe Ramsay could learn his lesson from this, I know it’s about as likely to happen as it is for me to sprout wings and fly.

Visit the Daily Mail for more info on this story. See the new post below for the video - but just a warning, it's very disturning.

It looks like Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares isn’t just about the restaurant anymore. According to The Daily Mirror, the Kitchen Nightmares’ star and executive producer has added a number of irrelevant questions to the Kitchen Nightmares contestant application. How much a contestant weighs, as well as their height, eye and hair color are just a few of the questions that have been added. But my favorites of all of them are these:
  • Have you ever had a restraining order filed against you?
  • Does your family have a history of depression?
  • Are you easily upset?

Actually, the one regarding a history of depression seems to be fair.

A friend of mine had filled out an application for Chef Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen (as a joke) and told me that they had similar questions on the application he filled out, which he thought was strange. Considering that Kitchen Nightmare’s is supposed to be focused on the restaurants and not the contestants, asking such personal questions doesn’t seem right.

Moreover, Chef Gordon Ramsay should be focused more on cleaning up his muddied image instead of adding to his laundry list of drama and evil doings.

Are those questions even legal? But then again, does he really care?

  1. Within the shark conservation world Gordon's name is dirt. Unfortunately he made two critical errors here. One was fishing for sharks prior to a show hoping to save them. The second, and this is really where the wet palm meets the forehead with a resounding slap, was to post the video of his two day shark fishing/killing orgy online!

    The man is a complete and utter moron. A well paid complete and utter moron, but a moron none the less, and deserves nothing but heaps of scorn.

    The kill video, on You Tube, seriously Gordon?
