Gordon Ramsay's version of Kitchen Nightmares in the United States compared to his series in the United Kingdom is like night and day. You might think you're watching two completely different chefs.
Have you ever had the chance to view them side-by-side?
Kitchen Nightmares uploaded a video highlighting the differences between the two versions of the television series and they're quite noticeable. Both feature the same premise: Gordon Ramsay travels to a struggling restaurant and inspects the establishment to see why it's failing. He then takes a hands-on approach to improving the food and service at the restaurant before driving off into the sunset.
Here's where they differ.
Watch the differences between the Gordon Ramsay shows:
As you can see, the intensity of chef Ramsay's visit is much more distinguished in the US version. Chef Ramsay's mannerisms are still pretty consistent, but the editing and menacing music make him appear ten times scarier. The US hosts and chefs are much more lippy as well.
Arguably, the UK version of Kitchen Nightmares is better than the US. Even so, the American version is slightly more addicting to watch.
Luckily, we don't have to choose between the two.
