    He doesnt actually do that. They play it up on hells kitchen but hes no more belligerent than the average chef.

    His appearance on Hot Ones suggests that, while Hell's Kitchen may be slightly exaggerated behavior for the sake of TV drama, he does actually believe it builds character to fling abuse at people. I looked up the transcript to make sure I'm not just exaggerating, so here he is talking about one of the three chefs he mentions as having a big impact on who he is today:
    Robuchon was a taskmaster combined with Marco, Tony Bourdain, Guy Savoy, Albert Roux all together and you’ve got Joel Robuchon. Because you know, on the outside world it was this incredible, successful genius. But behind the scenes, oh my god you know from raviolis flying over your head to fucking copper pans to… I used to see ducks flying from one end of the kitchen to the other thinking they just reborn their fucking wings. The only thing that was missing were the feathers. I remember him telling me that the best thing that ever happened to me was the shit that ran down my mother’s leg when she gave birth to me. How do you get up in the morning and concentrate on work the next day on that one then? So for all those beautiful millennials and snowflakes out there trust me, the more you get pushed the thicker your skin, the thicker your skin trust me the higher you’ll go.

    So yeah, that dickhead can go jump in a lake.

    I think he's a bit of an asshole when adopting that angry chef persona.

    But I've also seen how Gordon Ramsay calls out exploitative managers in defense of employees and also is very nice towards children.

    So, he's kinda neutral for me

    The British version of Kitchen Nightmares is like night and day compared to the FOX version. He's not so much mean to people as much as he's dissapointed in them and even the cusses seem more loving in their deployment.

    I started watching Secret City, and it’s really weird seeing Canberra filmed as though it’s Washington DC

    Edit: ugh this dialogue is fucking terrible. Nice to see Marcus Graham again though.

    Double edit: i was gonna give this at least an hour but I’m ten minutes in and I want to drown all the scriptwriters.

    Maybe Gordon Ramsay is a super nice guy in private, but every interview, public appearance (even unplanned moments), everything I've ever seen of him just shows him as a mean-spirited shithead who sniffs his own farts and takes himself extremely seriously.

    At a certain point, the persona just becomes the person and it doesn't matter how he is behind closed doors.

    If you watch the stuff from when he was on BBC you see that he’s generally pretty chill and only got mad when chefs were doing super egrious things, and often he was mad that the chef wasn’t living up to their potential.

    Then he goes on American tv and whoops gotta play up the anger add in horror movie stock sound effects whoopsiedoodle

    I mean, it takes a certain mentality to cultivate a public persona/role of the mean shithead. It isn't the same as an actor taking a role or someone being goofy in the moment. I am exceptionally wary of anyone like Cowell or Ramsay who plays an actual sore on human existence, by choice and under their own name, and gets described by the media and others vested in their success as great behind the scenes.

    It may be turned up to 11 for the camera, but you don't get there unless you already live at a comfortable 7. Plus, the past 3 years have got me pretty sensitive about the damaging effects of reality show monsters for some reason.

    I dunno, I can see having Billy Eichner in the bedroom being pretty much the only thing that could kill the mood with Jon Hamm.

    Finally getting around to Succession. Midway through season two.

    Cousin Greg is obviously the best, but I think the most INTERESTING character might be... Tom? That can't be right, can it?

    I mildly resent that they really make me feel for Tom in season 2, despite him almost certainly being a serial killer
