Chef Ramsay is back and he is bringing the heat! Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for another top 10 Gordon Ramsay outbursts.

For this list, we’ll be taking a look at more of the British celebrity chef’s most brutal, quotable and hilarious verbal beat downs.

#10: Gordon vs. Colleen
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

On “Hell’s Kitchen,” the signature dish challenge is not only a great way to see what the aspiring chefs have up their sleeves in terms of culinary skills; it also gives us a glimpse at their attitudes and egos – especially when their food ends up getting a verbal shredding. Season 5’s Colleen was one chef who couldn’t handle Gordon’s special brand of humble pie. As a culinary instructor with no formal chef’s training, the fact that her food was well below subpar made her an easy target for ridicule. Of course, she did not help herself by questioning the Chef’s manners. Chef Ramsay responded accordingly.

#9: Gordon vs. Abby
“Kitchen Nightmares” (2007-14)

The British superchef has met his fair share of delusional owners throughout his cooking career, but one of his fiercest opponents was Down City owner Abby, who took stubbornness to new extremes. As Ramsay tried to help her fix her failing restaurant, it became clear that Abby was not interested in his opinion. Their feud reached a boiling point when he discovered the horrific state of her food storage, leading to an all-out war of words where things got so heated that Chef Ramsay was actually tempted to just walk away from it all.

#8: Gordon vs. Keith
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

Losing a place in the finale can be a hard pill to swallow, but most contestants take it on the chin and walk out the door with their dignity intact. Season 2’s Keith is not one of those contestants – although it’s up to you to decide if he kept his self-respect. After losing to Heather and Virginia, Keith can’t contain himself and questions the Chef’s judgment. Unable to cope with Gordon’s assessment of him, Keith accuses Gordon of dropping him in favor of Virginia because he’s attracted to her. His outburst doesn’t go unpunished as he is instantly put in his place. It may not be explosive, but the Chef’s comments are so sharp they may as well be knives.

#7: Red Mullet from Thailand
“Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares” (2004-14)

Before he became a huge hit in the States, Gordon Ramsay was taking on terrible restaurants in the United Kingdom. One infamous restaurant visits was his stopover at the Granary, where the owner could barely control his business and was content in his little bubble, shuffling blame onto everyone else. That is, until Chef Ramsay broke said bubble by letting him know exactly where he’d been going wrong. As you can imagine, this didn’t go down well at all, with the owner even attempting to shift the blame onto Gordon. Big mistake.

#6: Imitation
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

We’re not sure what was going through Boris’ mind when he decided it’d be a good idea to do a poor impression of Gordon Ramsay during one of his rants in the middle of service. Well, unfortunately for Boris, Chef Ramsay has better hearing than he expected cause his little impersonation does not go unnoticed. And, as you might expect, the Chef comes down on him like a natural disaster, and Boris gets to see what a real Ramsay rant looks like up close. Moral of the story, kids: never take the piss out of the world’s angriest chef when he’s trying to do his job – you will regret it. We’re assuming Boris certainly does.

#5: Gordon vs. Raj
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

We’re not sure there’s ever been a bigger donkey in “Hell’s Kitchen” than Season 8’s Raj. From the get-go, the supposed professional chef dazzles both Chef Ramsay and the audience with his stupidity. Between his blunders in the kitchen, that time he ATE THE FOOD and that other time he did drunk karate, he was certainly a standout character. Such a standout character, in fact, he drove Gordon Ramsay – and his fellow chefs – to their wits’ end. Eventually something had to give, which is why Raj’s stay in “Hell’s Kitchen” was a short one.

#4: Rancid Scallops
“Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares” (2004-14)

There’s nothing Gordon Ramsay hates more than chefs who have stopped caring – and that hatred increased exponentially when it leads to him becoming violently ill. In a bid to try and help the failing Bonapartes Restaurant, Ramsay goes to the source and checks out what their cooks are made of, demanding they serve him their best dish. They boast about making a mean plate of scallops, and while they look good on the outside, they’ve actually gone bad. Well, as you can expect, Gordon runs off to wretch in the alley, and he is not particularly happy about it.

#3: Toilet Brush
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

Sometimes, it’s the throwaway insults that are the funniest, and this is no exception. In season four, during one of the worst opening nights in “Hell’s Kitchen,” the Chef makes a last ditch effort to rally the Blue Team, while at the same time laying into the cooks who were at fault for the horrible evening. In typical Ramsay style, he spouts off a range of oh-so-eloquent remarks, insulting every chef in the place with his characteristic rapier wit. But our absolute favorite is his commentary on Louross’ hair. Well, can’t argue with that.

#2: …And She’s Dead!
“Kitchen Nightmares” (2007-14)

From the moment Gordon Ramsay walked in, the writing was on the very pink wall that this restaurant was going down in flames. Clue #1? The owners of Miami, Florida’s Fleming – a place that supposedly specialized in Danish cuisine – had no connection to Denmark. But worse yet, the poor practices in the kitchen in terms of storage, preparation, and overall cleanliness left much to be desired, to the point where Chef Ramsay was forced to take half-eaten plates of food away from customers for fear they’d be poisoned. In fact, some of the food later came out in such a terrible condition that the Chef stated that his deceased grandma could do better. Oddly enough, we don’t doubt it.

Before we reveal our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- Complemented Shit
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

- Breasts on a Hot Plate
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

- Like a Quail
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

#1: Gordon vs. Giovanni
“Hell’s Kitchen” (2005-)

Pressure in the kitchen can make even the most experienced contestant crack. However, under no circumstances does that mean you should attempt to talk back to Chef Ramsay, because you will not like the consequences. After being humiliated and given the charming title of “dickface” by the Chef, Season 5’s Giovanni decides to snap back. The unfortunate result is that Gordon Ramsay quite literally explodes in his face. Kudos to Giovanni for keeping his cool and not curling up in a ball on the floor during this rant-fest; we’re not sure we could handle a Gordon Ramsay that angry and that close. This remains one of his most eruptive outbursts to date, and one unlikely to be forgotten – especially by Giovanni.
