Top 5 Gordon Ramsay Shows

He may be known as the biggest meanie in the food world, but it’s hard not to find him entertaining anyway. Welcome to WatchMojo and today we're counting down our picks for the Top 5 Gordon Ramsay Shows.

For this list, we’re only considering shows where Ramsay is a host or judge, and we’re not putting one-time specials in the running.

#5: “Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course” (2012)

This popular TV chef may be best known for losing his temper at his underlings, but above all, he’s just a guy who has true respect for good cooking. Many of Ramsay’s cookbooks are bestsellers, and in this television program he tried to relay some of his best kitchen techniques to his fans. It’s all about going back to basics, and becoming the most competent home cook you can be. If you’re a beginner, this is a great show to watch to brush up on some of the most essential skills you need to master for cooking great food.

#4: “MasterChef Junior” (2013-)

“Bad Guy” Gordon Ramsay is certainly not on display in this charming cooking competition show. Inspired by the original “MasterChef” and based on the format of the UK series “Junior MasterChef,” “MasterChef Junior” features contestants who are between the ages of 8 and 13. Their prowess in the kitchen will shock and astonish you, and – on occasion – Ramsay too. You’ll have to pick your jaw up off the floor when you see the intricate and high brow dishes these kids can make, and if you’re not feeling too bad about your own cookery skills, it might just inspire you to improve them.

#3: “MasterChef” [US] (2010-)

Though the “MasterChef” concept originated in the UK, Gordon Ramsay wasn't actually involved with the series, and wouldn't be connected to the franchise until the US version debuted in 2010. Here, Ramsay acts as a judge on this competition show that focuses on finding the best home chefs in America. It’s one of the most popular cooking shows on the air, and for good reason. Unlike the Jr. version, “MasterChef” delves into the backstories of the contestants, giving you a more complete look at who they are, which can give watching the show a totally different experience.

#2: “Hell's Kitchen” [US] (2005-)

Stateside at least, Gordon Ramsay’s vicious reputation came to be because of his demeanor on this show. Though he started off on the UK version of “Hell’s Kitchen”, he has been involved in the American edition since 2005. On the show, he brings in chefs to work under him as they compete to become chosen as the head chef of a restaurant. Ramsay shows no mercy when it comes to their blunders in the kitchen, hurling insults at them that are often as hilarious as they are unrepeatable.

#1: “Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares” [UK] (2004-14)

We may have chosen the American version of “Hell’s Kitchen”, but when it comes to “Kitchen Nightmares”, we know the British original is the superior one. You get to watch Ramsay travel around the UK trying to help out failing restaurants that seem to be doing everything in their power to stop their businesses from thriving. Ramsay’s signature temper is always at work here, and he doesn’t hold back from screaming at even the most charming of elderly family business owners. It’ll make you cringe, but that’s what makes it so addictive.
