Was always curious about this show when I first heard about it and now I cant stop watching it! The only gripe do have is the narrator, he can be such a drama queen. He literally makes everything sound like its ten times worse than what it actually is. Damn reality TV ;)

I wonder if these contestants actually become better chefs after winning the competition, ‘cause all Chef Ramsay does is scream and yell while calling them a bunch of donkeys, bimbos, fat boys, and idiots.

Love it!

As a Chef I like this TV series, but please Ramsay change the menu, years of scallops, beef Wellington, steak, pizza. Same food format needs changing, less of the staging, I'm in the UK why do they bleep swear words us version? They show this unedited in the UK.

The Top Cooking Reality Shows (Including Hell's Kitchen)

Hell’s Kitchen

Gordon Ramsay has a difficult task here, when he is given 18 people to train so they can become professional chefs. In each round, they are split in two different teams, trying to stay in the game, while dealing with tough challenges they need to face. Even though it is teamwork for the challenges, at the end of the day, it’s every man for himself.

Kitchen Nightmares

Another Gordon Ramsay tv show, but this time it is him travelling around the USA, trying to help restaurants whose business is not doing very well. You might think this is an easy task, but you’d be surprised how stubborn people could be. Also, the conditions in which these restaurants work sometimes make me wonder, how are they even open still.

MasterChef

This show is just a classic and that’s the reason I had to put it in this list. MasterChef is the first cooking show I’ve watched and the reason I even watched the rest! Even though it is yet another show with Gordon Ramsay, he’s only one of the three judges here. Watching amateur cooks as they progress and develop more and more is really satisfying to me. It makes us believe everyone could become a great chef, only if they wanted to.

Nailed It!

To give you a little break from chef Ramsay, I’ve decided to add this show to the list as well. In every episode there is 3 contestants and they try to recreate the given task to the best of their abilities. It is really amusing watching home bakers trying their best and some of them not coming even close to what they should’ve made.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
