Hell's Kitchen USA

Not rated

If you've been watching this show then you'll know where I'm coming from with this thought:

To be a successful head chef do you have to be rude and demeaning to your sub-chefs?

Last night, the editing made the audience assume that Michael (the guy who went on to win Hell's Kitchen) only became effective as a head chef when he started being insulting and aggressive towards his team…

  1. To be fair, he never really got to insults. Ok,

    You guys cook like old people fuck

    Might have been an insult, but generated laughter. Though it did work as they started to work harder! When he finally got fired up he tried insults, but ended up with reasonable arguments (not sending out dirty bowls, step it up a gear), and it still worked! I think in Gordon Ramsay's case insulting works, as then the compliments he gives are more effective as well.

  2. so it's all about the range of comments then – if you are incredibly harsh then a little bit of niceness goes a long way, but if you're mainly nice then a little bit of nastiness works to the same effect…so it all boils down to shock tactics…
