Does Gordon Ramsay have a new show?

Ramsay will pivot to a presenting role on new BBC show Bank Balance. This is a high-stakes, high-pressure quiz show in which contestants try to win a fortune by using their “poise, precision and knowledge”.

If anyone knows pressure, it’s Ramsay, having worked in some of the toughest kitchens in the world and achieving three Michelin stars.

Ramsay told the BBC: “This is going to be epic. It is such an intense game with so much jeopardy to win big and lose even bigger, where the difference between failure and success is always in the balance.”

Ramsay will also launch a television show entitled Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Stars, in which he will scour the country for entrepreneurs and business-driven minds in the food and drink industry.

Kitchen Nightmares

Kitchen Nightmares is one of Ramsay’s most memorable television shows. He tries to save failing, and sometimes disgusting, restaurants from ruin.

Some restaurants have had cockroaches, meat a year out of date and one was even reusing the same oil. Can Ramsay’s new show compete with this modern classic?

Family Fights

This show was well known for destroying family ties. Many family owned restaurants crumbled under the weight of Ramsay’s savage criticism and glaring eye for detail.

A man who had appeared on a previous episode of the show returned and asked Ramsay for a job, prompting a classic Ramsay response: “Do something about your sweating first and I may think about it. It’s like Niagara Falls under your armpits.”

Double Trouble

Ramsay decided to trick a restaurant into believing they were serving him, using a lookalike to fool servers while he sat quietly in the corner in disguise. This allowed him to see how they really treated the rest of the public as they focused their attention on a celebrity.

Hell’s Kitchen

Hell’s Kitchen is a reality show that progressively eliminates 12 to 20 aspiring chefs until there’s a winner. It really is like walking into hell, with Ramsay as Lucifer waiting at the gate.


This show probably holds some kind of record for the most F-bombs used in a single series. Ramsay doesn’t hold his tongue, unloading a torrent of expletives at unsuspecting chefs. In one episode he even punched some salmon in frustration.

Master of disguise

Ramsay is known for liking a disguise. In season four he disguised himself as a contestant on his own show so he could ruffle the other chefs.

Idiot sandwich

Some of Ramsay’s best insults have come from Hell’s Kitchen. This includes putting two pieces of bread on either side of a woman’s head and making her profess she was an idiot sandwich.

Other notable insults include: “This crab is so undercooked I can still hear it singing Under The Sea”; “I’ve never, ever, ever, ever, ever met someone I believe in… as little as you,”; “You added so much salt and pepper I can hear the dish singing Push It” and “my gran could do better – and she’s dead!”

Ramsay’s Twitter replies

Gordon Ramsay’s Twitter replies have become legendary. Fans from across the world send him their culinary efforts in a bid to become singed by his fiery retorts. Does Gordon Ramsay have a new game show? Yes – but what could compete with such great Twitter entertainment?

Ramsay certainly doesn’t hold back!

Ramsay can convey so much using only one word.

Ramsay knows his own internet fame and recreated one of his most famous lines.
