    I really wouldn't like to work in the design equivalent of Gordon Ramsey's kitchen.

    No matter how talented you are, there is no excuse for unprofessional behaviour that is verging on bullying.

      I'm not a Gordon Ramsey guru, but his early (English) shows seemed to indicate a passion for excellence and getting that passion into whoever he was critiquing at the time.

      Then the shows became more popular, his insults seemed more motivated for ratings and artificial drama was created just because.

      In short, Ramsey appears to have become more focused on the money that confrontation allowed and less on creating the passion needed for the cook/chef/business owner to succeed at their core competency.

      Did Monterio go through a similar evolution?

        Ha ha, yes they've both become parodies of themselves in an attempt to further their celebrity status.

      To be fair, he quite often works exclusively with bad cooks on TV.

      I haven't seen his shows lately though.

        Worth noting the tone of his American shows are completely different to the tone of his UK shows.

        UK ones were about pulling failing businesses back from the brink, US ones are about laughing at incompetents and drama.
