Gordon Ramsay The F Word Fox

Gordon Ramsay to Host Fox's Live Cooking/Talk Show The F Word

Gordon Ramsay is already known for his salty language in the kitchen. Now Fox is putting him on live TV with The F Word.

The prolific TV chef will host a new live cooking/variety series called The F Word, debuting on Fox in 2017, the network announced Friday. (The show is based on Ramsay’s hit UK series of the same name.) Each hour-long episode will be part cooking show, with families from across the country going head-to-head in a cook-off, and part talk show, with Ramsay chatting up celebrity guests and appearing in food-themed field segments.

With four (!) other Fox reality shows — Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, MasterChef Junior and Hotel Hell — still on his plate, Ramsay is a very busy man these days. (His shows tend to be great slot-fillers for the network when other Fox shows get moved or canceled.) But the live element of The F Word adds an interesting wrinkle to the formula.

“Gordon Ramsay is not only one of the biggest names in the culinary world, but his expertise, combined with his larger-than-life personality, also make for genuine event television,” Fox entertainment president David Madden said in a statement. “Let’s face it, with Gordon live on television, the phrase ‘anything can happen’ takes on a whole new meaning.”

Let’s just hope that someone makes sure Fox’s “bleep” button is in good working order before The F Word premieres.

    With Ramsay dropping F bombs all the time, this seems more appropriate on cable

  2. Bob says:

    i thought he said he didnt want this? lol oh well, maybe they should cancel Masterchef :X

    It’s not new. Go on Hulu and see previous seasons.

    • Daya says:

      Could these “previous seasons” to which you refer possibly be from the British series mentioned in the article?

    • mary says:

      Like Daya said, those are from the British series that is mentioned above. However from the description of the American version, it doesn’t even seem like it’s “based” on it. I really liked the British one, when they aired it on the BBC.

    Hotel Hell, Kitchen Nightmares, Master Chef, Master Chef Jr, Hells Kitchen. Other British shows as well. So, of course what the world needs is yet ANOTHER Ramsay show. He must have some incredible deal with Fox to do American versions of his UK shows.

  5. Jason says:

    I’ll probably watch since I always enjoy his shows, though Masterchef has always been my favorite.

  6. Karen MT says:

    Yes! I just hope that Fox doesn’t skew it horribly like they did with Kitchen Nightmares. Live Gordon Ramsey, when he’s not being angry, is actually a wonderful thing to see. I was pleasantly surprised whenever I watched the BBC version, because he can actually be very personable.

    Looks like we have a replacement for Rosewood!

  8. HAP says:

    Just another awful Ramsay that I won’t be watching.

    He did this already for Channel 4 in the UK!
    It worked well too! Was funny, enjoyable and flowed well! I struggle to see how it will work with the very fact US Network TV LOVES to shove in commercials, its going to be stop start like a MF!
    And thie UK version was done at 8pm in the evening, before you’re allowed to swear on TV and he didn’t swear once!

  11. Teresa says:

    Missing the FWord from the UK. Glad to see it come back one of my favorites with Gordon. Especially the sexy beginning. Lots of things going on and real people cooking.
