Recently, Gordon Ramsay took the time to chat with a few of us about his newest show, Hotel Hell, which premieres tonight on FOX at 8/7c. He’s going to be tackling hotels and all their issues as opposed to focusing on the usual kitchen disasters.
During the interview, he discussed why hotels, the biggest mistakes, and the show in general. We’ll start with questions from myself and Kyle.
Megan: With your other shows, you were focused on kitchen things. What made you want to branch out into doing hotels?
Gordon: Good question, Megan. I’ve stayed in thousands—literally thousands—and I have a small boutique hotel in London. It’s at Regent’s Park. I think on the back of the ups and downs and the—I suppose the laziness that I started witnessing even coming back from a long day at work or even a holiday with the kids, I always found there was something not quite right within the hotel.
And then, of course, the fortunate positions of these places, because they’re landmark addresses and big buildings, they think that they don’t really have to work as hard as they should do because of their position—so partly, the stuff I’ve experienced and also—scratch beneath the surface. When you see a pristine hotel room. You can find problems anywhere.

I had an amazing weekend, even with internet issues here and there. I was surrounded by good friends and lots of giggles. As much as I was loving the Olympics, I am also really happy they have come to an end—time to get into fall television! I need my primetime schedule back starting with some premieres and finales tonight, so let’s take a look and see what we have to watch.
Megan’s Choice #1
Gordon Ramsay has faced some of the worst restaurants in Europe and the United States on Kitchen Nightmares, but now he’s branching out and tackling hotels in his new show, Hotel Hell. Ramsay is addressing all the issues that plague failing hotels, from poor management, dirty accommodations, and failing kitchens—he’s facing it all. I have seen the two-part pilot, and my goodness it’s intense. There is so much more going on in this one show that it’s a rollercoaster from start to finish.
On tonight’s premiere, “Juniper Hill Inn, Part One,” Ramsay travels to the Juniper Hill Inn in Windsor, VT, a place that’s beauty is undermined by the smell of raw sewage and the owner’s poor treatment of the staff.
To check out Ramsay kick some hotel ass, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hotel Hell @ Clicker.
