Since I am broaching the subject of Kitchen Nightmares I have to say that I like the British versions better than the American. Yes, it is still Gordon Ramsay but the ones filmed in the UK were all done before Gordon became too huge. In fact, I think the first season of the show, Gordon only had like two restaurants and one had just failed dramatically so it was more about helping rather than being an ass and playing to the cameras.
On the first season of the US version there was a restaurant called Campania which I barely remember. I remember the name but until you watch it again, you just go, “I think I remember.” Anyway, the guy was about two weeks away from quitting. I do remember his wife crying on the show and Gordon saved the day. Unlike some of the other places Gordon helps, this one actually is doing great. Therefore it was kind of a shock when the owner, Joseph Cerniglia, jumped from the George Washington Bridge yesterday and killed himself.
He left behind a wife and three kids.
