The hit show “Kitchen Nightmares,” where celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay tries to help save failing restaurants, will come to an end after Season 7. Many people heard of the show's controversial episodes, like when the British cook visited “Amy’s Baking Company” in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Though he has experienced much success with the series, that originally started in the United Kingdom, Ramsay, 47, announced on his official website that the show has run its final course.
“I’m currently filming 4 new episodes, ‘Costa Del Nightmares,’ for [the U.K.'s] Channel 4, which will be my last,” a letter posted to Ramsay’s official website read. “I’ve had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across 2 continents, watched by tens of millions of people and sold to over 150 countries. It’s been a blast but it’s time to call it a day.”
Ramsay added: “During this time, I’ve visited over 100 restaurants, meeting and trying to help or in some cases failing to help, some of the most weird and wonderful people.”
He also mentioned ABC, where owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo became overnight sensations for their unusual antics. The owners have accused Ramsay of sexual harassment in the past and celebrated when Ramsay was sued for $10 million by his business partner. They've also been outspoken on social media, where they've seemingly waged war against Internet trolls.
“Of course Amy’s Baking Company is a standout along with Bonaparte’s but there were good times too; the lovely sisters at La Galleria and Momma Cherri’s to name but two.”
But we'll apparently be seeing more of Ramsay on TV. The Fox television host assured his fans “Hell’s Kitchen” and “Master Chef” would still continue.
“It’s been memorable!” he wrote. “Thank you for watching.”
ABC, surprisingly, has not publicly responded to the hit show coming to an end -- yet.
