  • Ludo is a verbal abuser!

    6.0
    As someone who worked in restaurants for 10 years and put up with verbally abusive chefs, I think it is shameful that this TV show would allow Ludo to behave this way. What an immature idiot he is!

    This show is so unrelatable for most ordinary people. Only the elite eat the stuff I've seen prepared on here. Regular people eat the type of food hundreds of recipe websites cater to -real food we and our families would like. Half the ingredients on this show I've never heard of and they don't explain a thing to the viewer. People like Bourdain go around the world eating any and everything, but I doubt most viewers appreciate the tastes and foreign appeal he does. I won't be watching again.moreless

    Season 1 wasn't as good for me because Brian Malarkey came off as an elitist jerk. I used to dislike Ludo on Top Chef Masters but he's just very intense and competitive. Bourdain is just awesome. Cool and brutally honest. Ludo and Malarkey didn't get along and even though Malarkey's chef won Season 1, the chemistry suffered because of him. He was loud and obnoxious and was rude to the contestants. And the worst part was I am not sure he knew it, he's just half a fruitcake. Now they brought in Marcus Samuelsson who too came off as arrogant on Top Chef Masters and The Next Iron Chef but seems like a great guy. The best part of the show is when they argue for their chefs to stay in the competition. Nigella does an awful job of picking her chefs because she feels obligated or is just stubborn enough to only pick home cooks. It's a terrible strategy and this year she picked possibly the worst 4 people you could. She picked a Latina woman who claimed Nigella was jealous of her beauty and then a woman who wanted to do bacon and eggs for Nigella's requested salty & sweet dish. Then she has one person left, she finishes 2nd in a challenge and walks off the stage before it's announced and quit. So she either needs to take a different approach for mentoring or start picking her chefs more carefully. But she is gorgeous and I don't mind looking at her for a couple hours and she's got the biggest heart. I don't want her off the show at all.moreless

    If Ludo is a part of next season my wife and I will not watch! He is an arrogant ass! If you want a celebrity with an edge, find someone else.
