Gordon Ramsay’s show “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back” has been renewed by FOX for a second season and the first episode is reported (www.imdb.com) to air January 2, 2019. The reality restaurant makeover show features renowned chef Gordan Ramsay driving around the country in his fully-equipped mobile kitchen and training center Hell On Wheels, to save failing establishments all in 24 hours. With social media allowing everyone to be a critic, one bad review could change the public perception of a restaurant and send it spiraling into failure. Before visiting the restaurant in person, Ramsay has surveillance cameras set up to assess the situation. Then, he goes under cover with some locals and eats at the establishment himself. Once the staff sees some footage of their plunders in the restaurant, the clock starts ticking down and the work beings. Not only is the staff re-trained and the menu re-vamped, but the restaurant is also fully renovated. After the 24 hours is up, the restaurant re-opens for business to the public in the hopes that online critics will be pleased enough to give good reviews and bring their business back to the restaurant in the future.
Over the December 7, 2018 weekend, Ramsay checked in at Social – Costa Mesa. Contractual agreements with the show prevent Social from commenting at this time. Stay tuned. We’ll try to share more information soon.
