According to TVLine, Ramsay will be trotting out an American version of his Channel 4 program The F Word in 2017. Here’s how Fox has trumpeted their latest outlet for television’s shoutiest chef:
On THE F WORD, foodie families from across the U.S. will battle it out in an intense, high-stakes cook-off. In addition to impressing Ramsay, each team must win over the hearts and taste buds of the diners, celebrities and VIP guests whom they’re serving.
Throughout each hour-long episode, cooking competition meets variety show as Ramsay chats with surprise guests and VIPs in the dining room, hosts live remotes with people from across the country, and appears weekly in unique field segments with fans, foodies and culinary experts.
You’d imagine Ramsay might be burnt out from juggling MasterChef, MasterChef Junior, Hotel Hell, and the beef wellington fuelled orgy of unstable personalities that is Hell’s Kitchen. That’s not the case, apparently.
“We’re really ramping it up a notch with this new live cooking show each week, and I can’t wait for viewers to see the other surprises we have in store for each episode,” beamed Ramsay in the corresponding press release.
As long as there isn’t an on-air proposal, The F Word has the potential to be a welcome addition to the U.S. Ramsayverse. Celebrities like popping up on cooking shows, Ramsay has shown he’s capable of being a sweetheart on Masterchef Junior and couples need shows to agree on while folding laundry. There’s reason to be intrigued.
