    It hasn't aired yet. I've been checking the DVR but Chappy's isn't listed yet. Probably a month or more away.

    I guess it's possible they don't air it but I would be shocked.

    Ramsey is a TV personality. Period. Of course these are "rigged" for drama. Real life isn't all that interesting. I like alot of reality shows, but Ramsey's stuff (fox) is pretty silly and over dramatized. You watch any of his BBC shows and while he is hot headed, he is much more likable and low key on them. You watch shows like Top Chef and then watch Master Chef or Hell's Kitchen, the level of competition isn't eve close.

    I don't consider myself naive regarding "reality" tv, but I was honestly surprised they would go to the lengths they did to fake a review of a restaurant.

    The only thing they ever admitted to was telling customers to react strongly to whether or not they liked a dish during the initial dinner services (before Ramsay enacts changes) which leads to a lot of dishes being returned and backups/problems in the kitchen.
