Hell’s Kitchen 2 looking for chefs “with varying culinary experience”

Chef Ramsay is returning to FOX, and he needs some peons upon whom he can pee. (Metaphorically, of course, unless this season gets even dirtier than last.)

Open casting calls for Hell’s Kitchen 2 will be held in at least six cities, which started Saturday in LA, and continue today and tomorrow in Dallas and New York. (The show has also posted open-ended Cragislist ads in Chicago and probably in other cities.)

Producers are looking for people “with varying culinary experience, who possess a passion for food and aspire to become world-class chefs. Prior cooking experience is preferred,” the casting notice says. Still, even if you can’t make popcorn by pushing the little popcorn button on your microwave, you should definitely apply, just so Gordon Ramsay has someone to torture.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
