Yes, this MasterChef Junior + Hell’s Kitchen mashup is brilliant

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about MasterChef Junior, besides the talent of its young contestants, is the warmth and encouragement that comes from Gordon Ramsay. That is surprising because it was a total shift from the persona he’d developed over years on Fox.

On the repetitive Hell’s Kitchen and the now-cancelled Kitchen Nightmares, he’s a very different kind of chef than he is on the truly delightful MasterChef Junior.

For proof of that, just watch a 30-second clip Sam Wilber posted to YouTube.

In it, he mashes up footage from Masterchef Junior and audio from Hell’s Kitchen. If you haven’t already seen it floating around the web these past couple days, it’s a must-watch/rewatch.

As sad as it is to see moments such as Ramsay seem to call poor little Oona a “fucking donkey,” it illustrates the difference between the two Gordon Ramsays flawlessly.
