America's favorite restaurant owners Amy and Samy Bouzalgo of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale will once again face off with Gordon Ramsay on tonight's season six premiere of Kitchen Nightmares. The two-hour episode will air from 7 to 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, featuring "never-before-seen footage" and "an exclusive interview with Amy and Samy" according to the network.
We'll be live tweeting during the show, so be sure to join us on Twitter at @ChowBellaPHX.
The Kitchen Nightmares episode, "Return to Amy's Baking Company," will follow up on what's happened since the first time Ramsay visited the restaurant about a year ago. In the now-infamous episode, the Bouzaglos were shown yelling at customers, mistreating employees, and arguing with chef Ramsay. In the end the shout-y celebrity chef walked out on the couple and their restaurant before completing the makeover process.
Amy and Samy also appeared in an episode of the Dr. Phil show earlier this week. The couple answered questions about their behavior on social media and faced one of their online critics.
"We have to move forward and be positive," Amy said during the show, though it remains to be seen if the restaurant owner is sincere about turning over a new leaf.
The couple also got a few words of advice from Howard Bragman, a public relations professional and television personality. Bragman's main tip to the owners was that they stop responding to negative feedback -- uh, duh -- but we have our doubts they'll be able to follow through.
"If someone comes to attack us, we're like snakes," Amy Bouzaglo said during the show. "You don't poke a snake in the desert."
