Gordon Ramsay Announces the End of Kitchen Nightmares

Bad news for fans of Gordon Ramsay's anger-filled restaurant makeover show Kitchen Nightmares: The TV celebri-chef announced via his website yesterday that "as filming comes to a close on the latest series of Kitchen Nightmares I've decided to stop making the show."

Ramsay's statement goes on to tout the large viewer base the show has garnered over the past ten years it aired. Then, in an odd choice of ordering, he mentions that he also helped people, or at least tried to, to the tune of over 100 restaurants served.

Most notably, he also admits to failing to help people. Of course, he then mentions Amy's Baking Company, which was the one and only time he ever walked out on a restaurant before finishing the revamp.

Ramsay finished by assuring that he will "be continuing with [his] other shows." You can read the full announcement on Gordon Ramsay's website.
