Gordon Ramsay Kitchen Nightmares Premiere: Amy’s Baking Company Returns!
They’re baaaaack! Gordon Ramsay’s getting a recurring nightmare when the Arizona couple behind Amy’s Baking Company returns in the show’s Season 6 premiere.
Almost immediately after their May 2013 episode of Kitchen Nightmares aired, Amy Bouzaglo and her husband Samy became a viral sensation. Gordon Ramsay wasn’t the only person disgusted with the, uh, headstrong couple’s business tactics, with critics flocking to Yelp, Reddit, and other parts of the web to take down the Scottsdale business owners.
Former employees also piled on, sharing their “crazy” employee contracts, which (among other ludicrous demands) required workers to agree not to work for any competing restaurant within a 50-mile radius for at least one year after termination or resignation. All the negative attention earned ABC a spot on a list of the worst businesses of 2013.
Suffice it to say, Amy’s Baking Company isn’t doing any better than it was after Gordon left the Scottsdale restaurant in disgust. So why would the celebrity chef return for more abuse? Well, ratings, obviously, but hopefully the Bouzaglos will be a little more receptive to his advice this time around.
If you want to find out for yourself, the two-part episode will premiere at 8 p.m. on February 28 on Fox.
