​Gordon Ramsay Baffles Fans By Being Nice To Contestants On 'MasterChef'

Gordon Ramsay is famous for being absolutely savage about other people's creations - both on screen and on Twitter - but it seems these days the celeb chef is feeling a little more subdued in his approach:


Ramsay's built a reputation for himself that mostly involves swearing, rage and straight-up rudeness. You know, calling people an 'idiot sandwich' while sandwiching their head between two slice of bread, that kind of thing.


But his debut on MasterChef Australia this weekend saw viewers feeling a little baffled - as they watched him shower contestants with compliments and go easy on the dishes that went horribly wrong.

What's happened Gord, pal?


Bewildered viewers took to Twitter to express their confusion, with one person tweeting: "It's an act people! Gordon is secretly really nice! (at least on #MasterChefAU anyway)."

Another said: "This is like some weird movie, where Gordon Ramsay has been taken over by a 'nice' alien... I'm telling you now IT'S NOT GORDON. This one is too nice."

Others said that they weren't just confused, but disappointed by the chef's bizarre tameness.

"Why isn't Gordon saying how shit stuff is? It's the only reason I'm watching," one person said.


Another person tweeted: "Patiently waiting for Gordon Ramsay to insult and yell at someone."

Someone else said: "So... this may be the most censored f*cking #MasterChef in #Australian history???"

As well as his tirades against chefs on-screen, he's also known for making not-so-subtle digs at people's food over on Twitter.


One other time he decided to be nice to someone was when a bloke called Lewis tweeted Ramsay a photo of his scrambled eggs on toast with vine tomatoes and a grilled mushroom.


Despite its lack of pizzazz, it won the respect of Gordon Ramsay, with the chef saying: "Looks good Lewis."

I mean, it looks nice and all, but the fact that Ramsay felt compelled to take a hiatus from the online aggro was definitely surprising.

Twitter users were so shocked by his positive response that it racked up over 25,000 retweets and shares.
