"The F Word" review by Eva Diaz  6/2/17
Airs Wednesdays 9/8c on FOX

I was interested in watching the F word because I love cooking shows. I know what you're thinking, but the F word doesn't mean that F word! It stands for food, family and fun. The show is a combination competition show and talk show.  Two families compete in each episode to make a meal that Gordon Ramsey tells them to make, and then the diners at the F Word resturant taste the meal coooked by each team. They pick a winning team, which moves on in the competition and has a chance to win $100,000. While the teams are cooking, Gordon interviews some celebrity guests that are in the audience and asks them about their current movie or TV projects, as well as what food they like to eat.  He also has a segment where he disguises himself and goes to different places to see if people can recognize him, or whether he manages to fool them. In the first episode, he disguised himself to fool his former sous chef. The show is live, with a few taped segments. I thought I was going to like it, but the truth is, it needs some work because it tends to drag a bit. It's too slow. Gordon Ramsey seemed very nervous and was talking faser then his usual speech pattern.

I would also have liked the show better if he would have spent more time focusing on how the competing families were cooking their meals, rather then spending so much time with the celebrity guests.  That way we could have been rooting more for the families then we were. I think that the competition took a backseat to the interviews, instead of the competition being the focus of the show. I think that the show shouldn't be live --  it should be recorded because they were trying to say that since it was live, anything could happen.  However, the truth is that nothing out of the ordinary happened. This show needs a lot of work, but if they make some changes, it could be a good show. I am going to give it a 3 out of 5 stars because it needs some work to make it better. I might keep watching it, but only if there wasn't anything else on TV I wanted to watch.

GORDON RAMSAY’S “THE F WORD” TO AIR LIVE IN 2017 ON FOX 

A Dynamic Live Event Cooking Series Based On U.K. Hit

FOX has ordered THE F WORD, a bold new food variety show from award-winning chef and series host Gordon Ramsay. Based on his hit U.K. series of the same name, each distinctive and fast-paced hour will combine good food and good cooking with Ramsay’s passion, energy and humor into a one-of-a-kind LIVE series. THE F WORD is scheduled to premiere in 2017 on FOX.

On THE F WORD, foodie families from across the U.S. will battle it out in an intense, high-stakes cook-off. In addition to impressing Ramsay, each team must win over the hearts and taste buds of the diners, celebrities and VIP guests whom they’re serving.

Throughout each hour-long episode, cooking competition meets variety show as Ramsay chats with surprise guests and VIPs in the dining room, hosts live remotes with people from across the country, and appears weekly in unique field segments with fans, foodies and culinary experts.

“Gordon Ramsay is not only one of the biggest names in the culinary world, but his expertise, combined with his larger-than-life personality, also make for genuine event television,” said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “Gordon Ramsay stands tall in the line of great FOX stars, those unpredictable originals whom you simply can’t afford to miss, and THE F WORD could come from no one but Gordon. Let’s face it, with Gordon live on television, the phrase ‘anything can happen’ takes on a whole new meaning.”

“We’re really ramping it up a notch with this new live cooking show each week, and I can’t wait for viewers to see the other surprises we have in store for each episode,” said series host Gordon Ramsay.

THE F WORD is produced by Studio Ramsay and All3 America.
