If you’ve ever dreamt of watching Gordon Ramsay don a fake beard and a nameless Lehigh Valley Phantoms jersey while crapping on an Allentown restaurant, your big day is finally here.
The second season of Ramsay’s FOX show, “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours To Hell & Back,” is making a pitstop in Allentown, Pennsylvania, for its Jan. 9 episode (FOX, 9 p.m.).
Unsurprisingly, it seems The Very Angry Chef is displeased with the restaurant in question, The Shanty on 19th.
Here’s the trailer for the upcoming episode:
Truly, this is the golden age of television.
The show’s premise — Ramsay visits a restaurant, says it is bad, and then fixes it in 24 hours — certainly aligns with his penchant for being mean and loud.
For what it’s worth, The Shanty on 19th has a three-star rating from 71 Yelp reviews. A little more than four years ago, one Trip Advisor reviewer gave the spot five stars and said his experience was “just shy of sex” which is certainly something.
Hopefully the show ends with Ramsay’s thoughts on new Phantoms head coach Kerry Huffman.
