FOX's Kitchen Nightmares Looking for OC Restaurants That Need Gordon Ramsay's Tough Love


If you know of an OC restaurant that needs a big kick in the pots, FOX wants to hear from you.

In his reality show Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsay spends a week at sinking restaurants, trying to whip them back into shape--and now he's looking for his next stops. We got an e-mail from a casting associate saying they're "ramping up casting in the Orange County area."

It seems the show didn't take our suggestion of Jason's Downtown in Santa Ana a couple of years back. Maybe they will this time around--oh, wait . . . Jason's is no longer open. 

A note of caution for those hoping to get some of Ramsay's tough love: Be prepared to take the heat.
