US television network Fox and UK celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay have teamed up to produce a new hotel-themed reality TV show featuring America’s worst hotels.
Ramsay and a team of hospitality experts will travel around the US to turn around struggling hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts, exposing dirty rooms, decaying bathrooms and incompetent staff.
“These are stories that everyone can relate to, because virtually all of us have had a bad hotel experience that’s turned a holiday or business trip into a total disaster. It’s time to put the hospitality industry to the test,” Ramsay told Reuters.
Fox commented in a statement: “From dirty bedrooms and mold-ridden bathrooms to incompetent staff or customer service that’s not up to par, Ramsay and his team will work with the hotel employees to turn these hapless establishments around.”
“As he tries to turn these `No’-tels into successful hotels, Ramsay – in his own inimitable style – will go head-to-head with the owners.”
