Masterchef

Gordon Ramsay's day on a plate is extremely disappointing

Unless you're a fan of gruel..

It's Gordon Ramsay week on MasterChef Australia and fans are loving it, so much that the episode where the chef was introduced was the most watched of this season so far.

Gordon, alongside a torrent of beeped F-bombs, flew Down Under earlier this year to film a week's worth of episodes for MasterChef Australia.

The MasterChef US judge has been a long time fan of MasterChef Australia, though this is his first appearance on the reality cooking show.

He joins Australian judges Gary Mehigan, Matt Preston and George Calombaris, mentoring contestants as they went up against professional chefs, mystery boxes and immunity challenges.

And while we're just as excited as anyone else, we can't forget that the popular chef shared some pretty controversial views on food in an online forum and we're shocked a foodie's day on a plate is so disappointing.

A curious Reddit user asked the foul-mouthed chef what he normally eats as an everyday meal and there is no full English or eggs benedict in sight.

"So I don't really sit down and do lunch. I certainly don't sit down and eat dinner," he replied.

"I have a breakfast with oatmeal, that's the first thing, and that sets me up for the rest of the day."

"It's very hard to sit down for a 3 course meal, and I'm very easy to please. If I go out to dinner, I'll share an appetizer, enjoy my entree, and enjoy my dessert. It's very hard for me to enjoy a full meal, because I taste every 2 minutes in the kitchen."

"And also, there's nothing worse than eating dinner at 5:30 and then having to get up and cook for 3 hours. So I like to keep on my toes, and eat small bits. Almost like in Hong Kong - 4 or 5 times a day, small bowls of food," he concluded.

And if that's not bad enough - wait till you hear how he makes his porridge.

"Growing up in Stratford-Upon-Avon, we kept it very simple, just oatmeal with water, salt, and oatmeal, because my dad said it would 'put hair on your bollocks!'," Gordon candidly shared.

Gordon Ramsay admits he lost 22kg to save his marriage

Gordon Ramsay opened up about his 22kg weight loss in a February interview and revealed he shed the pounds to save his marriage with wife, Tana Ramsay.

Suddenly that stark porridge breakfast makes more sense!

"Tana was not impressed with the way I was. It was painful. I used to look at myself in the mirror and think, 'Holy s--t!' So it was a big wake-up call," he said, according to The Daily Mail.

Gordon, 51, and Tana, 42, married in 1996 and are parents to four kids: Megan, 20, Holly and Jack, both 18, and Matilda, 16.

"I was overweight. I look at the pictures and think, 'How did Tana stay around?' Because Tana has got better-looking and more gorgeous. And there she is, getting in bed with a fat f--k."

He added, "I didn't have a figure. I didn't feel that good. After working my a-- off and achieving a lot, I wanted to get in serious shape."

It took Gordon some time to get his health back in order, but he eventually go into a routine that works well for him.

"I started focusing on getting super fit five or six years ago when my life got super busy. You get consumed by the work. You get sucked up," the Hell's Kitchen star shared.

"You get drawn in. All of a sudden your 'me time' is zero. There was no breathing space, no downtime, no time to even think straight. It all started hitting me hard. I didn't panic, but my head was not in the game."
