Gordon Ramsay’s new show Future Food Stars debuted on BBC One on Thursday, but viewers are still confused as the first challenge doesn’t involve cooking
BBC viewers were left baffled when Gordon Ramsay’s new haute couture show Future Food Stars launched on Thursday night with an inexplicable no-cooking challenge.
The 55-year-old British chef has returned to screens in search of the UK’s most innovative and exciting food and drink businesses, with a premise reminiscent of Lord Alan Sugar’s The Apprentice.
As Gordon searched for the next “Food Star” to invest in, he took his food businesses through the water with a series of challenges.
Gordon got into the show by jumping from a helicopter into the open waters of Cornwall for a swim to shore, where his eager contestants awaited the introduction.

As BBC viewers took to Twitter, many compared the show to SAS Who Dares Wins and expressed their confusion, with one asking: “What does your cooking have to do with jumping from a cliff into the sea?!”

Another crashed the program, writing: “This is silly. Your ability to run your business has nothing to do with whether or not you can jump off a cliff. It has nothing to do with motivation and passion. Surely not wanting to take unnecessary risks would be more helpful? ”
Another joked: “I love Gordon Ramsay but my god started this in a weird way… it’s like The Apprentice combined with I’m A Celeb, and about the first minute of Die Another Day .”
“This is SAS meets The Apprentice, what the hell is this about cooking? Looks like absolute hell,” another user tweeted.
The contestants will have to make it to the final round of the competition to secure Ramsay’s endorsement and a £150,000 cash prize.
