When it comes to swearing, Gordon Ramsay is a master, with a well-earned reputation for ear-shredding profanity that’s often aimed at contestants who produce miserable meals on “Hell’s Kitchen”.
But has the foul-mouthed celebrity chef met his match? In this corner: Kevin Spacey, star of critically acclaimed Netflix drama “House of Cards”, appearing in a new promo for Ramsay’s upcoming Fox series “The F Word” to prove that he’s no slouch in the profanity department.
In the promo, Ramsay and Spacey engage in a swear off, with Spacey gaining the upper hand when discussing his latest project, in which he plays famed attorney “Clarence f***ing Darrow,” and then describes the meal he’s enjoying as “f***ing, f***ing, f***ing good.”
“Of course it is,” retorts Ramsay. “I f***ing made it.”
As the competition becomes more heated — and the swearing more creative (at one point, Spacey pulls out a profanity-laced Bill Clinton impression) — Ramsay finally throws in the towel. “Damn,” says Ramsay. “I’ve been out f***ed!” he says.
“The F Word with Gordon Ramsay” premieres Wednesday, May 31.
