We know this because the straightforwardly named “Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares Blog” tracks the success and failure of restaurants after they appear on the show. The blog’s careful research reveals that a whopping 61 percent of all the restaurants that have ever been “saved” by Gordon Ramsay are now closed.
There are 22 Kitchen Nightmares restaurants still open and 83 Kitchen Nightmares restaurants that have closed .
A: The restaurant owner pays nothing and Ramsay doesn’t pay for it out of his own pocket, either. The production company that makes the show pays for the renovations. Per co-executive producer Lindsay Kugler: “ ‘ Kitchen Nightmares ‘ ‘ mission is to help participating restaurants get back on their feet.

The lawsuit alleges that “unknown to the viewing audience, some or all of Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares shows are fake and the so-called ‘problems uncovered and solved’ by Ramsay are, for the most part, created by Ramsay and his staff for the purpose of making it appear that Ramsay is improving the restaurant.”
Not only are the diners not “real” (at least in the sense that they’re not everyday, ordinary people but are somehow connected to the show), but neither is the restaurant itself. It makes sense, when you think about it. Hell’s Kitchen is a television show, after all. Television shows are shot on soundstages.
