Extreme language

The show is pretty good. But the reviewer doesn't seem to realize that many versions of the show - on streaming sites or the free episodes on YouTube- have no censors on language. So language should definitely have 5 out of 5 stars.

Show should be cancelled.

How this rude, sexist biggot has any show is beyond me. Gordon treats the contestants horribly, he is stuck in his old fashioned ways. Get this disgusting man off air!

This title has:

Too much swearing
