Gordon Ramsay quiz Bank Balance branded ‘worst game show ever’ as viewers ‘switch off’

'Stick to food,' chef is told by viewers

Gordon Ramsay fronted his new game show Bank Balance last night (February 24) and it’s fair to say viewers were less than impressed.

In fact, some branded it the “worst game show ever”, while others went one step further and said it was the “worst thing I’ve ever seen on TV”.

Chef Ramsay is yet to respond to any of the negative comments that surfaced on Twitter.

“Gordon Ramsay #BankBalance is the worst game show since Kilroy did Shafted in the early 90s,” said another.

I’ve turned over already, stick to food.

“Gordon is a world-class chef, but he has no rapport with the contestants,” they added.

Another commented: “Oh my goodnesses this the worst game show ever! Come back tomorrow? No thanks, it’s boring and stupid and takes forever.”

“I’ve just switched off #BankBalance. Two of the most annoying contestants in the world and charmless Ramsay in charge… Give me The Chase any day!” said a second.

“Had enough already – switching off this [bleep]!” declared a third.

“Bank Balance nope,” said another. “Not getting any better and @GordonRamsay is no game show host. Switched off.”

“I’ve turned over already, stick to food,” said another.

Another commented: “#BankBalance an hour of my life i will never get back. The auditions must of asked for annoying, loud, talk a lot about nothing in particular. I’m off now to take some paracetamol.”
