AceShowbiz - Gordon Ramsay seemingly wants to have some fun on "MasterChef" by pulling a prank on a contestant, but it is far from being appreciated. In a viral clip from the latest episode of the cooking competition, the 54-year-old British chef could be seen eliminating a woman after giving her a false hope.
Before sending her home, Gordon told the young chef to call her friends and family into the room. Thinking that she made it through the next round, the contestant's family and friends came in while looking excited and holding congratulations signs.
However, crushing their hopes, Gordon delivered the bad news with a smile. "It's a no," he told the hopeful chef.
A TikTok user called _m0_g shared the clip on the platform and called him "straight evil." In his post, he said, "He did the poor girl so dirty. He even made her go to the back and call all of her family. They came in cheering, all happy.. and just look at the smile on [Gordon's] face. That was the most evil thing I've ever seen."

Echoing the sentiment, a viewer wrote in the comment section, "He woke up and he chose violence." Another user added, "Bro smiled when he said it too." Meanwhile, a third person said, "Gordon has no chill."
The backlash arrives after Gordon's daughter Holly spent three months in a mental health hospital after suffering PTSD from sexual assaults that she experienced when she was 18. Addressing the matter on her "21 & Over with Holly Ramsay" podcast, the 21-year-old detailed how she was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder.
"I was going out a lot, missing class because I'd been out. I wasn't enjoying myself. I was struggling a lot. The PTSD was a result of two sexual assaults when I was 18...," she said. "I didn't tell anyone about it until a year afterwards. I just buried it in a box in the back of my mind. [In hospital] is was where I was diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression."
