Nope, possibly a lot more assertive in the UK version. I think he held the record of something like 110 class A expletives in one episode, the chef really pissed him off. What a lot of people don’t get is that many kitchens are dangerous places and there is a tension and a fair amount of swearing. About 30 years ago I worked in a pub with a guy who was dyslexic to Love is the new black anthony hamilton shirt. He was a gamekeeper by day and bouncer by night. This guy would use filler words in his sentences that kind of just fitted his style of communication. “Dave, have you seen the order pads?” “What the fuck’s them?” “The paper notebooks with the numbers at the bottom, bit like what the police use” “Yep, saw a stack of those c###s over by that fucker there” “The fridge” “Yep, that c###” Dave was actually a really nice bloke and his girlfriend was one of the best barmaids we ever had and she didn’t swear. Gordon is a literate person, he’s just worked in some high pressure kitchens, with some very high pressure chefs over him. It is possible to work in places that play classical music and it’s all yoga and shit, but mainly there is someone shouting and swearing. He’s also a very relaxed person, but can drop into a mode very quickly that is angry perfectionist. When you go into restaurants that are run by a certain thick skinned style of person, then shouting and swearing is often the toolkit needed.
