Ramsay dressed up as his female alter ego Libby-Lou for his new TV show and the chef shared footage of the result on his Instagram account. Apologising to his wife for doing so.
‘This dude looks like a lady tonight on an all-new @24hoursfox ….. @tanaramsay I apologize in advance.’
However, chef Ramsay wasn’t just putting on women’s clothes because they felt good, it was part of an undercover mission to observe how a restaurant treated its customers.
‘This family-run restaurant is located in a very busy intersection yet they can’t get those customers to go through their door. ‘I will be going undercover as a member if a weekly book club,” he said.
‘This family-run restaurant is located in a very busy intersection yet they can’t get those customers to go through their door. ‘I will be going undercover as a member if a weekly book club.
‘Libby-Lou ready for a ladies’ lunch. Trust me, this one’s going to be a page-turner.’
Ramsay had an entire makeover with professional make-up artists and the result is exactly what you think Gordon Ramsay in drag would look like.
Pink lipstick, eyeshadow, curly wig and full female regalia and Ramsay comes off as a rather masculine-looking book club member.
It seems Ramsay got what he was looking for as no one recognised him and he was able to get a sneak-peak at the restaurant’s serving as a normal customer. After waiting an hour for a meal, Ramsay says to one of his fellow book club members, ‘Look how dry that is? The pork chop has been fried so much it’s well overcooked,’ he says.
After trying one of his companion’s meals he says, ‘That is awful it tastes like cough medicine.’
Ramsay may seem like the alpha-male, foul-mouthed old-school chef, but he doesn’t take himself too seriously at all if this is anything to go by.
