image for Gordon Ramsey May Replace Simon Cowell on Idol

Los Angeles, CA - Word through the grapevine has it that Gordon Ramsey is on tap to compete for the coveted American Idol judge's seat left idle by Simon Cowell. Tiring of the cooking gigs he's been getting lately, Ramsay is said to be very interested in the spot.

"Most people don't know this about me," said Ramsay, "but I'm a really good singer in the shower." He added, "Maybe I don't have the experience that Simon Cowell has, but I sure as hell have the temper and the English accent, and as far as anyone is concerned, that's what sells American Idol, not the ability to spot a good singer dead on. Let Randy and Kara take care of that. If that little twit, Ellen, who doesn't have an ounce of singing talent, can be on the show, then I bloody well can too."

Asked what he thinks about the show American Idol in general, Ramsay confided, "can't stand the bloody show actually. Tried watching once but it was so distracting, like tomcats caterwauling on a fence. Almost picked up the telly and threw it through the window. But, having said that, isn't that what this job is all about? Telling singers they sound like tom cats being thrown down a flight of stairs, or making fun of people who can't sing worth a lick?" Ramsay laughed, "I think I'll get on rather well on the show, and if I don't, who the bloody hell cares?"
