Indonesian Hell's Kitchen coming soon
The Hollywood Reporter recently published that Indonesia will have its own flavour of Gordon Ramsey's Hell's Kitchen soon, as ITV Studios Global Entertainment announced the selling of its first deal for the show in Asia, to Indonesian broadcaster SCTV.
SCTV has commissioned 25 of the 60 minute episodes of the show to be aired later this 2014, and it will be hosted by the local chef Juna Rorimpandey, a.k.a. Chef Juna (@JunaRorimpandey), the jury of Indonesian Master Chef, dubbed as "Indonesia's wildest, hell-raising chef" by CNN Travel.
The heavily tattooed, Harley-riding chef Juna will tests both the performance and gut of competing amateur chefs, eliminating them one by one until a champion is born.

With Indonesian TV stations practically thrown in every kind of drama possible for the sake of rating though, and Hell's Kitchen has been known worldwide for its dramatic quality, I hope this Indonesian Hell's Kitchen will also provide an educating and entertaining cooking show. (byms)
