Last week, Gordon Ramsay issued a challenge on Instagram, announcing that if he received 500 donations to the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity within 48 hours, he would do the unthinkable: eat “a f**king god-awful PINEAPPLE pizza,” as he so eloquently put it, and stream it live on Facebook.
To no one's surprise, Ramsay hit his goal handily. Rabid Ramsay fans, of course, are only too happy to see the grumpy chef suffer—and complain about it loudly, in trademark Ramsay fashion. So the chef held up his end of the bargain, reluctantly eating a couple bites of the "piece of…sugar" (no swearing!) during a Facebook Live segment. "It's like eating moose turds," he proclaims, referring to the Canadian provenance of pineapple pizza.
Frankly, we're disappointed—we wanted to see Ramsay chow down on an entire slice, instead of taking dainty bites with a fork and knife.
But the mouthy chef did come prepared: He whips out a bottle of mouthwash and takes a hearty swig, spitting the remains out into what we hope is a spit bucket on the floor.
Watch the video to see Ramsay sample a giant pineapple pizza—with his signature colorful commentary—in front of his delighted staff (the action starts at around the 3 minute mark).
