In the Season 6 premiere episode of the hit FOX show titled “Return to Amy’s Baking Company,” Ramsay returns to the famed Scottsdale, Ariz. restaurant that made headlines after their initial appearance on the show in which Samy and Amy screamed at customers, kicked them out of the restaurant and were accused of stealing their servers’ tips.
The fallout from their appearance resulted in backlash from customers — and the Bouzaglos placed blame on their struggling business on Yelp commenters, and even lashed out at Chef Ramsay.
Interestingly, last May Amy exclusively told Radar they would never invite Ramsay back to their restaurant, but obviously had a change of heart.
“Since Kitchen Nightmares aired we have not replied to anyone online. In the beginning we replied because these people were spreading malicious gossip and untrue slanderous things about my business. I took them for losers and opened fire with them to let them know that my husband and I are not suckers,” Amy told Radar.
“And we are not going to let the ‘Camel Toe Mafia’ try to ‘extort us out of a free pizza.’ But that was when we were dealing with a handful of bullies here in Arizona. Now it is us versus the entire Internet. We are using our energy towards more positive lucrative opportunities now.”
During the Season 6 premiere of Kitchen Nightmares, Ramsay catches up with the Bouzaglos to find out how life has changed for them since the original episode aired, and the media firestorm that ensued.
Tune in on Feb. 28 at 8/7c on FOX to catch the season premiere.
