- American version is censored. Americans really are terrified of naughty words, aren't they? On Youtube in the comments people are shocked - shocked! that it goes out on free-to-air TV in the UK with 'fuck'. In America, one must pay for 'fuck'.
- 'Chef Ramsay' - He's referred to this in the US one, for some reason. I've never seen 'chef' used as a title like that before.
- Cleanliness - A few of the US kitchens are absolutely filthy. Whether this is due to actual lower standards or just being less inclined to remove the cockroaches from the fridge before appearing on television, I am not sure.
- Pre-prepared food - Some of the UK restaurants use a bit of it, and are duly given out to; Ramsay refers to 'plastic sauces', which I quite like. Most of the US ones are ALL pre-prepared food. Whether this is due to actual difference or selection criteria, I am, again, not sure.
- Stupid owners - The owners in the US are very much more likely to be indignant when told that their veal with rasperries or whatever insanity is a silly idea. Sometimes, they will try to reintroduce it to the menu while no-one's looking!
- US version generally more scripted-looking, like a drama.
