Over the course of 15 seasons as the host of Hell’s Kitchen, Gordon Ramsay has turned many an aspiring chef’s dreams into ash with his withering put-downs. One thing he hasn’t done, however, is taste Girl Scout cookies. Jimmy Kimmel remedied this blindspot during Ramsay’s Wednesday night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! by presenting the irascible chef with Tagalongs, Samoas, and Thin Mints.
“I’m gonna first of all warn you this is almost sacred territory you’re entering here,” Kimmel said. “There’s the American flag, and there’s Willie Nelson, and then we have Girl Scout cookies. Those are the three things we care about. I just don’t want to get you run out of the country.”

Ramsay tried each of them one by one. He thought Tagalongs were “okay,” but was confused as to why they looked like “dog biscuits.” His review of Samoas: “That’s a bit weird.” But his Thin Mints review was the most withering of all.
“It tastes like a cheap after-dinner mint,” Ramsay said before spitting the cookie out.
“Well, Gordon Ramsay’s visa just expired,” Kimmel said.
