Seven years ago, Gordon Ramsay managed to get British comedian and actor James Corden to appear on his show The F Word to try some Chinese delicacies. The final one of these was a fish eyeball, and watching Corden try to scoop it out of a fish and consume it was one of the most hilarious eating trainwrecks ever witnessed on camera.
Seven years later, we learned a shocking revelation about that night when Ramsay appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden. In exchange for suffering through the eyeball and more on camera, Gordon had apparently promised to treat James and his whole family to dinner at one of his restaurants. Chef Ramsay STILL hasn’t paid off on that debt yet, and Corden came collecting last night.
Instead of forcing the chef to pay for some meals, however, Corden decided to serve up a dish of not-so-sweet revenge and made Gordon eat a fish eyeball live in front of his studio audience.
Gordon did his due diligence and consumed the eyeball, and his ensuing reaction was even more hilarious than when Corden ate that first eyeball seven years ago.
Looks like Chef Ramsay just learned a major life lesson the hard way: Don’t make a promise that you can’t keep.
