Three Ellicott City Businesses are Rescued by Gordon Ramsay

In a special episode of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back titled “Save Our Town,” Ramsay and the crew renovate three separate businesses in Ellicott City, Maryland, a town that was hit by massive floods in 2016 and 2017.

Guest Stars during the episode include interior designer Nate Berkus, former Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame baseball player Cal Ripken Jr., former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith and the Maryland National Guard.

During the preview for the episode, Ramsay says, “I’m going to save an entire town,” and the National Guard is seen helping out.

The two-hour episode of 24 Hours to Hell and Back: Save Our Town, which promises to be Ramsay’s “biggest rescue yet,” airs on FOX on Tuesday, May 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Jaxon Edwin Social House Was Also Rescued by Ramsay

Jeff Braswell, the owner of the business, said that though the coronavirus pandemic has affected his life in the past few months, he has always planned to watch the episode with his family and is glad he can still do that.

“You want to be around the people you love,” he told the Baltimore Sun. “It’s going to be an emotional episode, but it’s going to be exciting for the town.”
