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

Jaxon Edwin is a barbershop, coffee bar and game room that received renovations and updates by Ramsay and the team. 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.”

  • I would like to personally thank Ken for all his help in helping me to find a job. On June 1st I was released from my job of 11 years. I was unsure of what my next steps would be. I haven't been through an interview in years and I felt like I was unprepared. Ken took the time to help me step by step. He first gathered all my personal information and work history. He built a resume from all of that information and articulated my accomplishments in a way I never could have. He sent me tips on what to wear, questions to ask, and called after my interviews to see how it went. He gave me support and encouragement when I was at my absolute lowest. I couldn't have asked for a better recruiter! Thank you again Ken! Thanks, Again, KenGeneral Manager, Logan's Road House, Chattanooga TN
