** Virtually any chef that is so incompetent and/or disobedient that they have to be fired is liable to being this. Casamiro from Charlie's is the most infamous example, not only for being both incompetent ''and'' disobedient, but also taking advantage if his boss' emotional connection with him, even as he's jeopardizing the financial state of the restaurant.

** There is also Sebastian for being an annoying, lazy, rude, delusional, egotistical ManChild, and Joe from Mill Street Bistro for being a lying, belligerent tyrant and all-around {{Jerkass}}.

** She has ''nothing'' on Amy (and possibly Sammy) from the infamous Amy's Baking Company episode, as you can tell from the reaction THAT episode received and the chaos that followed!

* TheScrappy: Adele of Flamangos is extremely hated. From complaining when Gordon objects to her husband, a man in his 70s, doing a psychically strenuous task every night (in a manner that implies the staff have objected to it as well) to bitching out the staff for trivial things to hating the remodel because "I don't like blue" ''while wearing a blue sweater'' to outright telling customers how she doesn't think Gordon knew what he was doing with the new menu and remodel, almost everyone who comes away from the episode singularly ''loathes'' her

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Even in a series made of incompetent/ill-tempered restauranteurs, there are some examples that truly stand out:
** During the "Burger Kitchen" episode, the owners are an elderly couple and their adult son Daniel. Over the course of the episode, it is revealed that the restaurant was opened after Daniel's grandfather (the husband's father) had passed away, leaving a sizable inheritance to his son and grandson. The grandfather had left his grandson's portion of the inheritance in a trust which the son used as start-up capital for the restaurant, without his own son's knowledge or permission. Basically, Daniel was presented with a ''fait accompli'' and felt he had no choice but to go along with it, despite not having any interest in being a restauranteur, taking on a job as a kitchen manager. On top of that, the restaurant itself was in dire financial straits, with his parents constantly coming to him for further funds to meet payroll, not keeping accurate books as far as his initial and continuing contributions to the restaurant fund, belittling his fiancée when she volunteers her time to help him out, and constantly stonewalling him when he comes to them wanting official documentation about his 50% share in the business. The best they do is a handmade document printed from a home computer that looks like the legal equivalent of an I.O.U. written on a cocktail napkin. The overall situation, and resulting discord, was so great that the result became one of the few two-part episodes in the entire series.

** Katie and Miranda from Amy's Baking Company are ''very'' popular. Both are woobies for being young girls who have to put up with their unstable owners and not getting tips, but Katie got it worse when she was told to leave for asking if Amy was sure of something... after Amy had to correct herself, meaning it was probably a smart move... then he was berated by Amy for walking away... which Amy just told her to do... then shr got fired. Poor girl. Meanwhile, Miranda is popular for being a SadClown and constantly joking around about the state of ABC despite obviously hating working there.

** Sara from La Galleria 33, for just being so blatant in how much joy she took in pointing out how bad the restaurant was, to the point of constantly smiling and laughing. She went out of her way to trick Gordon into ordering a dish so bad that even the owners knew about the complaints.

** Mama Mary of Blackberry's, a sweet old woman and excellent baker who put everything she had into her daughter's restaurant, only for her daughter to refuse change, disrespecting both her and Gordon when he tries and fails to help.
