Gordon Ramsay's very first foray into a TV series that wasn't based entirely around food was presented to viewers as a test run. Fox only bought a few episodes of the show before it decided to give it its full seal of approval, but it looks like it has indeed earned that honor.

Applications are reportedly surfacing for hotel owners who would like to be featured on the next season of the show.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, it is the hotel equivalent of Ramsay's popular series Kitchen Nightmares, in which he goes into fledgling restaurants, smacks the owners and employees around a bit and then transforms the place into a (hopefully) successful enterprise.

Hotel Hell is the exact same premise, except with a different venue. Because it is Ramsay, there is a lot of focus placed on the hotel's restaurant, but he also takes note of things like bad plumbing, poor cleanliness in the rooms, and inadequate laundry capacity.

After the show's test run, everything was left up in the air. Fox did not comment about whether or not it would be seeking a full season of the series. But indeed, it looks like that is the case, as Williamsburg Hotel Motel Association in Virginia received a phone call from the producers of the show, asking if the association knew of any local hotels that would be a good fit.

"If they pick someone here, there will be a couple of million sets of eyeballs on Williamsburg that week. But... there will be a little egg your face," the association's executive director Ron Kirkland said in a local news interview.

The show's staff said it was "specifically looking for hotels, B&Bs, inns, resorts and lodges that want Gordon to come in and help to increase their revenue, make changes, or better their business."

There has been no official news from Fox on when to expect the new season.
