Gordon Ramsay is on a roll in tonight's 'Gordon Ramsay Uncharted'. He's blending cooking and thrill-seeking seamlessly and in the process, creating an unmissable episode. 

He's in Guyana, a country located on the North Atlantic coast of South America. As per the norm, the chef is out with guides in search of local produce and meat but this time it's different. This time, he is looking at hunting bigger and meatier animals such as caimans, black piranhas and the arowanas (a type of fish that can only be caught using a bow and an arrow).

As fun as it sounds, the search is going to be laced with danger. There are stingrays in the water, which he must wade through to catch the caiman by hand. While at it, he is asked to shuffle his feet to keep the stingrays at bay. 

"This jungle is filled with some of the most exciting foods anywhere on the planet," Gordon told National Geographic and added: "It's like a jungle vending machine." During his time in Guyana, he also learned how to make a bow and an arrow and grate the country's staple food - Cassava, which is a root vegetable and its juice, cassareep, one of the star ingredients of the national dish - pepperpot.

Apart from putting together an exotic dish and setting out on daring journeys, Gordon also continues with an age-old tradition of experimenting with food. In this episode, he eats a giant spider — the Goliath birdeater. Of course, after it was roasted over the fire. Clearly, there's no stopping Gordon from taking Season 2 to a newer level. He's doing the unthinkable this time and it seems to be working well. The viewers are loving what this celebrity chef has been doing just to put together a meal.
