Particular Yellowstone Character Faces Severe Treatment from the Duttons


Fans of the hit series Yellowstone have observed an overlooked character facing the brunt of the Dutton family’s mistreatment: their personal chef, Gator. While characters like Jamie or Jimmy often endure hardship on the show, it’s Gator, played by Gabriel Guilbeau, who appears to bear a different kind of suffering—the lack of appreciation for his culinary efforts.

On the Yellowstone subreddit, fans have pointed out that despite Gator’s impressive culinary skills, showcased through delectable meals, the Dutton family rarely seems to fully enjoy or appreciate his cooking. Scenes often depict them abruptly leaving the table, storming off in anger, or neglecting the food entirely, leaving Gator’s meticulously prepared dishes to go cold and uneaten.

One memorable instance highlighted the emotional impact of Gator’s unappreciated efforts when he prepared a delicious breakfast, only to witness John and Tate opting for a bowl of Choco Chimps cereal instead. This moment resonated with fans, evoking empathy for the underappreciated chef.


Despite the character’s resilience, considering it’s just another day in the Dutton household, the discrepancy between Gator’s hard work and the lack of acknowledgment for his culinary creations remains evident. It’s made even more poignant by the fact that Guilbeau, who portrays Gator on the show, is the on-set caterer for Yellowstone and has even authored a cookbook featuring show-themed recipes.

While the fictional Gator might seemingly endure the disregard with stoicism, viewers can’t help but wonder about the real-life kitchen master’s sentiments. Guilbeau’s behind-the-scenes role in creating meals for the series adds a layer of authenticity to Gator’s character, making his on-screen underappreciation all the more poignant. Fans appreciate the skill and dedication Guilbeau brings to the culinary aspect of the show and empathize with the apparent lack of recognition Gator receives on screen.
