Gordon Ramsay is a well-known Scottish chef, and restaurateur. He is also a famous television personality; known for the temper he displays on television cooking programs such as Hell’s Kitchen. People find him entertaining in this aspect. However, not everyone is the same, and some find him overly aggressive. Some would prefer to enjoy their free time reading a thrilling book, exercising in a park, or to play online games in the UK, rather than watching him ramble on television for hours. Therefore, he’s quite a controversial figure in the industry.
In 2006, Chef Ramsay received an OBE for his services in the hospitality industry. In total, his restaurants have been awarded 16 Michelin Stars. However, today he only holds 7 of them. With a net worth of $220 million, Ramsay is one of the wealthiest chefs in the world. He runs several restaurants across the globe, 18 of which are in London.
