Up until about a decade ago, most people weren’t familiar with Gordon Ramsay. This ill-tempered, profanity-spewing master chef and businessman only broke onto the international stage when hit shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares began airing around the globe. Since then, he’s appeared in all sorts of television productions and talk shows and we know a little bit more about this colorful figure. But there’s always hidden stories that not everyone knows about.
So just what are some surprising things you didn’t know about Gordon Ramsay? Well, there’s the fact that despite being known as a chef of high standards he loves American fast food. He also isn’t a man who settles for three squares a day, instead opting for many smaller meals. That trademark scowl with all those wrinkles is actually a lot less wrinkly today thanks to some cosmetic work done a few years ago. In fact, for being such a short-tempered perfectionist and demanding figure in the kitchen, Ramsay is actually all about the second chances. Despite having the highest standards when it comes to food, you’ll see that even Gordon Ramsay has a line when it comes to animal cruelty and inhumane practices for preparing food. There’s also the fact that all those rich sauces and dishes can’t distract this chef from his desire to stay in shape and compete at the highest levels of athletics. Of course, when you spread yourself this thin you can open yourself up to financial and personal collapse and Ramsay faced this several years ago when his success was really taking off. What would a celebrity video be without a discussion of their cars? Gordon Ramsay has a fleet of beauties with Ferrari being prized above all others. Yet, it could have all been so different if his soccer career had worked out. It’s strange to think but Ramsay could have become known as someone who served up goals instead of decadent dishes. Finally, there’s his overall image. While his portrayal on certain shows has him come off as a near-monster at times, Ramsay is actually a pretty caring guy, especially when it comes to kids.
