I can not stand Gordon Ramsey either. If he talked to me the way he talks to people on his shows, I would smack him on the head with a cast iron skillet so hard, he'd have to unzip his pants to eat!

I know Gordon personally. His television personna is not like the real man. What many people don't know about him is that he was a professional football player whose career was cut drastically short by a severe injury, he lost a brother to drug abuse and he spends a lot of his time and money on AA and NA charities. He doesn't make a big deal out of any of this- hardly anyone but his friends knows what he really does when the cameras are off- but he's the real thing.... a good guy. All the rest is just to hype the TV ratings throughout the English speaking world.

true, ramsay rails at those young hell's kitchen contestants, slamming their raw scallops and chicken mistakes with ferocious zeal into the awaiting trash bins. some feelings get hurt, but the chaff is being separated from the wheat at the same time, and yes, let's not forget, this is, after all, tv. ramsay's volatile outbursts of rage are his meal ticket as much as are his skills as a chef. he has clearly emerged as the "softie" of the three judges on the masterchef show. i didn't know the aspects of his personal history that you cited, pod, but ramsay's goodness and caring spirit shine through for all to see in all of his performances. i go out of my way to watch any show he is on. he is witty, outrageous, entertaining and highly infectious--and many of us, well, we love him....

Well, I guess we know who Tony Boudain's least favorite is:

Anthony Bourdain spars with Paula Deen - Celebrity Circuit - CBS News

Bourdain rips Fieri all the time, both on his show and on Twitter. I don't think he can go 3 days on Twitter without saying something about Guy.

I soon agree. I don't understand the concept of the show and her voice is like nails on a blackboard.
