    I was going to do a poll but I can't think of any options good enough. I've never seen anyone on TV that angry over something so pathetic. Any ideas?

    Because he's an attention-seeker.

    Because it's "good TV entertainment"? Note: I don't personally think it's 'good' or 'entertainment', but I'm trying to answer your question.

    Because it's his gimmick, they interviewed his wife a while ago for this morning or one of the channel 4 programmes I think it was the one when they raised live stock in their own back garden for the table, yeah well his wife said if he really was like how he portrays him self on screen she never would have married him.

    Because he's PAID to be angry. No one would watch his shows if he were "nice."

    Because it's his reality television persona. I recently saw a US version of one of his shows (Hells Kitchen, I believe?) the amount of shouting and screaming was insane - not just from Ramsay. Watching him in other shows he is still a sweary gasbag, but he is much more toned down (especially in shows such as "Gordon's Great Escape" where he visits different countries, such as Cambodia).

    Ah, that explains it then. I avoid celebrity chefs. They're usually hyper-bloated egos with an acute lack of actual culinary skills. Why the current world populace is so enamored with them is beyond my comprehension.

    Yeah, I guessed people would say he's paid to but he seems just as angry unintentionally and in interviews.

    It's an act. Everyone loves to watch an asshole on TV for shock value. It brings in more viewers = higher ratings = a bigger paycheque. He's no different from Simon Cowell on American Idol.

    Because he missed out on being included in the Michelin Guide.

    Word is that the quality of the cuisine in his various restaurants has slipped since he started making reality shows.

    I think he's pissed because he wasn't picked up as the new GALLOPING GOURMET.

    I really can't stand him either. I don't care for people who scream and belittle other people. I hate those judge shows too for the same reason. I find it extremely disrespectful to speak to fellow adults in that manner. Part of the reason why I got rid of cable, so much garbage on television.

    I enjoy Kitchen Nightmares.

    While he's sometimes a little over the top, more than anything he's honest with people who can't see the problems with their restaurants.

    Best Restaurant was good too.
