Gordon Ramsay is a Rich %$@

And he’s apparently about to get even richer.
Word is out that Gordon Ramsay’s confrontation/cooking show “Hell’s Kitchen” has been picked up by Fox Network for a third season. The show’s strong performance in the coveted 18-49 year old demographic is mentioned as one of the reasons for the pickup.
The new season will no doubt carry a hefty salary, but it looks like Gordon won’t be suffering any time soon regardless of future paychecks. The Evening Standard reports that Ramsay’s business ventures and BBC money place Ramsay’s net worth at £60 million (nearly $111 million to us, fellow Yanks), and that’s before he begins his conquest of America with the opening of a restaurant in New York this fall.
By the way, the idiots at Cablevision have decided not to include BBC America among the roughly 750 channels on my digital cable, so I’m not able to watch Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, which is supposed to be much better than Hell’s Kitchen. If you get BBC America and watch Kitchen Nightmares, please feel free to let us know what you think of it in the comments. If you don’t watch it, check out the video clips at the link above…it looks very good.
