The king of angry cheffing has become well-loved - if not a little feared - for his short temper and no-nonsense cooking style.

Gordon possesses a sheer talent in the kitchen.

It's no secret that he is an incredibly gifted chef, with millions of people all over the world clamoring to dine in his infamous restaurants.

But the majority of his fame comes from his hugely successful TV shows.

One of his most popular shows is Kitchen Nightmares, a show wherein Gordon helps restaurant owners to revamp their crumbling kitchens and transform them into the best places to eat in America. But of course, Kitchen Nightmares never falls short in its bad language and temper tantrums. Let's not even get started on Hell's Kitchen...

Idiot Sandwich, anyone?

When it comes to cooking amazing food, Gordon isn't afraid to put people well and truly in their place.

And, with his colorful language and explosive temper in the kitchen...

Budding chefs know too well to not get in Gordon's way.

But this is because he's an expert at what he does...

Which is evident from the huge $15.4 million profit he made last year, despite him working for free!

The fifty-three-year-old didn’t take any pay last year at all.

Even though his restaurants made a staggering $71 million turnover.

His chain contains 3 Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as the one Michelin-star eatery, Petrus.

But that's not all, he also has Savoy Grill and Gordon Ramsay Plane Food at Heathrow in the UK, as well as 10 other smaller ventures.

And he's not stopping anytime soon, he's actually looking to expand...

Over the next five years, he wants to open 200 restaurants in North America, Canada, and the Caribbean, as well as 200 in Asia, and 50 sites in the UK.

According to accounts...

It was only Andy Wenlock the company director and group CEO, that was paid £417,000, ($540,918) for the year.

Over the years, Gordon has invested £7.4 million of his own money into his business, which is a "director’s loan, owing from the company."

He’s also "given personal guarantees totaling £5 million in respect of the Group’s banking facility."

It might seem like he's not getting anything out of his hard work...

However, he still makes millions off of his TV career and image rights.

His restaurant chains Bread St Kitchen and Maze are the most popular in the UK.

Brits travel from all across the country to dine in his restaurants.

It's estimated that they spend over £1 million a week eating his food...

With an annual turnover in the UK of £49.3 million.

His rival, Jamie Oliver’s restaurant chain hasn't had the same luck, as it went into administration last year...

All the while Gordon is planning world domination.

If that wasn't enough, he's just signed a $19.5 million deal with Lion Capital LLP...

A British private equity firm who have owned Jimmy Choo, Weetabix, Wagamama, and Kettle Chips.

They're planning on opening his restaurants here in the US...

We can't wait!

Not even 2020 wants to mess with Gordon.
