Gordon Ramsay tops annual list of highest-paid chefs
In 2019 it looked like the chef’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (September 20) that Ramsay is the highest-paid chef in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between August 2020 and August 2021, a nearly $50 million lead over his closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The British chef has an estimated net worth of $245 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Ramsay Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Johnstone Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderamsay - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Gordon) and a fashion line called “Gordon Ramsay Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Gordon fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
