How Gordon Ramsay Achieved a Net Worth of $175 Million

Gordon Ramsay

Generally speaking, the exact net worth of private individuals are not known to the public because they are, well, private individuals. However, that sort of thing has never stopped speculation, particularly when the private individual is someone as high-profile as Gordon Ramsay. Of course, speculation based on incomplete and perhaps even incorrect evidence is never a match for the full details, but at least one report from 2016 has suggested that he has a net worth of $175 million. Given that it is now 2018 rather than 2016, it seems probable that Ramsay’s net worth has risen even higher in the time that has passed because of the wide range of ventures in which he is involved in one way or another.

How Did Gordon Ramsay Reach His Current Net Worth?

Given his rough personality, it is perhaps unsurprising to learn that Ramsay had a rather rough childhood. In short, his family moved from place to place on a constant basis because of his father, who was a sometimes violent alcoholic who failed at a number of pursuits. As a result, Ramsay moved out when he was still 16, with the result that he started playing football.

Ramsay’s interest in football produced no great result. In part, this was because of the numerous injuries that he sustained, which were worsened by his insistence in playing on in spite of them. Eventually, Ramsay became interested in cooking, which resulted in him study at a culinary school before working at a series of restaurants. In time, Ramsay’s work led him to studying French cuisine as well as Italian cuisine in a wide range of places, which provided him with the expertise and experience that he needed to reach a higher position than previously possible.

Later on, Ramsay’s dissatisfaction with the way that a restaurant was run resulted in him opening his own restaurant. Said restaurant prospered, so Ramsay made a natural choice to open more restaurants in more places. Nowadays, Ramsay owns dozens and dozens of restaurants, which can be found in countries situated all around the world. Naturally, this means that a fair amount of his net worth comes from his business pursuits.

With that said, most people might be more familiar with Ramsay because of his status as a TV personality. Ramsay’s first appearance on TV seems to have been as a judge on a series for catering students in 1997, which was when he was still working with a partner instead of having struck out on his own. From that point, Ramsay built and built, with the result that he became more and more notable. Something that in turn, made him more and more popular for the people behind TV shows. As a result, Ramsay was able to get a TV show named Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares by 2004, which saw him troubleshooting a wide range of restaurants in serious trouble. This was the series that was brought over to the United States, which in turn, has contributed to his appearance in numerous TV shows in various ways. Suffice to say that Ramsay has become a very recognizable face on the TV screen, particularly for people with a fondness for watching TV shows centered around food. Due to this, it is safe to say that a significant chunk of Ramsay’s net worth has come from his involvement in TV shows as well.

Besides this, it should come as no surprise to learn that Ramsay has other business pursuits as well. In some cases, he has launched his own product lines. In other cases, he has collaborated with others on theirs, which makes sense because he has built up plenty of star power over the course of his career as a TV personality. A fair amount of these business pursuits have turned out well as well, which have contributed further to his wealth.

Ramsay will continue to rake it in

As stated earlier, the $175 million is actually an estimated figure from 2016, meaning that it should be outdated by this point in time. Since that time, Ramsay has continued to make money through various pursuits, which should be clear to anyone who has caught a glimpse of his face on the TV screen or one of the countless other venues where it can be found from 2017 to 2018. As a result, it is unclear how high Ramsay’s net worth has climbed, but it is almost certain that it has climbed.
