Gordon Ramsay the most admired man in the UK

Gordon RamsayThis poll in the UK edition of Esquire isn't too much of a surprise I guess. I can understand why chef and TV host Gordon Ramsay is the most admired guy, especially in a popular, "of the moment" sort of way. But what I find funny is that he beat scientist and author Stephen Hawking, a man that has literally changed the way we look at space, time, and the universe.

Other people on the list after Ramsay (17%) and Hawking (14%) are Ray Mears (a TV survival expert - probably unknown to many of us here in the U.S.), who got 11% of the vote, new James Bond Daniel Craig, who also got 11%, and comedian/writer Ricky Gervais, who somehow only got 9% of the vote.

The new season of Hell's Kitchen, the U.S. show that Ramsay hosts, starts on FOX, June 4 at 9pm.

And not only is Hawking a great theoretical physicist, but have you seen the guy's poker face?

WTF? No Jeremy Clarkson? He beats out any of those hacks and maybe the smartest man on that side of the planet.

Please believe me - Gordon Ramsay is most certainly NOT the most admired man in the UK!!!

His programmes are peppered with disgusting language and his cooking skills are little more than mediocre.

There are many of us who think he is totally repugnant I'm sorry to say.

My sincere apologies for being so negative!
