When asked to unveil the truth about what Gordon Ramsay is really like in person for a February 2021 interview with Mashed, chef Christina Wilson immediately said that he is “amazing.” She continued, “He’s one of the most humble and gracious men, regardless of his success in life, that I have ever met.”
She also reinforced something many fans already knew: that he is a sweetheart around his kids. “He is an absolute puddle when he’s around his kids. I think people would be legitimately freaked out if they ever saw him in the company of his wife and children,” she stated.
When asked about his “fierceness,” Wilson said he can definitely get riled up, but only in appropriate settings. “You see that side of him when it’s either his name on the plate or guests are paying for food. You don’t see him get that way during challenges. You’ll see him be really constructive and give you some pretty honest feedback, same thing at MasterChef,” she confirmed. “The only time he really gets wound up is if food that shouldn’t be going out of the kitchen is going out of the kitchen,” she added.
Even with his explosive attitude, Wilson said Ramsay is undoubtedly a respectable man. “There is this side to Gordon you see in everything that he does, that he didn’t come from much,” she said. “I can’t say enough how humble and generous he is.”
