“MasterChef” host and president, One Potato Two Potato
Ramsay is a force to be reckoned with, both in the kitchen and on primetime lineups. The chef and brash TV personality has five shows set up at Fox: “Hell’s Kitchen,” which has been renewed through its 13th season; “MasterChef,” which has been renewed through its sixth; “Kitchen Nightmares,” which wrapped season five; “Hotel Hell,” which wrapped season one; and “MasterChef Junior,” which recently bowed on the broadcast network. While Ramsay is known for his acerbic tone with contestants on his adult cooking competitions, “MasterChef Junior” has allowed Ramsay to expand his brand beyond expletives and toward a more nurturing role as a mentor to aspiring tyke chefs. His shingle, One Potato Two Potato, produces “Hotel Hell,” “Food Court Wars” and (with Shine America) the “MasterChef” franchise, and has numerous fresh Ramsay projects cooking in the oven.
