Is Gordon Ramsay autistic?

Much of what we know about Ramsay is based on the role he plays in Hell’s Kitchen. Since the show is all about getting good ratings, who knows what Ramsay really is like off the cameras. Much of his behavior and the language that goes flying from his mouth is done on purpose to get a reaction. Autistic individuals aren’t looking for reactions.

    1. Sarah, what exactly makes you believe Gordon Ramsey is autistic?
      I would be intrigued since not only do I have a 6 year autistic child but on looking at the traits of Gordon Ramsey, he does appear to conduct himself in that manner.

  1. Ramsey acts exactly like many aspies. Normal people often fail at logic, which can result in confusion and/or passive aggressive behavior. Therefore when someone asks for his help then balks when he tells them what to do, it is a moment of extreme frustration to an aspie whose first line of thought is “Then why are you here wasting my time when I could be helping someone who will actually take advantage of this situation?” In other circumstances, such as his cooking shows, he again becomes annoyed when simple logic is not employed. Examples might be someone choosing to work on a food item they know nothing about on a team challenge, or never tasting an item, checking to see if an item is raw, etc. Patience is not a strong suit for highly intelligent Aspies. However you see a much softer side when he deals with children because there is less expectation.
    It is an amazing thing about reality television in that so very many people seem to go onto shows quite clueless regarding the level of difficulty or even what to expect. This leads to exasperation for GR who simply expects you to be better prepared (“You never cooked a hard boiled egg before…?!”) or at least compliant when asking for assistance. Then again Aspies are rather idealistic, which is why they often appear at the top of their game. Only an aspie can truly appreciate the job he’s doing and the great deal of control he likely has.
