Best known in the U.S. as the host of Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen, back in his native U.K., Ramsay is an even bigger celebrity. He owns several restaurants there and appears on television even more frequently. However, Ramsay is also a bit of a fitness nut who enjoys running marathons and he hopes to compete in the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii later this year as well.
The Chef has admitted that climbing Everest has been an ambition of his for some time, and if his business obligations and family allow him to pursue it, he plans on giving it a go. Ramsay joins other celebrity climbers such as Bono and David Beckham who are rumored to be climbing Kilimanjaro later this year for UNICEF.
One thing is for sure, should Ramsay elect to go for the climb in 2009, you can bet that his team will be the best fed on the mountain.
