What do Gordon Ramsey, Rachel Ray, Paula Deen, Guy Fieri and Todd English have in common?

First, they occupy similar territory on the Curmudgeon’s Scale of Celebu-irritants (In the Kathy Griffin/Kanye range, but significantly lower than a full Kardashian).

Second, they have very nice teeth.

Third, if you Google one of their names plus the word “merchandise” you get well over a million hits.

And, oh yeah, they make Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s top earning “chefs.”
