Gordon Ramsay says he has "more money than I’ll ever need," in an interview with Forbes magazine. He just landed in the No. 21 spot on the magazine’s Celebrity 100, making an estimated $60 million last year with 26 restaurants, including three in Las Vegas.

His four shows — Hell’s Kitchen, Hotel Hell, MasterChef and MasterChef Junior — shot him up to Fox’s biggest reality star. Forbes estimates that Ramsay generates more than $400,000 an episode.

Up next, Ramsay wants a scripted show "perhaps dramatizing the kitchen the way Entourage glorified the talent agency office."

As for his restaurants, Ramsay’s new model means he doesn’t own them. Instead, he "manages — and lends his fame — to a burger joint, a steak house and a pub." For that, Ramsay gets 6 percent to 9 percent of the revenues and 10 percent to 15 percent of the earnings.
