He's apparently a very good and kind father. As a result of having an abusive father/shit background and druggie brother, he said in the "Born Famous" tv show those still guide his actions and is still at the back of his mind all these years.I have to say I respect him for not giving the kids on Masterchef Jr his usual aggressive treatment.
Couldn't begin to tell you what season it was, but I remember watching a Hell's Kitchen episode and one of the contestants griped about something. Gordon clearly starts to laugh or at least grin widely in response, but the camera cuts.Now he's the one puttin out the pain and people take it so fucking personally. The TV shows highlight his ranting and raving but seem to cut out his level-headed stuff.
