Gordon Ramsay Joins New TikTok Trend With Idiot Sandwich Throwback

Gordon Ramsay threw back to his iconic 'idiot sandwich' comment after being inspired by other celebrities to take part in a TikTok trend.

Over the last few weeks, celebrities including Jennifer Garner and Drew Barrymore have taken to the video platform to share posts soundtracked with the Ting Tings song That's Not My Name.

In the videos, the A-Listers include clips from various moments in their lives to demonstrate the different names they could be known by, with Barrymore's including Casey Becker and Sheila, the name of her characters in Scream and Santa Clarita Diet, respectively.

Check out Ramsay's take on the trend below:


The chef shared his version of the 'My name is...' video on TikTok at the weekend, thanking Garner, Barrymore and Clueless star Alicia Silverstone 'for the inspiration'.

He kicked things off with a clip of him holding a football, over the top of which a caption read: 'My name is Gordon, but they call me...'. The TikTok then offered up a range of insights into Ramsay's life, drawing on moments from his career, family life and pastimes.

One of the most recognisable moments featured in the clip justified Ramsay's nickname of 'The Idiot Sandwich Chef', which he earned after grabbing two pieces of bread and holding them to the sides of TV personality Julie Chen's face.

Though the insult wasn't a far cry from some of the outbursts Ramsay has been known to have in the past, you'll be glad to know that it actually came as part of a skit on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Other names Ramsay said he is known by included 'Chef Ramsay', 'mentor', 'master teacher', 'prankster' and 'hot wings guy', due to his appearance on the YouTube series Hot Ones.

He's also earned the title 'Tilly's Dad', which came accompanied with a clip of Ramsay dancing with his 20-year-old daughter, 'use a cocktail stick chef', 'that chef who roasts people on TikTok', 'where's the lamb sauce guy' and 'the chef with pans' - which, without context, could really refer to any chef in the world.

The final, and perhaps least appealing, nickname cited by Ramsay was 'the guy who spits out food'. Though it's not the most pleasant thing to be known by, I suppose it goes hand-in-hand with his role of being a top chef and teacher.

Viewers have described Ramsay's video as 'iconic', with one person giving the chef another title as they described him as their 'favourite person in the world'.
