I think it's fairly likely that Ramsay's TV persona is an act. He's a lot worse in the the american show than he is on any of the british ones. He's an entertainer and his over-the-topness is...

If you're a vegetarian because you love animals then mock meat is absolutely no contradiction for you. You like the taste of meat but you don't like killing animals. You get the best of both worlds....
