Gordon Ramsay is back at No. 1 on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Personalities chart after a productive week on social media that sees him leap 46 percent in overall social media conversation, according to MVPindex.

The Top TV Personalities chart is a ranking of the most popular TV personalities on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex. The chart’s methodology blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. TV personalities are defined as performers primarily known for their appearances on their own TV series, including hosts of entertainment/news shows. The latest tracking week ended July 18.

Chris Hayes takes the No. 2 spot on the latest chart (dated July 26), while Tyra Banks, Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert round out the top five.

    Nearly every day is full of promo for Ramsay, who currently has two shows – The F Word andMasterChef – airing on FOX in the United States. But Ramsay also took time to continue roasting cooking submissions from followers on Twitter, telling one user that given a choice between the four cupcakes presented to him, he’d choose the glass of water in the corner of the shot.
