In it for the money, or for the love of cooking?

I was watching a cooking show on TV the other day and it got to me thinking about the amount chefs out there. I wonder what the ratio is for a the chefs that really authentically love to cook and those that are in it for financial gain. There are so many celebrity chefs out in the world today, the industry is saturated with cookbooks, kitchenware,tv shows, even t-shirts...its ridiculous. It is obvious to me that some really do love to cook and love to be involved in our culinary culture. What chefs do you think are in it for the money, or the love of cooking???
