Gilbert "Gil" Chesterton is the host of "Restaurant Beat" on KACL talk radio. His middle name is Leslie. He is pompous, like Frasier, but also very effeminate. He is suspected by his coworkers of being gay, but he claims to be married to Deb. However, his coworkers say "they thought that was the cat". In one episode, however, Frasier has sexual dreams about Gil, and he tries to create symbolic meanings for these dreams, but isn't fully satisfied. He is generally well known for wearing a bow tie, and speaking with an English accent (which Frasier once says is fake). He drives a red BMW with a red interior, as learned in the third season. In the final season, it is implicitly acknowledged that he is homosexual. At one point he tries to coach Frasier into acceptance when the radio shrink is accidentally seen entering a gay bar, leading him down the "yellow brick road of pride and self-acceptance". However, he is also seen entering a gay bar during the ending credits. Despite being pompous, he gets along well with his coworker Bulldog Briscoe, as the two are seen conspiring on many occasions. Gil is named for the real-life Gil Chesterton, a former teacher of the show producer Christopher Lloyd. He is played by Edward Hibbert.
