6 Gina – Season 11 I hate this lady so much. Gina is one of those things I despise about season 11. There are other contestants I hated from his season, but let me get to the point. Gina did make good scallops on first try, but later, it got worst. Her talking puppet really grinds my gears. It’s as annoying as Sebastian’s big mouth when men took an old school bus from Vegas back to Hell’s Kitchen. She made a bad excuse to leave the competition. There were no obvious symptoms of her illness. Hell’s Kitchen staff should never chose this lady ever. I don’t want to hear from her ever. Annoying and stupid! She even Quit herself off the show! Because she didn’t like how disrespectful everybody on the show was. She talks like a goat! She is what made Season 11 bad! I was glad when she got off the show! She did not even know what she was doing and who brings there pupet into hells kitchen? She bailed on her team because she couldn’t handle people telling her the truth. 0/10 would not hire if I had a restaurant. Like Chef Ramsay normally says, you never give up or bail on your team – Aquaturtle V 9 Comments

Chef Hesse, who appeared on Hell’s Kitchen, is a quarter of the man he used to be after losing a whopping 455 pounds – and likely saving his life in the process! Hesse once tipped the scales at 610 pounds, but is now down to a svelte 155, thanks to gastric bypass surgery, healthy eating and exercise.Heart problems forced Hesse, 37, to withdraw from Gordon Ramsay’s popular Fox reality series in 2009, after appearing on seasons five and six. “When I was younger, I was a heroin addict for 15 years, a thief, and even spent time in jail,” the New Yorker told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “I then traded one addiction – drugs – for another: food! Soon I ballooned to the size of a baby whale. By the time I was 34, I had suffered three heart attacks!””My last heart attack, in 2013, happened in front of my then two-year-old son, Ayden. And to top it off, I almost fell on top of him, which could have crushed him!”Hesse said he finally realized he needed help, and underwent a life-saving gastric bypass surgery in 2014. “I’m down to 155 pounds and have never felt better,” he said. Hesse now works as a corporate executive chef on the East Coast and makes time to exercise at least five days a week.”I would love to be on (Hell’s Kitchen) one last time, to show Gordon what I’m made of. The last time I was on, he told me to get healthy,” Robert explained. “It would be closure for me and all of the people who have been rooting for me.”

Joan Buck, the television critic for Vogue, was one of many who considered it to be exhilarating television. She likens Hell’s Kitchen to a “Shakespearean tragedy on crystal meth,” saying, “In a way he was the first reality show that wasn’t stuck on a desert island. The way he pumps up the fire and metal makes it all terribly exciting. On the other hand, Hell’s Kitchen also makes you not want to eat out at a restaurant.”

An absolute joke. Clearly the worst in my opinion. I mean, I know that many contestants were likely just picked to provide entertainment and were not expected to have a chance, but even if I hadn’t known that, Raj gives it away.

7 Russell – Season 8 This guy has to be the biggest sore loser I have ever seen. He never owned up to anything, then when he lost the finale he blamed his team and said that he would stop any of them from getting a job in the same city he worked in. I personally think he was worse than Raj any day Russel was and will always stay a good-for-nothing hateful bully. Always quick to blame and put down everyone else but never owning up to his own mistakes. Remember how many times he dissed Boris by pointing out Russia? I, for one, would never eat anywhere that thick lazy bully cooks. I remember watching episode 5 In season 8 Russell was swearing at the prom committee students (three teenager students) when he was in pissed off mode during the punishment was the most outrageous piss off mode I have ever seen. He made vinny go home because of 1 horrible service, trev and vinny both hated him and he called borris a russin pig what a russhole V 18 Comments
No matter. As reality television came into fashion, Ramsay was perfectly positioned for stardom, a kind of British food-world equivalent to Donald Trump. In 2004, Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares made its debut on Channel 4 in Britain and earned big ratings. Then came Hell’s Kitchen, which did well too and was soon being developed for American television by Fox.
“I would love to be on (Hell’s Kitchen) one last time, to show Gordon what I’m made of. The last time I was on, he told me to get healthy,” Robert explained. “It would be closure for me and all of the people who have been rooting for me.”
For the last five years, chef Gordon Ramsay has appeared weekly on the reality-TV show Hell’s Kitchen. He curses, he yells, and spit flies forth from his mouth as he frequently reduces hopefuls to tears.
What also sparks the ire of foodies is that Ramsay’s shows are filled with people with questionable skills and competence. “What I don’t like about Hell’s Kitchen is the quality of the contestants,” says Anthony Bourdain, host of No Reservations. “I don’t think anyone I’ve seen on the show could ever credibly be expected to handle the prize, which is to be the chef of a Gordon Ramsay restaurant. It’s ridiculous. Whatever you say about Gordon, he runs pretty good restaurants. He may not be a groundbreaking genius, but the places are quality restaurants, and these people are transparently incapable of working at that level. None of them would last two episodes on Top Chef.”
Though Ramsay has been on a steady climb where TV is concerned—he reportedly earns $250,000 an episode of Hell’s Kitchen and several million a year with other small-screen endeavors—his restaurant empire has been struggling. In 2009, according to Bloomberg News, Ramsay had about 20 restaurants, in Dubai, New York, Paris, Prague, and Tokyo, among others. But unlike most celebrity chefs, who sign “consulting deals” with investors who shoulder the cost of building and operating the restaurant (essentially, a licensing agreement), Ramsay owned most of his business outright with a holding company controlled by his father-in-law, Chris Hutchinson. So when the global recession took hold and several of the restaurants earned a reputation for being serviceable but uninspired, Ramsay was stuck footing the bill.
Hell’s Kitchen was planned to air weekly from September to December 2010. However, due to Fox’s televising of the Major League Baseball playoffs and the World Series in October and November, the show was broadcast with double episodes from September 22 until October 13 in addition to double episodes on November 10 and single episodes from November 17 until the finale on December 15. This is the first time that the series took more than a week off while the competition was in progress. Cablevision did not carry Fox during the first sixteen days of the hiatus due to a carriage dispute.
He continues: “I come from a place where humiliation was part of the training and it did not make me a better cook. I have been an abusive chef myself and I had poor results. It made me unhappy, so we changed how we manage the kitchen at Le Bernardin and I think we’ve had good results. We have our bad days, one of us snaps, but then we are sorry and we make sure that it won’t happen again. I just think the show is wrong. We can find a way to be entertaining and funny without resorting to behavior like that.”
The first half of each episode consists of a team challenge, in which the winning side gets a reward of some sort of leisure activity, while the losing side has to clean up and prepare both kitchens, as well as some activity that is not so pleasant. Afterwards, the teams compete in executing a dinner service, during which Ramsay can impose additional punishments or kick chefs out of the kitchen. The losing team(s) nominates chefs to be considered for elimination. Ramsay can also nominate chefs, and ultimately sends a chef home. At six chefs left, the teams merge to one, and the chefs compete as individuals.
