Best Hell's Kitchen Contestants

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Sabrina Brimhall, Season 8

Is this some kind of joke? Who in their right mind would ever think about putting Sabrina on this list?!

It's an even bigger joke she's in the top 50

She is determined but that's about it that's acceptable about her. Gail, Jillian, Nona, Vinnie, and some more are way better. But Lisa and Raj are not as good. - spodermanfan1000

It's Vinny not Vinnie from season 3 and Sabrina was a strong cook with 6 montgs of experience but her attitude was spoilt but she did get a little better

62 Tommy Stevens, Season 9

Rock and Roll Chef!

I'd appreciate it if you took him seriously.

Good cook but bad chef

63 Michelle Tribble, Season 14

She only had 4 years experience coming into Hell's Kitchen, yet she kicked ass during her stay!

If she was in season 15, she would have easily won.

64 Dannie Harrison, Season 15

Was a bit too early to add her to the list I think. Lost all respect for her on episode 5

At first she was one of my top picks, then I absolutely hated her. Now, I think she's starting to pull herself back together. Here's to hoping she comes out stronger than ever by the end.

Why is she on here, and at 31 no less? She's delusional and sucks in service!

She has her talent, but in the finals she just abandoned the kitchen

65 Chad Gelso, Season 15

He seems like a very promising contestant so far. Let's just hope his performance doesn't start slipping later in the season.

It's a real shame he went on a downward spiral and couldn't recover. He was one of my top picks when the season began.

Was scared he was going to get the Hassan treatment, but he seems like he's here to stay. - VultureOnAcid

One of the only people in his season I was actually able to root for

66 Jared Bobkin, Season 15

He is an amazing chef who is a badass on every level, and I'm rooting for him to win Hell's Kitchen.

He's been struggling in the previous two episodes, but he has gracefully bounced back this week. - VultureOnAcid

Hope he doesn't get the Alison treatment next week. - VultureOnAcid

Come on man! He sucked!

67 Ashley Nickell, Season 15
68 Manda Palomino, Season 15

Being a business owner I will hire a person who has a better than average knowledge of the job but who has the right attitude and desire to constantly learn more to be the best before I will hire someone who thinks they are the best. Manda shows all the makings of a top chef. Ramsey has to be not thinking if she does not win. Look beyond the the cooking stations and see the top chef.. Manda.

Manda is a fabulous Chef; unfortunately her team mate is constantly throwing her under the bus and has repeatedly said how much he hates her; which makes it exceedingly difficult for her to truly shine.

She does get unfairly criticized but she remains focused and doesn't get rattled under extreme pressure! She appears to know what she is doing and she doesn't make dumb mistakes like many others.

A very underrated contestant along with trev. They both kick ass. I would love to have an awesome mom like her. - ndog

69 Kimberly Roth, Season 16

I love way Kimberly talks and I love her impressions. Her hair is so beautiful and she is hot! She should win.

Nah, Ryan, Heather, Heidi, and Paulie are way better. - spodermanfan1000

Paulie was definitely not better than Kimberly. At least Kimberly had some success pulling herself together when she started to struggle. Once Paulie started falling apart in a dinner service, he never recovered and only got worse. Also, Kimberly can at least own up to her mistakes. Paulie's way too arrogant to even do that. - ResistOppression

70 Keith Greene, Season 2

I do not agree with criticism of this guy, he was perfect the entire time, yes maybe a few flaws, but he was very aware of it. I absolutely liked it when he told Ramsay the truth. Ramsay is not always right. Virginia did not deserve to get to the finals.

When I read the news that he had tragically passed away, I was very sad. A true hard worker, a great attitude to teach others, very highly talented. It's a shame Ramsay didn't see those factors as the better ones, he does run kitchens and work with people all the time, so his attitude is not that big of a deal.

He was great during the first 8 episodes of season 2, but then all that likeability went right down the toilet in the 9th episode when he rudely accused Ramsay of favoritism towards Virginia when he was eliminated.

He should've been in the finally two with Heather.R.I.P :(

71 Julia Williams, Season 3

How is she not in the top 10? She was the sweetest lady in the red team in Season 3, and she sure as hell could cook. Short order cook destroyed more than half the competition; Ramsay should have let her keep her jacket; she deserved it.

When is she coming back

Man I love Julia's voice

Too bad Julia's is a bitter bitch!

72 Joy Parham-Thomas, Season 12

Such a shame she quit... She threw away her strong chance of winning. (sigh)

She probably would've won if she hadn't quit in the middle of service.

I think most likely she'll win this season.

I too thought she would win at first, but I don't think anyone expected that she would quit just like that.

Should've won... Simple

73 Elise Wims, Season 9

Who the hell thought it would be a good idea to put Elise on this list?!

Elise is annoying. She just destroyed Carrie for some reason. Yes, Carrie was annoying some times cause she didn't pay attention but Elise didn't give her a break. Elise would just constantly give her team an attitude. To Carrie, to Krupa, to Jennifer, to Will, to Paul, to Tommy, and many more contestants. - spodermanfan1000

She was painful to watch. A crybaby, worse than Sabrina from season 8. Jennifer should have left after her than before her. - spodermanfan1000

I actually wanna say something about Elise. She may be extremely bossy and she makes mistakes, but compared to some people, she's actually a competent chef. If she toned down a bit, she'd actually be a great chef and leader. It's just her arrogance and hate that got in the way.
I cannot wait to see what she's like in the all star season, I'm hoping she's strengthened some of the good traits about her e.g speaking up, but got rid of some of her bad traits e.g being rude, being big-headed. - Aquaturtle

74 Josh Wahler, Season 3

Josh didn't even had a good service before been kicked out in the middle of service for wasting spaghetti ad infinitum as well as serving raw risotto so he certainly doesn't deserve a top 50 ranking. I would probably not even have him on this list

The heck? He was the most inconsistent chef ever. Along with Andrew (season 1), Fran (season 7), Gabriel (season 12), Jackie (season 15), and Paulie (season 16).

Josh should not be on here!

Your having a laugh. when he got kicked out it made me laugh so much. One of the funniest things I've ever seen on YouTube.

75 Torrece "T" Gregoire, Season 14

"It's just suddenly donned what T stands for: Terrific" -Gordon Ramsay

T for "Terrific" is definitely true. She ran the pass very well. Very impressive. - ndog

T was the most consistent and the most composed and steady of season 14. Probably the best runner up so far.

T was the best runner up since Mary from season 11.

76 Lacey D'Angelo - Season 5

She's like another Gina season 11 - LRMendheim1992

Best? Apart from Raj shes arguably the worst.

Lacey was a bad chef and had an annoying attitude. - spodermanfan1000

Ha ha ha... Very funny

77 Fran Klier, Season 7
78 Eddie Jaskowiak, Season 15

Very bull elimination. Probably could have got a black jacket if it weren't for ratings.

Should be stayed over Frank especially from that dinner service


79 Kristin Barone, Season 15

Very amazing competitor, and a very deserving finalist.

She should have won

80 Matt Hearn, Season 16

Got A GoPro shoved up his arse!
