Best Hell's Kitchen Contestants

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Frank Cala, Season 15

He should not be on here he can't cook and his attitude sucks. He should've went home instead of Meese

122 Shaina Hayden, Season 16 V 1 Comment
123 Genaro Delillo, Season 16

Why is he on the list he was the worst competitor at the beginning

124 Devin Simpson, Season 16

He is the most mature on the blue team so far. The rest of those guys suck. - ndog

125 Aaron Smock, Season 16
126 Benjamin Knack, Season 7

Who the hell put Benjamin on here? He was a douchebag!

This guy was a true dick but that what a real chefs is!

127 Raj Brandston, Season 8

Raj was a legend! His performance in Hell's Kitchen was completely flawless! I would even go as far as to say his skills in the kitchen exceeded those of Ramsay himself! Whenever someone on his team had messed up, Raj was always there to help out, fix the problem, and keep his team on track. Nothing bad ever came out of the kitchen from Raj, and Ramsay was always impressed with all the hard work and contributions to the blue team coming from Raj. He didn't get along very well with his team though, but we all know that's because his amazing skills had his whole team going insane with jealousy, despite the rest of the blue team not wanting to admit it. It's a shame Ramsay eliminated him from the show so soon, all because he thought Raj was too good and wanted the other chefs to have a fair shot at the prize. In short, Raj is definitely a chef we should all look up to.

He is the funniest contestants in hell's kitchen.

Raj is the best thing to ever happen to all of us, the viewers, Chef Ramsay etc. I really feel like he should have another shot, this time with a portable fridge so he can put his head in it whenever he gets stressed.

Raj was, without a doubt, the greatest hell's kitchen chef ever. - Pinecone1

129 Ed Battaglia, Season 7
130 Russell Kook II, Season 8

Why is he on this list? Russell was a sore loser. He never owned up to anything, and he blamed his team when he lost.

As far as I know the list is not based just on attitude it's also about cooking, so that's probably people like Benjamin (season 7), Corey (season 4), Sabrina (Season 8), Jessica (season 1) and Elise (season 9) were listed. So probably the person even he might think Russell is an ass (which is true), though that the cooking skills merits him to be in this list. And come on like the ranking is 103rd not that he is in the top 20 or higher.

Easily the most consistent and talented chef of Season 8. If anyone deserved to beat him it was Jillian not Nona. So he was a jerk. So what? Just because he was mean doesn't mean he's automatically a terrible chef.

He may be a talented chef but that doesn't excuse high levels of arrogance

Should be higher

131 Boris Poleschuk, Season 8

Why is he on this list?

132 Steven Paluba, Season 9

The person who've named him probably misread Worst for Best, because he was utter crap. Not knowing to cook scallops properly certainly doesn't merit a spot in this list and even moreso when you are the first eliminated by Ramsey (if excluding Jason's withdrawal for health reasons)

133 Rachel Brown, Season 2

She was one of the hardest working contestants ever in Hell's Kitchen.

134 Kimmie Willis, Season 10 V 1 Comment
135 Sharon Stewart, Season 4

When she was in Hell's Kitchen, she didn't do too well but now she has been very successful outside of Hell's Kitchen. She's now an Executive Chef.

Why is she on this lost? She sucked on the show!

Because she's apparently an executive chef now and very successful outside of Hell's Kitchen, and the guy who posted her here thought that was a good enough reason, apparently. I agree with you though. While it's great that her career is doing very well, she shouldn't be on this list, as her performance on the show was very poor.

136 Anton Testino, Season 12

I agree with him being on the list, he is an honorable mention. I know he made 8th and went downwards but he really was a very talented chef. He lead well, had determination, passion and talent. I feel his arrogance got the best of him though.

May have been a bit arrogant near the end but in the beginning he was a very talented chef and a decent leader. Did not deserve to take eight place. He should have at least outlasted Gabriel.

A bit arrogant? He was very arrogant towards the middle and the end! If he didn't have that awful attitude, he probably would have gotten further and he would then deserve a spot on this list.

It's not how you start in this competition it's how you finish

137 Chris North, Season 1

This guy got robbed.

Why is he on here?

I disagree. He certainly wasn't my favorite on Season 1, but he was a lot better than most of them there. He should've at least stayed over "Dirty-Bowl" Jimmy...

138 Andrea Heinly, Season 5

She was a good chef. She worked hard with Chef Ramsay pushing her to the limit.

She was an OK chef, but she got involved in a lot of disputes.

She's constantly being threw under the bus and backstabbed by Carol (especially) and La, but she's hanged on there and finished third

She was probably the most determined chef in the competition. I thought she would win but, to sad she didn't. - spodermanfan1000

139 Elizabeth Bianchi, Season 9

A fine chef, but she made too many costly mistakes.

140 Jen Yemola - Season 3
