122 Clemenza Caserta, Season 10

He is one of better blue team member of season 10

123 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)

124 Rachel Brown, Season 2

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

125 Kimmie Willis, Season 10 V 1 Comment
126 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.

127 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...

128 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

129 Elizabeth Bianchi, Season 9

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

130 Jen Yemola - Season 3
131 Giovanni Filipponi, Season 5

This guy was very assertive and grew to be a father figure towards the other contestants

132 Salvatore Coppola, Season 7

He may not have been the best contestant cooking-wise, but he was definitely one of the funniest contestants on the show.

Salvatore may be a bad chef, but he greatly makes up for it in humour

133 Alicia "LA" Limtiaco, Season 5

Why LA? She was a merely sub-par performer through out the show

134 Gail Novenario, Season 8

One of the very few likable contestants in season 8

Gail made a lot of mistakes but she fought back I thought that she would at least get to the finale. She is very like able. - spodermanfan1000

ONE OF THE BEST CHEF IN SEASON 8! Even Nona though so as she was the first pick in Nona's brigade.

Jillian won't stop talking about her (in the bad way) it's like she's obsessed with Gail. by the way Gail was a good chef.

135 Andy Husbands, Season 6

Oh so he's very successful. So, he doesn't belong on the list as he put in a poor performance on the show

And here's the thing: I'm sure a lot of the chefs that were on Hell's Kitchen in the past are very successful now. While it's great that they're successful outside of Hell's Kitchen, if their performance on the show was poor, then they really don't deserve a spot on this list.

136 Fernando Cruz, Season 13

I really thought he had a good chance to get a black jacket. I did not expect to see him get eliminated just like that.

One of the ONLY likable contestants in Season 13

137 Jessica Cabo, Season 1

She cried every time a good friend was eliminated like, Wendy, and Mary Ellen

Shouldn't be on here

138 Louis Repucci, Season 8

It seemed like he would be one of the top contenders at first. All it took was one horrible service to cause his early downfall. A real shame.

Why is everyone saying he could have been one of the top contenders? He really was not that good to begin with.

139 Sade Dancy, Season 13

She's only 76th on this list, not that she is in the top 20. Sure she had a bad attitude, but she was never nominated once (though in the Italian night service she should have been nominated instead of Ashley).

Sade definitely deserves to be higher on this list. She deserved to be in the final instead of Bryant

Whoever put Sade on here needs to watch Episode 10!

140 Gina Melcher, Season 9

My other decision would've been Elise

She was a good chef but it took her one bad service to get sent home. I wish they would've kept her and given Carrie the boot instead

Gina did some mistakes but Elise did many mistakes and had a bad attitude, Carrie and Elsie should have both left, Gina is awesome but...I still don't think she was enough to make it to the finale even if Elise and Carrie went home. - spodermanfan1000
