Top 10 Hell's Kitchen Contestants That Did Not Get a Black Jacket
The Top Ten
Anthony was my favorite chef in all time Zach sucks how many times he got up for elimination
Anthony without a doubt should be number 1. He was absolutely robbed of 5th place; much better than both Susan and ESPECIALLY Zach. Zach had MULTIPLE bad services, and Anthony had ONE MISTAKE ever, and he gets eliminated. It was pathetic.
Anthony was without a doubt one of the best chefs in the 11th season. Zach, Susan and Mary were all pathetic. I think he had the best shot at winning Hell's Kitchen. It's pretty sad how one bad dinner service puts you below a lying, disrespectful chef with like three or four bad services.
He was better than Zach, Susan, Mary and Cyndi.V 7 Comments
Should won that season def
How Josh Trovato got a black jacket in that season and Randy Bell didn't is beyond me. Simply having a lack of experience shouldn't override all of the errors that Josh made in that season. - RAWdonRamsay
Best on da blue team in dat season
Why would he get eliminated over JEN.
Make love to the fish.
That moment Petrozza told Ramsay to send Louross home was one of the saddest moments for me. Jen should have gone home. - DaniMax7
Hey Guys you what funny Petrozza said he had Louross's back and yet he choose to eliminate him over Jen. He does get some karma after him making lose the season finale - princeprettyV 3 Comments
She was pretty much the female Vinny in season 9 where she was the one to beat in the beginning, and then she had an infamous downfall on episodes 7-11. It is a shame too, because she seems to be really likeable (more likeable than Elise).
She saved the blue team midway from collapsing like a deck of cards. She was the leader that the blue team of season 11 didn't have, and we saw what happened to them. - jimmy12lee
She was awesome, helpful, encouraging, everything that Elise isn't
A good chef and seemed like a nice lady, but apparently, sweet girls don't make great cooks. Clapping and wishing good luck to the eliminated chefs is just awesome, her only catty moment was her feud with Jonathon. She was the polar opposite of Elise. - RAWdonRamsayV 5 Comments
By far one of the funniest contestants!
Brian was a good chef and he should have gotten a black jacket over Robyn
He took the piss out of Ramsay in the middle of a service, which may have been what pissed him off, but Brian was a good watch. And a good chef. It's just a shame that apparently Chef Ramsay was looking for passion over someone who could actually cook, hence his decision to get rid of Brian and save Robyn. - RAWdonRamsay

Vinny was my favourite right from the beginning. Was so sad to see him go.
He seems like a nice guy
He should have gotten the black jacket over Russel.
Vinny should have stayed, and Sabrina should have been eliminated. Apparently, again, according to Ramsay, it's passion, passion, passion, and hey, if you can actually cook, that's nice, but doesn't count for much. - RAWdonRamsayV 7 Comments
Very strong chef and his voice reminded me of Chef Scott
Take him off this list! Talent does not excuse or make up for high levels of arrogance!
Really don't get why he was eliminated so early it made no sense
Was the most consistent on a dysfunctional team and had potential to be a leader, sadly he could have used it more though. Also love the hair and the tatoos. - ColinA
Why Ben? He could barely cook and his attitude was crap.
One mediocre service and he gets the boot? His elimination along with Anthony's were the only ones that I thought were bull.
One of the biggest what moments of all hell's kitchen when he was eliminated one bad service and he was out when some get 3 even 4 chances...
Hassan did go down, but I thought he was pretty solid...
He had been forced to switch to a sinking red team and he brought them up to par with his assertiveness. His cooking for one night shouldn't have been the reason he was sent home. That red team got me so angry beacause of their ungratefulness that after the last man standing, Jared, went home, I stopped watching that seasonV 2 Comments
Ramsay kept going after him but I thought Chad was great, the most vocal out of all of them by far and he reminded me of Scott a lot
One of the only good guys of his season
Again, Chad was a strong chef, but Chef Ramsay is looking for an egomaniac who just displays passion and nothing but passion. - RAWdonRamsay
Should finish further than Jackie or (especially) Frank
Jamie was a strong chef.
Brad had more skill than Josh so I think he should be further up the list.
Way better than Josh the Best of the Best in the final
This guy definitely deserved a black jacket. He was a good chef with a positive attitude always being 100!
There's a reason he kept his jacket how Sade didn't get out early I don't know
He should be number 1
French toast crepes Florentine how long
I would have given her the black jacket instead of Suzanne
She is the worst female contestant at cooking meat by a light year
I feel it was absolutely magical that she got to keep her jacket. I felt she had a lot of potential early on. I wonder if her ankle healed it?
Ji was very strong but unfortunately, her injured ankle got in the way.
She showed some dedication.
Very sad. I bet she could beat Danny and win the competition. But the injury. Ji lives matter. - spodermanfan1000
He has a ton of good leadership qualities but if he cooked better he would have a good chance of winning the competition
Easily a black jacket if he hadn't busted his back.
Bret's attitude only appeared after challenge losses, but in dinner service he was easily one of the best.
He was the best chef of the men's team in season 14, if he didn't hurt his back, he would the winner if hell kitchen season 14. I hope he returns in season 17 or 18 and win hell kitchen. Doesn't what happened in the blue kitchen, he found a way to step up every service
He came back as a veteranV 3 Comments
She deserved it more than Elise
Elizabeth didn't get a black jacket cause big lips and weird hair Elise had to get in the way. - spodermanfan1000
Should have been in the final 3
She was not very bright natlele deserved a black jacket more than elise and Elizabeth combined
If only she didn't mess up on that last service. Still can't believe she was eliminated over Josh, though.
I can't believe if she didn't ger a black jacket
One of the weakest chefs to ever go so far in the competition. at least half the red and blue teams were better than her.
She hid so much behind T during the whole season it hurt me
I don't think she ever got a single win in a battle in a challenge.
She was one of the hardest working contestants in Hell's Kitchen. RIP :(
She had passion and she worked hard but still was crap. - spodermanfan1000
He was way better than Paulie
Devin made a lot of stupid mistakes, Paulie isn't used to working on the line, as stated on a previous episode. That explains why Paulie got a black jacket since it was a challenge and not a black jacket service. It was nice to see him pull back for Heather in the finale. - ClashingWizardWill92
Chef Ramsay clearly had a soft spot for Paulie. Devin could cook for sure, but passion always wins out over talent and experience on Hell's Kitchen. - RAWdonRamsay
Why LA? Like someone said on the Best Hell's Kitchen Contestants list, she was a merely sub par performer throughout the season.
LA should have stayed for a bit longer...not worth of a black jacket but should have stayed a bit longer. - spodermanfan1000
I liked her attitude and her fight back but getting a black jacket I can't really imagine. - spodermanfan1000
Her collapse on the 10th episode was sad.
"NO CHEF, DON'T SAY THAT PLEASE! " - Catacorn
"NO CHEF PLEASE DON'T SAY THAT! "
Her exit was hilarious
Why Mary Ellen? She was dull
I interject with this one. Just look at him in night four
Louis- 1 bad service and gets eliminated that early.
Sabrina, Boris, Melissa- More inconsistent and had like 3 bad services in a row. Boris or Sabrina deserved to get eliminated at that time.
Best performer up until the end? HA! His first service was a total fluke! He only got worse and worse as the season progressed. In episode 4, he wasted a bunch of salmon because he didn't cook it to order, and then he tried to cut corners and serve some of the salmon he already cooked, and then he lied when Chef Ramsay confronted him. In episode 10, he kept failing to serve enough portions of potatoes, and snapped at Chef Ramsay when confronted, and he acted childish after he was nominated that night. The next episode, he tried to sabotage Ray with cold sauce. In episode 15, he fell apart even more and even made excuses for his bad performance, and somehow didn't get eliminated. Then the next episode was the final nail in the coffin for Zach. He wasn't the best performer up until the end, he was only the best for the first service. His cooking and his attitude only worsened as the season progressed.
Take him off this list right now!
His attitude was better than others
He had a better attitude then Jen, Robyn, and EliseV 1 Comment
He was only eliminated because of being the worst performer of the night, there were worst contestants than him: nedra, susan and mary. He was consistent. - tadeo5678
I interject with this one. She had a few good moments, but she had a lot of really bad moments.
Plus she was very emotional
Maybe worth of a black jacket but there were way more talented people. Don't get me wrong, Roshni is an amazing competitor but there were better. - spodermanfan1000
Went to early
I definitely agree she shouldve stayed longer
He's good all right
Frank and Chad was worse than Eddie on the service that he was eliminated. How come he was eliminated?!
He was doing this for his family
Share your own opinion...
So what? He never owned uo to his mistakes at least Johnny owned uo to his mistakes,he cheated on his fiancee,never told Heather that he has a fiancee and he isn't the only one who wa doing this for his family...
Shouldn't be on here. While she's good in challenges, she's terrible in services.
She definitely had potential to be a black jacket in my mind.
One beautiful chick.
Why is she on here? She is an immature kid that can't cook to save her own ass and she tried get ramsay drunk for no reason. This gal clearly doesn't belong in Hell's Kitchen or this industry.
Why? she was hopeless. - ndog
Who ever put this might make he posted it on the right site - princepretty
No...no...no...just why is Louie on here? - spodermanfan1000
Are you high? - RAWdonRamsay
She went hero to zero but she did drive her kitchen. - spodermanfan1000
Why is he on here?
I don't agree. Ray was a rather mediocre contestant.
Eh... Not necessarily. She was rather inconsistent.
Shouldn't be on here. She's great in challenges, but horrible in services.
Absolutely not! Steve was the biggest douchebag of season 13!
Why the hell is she on this list?! She's useless! She had little to no good moments whatsoever during her stay! Remember when she overcooked 23 filets and then wasted 7 pounds of scallops?
She is a terrible chef and was DEFINITELY the second worst competitor of the season (of course) next to Raj!
Melissa was a mediocre competitor, very few good moments and should NOT earn a black jacket. - spodermanfan1000
This better be a joke - princepretty
Seriously? This guy was the biggest douchebag in Season 12, and he's tried to escape from punishments
He was a total smartass to chef Ramsay the whole time. When he left, very predictably, he just shoved the jacket into chef Ramsay's hand with both hands to get out of handshaking him. Bigger than that, he had absolutely no talent. In short, what the Hell is he doing here? - RAWdonRamsay
Raj was amazing. Not only was he great at cooking, he was on his feet, helped everyone out and sought out his teammates' potential to be the best chef they could be. Shocking he got eliminated.
Should definitely NOT be on here!
It’s pretty obvious that Raj left hell’s kitchen as a hero. He truly earned a black jacket before anyone else began to rise. A true leader and culinary genius. Just look at his one quote, “YOU GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF SNAKES! YOU HECKING SNEKS! ” Truly the qualities of a leader. If only Chef Ramsay wasn’t forced to take Raj’s jacket due to Raj’s severe pinky injury. Raj is truly a deity amongst us mere mortals. ALL WILL KNEEL BEFORE RAJ OF THE GRANDSTORM.V 3 Comments
Sherkenna should not be on here. She sucked in challenges and gave up too easily in service.
She should've left first - princepretty
