Top Ten Most Unfair Hell's Kitchen Eliminations

The Top Ten
1 Nick (Season 17)

Literally did not make one mistake the entire season, then was dumped out during a "three person finale" by a stranger based on one entree. We were robbed off the Nick/Benjamin finale we deserved.

These BS eliminations are one of the reasons I quit watching this show over a year ago.

He could have been in the finals with van or Benjamin

2 Van (Season 17)

His two minor errors on fish were the only mistakes he made all season, and yet he was eliminated for it so we could drag out the Elise/Barbie drama some more. Wasn't even worth it since Barbie went the next service.

3 Jennifer (Season 9)

Fifth place would have been perfectly fine for Elise, who was clearly a worse chef than Jennifer. Yet Ramsay decided to inexplicably kick the most consistent female chef of the season just so Elise could creep into the top 3.

4 Hassan (Season 15)

Hassan was robbed. This guy would have made the top 4 at least, he was streets ahead of Jared. But after his first poor service of the season, mainly due to how dreadful that season's red team was, he is eliminated so we can focus more on fantastic characters like Jackie.

He may have made a couple of mistakes during service, but that was his first poor service. Deserved a black jacket.

5 Giovanni (Season 17)

Robyn's arc was nice and all but she should have been sent home here. Slight overportioning of pasta is not a bigger mistake than being unable to open oysters for your spaghetti oyster dish.

6 Alison (Season 14)

How Josh survived so long in this season no one knows. If Bret had stuck around and Alison hadn't had her worst performance of the season just before black jackets things could have been so much better. Alison was eliminated and Josh became the only weak spot in the greatest lineup of black jackets the show's ever seen.

7 Curtis (Season 8)

Was nowhere near as bad as the 4 nominees that night, but someone had to be sacrificed to get one more episode of Raj.

8 Adam (Season 19)

In my opinion Adam should have been in the Final 4 Because of his talent and confidence in the kitchen and also in my mind he should have been in the final 2 along side Declan

9 Nikki (Season 19)

Grass tastes nice

10 Keith (Season 2)

Not sure about this one, but of course, Keith was more consistent than Virginia. However, his leadership costed him at the end.

Keith was spot on with his assessment on Ramsay's feelings towards Virginia. Rest in peace K-Grizzle

The Contenders
11 Declan (Season 19)

Declan was always supportive of his teammates and the perfect gentleman, but because he was overweight, not one of the 'Popular' people he was bumped off in a rather disrespectful way. Others that went before had some tribute footage, not Declan, they shoved him so fast off the stage it was like he was never there. He was first to be named to the final two, but the fan favorite of course was added as the third; what a setup by the producers.

12 Koop (Season 16)

Paulie lasting so long is baffling, since he was useless past the first few episodes. Quite a few chefs on the blue team were eliminated to save worse chefs, such as Pat, Aaron and Devin, but seeing as Koop's first bad performance was also his last, this was the most egregious.

The blue team was a disaster, and yet one of the few good performers was eliminated at 11th place

Pauline should have gone home

13 Jennifer (Season 17)
14 Brad (Season 3)

Brad wasn't great or anything but he absolutely did not deserve to be outranked by Josh.

Brad only left just so Josh can keep cooking spaghetti.

How Josh made it to black jackets just baffles me.

15 Bobby (Season 4)
16 Louross (Season 4)
17 Elise (Season 9)
18 Petrozza (Season 4)
19 Patrick (Season 10)

Him leaving over Robyn, Tiffany, and Royce of all people was a travesty. The blue team absolutely should have won that service, but Ramsay probably said otherwise specifically so he could get rid of Patrick.

20 Anthony (Season 11)
21 Kanae (Season 18)
22 Ava (Season 20)
