Worst Hell's Kitchen Seasons

The Top Ten

1 Season 15

If it wasn't obvious before, this season proves that they favor ratings over talent for this show. Decent and likable chefs like Hassan, Eddie, and Chad are eliminated from the competition in favor of loud-mouthed idiots like Jackie and Frank. None of the remaining chefs this season are fit to run Gordon Ramsay's restaurant.

First I like this season because there was great competitors like hassan, ashley, jared, chad and eddie. Then after Eddie's elimination, it sucked because they choose contestants such as jackie and the tomboy dannie to stay longer. I would rather see hassan, chad and eddie with black jackets instead of manda, kristin and ariel. They weren't as good as ramsay think. Ashley was the only female contestant who was likable. Really it was a disaster

Most of the services ended them getting kicked out or both team losing. Honestly none of them are fit to run anything. Take a few years away, and stay away.

Season 15 just the worst had crazy bitch Jackie being a stereotype of jersey people and generally being a terrible person. Sexist frank acting aggressive to anyone who challenged him and was abusive to the women and dannie being a stuck up bitch and leaving in the final service why she wasn't blacklisted I will never know also Ariel did not deserve to win Kristin did dannie walking out basically handed the victory to Ariel.

2 Season 8

I hate every contestant in this season. I know I say this multiple times. Not all winners get my respect. Fans respected Nona until she returns in season 11 to challenge the contestants. It looks like she changed badly. Jillian should look up Gandhi on Google. Vinnie should not cancel side dishes during second dinner service. Antonia was cursed by her awful gumbo dish. I am not willing to connect with any of these contestants, especially Raj. Louis is pretty much forgotten because he didn't last long. Same with Rob and Emily. I can't stand this season.

Major lack of talent along with unlikeable personalities. This season was straight up dumpster fire.

Raj, Russel, Sabrina, Melissa...

Russel, Trev, Sabrina need I say more

3 Season 10

Everyone on the blue team except for justin and clemenza forgot how to cook.

I respect Justin, but Christina was the best chef to watch that season.

Robyn, Kimmie, and Tiffany were what ruined this season for me. Well that and because this season had one of the worst blue teams in HK history.

4 Season 16

I didn't think there could have been a cast as disgustingly unlikable as the one from season 15. The cast of this season proved me wrong.

No one in this season was deserving of being there. Bullying cheating and lying they were all terrible people.

This season in my mind had the WORST BLUE TEAM in hells kitchen's history.

I didn’t like a single person in this season and they all sucked. Also the blue team sucked so much it was unbelievable that they were picked as ‘the most talented chefs around the country’. I mean come on, one chef was a burger chef so that should tell you how pathetic this season was

5 Season 9

It was unfair because of Elise

It is amazing how one witch would completely render this season unwatchable. You already know who the witch is. (drum-roll) ELISE!

Will should have won this season. That's why I'm so mad at it. And, to rid salt in to the wound, Paul won and came back as a judge in other seasons and seemed like a total dick and Elise has been brought back for the All-stars season!

Honestly, this season made me want to break my phone in half. Elise was a major bitch and ruined every. Single. Episode. I finally had enough and decided to just read who won, and stop watching. Its pathetic how producers will cut off good chefs in favor of drama. In the end though, it was just about making money for Gordon and the show, not about real quality content. I do not know if this show is still airing, but if it's still like this, it's a miracle that it's up and alive.

6 Season 12

Mike and Demarco not going home sooner ruined it for me. The only saving grace was Scott, Jason, and rochelle.

Much of this season was severely lacking in talent. Much of the chefs that did have talent had no likeability due to their attitudes.

The following chefs I despised

Gaurav-putting his fingers into risotto
Beth- being crybaby
Sandra-nearly ruined Jason's final service
Anton-talking back to Chef Andi
Nicole-being disrespect to Chef Ramsay
Mike-insulting Ramsay during signature dish
DeMarco-poor dinner services
Simone-quit before chef Ramsay making decision

I lost respect for Joy after she quit mid service. She had the potential to be finalist, but ended up whining like Nilka. I did not like Gabriel that much for being disastrous on seafood. I don't have much to say about Chris, Ralph, Richard and Bev because they did not stand out that much throughout the season.

7 Season 13
8 Season 4

Pathetic chefs

I really liike elise stop hating on her

No dice. I, along with many many more viewers found Elise to be deplorable in both the seasons she competed. - HanSolo69

9 Season 11

The Blue Team was by far the worst performing team on Hells Kitchen. They only won one challenge and consistently had men kicked out of the kitchen by Chef Ramsay due to poor performance and leadership. The only outstanding chef on that team was Jon.

I stopped watching this season like halfway (after Raymond's elimination). Dan is one of my most despised contestant in that season. Jeremy is pretty much as bad as Raj. Gina and Sebastian are the most annoying contestants; I'm glad they're removed from the game early on (don't forget the puppet and Zacky Wacky thing respectively). It's too bad Ja'nel couldn't get a job due to drugs. Jon and Anthony are pretty much the fan favourites of the season. Overall, one of my least favourite season of the series.

This season had the worst blue team in HK history

The only chef who was any good or fun to watch got third place.

10 Season 3

I thought ALL of the contestants were weak from the beginning and no one proved themselves, in my opinion, by the end of the show. The winner seemed to win by default simply because one needed to be chosen. They were they least talented bunch of all the seasons and I don't think any of them deserved the prize.

I wouldn't say ALL though. Rock was one of the best contestants on the show in my opinion. Bonnie and Jen also did really well and were likable too. It's just too bad everyone else didn't deliver. - HanSolo69

Rock and Jen were the only consistent chefs of the season.

The Contenders

11 Season 2

Only saving thing was Heather otherwise I don't think there would have been a winner...

Ramsay was biased towards Virginia

12 Season 17

All-Stars was by far one of the most controversial and shocking seasons. Though the blue team and red team were equally consistent and inconsistent throughout the competition, eliminations did not go in any favor for the men (except Josh and Jared). Again with drama queens like (Elise, Robyn, Barbie) being spared, compared to other chefs (notably Dana) that had been consistent up to the point of their elimination, is drama going to always win the game? Of course not! There were many shocking eliminations that ruined the season completely noting:

Ben (Walanka) - Bounced back after sending an undercooked slamon. His health issues caused him to set a record for a chef to be eliminated on the winning team.

Giovanni - Lost the "Cook For Your Life" challenge although Robyn's punctured oysters should have single-handedly sealed her fate.

Van - Only had issues in terms of communication. For the red team, Barbie and Elise argued throughout the night nearly taking down the ...more

13 Season 18

Some of the decisions and things that have happened on this season I find to be baffling.

One positive thing I will say about this season is how early Jen was kicked out of the competition. Saved us from a potential migraine.

Now to list the negatives:

Kevin and T were my top picks from the beginning. To watch them both crash and burn as quickly as they did was disheartening to say the least.

Admittedly, I was rather surprised seeing Roe being eliminated when she was. I already knew Mia was going to get a black jacket, but I don't think Ramsay made the right call keeping her after she tried shifting the blame on the blue team's loss on Kanae.

Once the teams became men vs. women, it became clear how dysfunctional the men's team truly was (excluding Motto). The inability for them to win challenges, with punishment segments containing more drama than an episode of Real Housewives, and their sheer incompetence on a majority of their services was very ...more

The season with the overall strongest chefs in Hell's Kitchen - Dave and Kevin
