Top 10 Worst Hell's Kitchen Contestants


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Chino - Season 9

He did terrible in ALL FOUR services he was in.

Chino sucked big time. He should've been one of the first one kicked off.

"Chino took his time in Hell's Kitchen very seriously. The problem is he seriously couldn't cook." -Gordon Ramsay

Only 60th? He should be higher. He sucked big time.

62 Jen - Season 3

Why is she on here?!

Claimed she was 26 but when Ramsey wanted to see her get angry before putting her on the pass she kept harping on about 'working hard for 15 years'... Really, Jen? You were working really hard to become a strong chef...since the age of 11? Hmm

God, she wound me up! The serving food from the bin was a reason to kick her out on the spot! I would never trust a place she worked in. She lied and treated Bonnie (who I love) like crap. She shouldn't be this far down!

Jen was great! But the Jen in season 4 different story... - spodermanfan1000

63 Ben - Season 4

This guy is a piece of scum - he never admits to his mistakes when he makes mistakes & tries to pass the blame on to "different cooking techniques", hides behind Bobby's back & is an upscale bully towards Matt & even Louross. I seriously can't believe Petrozza chose Ben as his second pick in the finale, because this guy is a complete tosser!

I'm so glad he went home before matt

I can't really say I agree with that. I hated Ben, but I hated Matt even more.

"Different cooking techniques"? Dude, a risotto is a risotto.

This guy can't even deliver a pizza properly, he should've stayed being an electrician for a living because he is the worst cook in Hell's Kitchen history

My worst teams
Blue - Seth, Raj, Ben, Tom Poley, Josh, Chino, Steven, Jeff, Gourav
Red - Andrea, Colleen, Robyn, Kimmie, Nedra, Gina, Elise, Lacey, Louie

64 Andrea - Season 5

Oh come on, Andrea wasn't that bad!

Your talking about Lacey right

Lacey whined the most, yes Andrea has a mouth and annoying but Lacey whines almost every episode

Should've been eliminated instead of Ben, who should have been in the final 3

65 Sandra - Season 12

Horrible attitude, constantly putting her team mates down, not a team player. It was inevitable that she would make the mistake of giving attitude to someone who would give it back to her aka Jason.

Her behavior during the finale was the worst. She didn't even care or want to help Jason in the finale, and was nasty and argumentative the whole time!

Very inconsistent from the start from the beginning. Didn't benefit the blue team.

Self centered snob. Unwilling to work in a team, surly and moody. Ugh.

66 Kashia - Season 12

Somebody buy her a pair of glasses. Maybe she can stop a squinting then.

THAT VOICE! I was happy to see her go just because I didn't worry about getting a headache every time she was on. And she screwed up basic things surfing service.

Couldn't understand a word she said all series.

She was always picking on a Melanie.

67 Susan - Season 11

Urrrg I really couldn't stand this woman. She talked about how she wanted to prove herself in every episode but would choose weaker contestants to compete against in competitions. Not to mention that she constantly needed help from other chef, even in independent challenges, but then would slate them behind their backs. The fact that she made it that far and still didn't know how to make a half decent lamb is beyond me. How can you not tell the difference between raw and cooked! Smh

Susan constantly disrespected her teammates, served raw lamb 3 TIMES, and was the most undeserving chef of all time to get a black jacket. - alexcousins

It was always somebody else's fault. She always said the worst things when it came to nominating people of course nobody wants to get put up

Definetily NOT the worst contestant in HK, but is nevertheless so disgustingly fake (acts too hard in front of GR) it's still worth mentioning her. Susan obviously has no idea how to cook meat, period. She acts nice in front of her teammates but trash talks them behind their backs CONSTANTLY. Shouldn't have gotten a black jacket in my opinion.

68 Carrie - Season 9

Watching Carrie in Episode 9 when she refused to leave the kitchen and argued with Ramsay and saw no wrong in standing up for herself like that felt like passing a kidney stone

Jeff came to mind

Got better

She annoying what a bitch and she was scared of Elise Elise was better than carrie!

Elise is not better than Carrie! I didn't like Carrie, but she was nowhere near as horrible as Elise!

69 Beth - Season 12

What a useless crybaby!

The way she yelled and cried was the most annoying thing ever. Her voice was too high, she was a a terrible cook and I definitely preferred the rest of the team.

"All I want to do is go home and cry to my mama." Spoken like a true quitter.

Completely useless! and a crybaby! Idc if she is sweet to you guys. Get over it. She can't cook - ndog

70 Joy - Season 12

What a shame. She could have won if she didn't snap and leave in the middle of service.

Well I see that she has hatred for Jason and Scott and is willing to sabotage the men

I couldn't stand how her and Kaisha wouldn't put each other up and screwed everyone else over. Completely selfish and immature.

At least she wasn't Nicole

71 Jessica - Season 12

Her attitude throughout and when leaving came off as extremely desperate. I kept wondering if she had some major issues going on in her personal life (like being at immediate risk of being homeless again) to act the way she did.

Bad attitude. She cried when eliminated from Hell's Kitchen. That is not the attitude of a aspirational head chef. I think that she should have been eliminated BEFORE bev.

If I were a contestant in that season, I wouldn't have sympathy for for. She was tearful for losing against Richard after elimination cookoff. She nearly sabotaged Scott's final dinner service. I would never forgive her for anything.

I loved Jessica I cryed when chef folded her to leave she should have had another chance

72 Melissa - Season 3

She was not only was disrespectful when the bride and groom were trying to do a sample tasting, she tried telling the others to not do as Ramsey told them. She also ruined the duck breast and tried to boss everyone on the show. NOT a good idea.

She was like the dictator in Hell's Kitchen. She commanded everyone to do what she told and even said to not listen to what Chef Ramsay says. And Jesus Christ that hair, comb that hair you look like someone on drugs. Don't get me started on that horrible duck breast...

She's nasty & she's like Hitler in the Kitchen

She is the only chef who regretted her mistakes, but not the experience. Was a good chef for the first two episodes, but went completely downhill for her. Her attitude was awful and the leader of Hell's Bitches, but she acted like a leader, unfortunately in the end, she didn't cook like one.

73 Sarah - Season 14

Sounds a clone from Katie from last season. Starting very strong but falling out flat been totally clueless in the last episode. It has been a while since there has not been someone that inconsistent. She was doing relatively well during the challenges, minus the excessive nuts in the lasagna. But for some reason after been berated by Ramsay for asking him to give the team another following numerous mistakes on the apps station during episode 3, this is where she started to sink. The raw burger accelerated the decent and the overcooked lamb and chicken was the final nail in the coffin. Too bad at the start, she sounded to have potential and be black jacket-worthy. But she ended up like Colleen (season 5) that means a cooking instructor that is actually mediocre in cooking in the line.

Should've won the competition.

74 Josh - Season 14

Quite the strange behavior this guy and possibly scary too. On top of that, he was serving lamb with full of blood to one of the top chefs in world in Greek cuisine and whether he was actually the one who put the cream in the mash potatoes (probably during prep work) instead of Randy we will never know.

He was an OKAY chef but Allison should have got a black jacket NOT him. He was even nominated like 5 times (4 more then Allison).

Josh was a really nice guy with an incredible attitude. He was just stupid beyond belief.

I love how people went from I LOVE JOSH, I HOPE HE WINS! To I HATE JOSH, I HOPE HE GOES NEXT- OH DAMN IT HE'S GOT A BLACK JACKET but hey at least he was the first of the black jackets to go

75 Kevin - Season 15

A caesar salad pizza with pre-made dough and bottled dressing? Just like Monique, using canned sauce. The only reason he made it 5 episodes deep was because of Hassan, who was later eliminated. Kevin was eliminated in the middle of dinner service, which is pretty sad.

An utter joke. He started off bad with his signature dish (I don't get it. They should know by now that premade ingredients are a no-no in the signature dish challenge), and was a trainwreck during service. This dude can't even do anything right without Hassan jumping in to help! Once Hassan switched teams, Kevin received the pink slip during the very next service because he can't even cook scallops.

Having your first dish sent to Ramsey use pre-made everything is a terrible way to start.

Although his dish itself sucked, using pre-made dough and pre-made dressing? What a joke! - ndog

76 Ariel - Season 15

She's disrespectful, arrogant and straight up annoying. She didn't deserve to be in the finale or win. What a disgrace to previous winners.

She's a good chef and a strong leader. Just a shame she lacks a likable personality.

What!? She was my favorite winner!

Sounds like a clone of Roe.

77 J - Season 5

He seems like a nice guy, but he just can't cook.

This guy was on a downward spiral big time to the point where Chef Ramsay couldn't take it anymore and fired him in the middle of dinner service.

He served a butt of lettuce to customers in the fourth service & got eliminated during the seventh service as he made numerous mistakes on the fish station & his problems were the sole catalyst for his teams loss. Shame two, he (in the first three services any ways) could've had what it takes to get a black jacket.

It's too bad that he went on a downward spiral. He was such a nice guy.

78 Sebastian - Season 11

It's a kitchen, not a place for comedians.

First of all, Zacky Wacky? Really? Then he tried to come back into the kitchen not once, but twice after Gordon Ramsay kicked him out.

Although he's infamous for saying Zacky Wacky, he called Michael Mikey Wikey. Those nicknames are so ridiculous. Also he annoyed the whole team during the punishing bus ride back to Hell's Kitchen. He returned to kitchen not once, but twice. Chef Ramsay did not welcome him back. He's an idiot chef.

Sous chef my ass!

79 Antonia - Season 8

She had the worst signature dish in Hell's Kitchen history.

She has got to be the most useless contestant ever in Hell's Kitchen history. Her signature dish was horrible and she left before the first dinner service even began. She should be at least in the top 5.

That migraine she got was god's punishment for making everyone ill.

Karma Strikes...

80 Lovely - Season 6

If people were named for their cooking, her name wouldn't be Lovely. It would be Useless. - Gordon Ramsay

Crap cook, wouldn't take responsibility for her actions as proven by her age

Her cooking was not very "Lovely" but I liked her personality.

Out for 45 minutes feeling bad.
