Top 10 Worst Hell's Kitchen Contestants


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Melissa - Season 8

Should be ranked higher than this. She might be the worst of season 8 after of course Raj. Did raw pizza (in which Boris mocked Ramsey), wasted a lot of garnishes, unable to make a proper sushi roll (with Gail), cooked dover soles like Gandhi's flip-flops, cooking filets mignons during the apps stage and wasted an entire stack of scallops

Let's just say that she wasted lots and lots of food during her time in Hell's Kitchen.

Wasted 23 fillets & 3 pounds of scallops

She is the raj for women. She had horrendous perfomances, especially her last two services in which she wasted 23 filet mignon and a 3 pounds scallops. I would rather eliminate her in episode 4 or 5

82 Aaron - Season 13

When he said his final words after being eliminated, he literally said a speech as if he was expecting a montage - "When I first walked in Hell's Kitchen" "hardest thing I ever fought for" "much harder than cooking on a regular kitchen" Sorry but no, stop acting like you're getting one, because you aren't.

"I found it quite strange that Aaron didn't have the will to succeed. He clearly didn't belong in Hell's Kitchen." - Gordon Ramsay

More like "Aaron knew he was out of his depth in Hell's Kitchen. I just put him out of his misery."

How come he wasn't eliminated on Episode 7 instead of Ashley. Aaron was way worst than Ashley (Aaron was nominated on Episode 1) and was far less interested in HK than Ashley. Ashley was treated much more unfairly compared to Aaron by Chef just because it was the Italian Consulate that got served undercooked calamari by Ashley.

Should've been eliminated in episode 1 along with JP. His signature dish and service performance sucked just as much as JP's.

83 Frank - Season 13

Not performing to the caliber of an executive chef. The fact it showed the clip at the closing of the season of Ramsey asking Frank what happened in the final service pretty much shows that Frank was the main reason why Ramsey chose La Tasha as winner instead of Bryant

He's a nice guy, but he's definitely not the best chef by any stretch of the imagination.

In terms of personality, he's WAY better than Frank from season 15.

Sabotaged Bryant like Clemenza and Royce sabotaged Justin,Dan sabotaged Mary

84 Roe - Season 13

She is the worst chef of season 13, big mistakes, didn't deserve to receive a black jacket, nominated 5 times. There were better chefs to receive a black jackets (Fernando or Sterling). This woman just can't cook properly and was only there to put drame

Like Andy from season 6, just too many mistakes and inconsistencies.

Is Roe a man and how did she get not get kicked off before Santos

Gets frazzled in many services

85 Meese - Season 15

She made too many rookie mistakes on the show. She should've been eliminated in Episode 3, although you guys are entitled to your opinion on whether you agree or disagree with me.

Although she is hot, she can't cook and is too quiet during service. Could have went home on episode 3, but at least she went home on the following episode. Better late than never. - ndog

She has been nominated three times in a row before getting the boot! You know what they say, "One strike, two strikes, three strikes. You're OUT! "

It seems she doesn't participate in NASA's achievements.

86 Aziza - Season 16

While she never really stood out during her stay, she really wasn't THAT bad.

87 Fernando - Season 13

He shouldn't be this high. He was a bad chef in his first few and last few services, but was great in the middle.

He should be lower than this, but he was a crap chef on his last service.

Fernando wasn't even that bad. Why is he on here?

88 DeMarco - Season 12

Nominated every night he was there

Nominated for elimination FIVE times in a row. That's a new record.

Demented, Demoted, Denied-He just wasn't there when his teammates needed him

He was a disaster right from the start.

89 Don - Season 10

He did absolutely nothing on the first night

Why did Ramsay not accept his nominee off The Blue Team?!

90 Christina - Season 4

Whoever put her in this list must be a fan of Jen and/or Matt

She does not belong on this list.

Definitely doesn't belong on this list!

Ramsay was biased towards he like Virginia

91 Ben - Season 5

Yes, he should be on this list. He constantly panicked during service and made costly mistakes, then blamed others for his own shortcomings. Then he has the nerve to talk up what a great chef he was afterward and how he was never the one that deserved to go home. I don't mind an egomaniac if they can deliver in the kitchen, but this guy proved constantly he was a fraud and nowhere near what he was talking himself up as. Ramsay doesn't realize what credibility he loses when people like this guy make it that deep into the competition.

Shouldn't be on here

But in the end I do acknowledge that he is clumsy, has a big ego and like Andrea he just wasn't quite good enough to make it in to the final four

Oh yeah, the best one been serving the chocolate brownies at the pass before the appetizers got even cooked.

Wish he could have stayed for a little longer in season 17. It's too bad his health got the best of him.

92 Siobhan - Season 7

I feel pretty sorry for her being pushed around by benjamin. - ndog

That would be Stacey your talking about

Worst chef in season 7 in my opinion.

93 Curtis - Season 8

Curtis wasn't even that bad, he had trouble on the sushi station, that Ramsay put him on knowing that he couldn't do the sushi challenge, but he did fine on the first night. Raj should've gone home that night instead

Yeah, how come chef Ramsay eliminated him, it was just a sushi. He should've been on another station.

I wish they kept him and given Russell the boot instead

Curtis has to be the only male chef who cried during his closing line on the show when was eliminated

Showed strong weakness only in sushi, and sushi is a very specific area of the culinary arts. Shouldn't be on here.

94 Clemenza - Season 10

Shouldn't be on here

He definitely sabotages Justin in the finals. Christina was definitely deserving, but Justin also was. The strongest season of the show so far... In fact, 8, 9, and 10 are the strongest, followed by 5.

The main reason why Justin lost along side with Royce

Does any one else think he kinda looks like a Snorlax?
HAHA JK That's just mean, but HE'S STILL A BAD CHEF!

95 Barret - Season 11

This guy served raw chicken to Sous Chef James' 7-month pregnant wife. He should've been eliminated instead of Dan.

This guy outstayed his welcome.

He is quite possibly the most dangerous Hell's Kitchen contestant of all time.

Let me repraised that.He should have been eliminated with Dan

96 Amanda - Season 6

Very lazy because she cooked a signature dish that is WAY too easy French toast? Really? Come on now you can do better than French toast. And putting the salmon in the freezer didn't even make any sense and not knowing some simple math 3 times 3 is 6? Come now this is simple multiplication you should know already. This girl is just real ignorant.

In addition to sliced bread and tequila as signature dish, the put salmon in the freezer, said that 3 3's is 3, 3 times 3 is 6 and 12 3's is 9. One tequila, two tequila, three tequila... four

97 Jennifer - Season 13

Terrible attitude, mean, a frustrated and unprofessional amateur. One of the worst contestants to get the black jacket...

She's overly abrasive, refuses to trust anybody, and she's always acting hostile towards Roe.

Worst attitude ever to be in hell's kitchen

98 Melanie - Season 12

Shouldn't be on here.

Why is she on here?!

She deserved to be in the finale more than Scott

Far more arrogant than her talent warranted. Snotty, back-talking, and self-centered.

99 Nona - Season 8

What?! Why is she on here?

100 Mark - Season 15 V 1 Comment
