Top 10 Worst Hell's Kitchen Contestants


The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

82 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

83 Aaron - Season 13

"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.

84 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

85 Aziza - Season 16

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

86 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?

87 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.

88 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...

89 Don - Season 10

He did absolutely nothing on the first night

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

90 Monterray - Season 9

He was an ass! It was great to see Sous Chef Scott own him!

He's like Rock without everything that made Rock great

Attempted to be Rock but failed

91 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

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 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!

94 Amanda - Season 6

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

95 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

96 Mark - Season 15 V 1 Comment
97 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

Nominated every time the red team lost

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

98 Jared - Season 15

This dude is always talking himself up, but continuously fails to deliver. He's a trainwreck on meat, consistently serving up raw chicken and raw and overcooked steaks. Then he goes on about how he's a master at the fish station, only to continuously serve raw scallops and fish. It becomes utterly apparent that he can't cook.

He thinks he is the best but he knows nothing.

Has served up raw chicken several times

Best one in the season. Should be nowhere near the top.

99 Jessica - Season 16

She gives up too easily. Which was why Gia stayed over Jessica besides the ratings and drama. If you are gonna nominate yourself, be sure you're not the one going home.

100 Koop - Season 16

This guy has serious anger issues. I understand Paulie is arrogant and insufferable, but this guy is throwing chairs and swearing like a sailor every time his team loses.

Koop's reaction in the dorms in episode 9 was well understandable. The blue team kept screwing up. I don't think Paulie is much better on the line, but he's better cooking dishes as shown in challenges. - ClashingWizardWill92
