Top 10 Worst Hell's Kitchen Contestants


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Giovanni - Season 5

When Michael from season 14 put a sizzling pan under the fish station desk, immediately Giovanni's sizzling pan from the freezer came up to my mind and in this case, somebody (Robert) did get burn that stunt from Giovanni.

Shouldn't be on here

He reminds me of going to work and people walking in looking pissed off and then seeing another group of people walking in with their eyes all squinted up.

Reminds me of people walking into a building squinting their way into the building walking on a cane with their wrong glasses on.

102 Mark - Season 15 V 1 Comment
103 Dana - Season 10

Why is she on here?!

Kinda annoying.

Dana was a very sore losers and almost ruined Christina's chances of winning

I loved her but in black jackets she got annoyingg - Steam

104 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

Faked a cut just like Gia did in season 16

105 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.

106 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

107 Royce - Season 10

Considering he works with Ralph, the runner-up of season 1, you'd think Royce would follow in his footsteps and be one of the top contenders of season 10. Nope. Instead, he's arrogant, egotistical, and doesn't have the skills to back it all up.

Delusional, narcissistic. Talentless to boot, that man could burn water and then whinge that "it was the best dish ever! "

ROLLS ROYCE is a BIT like Russell. But not completely

Royce vs Ralph is night vs day.

108 Giacomo - Season 2

He made so many mistakes during his short stay in Hell's Kitchen. Also, he's a pizza maker yet he didn't know how to turn on an oven? Smh

"Before you can even attempt to run a restaurant, the first thing you've gotta do is make sure you know how to cook. Giacomo? He was lost beyond belief." - Chef Ramsay

"I'm sorry chef I didn't mean to lie". Really? That was the stupidest thing I heard from him. I mean like I don't know what to say, all that is, is that it's plain crap coming out of someone's mouth!

"Dude, you don't have the ' gas on - STUPID! " From Chef Scott. What a donkey.

109 Craig - Season 4

This guy sucks. He was the sole catalyst for TWO challenge losses for the men's team with six out of eight of his cut chicken portions being deemed unacceptable and constantly stalling on the pasta. He is also not a team player as he is usually in a bad-tempered mood and doesn't communicate with his team during dinner service and gets pissed off when he finally gives a time. One terrible chef with an abysmal attitude.

Rudely replied to Chef Ramsay & his team mates when they were asking him for a time on spaghetti in his final service he was there.

Started off bad with his stupid chef's hat in the signature dish and than was downhill from there. Only Jason might have been worst than Craig in that season as far as cooking and as for attitude, well was part of the long list of that season's chef with bad attitude (Jenn, Matt, Rosann, etc. )

100% annoying oh wait I just remembered Craig doesn't know percentages. LOL! - spodermanfan1000

110 Wil - Season 5

One of the most useless contestants on the show.

Almost every single person on the blue team had to help this guy on garnish. That's really bad. Plus to nominate yourself for elimination so early in the game? Smh

Wil didn't have the Will to win

111 Jimmy - Season 1

I'd like to say that, even though Jimmy probably should not have made the black jackets, he still had some talent. His performance was consistently mediocre, which saved him countless times because other contestants were either very inconsistent or outright terrible, making Jimmy look better. In either case, he was a hard worker and a nice guy. He got my respect more than some other chefs that season.

Just like Josh (Season 3), Elise (Season 9), Robyn (Season 10), Jen & Matt (Season 4), how did this guy get a black jacket?

This guy was lucky he got a black jacket because he was one of the season's worst contestants cooking wise

He really deserved having that dish tossed back at him by Chef Ramsay. Chef Ramsay described it as dog's dinner.

112 Tony - Season 6

Half man, half donkey...

A rather annoying contestant. I feel like he was trying way too hard to be funny.

Tony tried to be funny, but it was cooking that was the joke.

Chef Ramsay: What did I say Tony?
Tony: Capellini, one scallop, one uh, blossom squash bottom squash

113 Ralph - Season 12

He screws up but never admits his mistake

Needs to own up to his mistakes, but far from being the worst of the season, let alone the show.

He's like the Season 4 Ben minus the bullying

114 Stacey - Season 7

One of the absolute WORST contestants to enter Hell's Kitchen. In an interview with her, she said she signed up for fun. She didn't care about the food, she went just for fun. Also her performance in her only dinner service in Hell's Kitchen was horrible. I was glad she was the first kicked out.

"It's a good thing Stacey's a private chef, her food wasn't good enough for the public." - Gordon Ramsay

And to think Ramsay thought Jim had no passion

She had a bizarre attitude when saying "I'm not sure how long it's gonna take

115 Patrick - Season 10

People are saying that Patrick was a promising competitor. I disagree. Patrick's leadership was piss poor, he got kicked out in episode 5 for poor communication, in episode 8 he couldn't cook lobster, and then in episode 9 he messed up repeating back an order and then served raw filet. While it was kinda surprising to see him get eliminated over Robyn, Tiffany, and Royce, I think he got eliminated at the right time.

A promising competitor who fell far beneath the pressure of the kitchen

Shouldn't be on here

Shouldn't be here and even if he was bad,he still shouldn't be here because this is the list for worst contestants not bad contestants.He was also the second pick for Christina but Dana was bad on the last service

116 Chris - Season 12

My condolences to all the pizzas he cremated.

To be fair Scott was on his station as well

117 Gabriel - Season 12

Made it as far in the competition as he did because of pure luck and Gordon's pity. It's not hard to see that the guy was completely clueless about everything going on in the kitchen.

Most inconsistent chef in Hell's Kitchen

He was sent home during service

This guy just can't cook at all!

118 Roshni - Season 10

Good chef, too bad every one on the blue team treated her like crap. (Royce not as much)

She deserved way more time she faught to stay she was just abandoned

Nice person, but a bad chef.

She should have left earlier

119 Chris - Season 10

He pretty much took himself out of the competition when he told Chef Ramsay that he was frazzled so early in the game.

He's actually a bit sexist & sucks, even as a cook

120 Carol - Season 5

Carol tried to sabotage Andrea and Chef Ramsay saw it and eliminated her even though she was on the winning team!

She and Andrea should switch places on this list.

She was rude & always at war with Andrea as well as trying to get rid of her.

Should be stayed at top 100! She's basically a backstabber like Jen of S4!
