Hell's Kitchen Winners


  1. I couldn't be happier for a contestant than I was for Rock, he certainly earned his way to Hell's Kitchen and to the win! I also have to give a Big RESPECT shout out to Bonnie - what a sport! The genuine happiness she had for her competitor's win was amazing. Both wonderful people, I hope they are both doing great!

  2. Really Rock was the only one even close to being competent enough to run a restaurant. Do you really think someone can go from being a nanny to executive chef at a restaurant?

  3. Amazing season, still watch it from time to time. The final trio with Julia where she was eliminated...that was so hard to watch, felt terrible for her. However, Rock was genuinely awesome from start to finish, and put on a finale performance to win it all. Thanks for posting!
