Hell's Kitchen Diner's Confessional: I Didn't Go Hungry!

To be a Hell's Kitchen contestant, one must be hungry for fame, excellence and no small amount of drama. But to be a Hell's Kitchen diner, one must go hungry ... or at least that's the impression the editing on the reality cooking competition show has given. With all of host-mentor Chef Gordon Ramsay 's bellowing, the undercooked proteins and overdone egos apparent on the show, many a filmed dinner service has ended in tears or has been shut down well before all courses have been served. Imagine my relief (and satiation) that this was not necessarily the case when I recently had the privilege to dine at Hell's Kitchen itself. Check out what other preconceived notions I had and how they played out through dinner service: //

Hell's Kitchen Runner-Up Justin: Exclusive Interview

Last Monday on the Hell’s Kitchen finale, Chef Gordon Ramsay finally revealed the winner of season 10 and who would be taking the position as head chef at Gordon Ramsay Steak in Las Vegas. With a final dinner service they surely won’t soon forget, Justin and Christina duked it out, both putting forth a good fight until the last ticket had been served.  In the end, when the two stood behind those frosted doors waiting to hear their fates, it was Christina who emerged as the winner and Justin whose door stayed firmly shut. For all of Justin’s fans out there who were outraged by Justin’s runner-up status, you can take solace in the fact that Justin, himself, is content with the outcome. I had the opportunity to speak with Justin about his experience on Hell’s Kitchen and he maintains that although it was difficult to come so close to victory, he feels as though this path is the one that is meant to be. With plenty of congratulatory wishes to Christina for her win, Justin explained that, in the end, he’s not so certain that Gordon Ramsay Steak is the place for him and that he dreams of opening his own restaurant where he can develop a menu that includes the complex flavors he enjoys so much. When it came to the Hell’s Kitchen competition, Justin went into it blind, having never watched the show previously. Many of the other contestants knew what to expect, but according to Justin, he didn’t know "what the hell they were talking about." Pretty impressive considering he came out on top on more than one occasion, most notably when it came to Chef Ramsay’s famous palette test to which Justin pulled off a perfect score, a feat not accomplished by any other chef in all ten seasons. Throughout the season, Justin played it straight, not pulling any punches when it came to getting things done in the kitchen. He carried this attitude all the way through the final Hell’s Kitchen dinner service in which he refused to send out food that was not up to par. When asked what happened during that final dinner service when his team couldn’t seem to meet his standards, he explained simply that "it was a really hard menu" and that he feels his team gave all they could, but that from the start he had planned to play "balls to the wall" and didn’t want to simplify his dishes or let less than stellar food slip by just to win, which if that meant losing, at least he felt he would "lose with pride." The integrity that Justin demonstrated throughout this season of Hell’s Kitchen , along with his tremendous talent is what has his fans anxiously awaiting his next move.  With big plans to open his own restaurant and run his own "brigade," Justin assures me that his fans will be the first to know when he makes his move.  Justin’s appreciation for his fans is obvious as he reveals that reading the encouraging comments from everyone over last few days have left him "so happy and so humble."  With a great deal of thanks to his fans, Justin assured me that we have not seen the last of him, a fact that I’m certain will make many people very happy. //

Hell's Kitchen Season 10 Winner: Exclusive Interview

Last night on Hell’s Kitchen , audiences watched as finalists Justin and Christina battled it out in a fight to the finish at their final dinner service.  With their fate somewhat in the hands of their teams, which were composed of eliminated Hell’s Kitchen contestants, it seemed like it could be anybody’s game. In the end, however, passion won out over palette, with the big win going to Christina. I had the opportunity to speak with Christina about her Hell’s Kitchen experience and how she feels about her new role as head chef at Gordon Ramsay Steak and one thing is for certain; her passion certainly does shine through. The chef, whom the people on the Hell’s Kitchen set called "The Senator" due to her fair attitude and refusal not to talk badly about the other contestants, shared that the magnitude of it all has not quite sunk in yet, but she is very excited to get started on her new adventure.
