“Hell’s Kitchen” season 18 ended on Feb. 8, 2019. Ariel Fox was chosen by Gordon Ramsay to be executive chef at the Hell’s Kitchen Restaurant at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The season’s 16 contestants were evenly divided between rookies and veterans of the show. With eight of the hopefuls returning for redemption, we wanted to know who had bested them before on the show.
That got us wondering whatever happened to the contestants who won the first 17 seasons of “Hell Kitchen.” We did some digging and discovered that some of them are still working for Ramsay while others are now running their own restaurants or catering companies.
