Scott Commings, the winner of season 12 of Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen, gets ready to head to Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace, where he won a $250,000 prize as head chef. The former executive chef from Woodstock, Ill., beat out 19 other contestants on the show, which aired back in July.
The pub also plans to hold weekly viewing parties for Hell's Kitchen season 13 starting tonight at 8 p.m.
When Ramsay revealed the winner back in July, he said, "Scott won tonight because he has all the qualities I'm looking for in a head chef. He is passionate, determined and a true leader," Ramsay says. "He's an artist plating food and has a phenomenal palate. There's no doubt in my mind that he's got a great career ahead of him." Commings' risks on the show earned him the title "The Biggest Comeback Chef in the history of Hell's Kitchen."
Season 10 winner Christina Wilson is now the executive chef at Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood Resort, while season 11 winner Ja'Nel Witt declined to take the job due to "personal matters."
