Warning, spoilers ahead.
Michelle Tribble of Dallas lands the new head chef job at Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen, the TV personality’s fifth Las Vegas restaurant. She won season 17 of Hell’s Kitchen on Friday night, taking home the $250,000 salary and a shot at a job in the restaurant that sits in front of Caesars Palace.
At age 22, she first appeared on season 14 of Hell’s Kitchen, coming in second place. The Texas Woman’s University grad defeated two other all stars — Nick Peters Bond, also on season 14, and Benjamin Knack, who appeared on season seven of the show. For the past year, Tribble worked as a meat cutter at Whole Foods in New York City.
Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen restaurant opened in January with a red and blue side to the kitchen, along with pitchforks decorating the lights and chairs. During the grand opening last weekend, Ramsay said that more than 25,000 reservations came in since the opening.
