The final two chefs battled it out in the kitchen on Hell’s Kitchen on Thursday night, filmed in Las Vegas during the pandemic. Mary Lou Davis and Kori Sutton squared off in a finale with a grand prize that includes the job of head chef position at Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen in Lake Tahoe at Harvey’s Hotel & Casino and $250,000.
Sutton, who hails from Newport Beach, California, and previously appeared on Top Chef Mexico and Cutthroat Kitchen, impressed Ramsay enough to win the title on the 19th season of the show.
“Chef Kori is everything I could want in a head chef. She’s decisive, level-headed, and most importantly passionate. From the moment she stepped into Hell’s Kitchen she was instinctual and a natural-born leader,” Ramsay told cameras after Sutton won. “She’ll be a great asset to Hell’s Kitchen in Lake Tahoe.”
