Season 10 of the American competitive reality television series Hell's Kitchen premiered on June 4, 2012 on Fox and concluded on September 10, 2012. Chef de Cuisine Christina Wilson won the season and received a head chef position at Gordon Ramsay Steak at the Paris Las Vegas in the Las Vegas suburb of Paradise, Nevada.


Gordon Ramsay returned as head chef, Scott Leibfried and Andi van Willigan returned as sous chefs and James Lukanik returned as the maître d'.

Production and development

This season saw an alteration to the show's format, with many episodes now being two-parters, depicting the team challenge and reward/punishment one night, followed by service and elimination the following night. This season is also the first season in Hell's Kitchen history in which all chefs were eliminated normally. In other words, no chef was eliminated either despite being on the winning team, without being nominated (with the exception of Dana and Barbie during the final selection), during dinner service, had to withdraw for medical reasons, or walked out on their own terms. This is also the first & only season where one challenge produced no winner and both teams faced punishment.

Opening sequence

The opening sequence of Season 10 began with the iconic "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign which morphed into "Welcome to Fabulous Hell's Kitchen". This is followed by a magic show-style opening featuring the chefs doing various stunts and tricks with Ramsay magically appearing at the end.


18 chefs competed in season 10. Full names per official site.

Contestant progress



Each episode consists of a challenge with a reward, a service and an elimination.


Christina appeared in the Season 11 finale when she was visited by the finalists at Gordon Ramsay Steak, where they had lunch together and she gave them tips for their final service. She also appeared in Season 12 in episode 8 during the red team's reward trip in Las Vegas. Christina also returned in Season 13 for the 200th dinner service black-tie affair as a diner with Rock Harper (Season 3), Jay Santos (Season 7), Elise Wims (Season 9) and her Sous Chef at Gordon Ramsay Steak Jon Scallion (Season 11). Christina appeared in the Season 14 finale when she was visited in Hell's Kitchen and going with finalist to the Las Vegas.

Dana returned in Season 12 to pick one of the contestant's dishes to appear in the Hell's Kitchen Calendar alongside Season 3 winner Rock Harper, and Season 9 winner Paul Niedermann. Christina later returned as the Red Team's interim sous chef in Season 15 to replaced Andi Van Willigan, but Andi would appear in one episode for that season, which is her marriage moment.

In March 2014, Christina became the executive chef at Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

In April 2015 during Vegas Uncork'd, Christina was promoted to US Top Executive of the Gordon Ramsay Group.

Christina appeared in Season 15 when she filled for red kitchen sous chef Andi van Willigan who got married at the time of filming.
