Ji from Hells Kitchen

33 year old Private caterer Ji was the second contestant eliminated from Hell’s Kitchen Season 5.

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: What got you interested in being on Hell’s Kitchen?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: I have watched it in the past and I became a fan during season one. I applied because I was getting bored and I wanted to further my culinary expertise. My brother sent me a link to the application and I then I went to the open casting call.

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: Was it more Hellish than you expected?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: It was so surreal, it was so bizarre to walk into the dining room for the first time. When I watched the show I would say I could do that easily but when you’re in the real live Hells Kitchen arena you get so much pressure it’s amazing. Chef yelled at everyone and you didn’t know what to say to him or how to react.

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: What was the biggest surprise in taking part?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: It was a huge surprise, I just felt it was a dream.

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: Are you sure you weren’t in a nightmare?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: No, I was very happy to be there.

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: Colleen really got it from Chef Ramsey, do you think it went too far?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: I felt the same way as Chef Ramsey, the dishes looked sloppy and the portions were huge. I was floored she charges $300.00 per person and I completely agree with Gordon.

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: What did you think about Lacey?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: I honestly thought she was wasted space and I didn’t know how she got on the show. I was laughing when she considered herself the pretty girl in kitchen.

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: What was the final prognosis on your injury?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: Sprained ankle.

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: Would you do it again or have you already filmed it again and we just don’t know?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: I would do it again and I don’t think the story of Ji was fully told.  

Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: Do you have a website you can share before you go?
A. Ji, Hells Kitchen 5: Yes, people can find me at http://www.chefji.com
