Hell’s Kitchen: Season 7
Season 7 of the American competitive reality television series Hell’s Kitchen aired on the Fox Network from June 1, 2010 to August 10, 2010. The winner, Holli Ugalde, was promised the head chef position at Chef Ramsay’s newly renovated restaurant at the Savoy Hotel in London. Filming had concluded on February 2009, 16 months prior to seventh season premiere, when the hotel reopened in 2010; however, Ugalde was not given the job. Ramsay stated that the American Ugalde could not work in London due to visa problems, but Ugalde called that explanation an excuse, saying, “I don’t know if they even applied for my visa.”
Sous chef Scott Leibfried returned for the Blue Team, and newcomer Andi Van Willigan from Santa Monica, California became the sous chef for the Red Team.
