And the Hell's Kitchen winner is...
Chef Gordon Ramsay claimed that this year's decision was not an easy one. Before announcing the winner, by having the finalists open a door (if your door opens, you win) that leads to the restaurant where family members and past participants await, he told Bonnie that she was the contestant who surprised him the most and told Rock that he was rock-solid.
Even if Bonnie did improve a lot throughout the season, Rock was named the winner of this season's Hell's Kitchen. Rock has been performing well from the start and was probably the most consistent contestant. He has shown his leadership qualities as soon as the premiere episode and often was the leader of the men's team (the contestants were split by gender for most of the competition).
Rock will now become the head chef of the fine-dining restaurant at the Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa and Casino in Las Vegas. His salary will be $250,000 per year.
Hell's Kitchen will return for a fourth season in 2008. In the meantime, Gordon Ramsay's fans can watch him this fall in Kitchen Nightmares.
