What happened to Nona in the relay challenge?
The red team lost the challenge 1-2, and they were punished by participating in Delivery Day, and cleaning both kitchens. During the punishment, she complained that Delivery Day was the one punishment she did not want to do, and stated that the blue team should have lost the challenge.
During the punishment, she got into an argument with Sabrina after she accused her of not helping much. When both of them were forced to take deliveries of rice, she was slow-moving and out of breath, much to Sabrina’s annoyance. During dinner service, Nona was on the fish station.
Back in the dorms, Nona was still emotional over seeing her family. Before the Fusion Challenge, Ramsay told the chefs that after the next service, two of them would be eliminated. She got Greece and Italy, and decided to even her countries’ flavors. She was the second person to compete and presented her rustic seafood rago with Greek pasta, roasted tomatoes, balsamic vinaigrette, maraschino cherries, and lemon chello. While the mussels and pasta were praised for their execution, the judges felt that it was two dishes instead of one. She lost the challenge to Jillian, and was punished by packing all the unneeded furniture in the dorms, and prepping the kitchen for the next service. During the punishment, she got annoyed at Russell’s attempt to carry two mattresses at once, and said that he was acting overly cocky and like a prick.
During the Amuse Bouche Challenge, Nona was the fourth person to present her dish, and made shrimp and grits. Not only was the presentation criticized for looking a mess, Suzanne Tracht said that the taste reminded her of body odor. So, she received 34 points for presentation, and 33 points for taste, for a total of 67 points. She lost the challenge to Russell, and was punished by cleaning the dorms and prepping the kitchen for the next service. During the punishment, she said that she hated cleaning, and that she was always asking her husband do it back home.
During dinner service, Nona was on the fish station. She managed to get her first order of scallops accepted, which got the red team off to a strong start. When the team began their entrées, her halibut was cooked perfectly, but Ramsay was forced to trash it due to Emily’s undercooked steak.
She picked Russell to go on the reward with her, but revealed that while she wanted to take Jillian with her, she picked Russell as she did not want to be on his bad side. During the reward, she was amused when Russell was flirting with one of the masseuses. During dinner service, Nona was on the appetizer station.
She made a chicken salad and bacon sandwich on a croissant with sweet potato chips, though struggled to understand what her equipment was. While serving her dishes to customers, she used her southern hospitality. She lost the challenge to Gail as she was 2% behind her, and was punished by cleaning the front entrance of Hell’s Kitchen for the next service, and washing the food trucks used for the challenge.
Who is Nona Johnson?
Michael Tullberg/Getty Images. Nona Sivley, who now goes by the name Nona Johnson, has made a splash in the culinary industry by opening her own company called Sizzling Peach with her wife.

Where did Sivley work?
Working as the head chef at LA Market in Los Angeles for three years after her season eight win, Sivley then went on to work at Pork & Beans in Las Vegas, though it appears she was abruptly fired under controversial circumstances. The restaurant is seemingly now be closed.
She resides in Toronto, Ontario in Canada with her husband and young son.
8 Dave Levey – Season 6. Arguably one of the most fascinating wins, Levey fractured his wrist early in the competition but decided to continue on. Nicknamed by Chef Ramsay the “one-armed bandit,” he made dish after dish seamlessly while one arm was in a sling.
The most recent winner, Tribble appears to still be working as head chef at Ramsay’s new Hell’s Kitchen restaurant at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, where the upcoming 18 th season is rumored to be set to film.
She returned to Hell’s Kitchen twice , once in season 11 as part of a group of returning winners that competed against the final five, and a second time in season 16 as a guest, where she also provided the female contestants with advice about how to work under the pressure of the demanding show.
