Andrew Bonito was a contestant on Season 1 of Hell's Kitchen, and the main antagonist of that season. He was in the blue team. He ranked in 6th place.
Andrew had a very big ego, and a bigger mouth than any other contestant of that season. This lead him to be the most hated contestant by the other contestants and Chef Ramsay, and to be the most nominated contestant of the season, with 3 times on the chopping block. He is the first official douchebag of Hell's Kitchen.
Signature dish Edit
Andrew served what he called « Andrew's Absolute Penne » as his signature dish. Chef Ramsay called it « Absolute Dogshit » after spitting it out. He then asked Andrew to taste his dish, and when he acknowledged that there was too much salt in it, Chef Ramsay called him a « smartass » and told him his 10 years of experience were a waste.
Episode 1 Edit
During dinner service, Andrew was on the dessert station. After asking Chef Ramsay if the dessert he made was acceptable, Chef Ramsay went to his face and told him that if he has a question to come to the pass and ask it instead of waiting for Chef Ramsay to come down to him. After one of his team's tables went to the kitchen to speak with Chef Ramsay, and many tables left, Chef Ramsay shut down both kitchens. His team won the dinner service, but Chef Ramsay told them they didn't win, they're just safe.
