Brian Merel was a contestant on Season 10 of Hell's Kitchen. He ranked in 7th place.
Brian was the funniest contestant of the entire season. He had a great personality, became friend with runner-up Justin, but his great sense of humour led to be his downfall. He was accused of not taking the competition seriously by Ramsay.
- He is the last contestant of that season to be eliminated before the black jackets were given.
- Some people think he would have deserved a black jacket more than Robyn.
- "Protein protein protein protein, duck duck duck duck..."
- "Tastes like fish, chef!"
