Elise Wims was a contestant on Season 9 and Season 17 of Hell's Kitchen. On season 9, she ranked in 3rd place, and on season 17, she ranked in 7th place.

Personality Edit

Elise was the main antagonist of both her seasons. Her arrogance, running feuds with Carrie and Jennifer, abrasive attitude, throwing people under the bus, slacking off during punishments, and being the backstabbing queen, led her to be one of the most hated chefs in the show's history. On season 17, she did not change at all, and had a running feud with Michelle.
