Fran Klier was a contestant on Season 7 of Hell's Kitchen. She ranked in 8th place.

Personality Edit

Fran was combative despite lacking abilities to work in a brigade. She managed to improve during her stay in Hell's Kitchen, but was still considered as one of the weakest links in the red team.

Season 7 Edit

Episode 1Edit

During the Signature Dish Challenge, Fran was the sixth person from the red team to have her dish judged by Ramsay, and went up against Jason. It was unknown what she made, but Ramsay deemed her dish too bland, and she lost the round to Jason. The red team eventually lost the challenge 3-4, and they were punished by cooking breakfast in bed for the blue team the next morning.

During dinner service, Fran was on the appetizer station with Holli. She screwed up potatoes three times, and accidentally mixed crab with lobster, leading her to be kicked out of the kitchen, along with Jamie and Maria. She tried to convince Ramsay that she would not leave her team, but was warned that he would physically throw her out of the kitchen if she would not leave. Back in the dorms, she admitted she had never been kicked out of the kitchen in 30 years of cooking, and said it was a big fucking deal. The red team lost the service, and they were asked to nominate two people.

Fran was the red team's second nominee for elimination, with Stacey being the first. She survived elimination.

Episode 2Edit

The red team lost the Egg Relay Challenge 10-11, and they were punished by taking a tuna delivery and prepping it ahead of the next service.

Episode 3Edit

The red team won the Marching Band & Cheerleaders Lunch Service Challenge, and were rewarded with a day at the beach and a game of soccer against Ramsay and his family.

Episode 4Edit

The red team lost the Dice Challenge, and their punishment was too clean the entryway and prep both kitchens for that night's dinner service.

Episode 5Edit

Her team lost the Pork Dish Challenge 1-2, and was forced to go to the pen and give the pigs a bath.

Episode 6Edit

During the Mother Sauces Challenge, Fran managed to score a point for her team. However, her team lost after a tiebreaker at 2. Their punishment was to clean and prep both kitchens for the next dinner service.

Episode 7Edit

The red team won the 50th Wedding Anniversary Planning Challenge 2-1, and were awarded a lunch to a 1950's style diner. There was also a hula-hoop contest, but Fran lost it to Siobhan.

Episode 8Edit

During the Gourmet Sandwich Challenge, Fran served a sandwich with soggy bread. The red team lost the challenge after a tiebreaker at 3. The punishment was to shuck peanuts and grind them into a homemade peanut butter.

Episode 9Edit

During the Blind Taste Test, Fran scored no point for the red team, who lost 3-4. They had to take part of Delivery Day.

After dinner service, both teams were declared losers, and were told to nominate one member each for elimination.

She was the red team's nominee, and joined Autumn from the blue team. She was eliminated for getting as far as she could go. Before she left, Ramsay praised her determination.

Ramsay's comment: "Fran wanted her team to communicate, but it seems the only thing her team agreed on was wanting her gone."

Episode 15Edit

When she came back for the last dinner service of the season, Fran was Jay's last pick, after Benjamin and Jason. However, Jay eventually lost the finals to Holli.
