Jennifer Salhoff was a contestant on Season 13 of Hell's Kitchen. She ranked in 4th place.
Jennifer spent the majority of that season complaining about others, and being highly critical of their mistakes. She had a tendency to moan if things were not going her way, and often came across as a very cold person to interact with, not really getting along with any other contestants. Whilst a strong chef, she never showed good enough leadership qualities.
Season 13 Edit
While the chefs were on their way to Hell's Kitchen, Jennifer said that her competitors were going to need all the luck in the world to beat her, and called herself a force of nature. Then, the bus pulled over to Pacific’s Cinerama Theatre as Ramsay wanted to show them an inspirational video before going there. After, Ramsay revealed that the winner of that season would become the Head Chef at Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill at Caesar's Palace, in Atlantic City, and told the chefs to cook their signature dish.
During the Signature Dish Challenge, Jennifer was the sixth person from the red team to compete and went up against steve. She made a duck dish, but Ramsay deemed it overcooked and received only two points. Despite that, the red team won the challenge 24-23 and was rewarded with dinner at the Hotel Bel-Air cooked by Wolfgang Puck. When the red team came back from their reward, she mockingly asked the men for a pillow fluffer.
During dinner service, Jennifer was on the fish station with Janai. She was not seen much, but the red team won dinner service.
During the Geoduck Challenge, Jennifer was not seen participating in the first part, but during the second part, she was paired up with Katie. They were seen only getting one attempt accepted, but she refused to let the red team's winning streak end. The red team eventually won the challenge 15-14 and they were rewarded with a day on an 80-foot luxury yacht with Ramsay. During the reward, she was in awe of Ramsay's accent.
During dinner service, Jennifer was on the meat station with La Tasha. After seeing Janai's overcooked risotto, she was not happy that she created baby food, and compared it to shit coming out from a blender. Later, she refused to babysit Denine and Janai, but was hoping for a miracle. When entrées began, she got her Wellingtons accepted. After the red team got kicked out of the kitchen, she was frustrated that they fell apart, but Janai felt that she was playing the blame game. Both teams were named joint-losers and Ramsay asked both teams to nominate two people for elimination.
She was not nominated for elimination.
During dinner service, Jennifer was on the meat station. She was the third contestant to run the pass. During her run, she felt her teammates tried to sabotage her service, and failed to notice the intentional mistake from Sous Chef Andi.
At elimination, Jennifer was the first contestant eliminated by Ramsay. She did not receive the coat hanging and burning picture sequence, nor a retrospective montage of her run during her exit interview.
- She is the third black jacket contestant who did not receive a retrospective montage of her run after her elimination, following Josh from Season 3, and Santos also from Season 13.
