Michelle Tribble was a contestant on Season 14 and Season 17 of Hell's Kitchen. On season 14, she ranked in 3rd place, and on season 17, she was the winner and awarded a Head Chef position at the Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen restaurant at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, with a salary of $250,000.

Personality Edit

Michelle was young and inexperienced coming in the competition, which caused some chefs to look down on her. Despite that, she proved herself to be a very competent chef. On season 17, she had an unwanted running feud with Elise, but she remained one of the most consistent female chefs, which helped her to win the competition.
