Paul Niedermann was a contestant on Season 9 of Hell's Kitchen. He was the winner of that season and was awarded a head chef position at BLT Steak in New York City, with a salary of $250,000.

Personality Edit

Paul was a great chef, but could be considered cocky and annoying at some points. He won the competition because of his passion, his honesty and the fact that he always admitted his mistakes. The only time he got nominated for elimination, he gave one of the most convincing pleas in the history of the show. He had a short-lived running feud with teammate Brendan.
