Sade Dancy was a contestant on Season 13 of Hell's Kitchen. She ranked in 3rd place.
A self described sassy woman, Sade had a fiery temper and was not afraid to argue with anyone, such as Denine who she had a short feud with. She also hated losing as she had to suffer through multiple punishments in both the red team and the blue team. Despite that, she did have a caring side as she eventually got along with Bryant and teared up when Sterling was eliminated.
Season 13 Edit
While the chefs were on their way to Hell's Kitchen, Sade immediately boasted that a woman was going to win that season, but Aaron quickly disagreed with that. 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, Sade was the second from the red tea to compete and went up against JP. She made a wild mushroom and pea risotto, but Ramsay criticized the dish for looking dreadful and having mushy rice while calling it sad. She received two points, but despite that, the red team won the challenge 24-23 and was pumped about winning the first challenge. The red team was rewarded with dinner at the Hotel Bel-Air cooked by Wolfgang Puck.
During dinner service, Sade was on the dessert station. She was not seen much that night, except when she found it funny how Janai struggled on a simple math question, and the red team won dinner service.
During the Geoduck Challenge, Sade was not seen participating in the first part, but during the second part, she was paired up with La Tasha. They were seen only having one attempt accepted. 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 dinner service, Sade was on the garnish station. She was not seen much, except when she asked Janai why she was not giving out accurate times. Both teams were named joint-losers and Ramsay asked both teams to nominate two people for elimination.
She was not nominated for elimination.
