Wendy Mendez was a contestant on Season 16 of Hell's Kitchen. She ranked in 8th place.
Season 16 Edit
- She is the third contestant, and first female contestant, to accomplish a perfect score of 4 out of 4 on the Blind Taste Test, after Justin (Season 10), and Milly (Season 14).
- She is the eighteenth contestant, and tenth female contestant, who switched teams without making it to the black jackets.
- (Post elimination): "I'm proud of myself for making it this far. I struggled. I tried. I should have, you know, maybe portrayed more confidence from the beginning like everybody else, but I hate those chefs who think that they are the best shit since sliced bread and suck. A wise man thinks he's a fool and a fool thinks he knows everything, and that house is full of fools."
