Going into last night, I thought Christina was a better cook, but that Justin could run a kitchen a bit better.

Both of those gaps closed a bit for me watching the finale. I could see either one winning.

Which may be one of the reasons why she won - Kevin Hee "runs the kitchen" at Gordon Ramsay Steakhouse; who knows what Christina's job duties will be. "Head Chef" is just a title.

I doubt any of the winners have actually put a year in at whatever restaurant was featured that season.

I think at least one of the other two Vegas winners (Red Rock and Green Valley) did. Note that neither one of those is exactly near the Las Vegas Strip, unlike this year's prize, which is on it.

I know one - the one who got the job in London - wasn't allowed to work there at all; "the version I heard was," sometime between when they announced the prize and when they announced who the winner was, the British Parliament passed a law modifying the rules for foreigners getting a work visa needed to work in the UK, and one of the new rules is along the lines of, "Unless it's for some sort of entertainment purposes, you cannot enter the UK to work in a position that can be filled by a UK citizen."

I didn't have a major preference between these two but, in the end, I was surprised he didn't choose Justin. I felt like his cooking was every bit as good, although he was stuck with that albatross and that other, doofus, guy, and his leadership skills were better too. (except somebody just needed to tell him to stop saying 'We're dying here'.

Here is an article about Paul Niedermann who won last year and worked for a year at STK in New York.

From the little bit of research I did it's not surprising that the winners are "demoted" and aren't actually the executive chef at the restaurant. I don't think anyone who watches this show thinks they could actually run a top notch kitchen. Looks like a couple of them have quit before their year was up. The "real" executive chef is probably glad to get him/her out of his hair.

Where are they now?

Here is some info on the past winners. It was posted last year, but there are a couple of updates in the comments section.

America would fall if that was an enforced rule over here.

Ever notice that the show says the winner is the "Head Chef" at GR Steak in Paris Casino in Las Vegas.

My Guess is that they just created the title of "Head Chef", and then also have an "Executive Head Chef", sort of like Manager vs. Site Manager, etc.

I would think for 250K they can call them whatever they want. No matter what it is excellent exposure for them plus good experience, and an excellent salary for a year.

Met Christina in Vegas last week. She was very nice. Said she keeps in contact with Dana and that there perhaps they would go into business together as Dana was perhaps opening a new restaurant?
