Hell’s Kitchen season 8 contestants have been announced! Now I don’t know where the casting people find some of these yahoos, but they never fail to disappoint. But before I begin the who, what, where, and whys of the new contestants, let me just mention this one issue that has always bugged me about the show. Almost every contestant smokes. I have nothing against smokers, but isn’t smoking supposed to kill your taste buds? You can correct me if I’m wrong, since I’ve never smoked. It just always seemed weird to me. The prize for the season 8 winner will be a head chef position at LA Market, which is located at JW Marriott Hotel Los Angeles. They will also be the spokesperson for Rosemount Estate Wines. I’m guessing the second position is only because they will be going no further than Los Angeles, which, to me, seems a huge disappointment compared to previous seasons.
