When we heard that Chef Ja'Nel Witt, despite having won Hell's Kitchen AND being offered a head chef job at one of Gordon Ramsay's Vegas restaurants, tested positive for cocaine… well, we were floored that someone would put so much potential in jeopardy like that!
Then we thought that maybe it was a real problem, a problem that might be there regardless of her talent. In that case, maybe she needs guidance and help!
"My door is always open. I hope she sorts out her personal issues."
..when asked for a statement about Ja'Nel's job opportunity disappearing.
It sounds like he still believes in her talent — and we do too! The culinary world might be missing out on some extraordinary things if they never give her another chance!
