The reward for the chef who survives this nightmare is a chance to serve as executive chef of a high-class (and we mean ''high''-class -- think The Savoy) restaurant. Much of the show's appeal (even among those who hate Reality Shows) comes from the fact that it features the same kinds of people that plague every [[RealityTV reality series]]... but in a shocking diversion from the genre, they're ''punished'' for being stupid attention-starved assholes and ''rewarded'' for showing competence, professionalism, and respect to both to each other and especially Chef Ramsay.

*** Season 3: The elimination of Josh which marked the first time Chef Ramsay eliminated someone ''in the middle of service'' and Ramsay sending Julia off to culinary school, as well as the first time two contestants would be eliminated in the same episode. The first (and so far, the only) time that the final service featured teams with the chefs who were originally on those teams before being eliminated, as Bonnie picked all the returning women and Rock picked all the returning men. Notably, Josh is the only black jacket chef to have been eliminated mid-service.

*** Season 3: The elimination of Josh which marked the first time Chef Ramsay eliminated someone ''in the middle of service'' and Ramsay sending Julia off to culinary school, as well as the first time two contestants would be eliminated in the same episode. The first time Ramsay did not select a Best Of The Worst after a service outside of the final three, instead asking for a team consensus on nominations, which nowadays is how they are usually decided. The first (and so far, the only) time that the final service featured teams with the chefs who were originally on those teams before being eliminated, as Bonnie picked all the returning women and Rock picked all the returning men. Notably, Josh is the only black jacket chef to have been eliminated mid-service.

** Russell from season 8 was TheBully and such a horrible man he threatened to end the careers of those he worked with because he didn't win. The reason he didn't win was because he was so nasty to other chefs hat it made them do the job poorly.

** EldritchAbomination Benjamin in Season 7, after winning the first individual challenge of the competition. His reward? A haircut, new clothes, and a photo shoot. The difference it made was [[BeautifulAllAlong astonishing.]]

** Season 16's blue team. They didn't do too bad with challenge wins, but they've been kicked out of dinner service a record 7 times, only outright winning against the red team twice.



** In fact, half of the winners got mediocre or negative reviews for their signature dishes. [[spoiler: Dave from Season 6, Christina from Season 4, and Heather from Season 2]] got mixed reviews ([[spoiler: Dave cooked the ostrich well but undercooked the brussels sprouts, Christina's dish had a good concept with bad execution, and Heather's empanadas were thick and hard to digest, but was the best dish offered by that point, while Michael from Season 1, Rock from Season 3, Danny from Season 5, Holli from Season 7, and Nona from Season 8 got terrible reviews on their dishes.]]) [[spoiler: Paul from Season 9, Christina from Season 10, Ja'Nel from Season 11, and Meghan from Season 14]] are the only winners who got positive reviews for their signature dishes.

Added DiffLines:

** Season 16 has Ryan, who went by her last name to avoid having two Kimberlys on the same team.

** [[spoiler: Michael from Season 1, Heather from Season 2, Dave from Season 6, Holli from Season 7, Christina from Season 10, La Tasha from Season 13, and Meaghan from Season 14]] were never nominated once and were rarely criticized during dinner service.

** Scott from Season 12 would also do this to Jessica for failing on the garnish station constantly.
** Bryant from Season 13 did it as well to Frank, because of his dreadful performance overall.



** Season 16 had Johnny and Matt. Johnny because he would frequently bully the red team (something he fully admitted to enjoy) and Matt due to his refusal to take criticism.

** JP explaining how to set the tables. Most of the contestants look like they're about to start nodding off it takes so long. Of course, what the contestants didn't know through this explanation is they had to set the tables for the restaurant and do it perfectly.

Added DiffLines:

** He would do it to Frank and Sterling as well in Season 13.


Added DiffLines:

** Frank from Season 15 rarely took responsibility for his actions, saying they weren't his problem if someone else held his cooking.

** Comes up again in Episode 13's ethnic dish challenge, where Zach calls bok choy [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign "bok chewy".]] Many times. This even extended to his description of the dish ''in front of the chef who was tasting it.'' Needless to say, [[CurbStompBattle the Red team won...]][[HumiliationConga again.]]

** The lack of cooperation among chefs in the same team combined with individual incompetence can sometimes cause a humiliation conga of its own for dinner services. It was the case for [[spoiler: Season 6 and Season 15's Red Teams, who managed to rack up 6 consecutive dinner service losses]]
