*** This folds in two ways. For the people with little experience, Ramsay hopes those types of chefs can develop and flourish in their skills since new people tend to have potential to become great at their trade (think Season 1's Elsie and Season 4's Christina). On the other side of the coin, Ramsay has high expectations on chefs that are either very experienced or specialize in certain kinds of meals or cooking skills because they are veteran chefs and are expected to be the role model of the team. This can be seen in season 10 when Kimmie was eliminated on the night everyone was cooking meals based on the southern United States because she screwed up at something she was supposed to be good at due to being raised in the south and cooking meals based on it.

* CoolOldGuy: Season 4's Petrozza, age 47. While not old per se (if we want to get technical, he's a Cool Middle-Aged Guy), he fits in to this trope because A) most contestants' ages range from mid-twenties to early thirties, and B) the second oldest contestant that season (Bobby) was ten years younger than him. But most importantly, he fits into the "Cool" portion of this trope because to this day, he's still regarded as one of the most likable contestants ever on the show.

* DarkHorseVictory: The winner in each season is often someone who spends half of the season flying under the radar, quietly doing their job and avoiding getting involved in any sort of drama. It's reached the point where GenreSavvy viewers find themselves seeking out contestants that spend most of the time OutOfFocus.

** For the first couple of seasons, a lot of customers confronted Chef Ramsay while he was working at the hot plate. After a while, they became GenreSavvy enough to know that that was JP's job. As a result, most seasons rarely see customers confronting Chef Ramsay ([[GenreBlind although it does still happen from time to time]]).

* GenreSavvy:
** When Gina gets nominated early into Season 9, she admits that she screwed up that evening's dinner service, and says she knows Chef doesn't want to hear excuses like "I'm a team player" or "I'm going to keep fighting", which is what nearly everyone says when they're up for nomination.
** Tommy has also used GenreSavvy to explain his motivations, {{lampshading}} it and explaining he knows Chef wants to hear that he messed up and he'll fix it.
** Tommy finished defending himself from one of Elise's false accusations in episode [[spoiler:11]] by asking Chef Ramsay to "[[CaughtOnTape play the replay]]". The resulting FlashbackCut did indeed [[ClearMyName clear his name]].



*** Elise was very close to turning this into GenreSavvy before announcing something to the effect of "I'm not here to make friends; we can work in the kitchen, but I'll shut you out once we're done." If she had followed through with this more than once every five services, it would have been a good effort. But most of them time she was never able to keep her hatred for Carrie hidden.
