[[folder: TheScrappy]]
* Oh, this shit will be ugly...
** Season 1: [[SmugSnake Andrew]] and [[RageQuit Jeff]].
** Season 2: [[BitchInSheepsClothing Sara]], full stop. Also, your mileage WILL vary, but depending on who you thought deserved to be in the finals, [[CreatorsPet Virginia]] or [[HairTriggerTemper Keith]].
** Season 3: The infamous "Hell's Bitches": [[BadassDecay Melissa]], [[{{Hypocrite}} Joanna]], and [[RedShirt Tiffany]]. As far as the men, [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Vinnie]] and [[TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket Josh]] easily take the cake.
** Season 4: [[DefrostingIceQueen Corey]] and [[LargeAndInCharge Bobby]] at first, but both became better [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap as the season went on]]. The same can NOT be said, however, for [[SassyBlackWoman Jen]], [[AlphaBitch Rosann]], [[ButtMonkey Ben]], [[DunceCap Craig]], [[StrawMisogynist Jason]], and, of course, [[TheEeyore Matt]].
** Season 5: [[JerkassWoobie Andrea]], [[TheMillstone Carol]], [[{{Wangst}} Lacey]], and [[HighHopesZeroTalent Seth]], and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Ben]] to some.
** Season 6: [[ButchLesbian Tennille]] and [[NotGoodWithPeople Suzanne]], mostly just for their voices/attitudes, as well as [[EpicFail Louie]], the shortest-lived Scrappy yet. But no one that season could possibly top former Marine [[TooDumbToLive Joseph]].
** Season 7: [[GratuitousFrench Benjamin]] (mostly around when he went to the red team), [[NoSocialSkills Autumn]] (though mostly just at the beginning), [[JewishMother Fran]], [[LethalChef Siobhan]], [[SmallNameBigEgo Scott]], [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant Andrew]], and [[MotorMouth Maria]].
** Season 8: [[BadBoss Russell]] (the only full-blown Scrappy to ever make the finals), [[ManipulativeBitch Sabrina]], and of course, [[FatIdiot Raj]].
** Season 9: [[EliminationHoudini Elise]], the all-time Scrappy queen, as well as her rival, [[DumbBlonde Carrie]]. Also [[BadLiar Brendan]], though mercifully, only briefly. When Elise returned in All-Stars, she was described by the others in whispers as "the most hated Hell's Kitchen contestant ever," not an in-apt statement.
** Season 10: [[ThirdPersonPerson Royce]], [[LazyBum Tiffany]], [[FatAndProud Kimmie]], and [[LipstickLesbian Robyn]]. [[DesignatedVillain Barbie]] started out as one with her early behavior, but later on, she kept her head down and became tolerable compared to the other aforementioned players; [[NoIndoorVoice Dana]], conversely, started out as one of the more likeable contestants, but towards the end of the season, many people got tired (and annoyed) by her constant yelling into the camera, and more than a few people were upset when [[spoiler: Barbie was eliminated before Dana at the end of episode 18 (although Dana also went home at the beginning of episode 19)]].
** Season 11: [[NeverMyFault Susan]], [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch Nedra]] and [[LeanAndMean Dan]]. [[ManChild Jeremy]] and especially [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Gina]] were brief ones. [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Zach]] started out okay, if a bit cocky, but at around the midway point his skills dropped and his ego got bigger, which made just about everyone hate him, the fans included, especially with his successfully sabotaging Ray and being very gleeful about it..
*** Dan got ''major'' Scrappy points at the final service, constantly acting like the jerkass he was and at the end, when it's revealed that Ja'Nel won the challenge, he goes to Mary (he was picked last for her team) and apologizes for his actions.
** Season 12: [[TheNapoleon Ralph]], [[TheLoad Mike]] and [[EmotionlessGirl Nicole]] (though at least the latter two were gone within four episodes). [[PoorCommunicationKills Sandra]] definitely started out as this, but [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap grew out of it]], calling out her teammates for nominating Rochelle solely because the latter wanted a family (while not really putting up a fight to stop herself from being nominated), and accepting her elimination in episode 12 with class, as she knew it was her own fault. She grew back to being a Scrappy with her behavior in the finale, by being lazy, attempting to sabotage the VIP table, and generally showing a poor attitude. [[InsufferableGenius Anton]] quickly rose to becoming one of the more disliked contestants due to his [[SmallNameBigEgo ego]], constant excuses and sexist attitude, to the extent he got into an argument and subsequently torn apart by sous chef Andi. His poor service that same night saw him eliminated, where he promptly declared he was still the winner anyway, and was looking forwards to the day when he would be opening a restaurant next to Ramsay's.
** Season 13: [[JerkAss JR]] and [[WhatAnIdiot JP]] (or, as Chef Ramsay calls them, [[FunWithAcronyms "Just Ridiculous" and "Just Pathetic"]]) were short-lived examples with the NeverMyFault trait sticking on them. Starting at around episode 8-9, [[HotBlooded Bryant]] has joined the ranks for his short fuse and ridiculous mannerisms when he gets mad and for being an all-around grump. He was RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap to some after he TookALevelInKindness in the last few episodes, though. Most fans also find [[EveryYearTheyFizzleOut Roe]] one for being a weak chef yet somehow sticking on and also having a pretty poor attitude. [[ThePollyanna Sterling]] is an InUniverse example, but [[EnsembleDarkhorse he's very popular among fans]] for being one of the funniest contestants ever to appear on this show.
** Season 14: [[GenreBlind Monique]] became this for many viewers after the ''first episode'', thanks to her mouthing off at Chef Ramsay when he called her out for using pre-made sauce in her signature dish (pre-made foods are a ''huge'' no-no in that challenge), along with constantly picking fights with her teammates. [[LackOfEmpathy Nick]] is this to some with his cold and condescending attitude.
*** Although they started out fairly popular, [[TookALevelInJerkass Josh, Milly, and T]] grew into this. Milly lost fans by sabotaging Randy (and ultimately getting him sent home) and T rubbed many the wrong way anytime she flipped out on [[TheWoobie Michelle]] (which, to clarify, was ''every time Michelle opened her mouth''). But Josh is the prime example from this season: in the beginning, he was one of the nicest, most entertaining, most easygoing guys on the blue team, but he lost about half of his fanbase in episode 10 when he looked down on Nick's background (though YMMV on how much was jerkass and how much was accurate), and lost almost all of the other half in the following episode when he was transferred to the red team where he simultaneously shot down in talent and shot up in ego (Anton, anyone?).
** [[{{Joisey}} Jackie]] in season 15 combines all the major elements, with subpar-to-mediocre skills in the kitchen, [[JerkAss a]] [[SmallNameBigEgo terrible]] [[NeverMyFault attitude]], [[ItsAllAboutMe crass behavior]], extremely confrontational and prone to temper tantrums, with even Sous Chef Christina calling her a cancer for the team at one point. She was also kept around farther than some less dramatic and roughly similar or better skilled contestants.
*** [[HeManWomanHater Frank]] from the same season is likewise heavily disliked by the fans due to his general bad attitude, his [[NeverMyFault constantly blaming others for his mistakes]] and his shameless [[StrawMisogynist dislike and sexist attitude towards women in general]]. His showing this same disdain towards female Marines in his last episode earned him the hatred of people commenting on the Baltimore Marines profile on Facebook and [[LaserGuidedKarma got them to investigate the incident]]. Frank is not the first Marine on ''Hell's Kitchen'' to become a Scrappy (looking at you, Joseph).
** Season 16: [[BlatantLies Gia]] and [[BarbarianLonghair Johnny]] are both heavily disliked by fans, the former for being [[DramaQueen overly whiny, bitchy and dramatic all the time]], and the latter for his [[HairTriggerTemper temper tantrums]] and his [[TheBully bullying behavior]] towards the women of the Red Team, openly admitting that he loves doing such things.
*** [[YourCheatingHeart Andrew]]. Any fans he might have had began to be completely lost when he started flirting with Heather constantly, despite allegedly being engaged to be married in a few months. His [[ManChild immature]] and [[TheBully bullying]] behavior towards contestants such as Devin and Kimberly doesn't help either.
*** [[CantTakeCriticism Matt]], due to being a jerk to anyone who criticized him. Him being a bigger SoreLoser than even Johnny and Koop did not help his case. What's interesting about Matt though is that he [[TookALevelInKindness adjusted his attitude]] after his [[RageQuit near quit]] in Episode 3, but in his last two episodes, [[{{Subverted}} degraded]] [[TookALevelInJerkass back to his arrogant self.]]
*** Although he started out fairly popular, [[ProfessionalButtKisser Paulie]] eventually became one due to his increasing [[SmugSnake arrogance]], [[NeverMyFault inability to take criticism]], and loud-mouthed {{Jerkass}} behavior, especially towards Ryan. His attitude when Devin and Wendy went home and declaration that he would [[ItsAllAboutMe only look him out for himself]] also reflected poorly on him, and many fans felt he should have gone instead of them.

* UnfortunateImplications: The first contestant to be eliminated in Season 17, [[spoiler:Ben,]] made one mistake all night and otherwise put in a solid performance, helping his team to victory. However, he was suffering from health problems and almost had a fall during service. While contestants have previously been eliminated for health reasons (Brett in Season 13, Steve in Season 14,) some even voluntarily (Ji in Season 5,) Ramsay usually treats them with a lot of respect. Ramsay called [[spoiler:Ben]] a 'big liability' and said it was obvious that he wouldn't be able to keep up. While not the most ShockingElimination on the show, to a lot of viewers it looked as though Ramsay essentially sent [[spoiler:Ben]] home for having diabetes.

** Josh froem Season 17 (All Stars) could not keep the same strength he had in Season 14, and his poor performances eventually lead to Ramsay eliminating him during service.

** Antonia's signature dish provoked another literal regurgitation from Ramsay in Season 8. Only this time he decided to share the pain by getting the other contestants to taste it. They didn't like it anymore than he did, and Vinny and Nona also came close to throwing up. It was so bad, Ramsay used it as the tiebreaker against the red team.
