HOT FROM FOX...

ARIEL MALONE, A COUNTRY CLUB CHEF FROM HACKENSACK, NJ, NAMED "HELL'S KITCHEN" SEASON 15 WINNER

The 15th season of HELL'S KITCHEN came to an exciting end as host and Head Chef Gordon Ramsay announced Ariel Malone the winner during tonight's season finale on FOX. Malone, 27, a country club chef from Hackensack, NJ, earned herself a Head Chef position at BLT Steak at Bally's Las Vegas, a total prize value of $250,000.

"I'm living proof that hard work and believing in yourself can make dreams come true" said Malone. "Winning HELL'S KITCHEN is an unbelievable honor and I'm happy that I get to make a living doing what I love. With this opportunity, I'm excited to create a better life for my present and future family."

"Throughout the competition, Ariel demonstrated that she was both a leader and a true powerhouse in the kitchen," said Ramsay. "She exemplified impressive culinary skills, and proved to be creative, ambitious and quick on her feet no matter what was thrown her way. I am thrilled to see her joining the team at BLT Steak at Bally's Las Vegas."

In one of the most dramatic seasons to date, Malone proved to be a consistent leader during dinner services. Her strong attention to detail and determined spirit earned her a spot in the finale, during which she went head-to-head with Kristin Barone, a line cook from Chicago. For the final challenge, both skillful contestants created their own menus, and lead a team of their past competitors through the most important dinner service of their lives.
