'Hell's Kitchen' finale: Ja'Nel Witt or Mary Poehnelt, who won the head chef position?
The final 2 was made up of Mary Poehnelt and Ja'Nel Witt, after Jon Scallion was cut in the first few minutes of the finale. After the final dinner service, which featured four appetizers, four entrees and two desserts from each team, Ramsay declared Ja'Nel Witt the winner.
Witt won the final challenge before the final kitchen service, earning the points for her cold appetizer, fish entree and beef entree, compared to Mary's hot appetizer and chicken entree wins. Witt also seemed to be in command more of her kitchen in the final service, plus Mary was hindered a bit by wild card Dan on her team.
