|Name: Justin Antiorio|
Occupation: Sous Chef
Hometown: Lyndhurst, NJ
Twitter: @ChefJustinHK Justin’s Highlight: “HELL’S KITCHEN has been an unbelievable experience for me and the highlight has been learning so much about myself as a person and really seeing how much patience I have. Being one of the final two contestants is by far one of my greatest accomplishments and with not many chefs making it this far in ten seasons, it is truly an honor and a privilege.”
Name: Christina Wilson
Occupation: Chef de Cuisine
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Twitter: @ChefChristinaW Christina’s Highlight: “I think the highlight for me came when Chef Ramsay announced me as the first contestant going through to the finals. Watching now, I can see in my face that I'm at my breaking point mentally and physically on the show. My emotions have just been jarred by seeing my family and I am running on a whole different kind of adrenaline right now. This moment was big for me because when I needed to dig deeper, I was able to. Now I just need one more big push and I'll be Vegas-bound!”
