Hell’s Kitchen 2 contest winners revealed

We have a winner for the Hell’s Kitchen 2 contest. Before I reveal her name, and the names of the runners-up, I just wanted to thank FOX for the prizes, and more importantly, say thanks to every single person who entered. I grow fond of watching your entries come in day after day, and I’ll miss that time we shared. And seriously, thanks for reading reality blurred.

Ultimately, there were thousands of entries, and considering that some people entered every single day, the odds were still pretty good. But in the end, it was all up to the random number generator at random.org, which selected the winners for me. They are:
