Hell’s Kitchen: Dave Levey Exclusive Interview

May 27, 2010 02:34 PM by Lisa Princ


With a brand new season of Hell’s Kitchen on FOX premiering next week, we  had a chance to sit down and chat with season 6 winner, Dave Levey. Keep reading to find out what Dave thought of his experience with Gordon Ramsay and what he has been up to since the show!

Dave Levey won the hearts of America last season on Hell’s Kitchen on FOX as he worked with his arm in a cast. Dave took a few minutes today to sit down with RTVM and discuss his experience. Here is what Dave shared with us:

RTVM: Tell us about life after Hell’s Kitchen.

Dave Levey: Life after Hell’s Kitchen has been fantastic and busy. I was in Iraq for a few months while the Olympics were going on, so I had obligations in the states as well. I had to take on 7,000 reservations for the Olympics.

RTVM: Did you think going into the competition that you would come out the winner?

Dave Levey: I envisioned myself the winner. I strive to be the best at everything I do. With that said, I wasn’t even expecting to be on Hell’s Kitchen. I had a great experience and I think part of that is because I had a good relationship with Gordon Ramsay.

RTVM: What was it like working for Gordon Ramsay?

Dave Levey: It was great. Gordon Ramsay has impeccable standards and I think alot of contestants don’t realize that. You can’t slip anything past him without him noticing, his eyes are way too good for that.

RTVM: Do you have any advice for the future contestants of Hell’s Kitchen?

Dave Levey: Always keep your eyes open and your mouth shut or it is the beginning of the end for you. Also as I stated, do not try to slip anything past Gordon Ramsay. Hell’s Kitchen is crazy and unlike any other kitchen you have ever worked in.


RTVM: What was it like working with one good arm?

Dave Levey: It’s kind of funny because Gordon Ramsay nicknamed me the one armed bandit [chuckles]. Actually, when I was younger in Vermont, I broke my wrist and was in a cast for 7 months, which is why my arm is so weak. I was a Sous chef and I had to work through the pain with the cast, so this was not the first time for me.

RTVM: Any future plans you care to share?

Dave Levey: I am currently in Nashville helping my sister launch her county/rock album. I can’t wait to get back in the kitchen, it’s weird not being there.

RTVM: Anything you would like to share with your fans?

Dave Levey: My fanbase is amazing and I update them constantly. Hell’s Kitchen rocks, keep watching because you are in for a really crazy season this time around!

Thanks to Dave Levey for sitting down and sharing his thoughts with us. We look forward to hear what the future holds for you Dave, and congratulations again!

Be sure to tune in on Tuesday, June 1st at 9 pm EST for the season premiere of Hell’s Kitchen on FOX!

    Umm… Don’t they mean Araxi, or did he really serve food from Iraq? I don’t think so.
