Richard Mancini - Mancini is an executive chef who has always been "intrigued by TV." He believes that even though he's older than most of the contestants, he can definitely pull his weight. Mancini says that, coming from Chicago, he has a little chip on his shoulder in general, competing with other cities to be the best in his field. And so, this competition should feel no different for him. He says he brings a little cockiness and a little swagger that will hopefully get him to the top on the show. This chef says, "May the best man win," and he believes he is, in fact, the best man.




She is slammin’ hot. A far cry from the usual swamp things they enlist on this show.
