Orland Park chef regrets return to 'Hell's Kitchen'

Season 18 of “Hell’s Kitchen” doesn’t premiere until Friday night, but Orland Park contestant Jen Gavin is already expressing regret for participating in the Fox network contest again.

“I just wasn’t in the right head space to be in the competition at the time,” Gavin told the Tribune by phone. “I’m definitely grateful to be back out there and given another opportunity to showcase my skills and my talents and all that good stuff, but the timing was pretty rough for me. And I think at this point in my career, I might even have taken a shuffle backwards.”

Gavin placed fourth on Season 4 of “Hell’s Kitchen.” Show host
