Fresh from being eliminated on the most recent episode of Hell's Kitchen, Seth Levine recently talked to BuddyTV in an exclusive interview where he hinted that he's very open to doing more television.  “I would love to do something with the Food Network,” he said.  Moreover, he explained that Hell's Kitchen viewers have absolutely no idea what it's like on the show, so people should cut him some slack regarding the whole scrambled eggs incident.

In another interview, Seth conceded that while “reality is reality,” he said some things that were still portrayed a little differently during his stint on Hell's Kitchen.  For one, as mentioned, doing something as mundane as making scrambled eggs is a far more daunting task when you do it in the kitchen of Gordon Ramsay, and at the back of your mind, you know the slightest misstep can earn the wrath of the infamous chef.

Just the same, “you're seeing me say what I said,” according to Levine, 27.  It is true that he is a private chef with little line experience.  “If I could do it over again I would have taken the time to grab some line experience and I would have worked with my teammates a little better.”

At the end of the day, said New York City native, he would “tweak a few things” if he could do it all over again.

“You're seeing 40 minutes of a 24 hour day and you won't see the best parts of our day on the show, since it is called Hell's Kitchen for a reason.”

After obtaining his degree from an Italian culinary school, Levine used to work in the floors of the New York Stock Exchange, among other glamorous jobs that make up his seven-year career.  If he's to be believed, he said he's responsible for the “most glamorous, lavish, extraordinary” events in the Hamptons.

Tune in for another episode of Hell's Kitchen with the always entertaining Chef Gordon Ramsay tonight, Thursday March 5, at 9 pm on FOX.
