Meet the Cast of 'Hell's Kitchen' Season 5
28-year-old Paula has a familiar tactic in getting the best out of people: yelling at them. This executive sous chef from Coconut Creek, Florida has over nine years' worth of experience in the field, including establishments in 3030 Ocean Restaurant and their very own family restaurant. This graduate of Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale describes himself as initially appearing sweet, cute, and quiet up until she opens her mouth and explodes at people. The Brazilian native says she's not a complete tyrant, just a perfectionist.
Paula is one of the 16 chefs competing to survive Gordon Ramsay's less than palatable words on the Fox reality show Hell's Kitchen.
