Joseph Just a Ploy on ‘Hell’s Kitchen’?

By now, a lot of people are familiar with Joseph “I’m nobody’s bitch” Tinnelly. The former US Marine was the stuff of online forums after he showed off his fiery temper on the season premiere of Hell’s Kitchen last week.

As the New York sous chef is the first to show chef Gordon Ramsay this kind of attitude, some float the idea that maybe Joseph is just a ploy to pump up ratings for Hell’s Kitchen. Ploy or not, it worked, with some critics already predicting that this just might prove to be the Fox reality show’s most watched season to date.

A quick lookup for his identity will reveal that Joseph Tinnelly is at the very least a real person. The son of Mary and Edward Tinnelly, he graduated from the US Marine Corps boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina. He graduated from Massapequa High School in 1999 and was set to specialize in culinary arts. So while it does not prove that Joseph wasn’t planted on Hell’s Kitchen to spur interest, his background is very much genuine.

Regardless of Joseph’s intentions, however, Los Angeles Times commented that the “most shocking” part of the whole Joseph debacle was the fact that a member of the US military would have such a harsh reaction to authority. He “so poorly represent the armed forces,” the article said.
