Recently we ran into Cheftestant, Brian Merel from Gordon Ramsay's television show Hell's Kitchen. While chatting by the pool, we urged him to relax a little and take a swim.
Like all reality TV, the season's results are under wraps and Brian wouldn't share the season 10 results. However, he did share with us something much more meaningful: who made his tiger-printed speedo as he "roared" miming aggressive claws. When you get close, (he's single, ladies), you'll find out that the speedo is made by Whittal & Shon out of New York and his aggressive claws are actually his (skillful) (for chopping vegetables) hands.
