Christopher Spinosa On Next Level Chef
Fox has resumed airing Next Level Chef season 2, which debuted on February 12, 2023. The program is an epic, one-of-a-kind cooking competition with a distinctive venue for the contestants. The Next Level Chef set is located in a structure with more than three floors and a significantly different kitchen on each floor from the one before.
The chefs, under the direction of well-known chefs Gordon Ramsay, Nyesha Arrington, and Richard Blais, must work to produce culinary magic no matter the conditions in the kitchen, from the difficult bottom of the basement to the opulent top floor. The top home cooks, social media chefs, and professional chefs have joined the cast and been divided into three separate teams after being hand-selected by Ramsay and his co-mentors after scouring the nation.
The stakes are high for the competing cooks with a one-year mentoring and $250,000 on the line.
Christopher Spinosa is one of the 18 contestants this season. But, two episodes in, he is still safe. The contestant to be sent home in episode 2 of season 2 was Alex Morizio of Brooklyn, New York. The first contestant to be eliminated was Kamahlai Stewart which happened on premiere day.

Christopher Spinosa Family
Christopher Spinosa comes from a family of business people. His paternal grandparents are the founder of East/West Industries where some of his family members are still working. His grandparents Mary and Dominic Spinosa started the company in 1968.
They set East/West’s guiding tenet as “Saving aircrew lives is our first concern”. With a few engineers and family members, they started submitting proposals for simpler more reliable designs for ejection seats and life support components to ejection seats and aircraft OEMs. With this, East/West began manufacturing life support products and ejection seat parts.
His aunt Teresa Ferraro joined the company in 1983 and is currently serving as the president of the company. In 2018, she was honored with the Leroy R. Grumman Award at the Cradle of Aviation Air & Space Gala last week in Garden City, N.Y. The award honors the innovation of aviation leaders.
“I am deeply honored and humbled by this recognition,” Teresa said at the time. “For 50 years, from its beginnings at my parent’s dining room table where my father began designing and developing small oxygen components, East/West Industries has been dedicated to saving aircrew lives. We’ve grown to a team of more than 80 talented design engineers, management, and support personnel that we’re proud to call family, and we look forward to continuing to support the aerospace and defense industry innovatively.”
Over the past 39 years, she’s forged successful business relationships with major aerospace and defense contractors, including Northrop Grumman, The Boeing Company, Sikorsky Aircraft, and Lockheed Martin. Recently, she led the most significant business expansion in East/West history, including a move to a new facility, expanding the company’s footprint by approximately 50 percent, and creating a plan to expand the workforce by 40 percent in three years.
Besides Teresa, Mary and Dominic also had other two children; Joe Spinosa and Tony Spinosa. She passed away on 20 April 2021 at the age of 89. She had survived three battles with cancer and succumbed to the fourth battle.
