Having an attitude in a cooking show is a big NoNo. But Sergio Steele got a second chance despite not listening to the Next Level Chef judges and doing a shockingly poor job on his salmon dish.
So, who is he? Keep reading this Sergio Steele Bio to learn all about him.
Sergio Steele On Next Level Chef
Gordan Ramsey’s new cooking show Next Level Chef premiered on Jan 2, 2022, and it featured Sergio Steele alongside 14 other contestants. Just like the title suggests NLC took three teams, who competed on three levels of a massive three-story kitchen for a prize of a quarter of a million dollars.
The top-level which included the best line gadget and gizmo a cook could ever wish for was mentored by judge Nyesha Arrington. The middle level, with an essentially equipped standard kitchen, was handed by Richard Blais. And the Basement Level, which only received the leftovers, was undoubtedly chef Gordon Ramsay’s.
As seen on the first ep, the 15 contestants were split into groups of five and sent to different levels of the kitchen. So, after each of them cooked and presented their dishes, the selection began. Well, Sergio who poorly cooked a salmon on the top floor! and Courtney, a personal chef cooking in The Basement, were the final two left to be picked.
And to everyone’s surprise, chef Nyesha decided to give Sergio a second chance and took him into her team.
Given his arrogance and vanity, many were certain that he would be the next to go home.
Joining Sergio in this inaugural season were chefs — Zachary Adams, Reuel Vincent, Amber Rebold, Mariah Scott, Jonathan Harrison, Kenny Everett, Ae Southammavong, Angie Ragan, Courtney Brown, Tricia Wang, Roice Bethel, Gary Marandola, Stephanie “Pyet” DeSpain, and Devonnie Black.
Recalling his time on the show, Sergio shared that it was an “honestly unreal experience.” Also, he explained himself to a “beast in the kitchen that can keep a two-man station running by (himself) at 7:30 no problem.” Guess that explains his arrogancy.

We have no idea when the duo plans to get married.
However, we do know that the lovebirds were so in love as of 2022. And some of Sergio’s love for his future wife was also reflected in his IG posts. Over a post, Sergio wrote, “I’m beyond proud to call you my fiancé and counting down until you’re officially my wife. I love you.”
