"Hell's Kitchen" is a cooking competition that proclaims winners that competed with tears and blood just to win. One who competed and reached the finals was Paulie Giganti who became a chef not by choice but by chance. Giganti was found dead at his home in Philadelphia on the early morning of April 20.

According to Radar Online, the medical examiner confirmed that he died at 8:55 am after he was found unresponsive inside his home. The cause of death was not yet determined as the investigation has just started. The police cannot also comment whether there was foul play or trauma on his body.

Giganti owns a restaurant called Birra in Philadelphia. The New Yorker studied Engineering but accidentally discovered his love for cooking after he was trained by a chef.

Daily Mail reported that Paulie Giganti used to work in a restaurant while in college. He got into trouble and a chef working in the restaurant helped him. The chef told him that he can go to jail because of his ways but if he cultivates his little skill in cooking, he can always find work.

The 36-year-old chef revealed that the chef took him in and he worked diligently for him until he discovered that he loved what he was doing. He joined season 16 of Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" which aired from September 2016 to February 2017. He made it to the top 5 but was eliminated on January 19.

Paulie Giganti's death has not much detail yet. Such young and promising life ended so early after being known on television. Fox's and Gordon Ramsay's reaction is yet unknown.

Giganti is not the first of Gordon Ramsay's show contestants to die young. In 2010, Chef Joseph Cerniglia was found dead at his apartment in the Hudson who has apparently committed suicide. His family denied speculations that he killed himself because of Ramsay's treatment of him on his show.
