Who are Mary Lou and Cody?

Mary Lou Davis is a stand-out contestant on Hell’s Kitchen season 19.

She is energetic and bold and, by the looks of things, will stop at nothing to bag herself the prize of Head Chef position at Hell’s Kitchen in Lake Tahoe and a salary of $250,000.

The 28-year-old hails from San Antonio, Texas and has Twitter users calling her “hilarious”. She’s a favourite to win this series.

Cody is a 26-year-old executive sous chef from Sherman Oaks, California.

He’s been cooking since he was 8 years old, and took part in the competition without any sense of taste or smell!

When he worked in Germany around four years ago, he had an illness which left him unable to use both senses. He has regained a small sense of smell in his nose.
