Belchertown Resident, Mary Poehnelt Remains a Contestant on Hell’s Kitchen

marypoehneltBELCHERTOWN, Mass. (WGGB) — A local woman has made it another week on the hit FOX show Hell’s Kitchen.

Mary Poehnelt who’s from Belchertown has avoided being eliminated tonight.

During tonight’s episode she was challenged by having to run a mile and a half then turn around and cook a meal.

Mary tells us she was proud of herself for making it through the run.

We caught up with her tonight as she watched the show with some friends at the Amherst Brewing Company on University Drive.

Mary told us, “It’s totally nerve racking having people you know watch Hell’s Kitchen with you or any show anyways.  You make mistakes you do things wrong and they’re like what are you thinking?”

The prize this season is the Head Chef position at Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
