'Hell's Kitchen' Winner Ja'Nel Witt — FAILED DRUG TEST

Exclusive

0823_janel_witt_article_getty
Hell’s Kitchen” champ Ja’Nel Witt tested positive for cocaine … and that’s why she wasn’t allowed to accept the head-chef position at Gordon Ramsay‘s restaurant in Vegas … TMZ has learned.

Talk about blowing a huge opportunity …

Sources extremely familiar with the situation tell us … Caesars Palace required Witt to submit to a drug test in order to take the job as head chef at the Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, the position she earned after winning Season 11 of “Hell’s Kitchen” earlier this year.

FYI — Caesars has a notoriously strict drug policy … and requires all employees to submit to drug testing.

But Witt bombed her test — one source tells us she “failed miserably” — and when Caesars found out … they quickly kicked her ass to the curb. 

But there is a silver lining for Witt — we’re told she WILL receive the $250k salary … despite the fact she won’t spend a single day in the kitchen.

Fun Fact — $250,000 can buy roughly 10 kilos of cocaine … depending on the quality.

Attempts to reach Ja’Nel were not successful.
