Looks like Nilka is not the winner of Hell's Kitchen.
Nilka Hendricks, West Hempstead
Hendricks, a chef, said she lost her Manhattan restaurant job in March 2009 after a six-week leave to participate in a "Hell's Kitchen" competition, which has been airing on Fox.
The restaurant had said it would hold the job open but later said it needed to fill it, she said. And it had nothing else, Hendricks said. She looked for a job for about six months then thought about opening a catering business. She went to Black Women Enterprises, a Hempstead-based business-support group, for help with a business plan last year. She began a private catering business in February and uses the kitchen in the local catering hall of a former boss.
Later this year, Hendricks, 30, plans to open in the Vibe Lounge kitchen, which she plans to redo. She said she has always wanted to work for herself.
"I'm tired of working for other people," she said. "If they can do it [own a business], I can do it."

I am not surprised that someone who took 6 weeks off of work to participate in any activity (short of being a military Reservist or Guardsman) would lose their job. There is a decent size list of Survivors who had to quit or lost jobs because of the time that they were gone. I would imagine that the food industry has been hard hit by the recession so I can see that it might be hard to find a new job.

But really, what can FOX do? The season was in the can before it was announced. Holli works for Gordon Ramsay now, not FOX. All they can really do is not invite her back for the S8 finale.

I would be very surprised if there is not something similar in the HK contestant contract, actually I remember reading in an interview with one of the early season contestants that they could not even use the HK name to promote themselves, even after the season they were on was over.
Having said that I do think that FOX is asking a lot for you to keep quiet for 18 months, especially if you have won.
