Hells Kitchen Season One Winner Chef Michael Wray Update

Hells Kitchen Season One Winner Chef Michael Wray Update

Over a year ago I found Michael Wray and had the opportunity to sit down with him in my apartment and interview this famed chef. For many years Wray had been going through a really rough time after the death of his first daughter Trixie GoGo Wray. He had battled drug addiction due to a back surgery where he had Harrington rods implanted in his back to straighten his spine. Due to this, he had always had extreme back pain. borderline addicted. While on Hells Kitchen he was dealing with this. He had his doctors come on set and deliver him his medication. After his win on Hell’s Kitchen, he battled with addiction after the death of his daughter and ended up giving in to addiction and became homeless under the Burbank underpass in Los Angeles. Wray lived like this for a few years before getting his life back on track. At rock bottom, he decided to change his life around.
