Antonio Cromartie thinks he can win Hell’s Kitchen
TMZ Sports dropped a little gem last night from New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie. Apparently Cromartie isn’t just a top flight corner but he thinks he’s a pretty damn cook too. Antonio told TMZ Sports that he want’s to be on Gordon Ramsay’s “Hell’s Kitchen” but that’s not all. Cromartie also thinks he can win the competition.
We spoke to Cromartie — or “Chef Cro” — and turns out he takes his smoke game so seriously he’s willing to show the world he can out-cook the masses on the hit FOX competition cooking show.
“I want to be on Hell’s Kitchen and I think I could win.”
Cromartie isn’t talking about tossing some fish sticks in the oven either … it turns out the Pro Bowler’s culinary arsenal includes dishes like lemon herb chicken, pork chops, and of course, the staple spaghetti.

I don’t think the menu would impress Ramsay too much. Lemon herb chicken, pork chops and spaghetti? Well that sounds like the typical thing your average home cook whips up. Maybe he’d be better suited for Ramsay’s other show MasterChef which is tailored to home cooks.
I’d love to hear Gordon’s response and if he’ll give Cromartie a chance in the next NFL off season. He could be trying to setup his post NFL career. It’s also got me wondering and a bit surprised that Gordon hasn’t created a celebrity version of Hell’s Kitchen or MasterChef yet.
