Rachel Brown Hell’s Kitchen Death – More than 34,000 Americans commit suicide annually, however, it appears that two high profile victims may have had one thing in common. Both of them appeared on Gordon Ramsey’s reality shows.
Joseph Cerniglia, 39, leaped to his death from the George Washington Bridge, according to the New York Post. He had appeared on the show “Kitchen Nightmares” in 2007, and Gordon Ramsey had helped him whip his Italian restaurant into shape. He was deeply in debt at the time and had been struggling to make his business profitable.
In 2007, Rachel Brown also committed suicide after appearing on “Hell’s Kitchen,” a reality show that also features Ramsey. Although it is not believed that their appearances on the shows had anything to do with their deaths, it certainly is a startling connection that will bring a lot of attention to reality television and the negative effects that it has on the contestants.
It will be interesting to see what the motivation behind Cerniglia’s suicide was. Had his business gone downhill since Ramsey had attempted to help him save it?*Sponsored Links*
