The chef who beat Foothill High School graduate, Mary Poehnelt in the finale of Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" a few weeks ago has cooked herself into some trouble.

 Ja'nel Witt tested positive for cocaine, according to celebrity news website TMZ.

TMZ reports it's the reason why Witt can't accept the head chef job at Gordon Ramsey's Las Vegas restaurant.

That was the prize for winning the reality show cooking contest.

Witt will reportedly still receive the $250,000 dollar salary.

Ramsey's restaurant is at Caesar's Palace, which reportedly has a very strict anti-drug policy.
