Rock Harper Those who bet on Rock Harper to win Hell's Kitchen were rewarded last night.

The 30-year-old executive chef from Spotsylvania, VA was crowned the show's third-season culinary king during the finale of the Fox reality competition series.

In defeating Bonnie Muirhead, a 26-year-old nanny and personal chef from Los Angeles, Rock claimed Hell's Kitchen 3's grand prize: the position of head chef at a new Italian restaurant at Las Vegas' Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa and Casino. It's a job that comes with a $250,000 salary.

"This is just so big for me and my family," said Rock. "I just won. Thank God, I just won! I owe everything I do to my family. The fact that I finished, that I competed, shows my son and my daughter that if you really stick your mind to something, you can do it."
