The New York Post reports that Joseph Cerniglia, owner/chef of Campania in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge. His restaurant appeared on the first season of the U.S. version of "Kitchen Nightmares", and has remained successful. In 2007 Rachel Brown, who competed a year earlier on "Hell's Kitchen", shot herself to death in Dallas.
