–      Michael grew up with a learning disability and was placed in Special Education classes when he was in 1st grade.

–      He was constantly bullied and called a “retard,” but he overcame his disability and graduated from high school without having to get a Special Education degree.

–      Michael works at McCarren International Airport, and he hates his job: “It’s a cesspool where people go to die.”

–      He was formerly employed by the Wynn Las Vegas, but was fired after he got into a fight with another cook and hit him with his tongs!

–      Michael calls his girlfriend his “wife,” because they’ve been together for almost 11 years.

–      He didn’t attend his 10 year high school reuinion, but if Michael makes it on to Hell’s Kitchen, he’ll definitely go: “They’re gonna know who I am…I’m not the person you all thought I was!” A win on Hell’s Kitchen would silence his bullies for good!
