— not easy for a chef to make it on the Chopped TV program

To date, chef Kurt Ramborger was the only deaf chef to

to be selected to compete on the program. The Chopped
production team gets many applications from chefs and
they follow strict procedures to pick few chefs and
eliminate many others for each episode.


— discrimination in the Deaf Community

“Not being deaf enough” in the Deaf Community is
a growing discrimination. A deaf girl said:

I’m proud to be among those who live with deafness. Yet
I often feel rejected by some of these same people.

Years ago at deaf clubs and deaf events, it was not
a discrimination. Unfortunately, times have changed.
