Candida Baptista, the third-place competitor in SIC’s “Hell’s Kitchen,” accuses Lyubomir Stanisic of sexual harassment. Previously, the former competitor had already sued the chef and figure producer for an alleged attack on her dignity.
SIC’s “Hell’s Kitchen” producer and chef Ljubomir Stanisic have been brought to court by Cândida Baptista, a former formula competitor, for an assault on their dignity. The third-place rider seeks compensation of €40,000.
Later, Candida Baptista accused the chef of sexual harassment. Fees go back to the period between December 2020 and January 2021: “This is a process related to the treatment I received in the programme. Chef Lyubomir molested me and it was obvious,” said the former competitor at the time.
As Candida Baptista explained how she felt during the programme: “I was sick of everything that happened, the whole situation… I couldn’t even watch the show. I didn’t make use of the interviews, photos and events, because it makes me sick just thinking about it. Every victim has a way of dealing with it and I would rather see nothing. I only saw one of the The semi-finals, I couldn’t see more.”
The former contestant revealed that she wasn’t the only one feeling uneasy about Lyubomir Stanisik’s “inappropriate behavior”: “Two people who were also on the show called me to say the same thing happened.”
