The body of a man who was featured on a popular reality TV show was found Friday floating in New York’s Hudson River, the New York Daily News reported today.
The body was reportedly that of Joseph Cerniglia, 39, a New Jersey chef and restaurateur who once appeared on the Gordon Ramsay cooking show “Kitchen Nightmares.”
The cause of death is reportedly under investigation, although authorities do not suspect a crime, according to the story.
Police answered a 911 call about the body not long after they received another call reporting that a man was seen jumping from the George Washington Bridge, according to the story.
Cerniglia was the chef and owner of the Campania restaurant in Fair Lawn, N.J.
