Lynn was shown to be a soft but competent individual. He was noted by Eddie to be somebody who would ask questions frequently, indicating a diligent side. He was also easily one of the nicest cooks, always being polite to his fellow competitors. In the kitchen, he was a relatively strong competitor, had strong plating skills, and was shown to be a great team player. Because of this, he was seen as a threat by many contestants, including Jordan, James, and Eddie. However, he quickly went on a downward spiral, as he began making basic mistakes (wiping a plate with a sweat rag being the most notable example), and had major problems with handling pressure, leading to his elimination. He was seen getting along with Jessie, Bime, and Natasha, however he and Krissi shared a mutual dislike for each other.

- (After being eliminated) "I am not happy at all that I'm going home, but there's nothing in the world I want to do more than to work in food and to really apply everything that I know and I've learned from here. I have no doubt this is gonna put me further in life with food; what I learn here is gonna really propel me in the next stages of life. I'm not leaving depressed, I'm leaving grateful because my life will never be the same after this. The judges have given me all these opportunities and now I have this entire life to look forward to."
