Physical Appearance

Main article: Elliot Park/Appearance

Elliot is Josh's right hand man. He's a short man of Korean descent with black hair and brown eyes. Elliot almost every time wears his uniform for work. He is openly gay and stopped pretending to like girls in high school. He kind of likes Josh and he's not afraid to tell him.


Elliot is very negative when he talks with Gabi and tries to get her fired after she got the job because he wanted Chef Michael to get the job, but is very polite when he talks to Josh. He sometimes is not that strong person just like on a diet. He can easily eat something he was not supposed to.

Character History

However, as the series progresses, Gabi and Elliot come slightly closer and she goes along with him making fun of each other. In Young & Amnesia, it is shown that Elliot has a change of heart for Gabi and does care about her, wanting her back as Josh's chef and Elliot helps Josh remember Gabi, helping Gabi and Josh get back together.


Yolanda and Elliot have almost the same relationship as Gabi and Elliot. They make fun of each other.

Chef Michael
