Michelle and Elise earned Ramsay's suspicion when they announced they were making a dumpling soup and paella, respectively, as Ramsay was expecting Italian dishes for this challenge. Challenge 3: For their final challenge, Ramsay gave the three chefs 30 minutes to cook whatever they wanted and had full range of ingredients in the kitchen. This is solid mindless entertainment of the first order. He serves as the order co-coordinator, with final say on whether dishes are presentable. I don'e know much about Jen and her attitude on the show. So when he comments and anyones attitude, they should pop him in the mouth.
He also struggled to make hot appetizers and cold appetizers at the same time, requiring Nick and Robyn's help, but managed to recover. They made him into this one-dimensional raving lunatic chef, and put people into situations that are designed to bring out the worst in people. The whole appeal is in Gordon Ramsay tearing people apart. I'm a fan of both Top Chef and Hell's Kitchen. Nick missed Jocky sending up a veal chop instead of a pork chop, but caught mistakes from Christina, Michelle, and Milly, the latter of which was struggling with a poached egg.
Elimination: The blue team considered nominating Van for his struggles on fish and Milly for raw steak, but are interrupted by the red team arguing from across the hall. I do however think that the last two standing will be Ralph and Michael. Both teams took turns in picking ingredients which started with a letter. He's opened a restaurant in Los Angeles called Hell's Kitchen. And Ramsey may be an jerk in the kitchen, but i get a little smile every time a customer is yelled at by him. The women gained a 30-second head start for the real challenge: to recreate a seafood tower with four tiers as different pairs of chefs replicated one part of the tower to Ramsay's approval. Ramsay complimented the blue team as none of their members had gravy dumped on them.
During this process, Nick overcooked the beurre blanc sauce for one of his dishes, but managed to recover with the help of Sous Chef Christina. In the end, the Red Team lost again and Dewberry was voted off. By watching this show I somewhat feel sorry for the chef to bes to be pressured under Gordon Ramsey's rants and harsh criticisms. Wish they can find him better candidates in future seasons. Find out which all-star makes the biggest first impression. Both teams got off to strong starts on appetizers, but had struggles on entrees with their respective meat stations. Service: For this service, each of the final four had a turn on the pass with Ramsay not only testing their leadership skills, but their quality control as Sous Chefs Christina and Jocky would be intentionally making mistakes.
The protein is quail, the two vegetables are eggplant and baby leeks, and the wild card ingredient is cauliflower. A frustrated Ramsay kicks Josh out of service, much to the relief of the red team who perform much better afterward, though Elise earned some of the other chefs' ire by standing around and doing nothing. She will be a great asset to Hell's Kitchen in Las Vegas. Ramsey has taken this one-note act and spun it into quite a career. They then had forty-five minutes to use those ingredients to make a festive inspired dish.
I know I would not last. She then refired the lamb in the same pan that had been used to cook the steak, which was a cross-contamination hazard. An irate Ramsay dragged Robyn and Benjamin into the dining room, threw the former out of the kitchen, and berated the latter for not stepping up as a leader. Cook For Your Life Challenge: Instead of a service, Ramsay announced that tonight is a Cook For Your Life Challenge and asks Michelle and Nick who they think are the three weakest chefs on their respective teams. Its worth every painful scripted line just to see Gordon Ramsay yell his eyeballs off.
Michelle won the challenge by beating Milly, who had beaten Robyn and Nick, and then beating Benjamin. Ashley was kicked out of the kitchen temporarily for being distracted by her watch, and Manda again struggled on garnishes. After hearing their pleas, Ramsay simply sends them both back in line and warns the remaining chefs to correct their mistakes, or else. If you want a show where the chefs get to display their culinary ingenuity, hit up Top Chef or Iron Chef, etc. Contestants 16 former contestants, who made it to the black jackets on their original seasons, competed once again during the season. It makes me angry talking about this show.
However in the long run, maybe he isn't ready to have his own restaurant. Finally, on the salmon dishes, Benjamin also scores a perfect 5, while Robyn scores a measly 1. But I cannot stand watching Hell's Kitchen. I don't like that Survivor or Simple Life crap. It became more about 'the characters' then food.
Also intimidates everyone that crossed his path. After Robyn got to the Black Jacket Lounge, Ramsay and the sous chefs brought champagne to the lounge and congratulated the remaining chefs for being in the final five. Raw chicken sent to the pass prompted Ramsay to send the entire red team into the pantry. Service: Rapper and Musician was seated at the chefs table. It's an acquired taste no pun intended.
They put out such trashy shows as that bimbo Paris Hilton living a normal person's life or seven idiots posing as the Gilligan's Island castaways. Michelle performed well on the fish station, only having trouble when she was slow to bring up the sauce for a halibut. In addition, Michelle's Asian inspired Tortellini Soup which was the best dish of the day was added in tonight's menu. While the women were angry at Robyn for costing them the challenge and puzzled at her demonstration of a fortune-telling rock Elise even suggested that the rock could have told Robyn when to cook the salmon , they were even more annoyed at Elise for not helping out with the risers outside of Hell's Kitchen. I can't believe Ramsay yells at his cooks, but what gets me is that he speaks that way to the customers!! Giovanni sent up a burnt order of pork alongside a well-cooked one, and Benjamin and Jared sent up a raw order of duck for the twelve-top table, forcing Jennifer to step in and rescue the table.
