Exit Interview with Hell's Kitchen Contestant: Bobby the 4-Star General

Like a Gentleman, the 4-Star General Leaves Hell

I was a little bummed to see Bobby, the self proclaimed "4-Star General," booted from this week's Hell's Kitchen. I'm sick of Jen and would have enjoyed another episode with Bobby. When I spoke to him yesterday his cheerful, gentlemanly manner surprised me. Although he's currently working as the head chef of a grocery store in Buffalo, NY, Bobby is interested in making more television appearances. He had a lot to say about the experience — to hear his eloquent words about Gordon Ramsay

.

PartySugar: How did it feel to be eliminated?
Bobby
: Of course I didn't want to be eliminated. But I feel great. Am I bummed? No. In the moment I was a little shocked, I was certain he was going to say Jen and that I would step back into the line with the others. When I heard him say Gen — as in General — it took me a minute. It didn't register until he said, "Big boy, give me your coat."

PS: Is Gordon Ramsay really as big of a jerk as he seems?
Bobby
: No, no, no, no. When you meet Gordon he is like the pope. He gives off a great energy. He's really friendly and genuine. He's not an I-earned-30-million -last-year type of guy. The way he is in the kitchen, it has nothing to do with you personally. It's like he is the governor of food and he believes food has rights. One of the things he bills for is food served the right, best way.
PS: What was it like working in the kitchen? Did you ever really feel like you were in Hell?
Bobby
: They don't call it Hell's Kitchen for nothing. It was definitely hell. Working there took me to a place in my life that I've never been.

PS: Is there anything that you would have done differently?
Bobby
: No I would not have done anything differently. I walked in as a 4-Star General and I left as a 4-Star General. I didn't have to backstab anyone or plot against anyone to get as far as I did.

PS: Who are you rooting for?
Bobby
: I've sat back and watched all of the episodes and I didn't backstab anyone. I'm rooting for Petrozza. He has a heart and is the one person who gave me a sanctuary everyday. I really connected with Ben and Petrozza. Those are the kind of guys I would hire to work in my kitchen. Christina is an honest girl. I could even work with Mattie, there's a place for him in my kitchen always. I can't work with Corey, Jen, or Craig.

I wanna know where in Buffalo he is working. Tops? Wegmans? Next time I go home to visit my family I want to go and get his recipe for stuffed chicken wings. I HATE Jen. She drives my husband and I nuts.

I think Cory is going to win. Bobby just seemed kind of useless to me...

The only reason Jen is still there is cause of ratings. I bet Petrozza wins.

:) Well they've all been whiny at times I believe, complaining when they should have been improving themselves. And I was never a fan of Bobby, the so called *4 star general*. He got on my nerves saying that so much in the beginning.

Nyrina, I'm hoping that you intended a hyphen between crying and ass and not between ass and women. Otherwise, I think I've been missing large parts of the show... :P

i'm kind of happy that he's gone. to be honest, he really didn't contribute much to the show - he wasn't excelling at anything, and he was a 'big talker' which isn't helpful at all.

I haven't watched it yet (I DVR'd it) but when I heard yesterday that he got booted I was shocked!!!

Why in the hell is that Jen girl still on the show? I cannot stand more than just her voice. It sounds so annoying. There is no way Ramsey would give her a restaurant to run. Ramsey told Jen that in so many words just last week. Now Gordon has one mouthy one (Jen), the girl that picks food out of the literal trash can and cooks it (Corey), the other whiny one (Christina), and the last guy that's messy as hell (Petrossa). I have a strange feeling that Gordon just might give it to Petrossa. Ramsey may tolerate Petrossa's messiness before he puts up with nasty, whiny, crying ass women.
