Last night's episode of Hell's Kitchen was very interesting. Ironically, it was both one of the most disgusting challenges and one of the most glamorous episodes. I can't imagine being the losing team — their punishment was so revolting that I felt sick watching them — and I envied the winners, who took an extravagant trip to Santa Ynez wine country via private jet. To read my opinions of the episode (spoilers ahead!), and share your thoughts,
- Would the two-part beef cut identification challenge have intimidated you?
- Can you imagine how tired the chefs must have been? If I were operating on three hours of sleep, I wouldn't be able to think straight either! (I still, however, wouldn't have pulled a Lacey and labeled the front of the cow with the "bottom-round" cut.)
- Which team have you been rooting for: red or blue? Which seems stronger to you?
- Would you have done what Robert did and given up your wedding plans to be on HK?
- Eating cow kidney, tongue, and liver after cutting apart a cow would have made my stomach turn, too. Would you have gotten sick like many of the girls did?
- I think steakhouse vet Giovanni deserved to be nominated for his poor performance on the grilling station. Was getting rid of Charlie the right decision? Should Seth have gone home instead?
- Who are the sharpest cheftestants? Which ones are your favorites?
If you didn't catch the episode, here are my favorite quotes from the show:
Gordon, on Seth: Where's the off button?
Colleen: Chef Ramsay's the arrogant, vicious attack dog.
Andrea, on Lacey: Oh, I sure have a bitch switch, and you f*cking hit it ever f*cking time . . . Couldn't Lacey have fell and twisted her ankle?
Gordon, on too-rare steak: It's still walking, that f*cking beef!
Robert, on the blue team: We've been on top of the world. It's time to get some humble pie.
Gordon, on Seth's ruined fillet: What are you going to do, get Daddy to buy you a new one?
