Let's Dish: Hell's Kitchen 4.3

Let's Dish: Hell's Kitchen 4.3

In last night's episode of Hell's Kitchen, the contestants chickened out — literally and figuratively. As a wake-up call, the wannabe chefs had to chase and catch live chickens. Later, during the dinner service several members of each team cracked under the pressure. After the girls won the chicken-cutting challenge — and took a trip to one of the Sunset strip's most famous restaurants, the Saddle Ranch — they stooped to new lows to figure out the men's weaknesses. To discuss the episode and check out my favorite Ramsay quotes,

.

I don't know about you, but I was incredibly relieved to see Jason sent home. Weren't you disgusted by his futile attempt — and sexist remarks — at being a pastry chef? The episode brought to mind more questions:

  1. Does Corey have evil tendencies or was she just playing the game?
  2. Did you think Gordon was really going to make the chefs chop off a live chicken's head?
  3. Was it a good or bad idea for the girls to discuss their strategy with Ramsay?
  4. Were the girls obviously trying too hard when they wanted to get the guys in the hot tub?
  5. Doesn't Gordon seem totally obsessed with tableside serving?
  6. Did anyone else wonder what dish the crispy bacon was for?
  7. How would you feel if Gordon yelled at you in the middle of the service? Would you cry?
  8. Did you think Christina was going to put Corey up to the chopping block?

Everyone knows that the best part of Hell's Kitchen is when Gordon goes crazy. Besides repeatedly banging his head on the kitchen counter, here are my favorite Gordon Ramsay moments from last night:

  • On waking the contestants to hunt for chickens: Wakey, wakey. Get your chicken and head downstairs now. . . . Not these chickens you doughnuts!
  • On Rosann screwing up the Caesar salad: You're not f**king stupid, you're from the backstreets. . . . you got me, yeah f***ing right you got me. Welcome back you f***ing bitches of hell!
  • On Jason finally remembering the desserts: Big boy put your mind to it, you would be surprised what you can do in life.
  • On the girls burning four steaks: This is f***ing embarrassing, that's not a f***ng saute pan. That's a furnace, it's scorched. Cooking my ass!
  • On Vanessa's presence in the kitchen: Talking to you in service is like talking to a refrigeration unit, you're stone cold

Does Corey have evil tendencies or was she just playing the game? No, I don't think she has evil tendencies. But I do think she's insecure and did something incredibly stupid. Again, this isn't 'Survivor'... this is a kitchen. Standard reality game strategy is extremely counter-productive in this scenario. Was it a good or bad idea for the girls to discuss their strategy with Ramsay? I thought it was a bad idea. This is your future employer. It's good that you're competitive, but I think it shows that your priorities are in the wrong place. How would you feel if Gordon yelled at you in the middle of the service? Would you cry? I could probably psych myself up, but I'm not going to lie... it would be hard for me not to cry. They don't get that much sleep, they're on TV 24/7, they're under an incredible amount of pressure. -- I definitely want Kitchen Nightmares back. :/

Question and answer time! Huzzah! 1. Definitely just playing the game. Say what you will about her tactics: cutthroat, impulsive, or even just plain stupid, nothing about what she has done screams out as evil. 2. I did, and I was rather disappointed that he didn't. Precisely because there's a prevailing sense that when food comes prepackaged and pre-portioned, it removes us from the plain fact that to eat meat, we must take life. It seems exactly paired with Gordon's own philosophies on food, and I was a bit sorry he wussed out. 3. Nope. That was just tipping your hand. Note, though, that the 'well done' toast at the end of that scene was clearly taken out of context. 4. Absolutely, and it was freaking hilarious. Freshman year all over again. 5. He does, and I don't care for it. 6. No - if you watch closely, you'll recall that the scallops and quail eggs have bacon on them. 7. Dude wants to yell at me while I've got my knives out? Crying is not the action that comes to mind. 8. I did. And as a fan of Corey's, I'm glad she didn't. I will say a great thank you to the editors of this episode for limiting some of Jen's copious 'personality' this week. Ugh, that girl's got to shut her damn mouth. Personal reflections on the episode, that shot of leg shaving was unnecessary, Christina's tummy is a little on the spongy side, and seriously, would you seriously sit in a hot tub with Jason while he's dropping cigarette ash and bbq into it? That's rank. And boy, Craig has got to go next - what the hell was he doing? Maybe all of his skill was in his hat, like Samson's strength was in his hair. Without it, he's completely lost.

I love Hell's Kitchen but so far it looks to me like they casted a bunch of idiots. In previous seasons I was cheering for someone by now, or I at least LIKED someone. I hope Kitchen Nightmares comes back!

While I have no doubt that Jason is a sexist, I tend to think he was actually over-exaggerating the point simply to get more attention. He knew that the more outrageous crap he said, the more airtime he'd get and the guy is a TOTAL attention hog! I mean, when he talked about winning, he didn't say anything much about being able to fulfill a restaurant owning dream, it was that all the women would be after him because he had a quarter-million dollars. What an ugly, ugly man - especially on the inside. SOOOOOOO glad he got the boot! # Does Corey have evil tendencies or was she just playing the game? I think she's just playing the game, but she's playing it badly. As others have noted, you don't want to get rid of the strong people right away, because every time your team loses, you're at risk to get sent home, so you want to *maximize* your chances of winning each night by dumping the deadwood first. Idiot. # Did you think Gordon was really going to make the chefs chop off a live chicken's head? I honestly wasn't sure. He DID make them kill lobsters on one episode, so it wouldn't be totally unprecedented, but for some reason butchering chickens seems a bit more extreme than killing lobsters, though that's really not fair to the poor lobsters, is it? # Was it a good or bad idea for the girls to discuss their strategy with Ramsay? Probably not - he doesn't care about their strategy, he cares about whether they can do the job or not. Showing your hand by discussing your "strategy" says that you're not confident enough in your abilities to allow yourselves to be judged on that basis alone, and may lower his view of your capabilities of being an executive chef. # Were the girls obviously trying too hard when they wanted to get the guys in the hot tub? Oh yeah. And Jason was a dufus for falling for it. He spends WAY too much time worrying about his lower anatomy - no wonder there's nothing left to power his brain. # Doesn't Gordon seem totally obsessed with tableside serving? I think it's just that because there are so many contestants this season, he needs to have someone out of the kitchen to keep it from being any more chaotic than it is. I expect that as the contestant count drops, the tableside service will disappear too # Did anyone else wonder what dish the crispy bacon was for? I think it's for the scallops and quail eggs starter # How would you feel if Gordon yelled at you in the middle of the service? Would you cry? I'd like to think I wouldn't, but I probably would. Either that, or I'd wind up yelling back at him, and that would NOT be a good thing to do! # Did you think Christina was going to put Corey up to the chopping block? When I heard her reassuring Vanessa, I was pretty sure she was going to put Vanessa up - it seems like anytime you see the chooser comforting or assuring one of the choosees that they're fine or they won't be picked, they get picked.

Thank God Jason is gone! His stupid sexist remarks pissed me off! My husband says that Jason hates women because he never gets laid, and the proof was his horrible pick up line to Corey in the hot tub, "Hey, how you doin'?" Disgusting!

1. Does Corey have evil tendencies or was she just playing the game? ***Nah, she was just trying to get rid of her competition. She was playing the game. 2. Did you think Gordon was really going to make the chefs chop off a live chicken's head? YES I DID, But I was really glad they didn't do that. I mean, that's what happens, chickens get their heads cut off, I used to have to do it myself, but it's NOT something you should show on TV. 3. Was it a good or bad idea for the girls to discuss their strategy with Ramsay? I don't think it was good OR bad. It was just talking. 4. Were the girls obviously trying too hard when they wanted to get the guys in the hot tub? Yes, but stupid Jason fell for it. LMAO I was glad it was him that did, stupid sexist idiot. 5. Doesn't Gordon seem totally obsessed with tableside serving? Yeah, what's up with that this season? 6. Did anyone else wonder what dish the crispy bacon was for? Yeah, I did. I think it was for the Salad though, wasn't it? 7. How would you feel if Gordon yelled at you in the middle of the service? Would you cry? I might! IT's pretty stressful having all those people up in your face all the time, and when you're tired, your emotions are at the surface more. 8. Did you think Christina was going to put Corey up to the chopping block? Yeah, I really thought she would, but I'm glad she didn't. Overall the best part of the episode was the "head banging CHef" and FINALLY seeing that SEXIST ASS**** JASON leave. UGH that guy p***ed me off! "Maybe if I'd been up there and cried I wouldn't be leaving right now." Yeah, yeah you would Jason.

Jason made me sick. I couldn't stand that douche bag. His sexist remarks made me soooo freaking mad. I am glad he went home. Good riddance.

I turned it off after I saw Chef Ramsey with the chicken & the knife. I totally thought they were going to murder chickens on camera. I'm glad to hear that they didn't do that.

Jason the Jackass has left the building! YES. I love watching Gordon and the truth is you should never do something like this with out watching at least one season. So if you've done that then you know what to expect. Suck it up and move on. But I don't like this tendency lately in reality shows for the contestants to call each other "evil doers". It really bugs me. They are all there to win. I do think Corey showed her hand wayyy to soon. If you want to stay in the winning group you have to get rid of the worst. And Hooray for Cristina for putting up Vanessa. I'm glad she stayed though.

Ding dong, Jason is gone. Thats all I cared about. I think Corey is an idiot, not evil. Its way too soon to be scheming. Does Gordon, rehearse his crazy phases?

I love this show. But I am sooooo damn tired of seeing grown ass people crying in front of the world. It's not that stressful. I mean if they want it that bad then they wouldn't bicker so much like children. They would work together more. But I do love watching Chief Ramsey getting ticked off at them acting that way :)

I'm SOOOOO glad Jason is gone. Not only were his sexist remarks annoying but it seems like he never even tried. He was always just standing there and making excuses! My hubby did laugh pretty hard when he fell into the hot tub. :-D And my favorite part was when Gordon got so mad he was banging his head on the table!

Huh. I never knew Saddle Ranch was a famous restaurant--that's where we used to go to drink on the weekends! I don't think we ever ate there.
