Hell's Kitchen - 3.6 Recap

Hell's Kitchen - 3.6 Recap

Was it just me or was last night's episode of Hell's Kitchen somewhat entertaining? After catching the snooze fest that was the Food Network's shameful Next Star, Hell's Kitchen - with a gentler Ramsay (gentler = he did not break any plates) and glamorous photoshoot - was actually kind of fun. Melissa brought the boys down in battle lobster, Rock threw a temper tantrum, and Bonnie made something that impressed chef Ramsay. For all that and more

Following last week's elimination switch up - Melissa was moved to the boys team to prove herself - both sides are thinking positively. In a creative challenge, each team is given one hour to make 3 original lobster dishes. Josh is not allowed to participate because he mis-tasted lobster during the blind tasting. Bonnie turns into a whiny b*tch stating that she hates killing lobster, doesn't want to dip her hand into the tank for the shellfish, and blah, blah, blah. She then shocks everyone - herself included - with a tasty grilled lobster salad. Rock wins the second course with his buttermilk, fried lobster, and it comes down to a tough choice between Jen and Brad's respective lobster bisques. Ramsay declares the girls as winners and they find out that their glamorous prize is to appear with Ramsay in (this week's edition?) InTouch magazine. They are whisked off in a limo, guzzling champagne, while the blue team is left to sort through the trash.
The girls have a fabulous time glamming it up: Bonnie looks gorgeous, Jen looks a little tipsy, and Julia looks out of place (but doesn't she always? that's why I love her!) as they pose Charlie's Angels style - guns replaced by kitchen appliances - with chef Ramsay. Rock's anger builds as he is sent to empty the trash bins at the photoshoot. Luckily he is in a better mood by the time dinner service starts. The girls, perhaps on a high from being in a photoshoot, have an exceptional night with only a few blunders (Bonnie starts a fire, Julia has a breakdown). The boys+Melissa, perhaps still feeling gross from digging thru the trash all day, can't seem to do anything right. Brad ruins the risotto, Melissa fails to realize/admit that she overcooked the monkfish, Josh bumbles around like a clown, and the entire team runs out of mashed potatoes way before the majority of their dinners are sent out, forcing Ramsay to shut them down.

Obvious losers, the blue team is asked to nominate 2 people for elimination. At the chopping block Ramsay calls Melissa forward and sends her home (good riddance crazy!). Next he asks Brad and Josh to step up to the plate leading everyone to believe that he is about to boot another contestant! Instead Ramsay reiterates how crappy they were and tells them politely to get back in line and get the f*ck out of Hell's Kitchen.

And so another episode ends but not without some excellent sayings by the chef we love to hate, Gordon Ramsay:

  • Jen just watch where you are rolling that pizza cutter.
  • I call away a spaghetti and get a sea bass, and I get a risotto as a little gift I don't even f**king need.
  • Everything she touches she screws, yes chef no chef, screw that.
  • It looks like regurgitated dog food.
  • Blue team, let's put you out of your misery. You were crap. You got beat by a nanny, a waffle house cook, and a pastry chef.
  • Does anyone else think that the girls "won" the challenge because the pic for InTouch would look hotter?? I mean chef Ramsay surrounded by a bunch of male chefs...not so hot.

LOL I agree!! The boys wouldn;t have cared for a photoshoot as much as the girls. But I love this show, thanks for posting. I read this eventhough I watch it!

I, too, thought the winners were rigged for the photo shoot. Is it just me or does Ramsey get hotter every episode?

I can't help but find myself rooting for the girls over the guys, no matter what seems more fair. It makes the show more fun to watch with my fiance and I rooting for the respective sexes. I was pretty surprised by Rock's outbursts, although their conditions don't seem conducive to happiness.

This week Melissa's chin thing really did look like hair growth...(ew!) At least she's gone.

In regards to the girls winning the challenge: I think if the guys were to win, it would have been a different theme for the photoshoot. Just a thought. :)

They basically just try to find something as gross and dehumanizing as possible.

i was totally thinking that about the in touch cover! btw, i didn't find this episode as exciting as past ones. thought it was perhaps the most boring one so far. sorting recyclables as punishment? i do that at my own place!

Nice recap! I totally said that when he announced the girls as winners. The boys clearly were more creative and inventive with their dishes--which was the challenge at hand. Of course we cant taste the dishes, but it looked like the boys would win. When they didnt, I just assumed it was because Chef likes hanging with the women and it makes for more entertaining TV. (Enter his pizza cutter joke.) The other funny part of the night was when Chef kept calling Melissa Gremlin. Or was it something else? It was hilarious either way. Cya Melissa, and take your narsty acne chin goatee with you! :ROTFL:

Thank you thank you thank you! I fully intended to watch it last night but... so I've been waiting for this post all day!

I hate missing all that, but I'll have to wait till it gets shown in the jolly blighty! I have to love Gorden Ramsey though... a man who can't speak without cussing, and yet everyone knows he's a genius. Anyone else would get called mentally disabled!
