Let's Dish: Hell's Kitchen 4.2

Let's Dish: Hell's Kitchen 4.2

Didn't you think last night's episode of Hell's Kitchen got off to a much better start than the first episode? The contestants had to dig through garbage, fillet, slice, and portion a whole halibut — finally something a chef really has to do, prep halibut! — and cook dinner service. For winning the halibut challenge, the boys got alone time with Ramsay on a yacht. To see my thoughts on the episode and discuss it at length,


First off, I know I mentioned it last week but Jason is so sexist it makes me sick. After he made the Tupperware comment, I almost turned off my TV. I can't wait for Ramsay to nail him and send him packing. Now that I got that off my chest, let's dish:

  1. Was anyone else totally weirded out by the Double Dare-esque dig through the trash? Were the cheftestants not given enough time to change out of their pajamas and put on shoes?
  2. Didn't Gordon look super hot when he threw the whole halibut on the table and started cutting out perfect 6-ounce portions?
  3. What do you think of Jennifer? Was it OK that she was angry at Corey for losing the portion challenge?
  4. What about cry-baby Petrozza? Should he have been sent home for wanting to quit?
  5. Why wasn't Gordon pissed when Rosann said she had been holding tickets because she didn't want the kitchen to get too crowded?
  6. Were you surprised by Corey's strategic decision to not put up Sharon for elimination? Did she do the right thing?

And the part you've been waiting for, my favorite Ramsayisms:

  • On the chefs' appearances after digging through the trash: You better start giving a damn. Now go get in the showers, I'll meet with you in the kitchen. You stink.
  • On the importance of knowing the menu: Is it really that hard to know the menu inside and out? Eat, sleep, live, breathe it? I have 3,000 menus in my head! Now move your ass.
  • On Petrozza's failure to know the menu: You know, you're on the verge of making me look stupid.
  • On Sharon's presence in the kitchen: Sharon you are scaring me. You look like the female version of f***ing Hannibal Lector. Put your toungue in for God's sake.
  • On Sharon's presence in the kitchen, part two: You're not really a chef, are you? You're just a show girl with a big feather coming out of your ass.

They're all morons. However, one is a bigger moron than the rest of them each episode and that's the one to get eliminated. I can't believe Corey stated what her strategy was to Gordan. I am glad that he shut her down and kicked off Sharon instead. I was sorta expecting it. And the tongue thing was gross.

Not only was Corey stupid in her selections - for her to get up there and say that she selected one girl for "strategic" reasons and the other for "personal" reasons was *really* stupid. For one thing, if you're trying to play the game strategically, you don't want to tell your competitors what your strategy is! I mean, that's like if a general in the middle of a war went and handed his battle plans to the enemies general, and then still tried to use it. I understood her being upset about the bad portion pick, but I do think she overdid it. And I wasn't at ALL surprised that Gordon dismissed her choices and kicked Sharon. It's not the first time he's done that, so I was pretty much expecting it, given just how irritated he was with her. That thing with her tongue, OMG! That was actually almost worst than Jason picking his toes last week because with Jason, at least there was the possibility that he'd actually washed his hands and we just didn't get to see it. With Sharon, her tongue was just right there, dangling over the food, and I didn't even want to think about the possible sanitary problems that presented. As for Jason, I think (or, ok, maybe just hope) he's trying to play a character so people will talk about him. He wants to be a "star" that people will recognize. What a putz!

To answer your questions: 1. No. It's Fox - we expected any less? I'm surprised they let the cheftestants put on clothing at all. 2. So not my type. But I'll admit that the man's skills are über-impressive. 3. Definitely OK that she was angry. Definitely NOT OK that she called her out in front of the damn kitchen. There's something about her voice that makes me cringe. 4. You've never had a bad day? Petrozza shouldn't be sent home for wanting to quit. And if he's on the winning team, no, he shouldn't be sent home, period. 5. Sometimes there's just nothing more you can say. Seriously. When faced with a train wreck like that one, your brain goes into spasms just trying to survey the idiocy. I hope Ramsey's got a medic on his staff. 6. That there was some top-notch strategery there, Corey. Too bad it bit you in the ass, but I was hardly surprised by it. And I'm actually kind of pissed off at Gordon for not having enough faith in the system that he and his producers devised for getting rid of the idiots. Shame on you, Gordon, for not trusting the marketplace. I'm kind of tired of the men looking like jackasses. But per the 'next week...', I see that they're not exactly learning. Again, duh - I'm watching Fox. Gordon must have been pissed off not to be sharing his super-yacht with the ladies. Sucka.

Oh where to start! I thought this was a COOKING show, don't you have to be able to COOK??????? I mean, WOW. What'd I miss about tickets? What tickets? I didn't think I left the room at all but I must've! SOMEONE TELL ME! LOL JEn, I cannot STAND that EGOTISTICAL little &*@^#$)*(&@#%*^#$&*)&*(#@^%$&*)@^#Y$~!!!!! (Don't want pop getting mad at me so I can't what I REALLY think LMAO) OH MY GOD I wanted SO BAD for her to have to try and pick up an EXACTLY 6 ounce filet! See how SHE did! Corey did very well, Hell, I couldn't have guessed the difference between 5 and 6 ounces. Of course again, I'm not on what's supposed to be a COOKING SHOW. And Jason, hon, when you leave that show I'd exit by the back door, because the front door is gonna have a whole CRAP load of women outside it just WAITING for your ass!

The men just look awful, I think all of us are rooting for them to lose. Could you be more sexist? Jennifer was out of line. Rosanna is an idiot. I liked Corey then I think she shot herself in the foot with the nominations and I knew he was going to ignore them and get rid of Sharon. she was useless and her makeup was bad! I love the Gordanisms!

I will definitely cheer when Jason gets it. Did anyone else see the part where whatshisface hit the customer in the head with the chair? I thought Jean Phillipe was going to explode.

Jason is disgusting, and honestly, most of the cast is pretty pathetic. The only reason I'm watching at this point is Gordon.

Honestly the whole cast sucks this season, I simply watch it b/c I secretly think Gardon Ramsay is Hot. Rosann keeping the tickets was hilarious! I mean, are your serious?! :rotfl: Bobby gets on my nerves, its obvious hes not a team player and that irks me. I am so surprise Petrozza (among many others) actaully made it on the show. LMAO @ Sharon's tongue, that was...gross.

One of the funniest moments for me was when Bobby was buttoning up Petrozza's shirt and trying to get him back in the kitchen and Petrozza just stood there whining about being "done". Seriously, I couldn't believe this grown mas was standing there crying like a baby while Bobby was dressing him. Too funny! :D

Petrozza is a wimp and should have been kicked off. Did he think he was joining the Girl Scouts?
