Little Louross Leaves Hell

On this week's Hell's Kitchen, Louross — the self proclaimed "little Filipino kid who no listens to" — was asked to hang his chef's coat and leave the competition. I was bummed to see Louross go, but looked forward to speaking with the quick chef. Yesterday morning we chatted about Ramsay, Jen, and everything in between. To take a look at our conversation,


PartySugar: How did it feel to be eliminated?
: You know what, I'm bummed. You should be interviewing Jen right now. It was a trip. It didn't hit me until I left through the doors. Petrozza eliminated me. I was kicked off before Mattie, before Jen. Are you serious? I understand why Petrozza did that. It's a competition and he eliminated threat. He played his cards right.

PS: Is Gordon Ramsay really as big of a jerk as he seems?
: No I don't think so. I learned a lot from him. He pushes you for success. Even if he calls you a donkey, it's like he is your parent and he's giving you tough love.

PS: What was the dynamic like between the team when Jen joined?
: The dynamic went down a lot. All of a sudden she was taking charge. You know it's not the Jen show. She was saying so much crap, she was like Ben — all talk. She didn't know what she was talking about. I tried to keep it real, but I knew. Literally, I looked at Bobby and Petrozza and thought she is going to be like poison. I could feel it.
PS: Do you feel like you were a scapegoat?
: Honestly the people that wanted to listen to me and took my advice — Craig, Jason, Matt, Dominic — the reason we got along was because we were in the same room. Bobby and Petrozza were plotting against us. They didn't want to work together as a team. I told them, Ramsay is giving us the answer, he's telling us to work together. The prize is not a solo project, you are going to have to work together with others. So I stuck to my guns and tried to work as a team.

PS: Who are you rooting for?
: Actually, I'm rooting for the girls side — Christina and Corey. Those girls are soldiers at heart. When it comes to the kitchen. Corey and Christina both cook from their heart and know what they are doing. Bobby and Petrozza? They are getting old. Christina and Corey are still young and have a lot going for them.

PS: Would you like to say anything to your fans?
: To my fans: much love and support. I know everyone was pissed off when I left. That decision was like, what the hell? Thank you for your support, and come see me if you want. I'm the chef at my own kitchen. I'm at the Ritz Carlton in Lake Las Vegas at the Galileo Lobby Lounge. I'm making bar food, but you know come on down.

i just don't like matt. i don't know why he is still there. he has no vision and no heart. when push comes to shove and you have two line cooks out with the flu and another out because he was drinking the night before, fell down the stairs and broke his toe, you don't want a guy like matt next to you. he is the guy who gives up, who runs off and pouts so you are left alone. Then he comes back the next day with his head down, and says that he is sorry and he never does stuff like that, but lets face he does. ok that is my little rant and rave. thanks for letting me get that out

Ugh spoiler! I have it on my DVR and haven't seen it yet! At least with the Top Chef quizzes you don't flat out say who was eliminated, even before a jump! Not cool.

I will miss him. He cooks from his heart. Jen may know more, but she cannot keep bossing and tearing people down and expect them to work alongside her. She might win, but at what cost?

He's so little that a good bean fart could blow him clear across the kitchen! ;)

I was disappointed with that decision too. I really respected his decision last week not to compromise his dish just to fulfill the requirement. Your ability to work with the other chefs in the kitchen is a major factor and Jen lacks that completely - she should've been the one to go. Oh well, I think Louross has a lot of passion and potential though and I'm sure it'll work out for him in the long run.

Actually Petrozza is the only one who hasn't gotten on my nerves this season so far. I don't like any of the girls. Bobby bothers me, so I guess I'm pulling for Petrozza. I think Louross kind of just gave up after last week, that's how it felt. I kept wanting him to speak up to Jen, but he never did.

there are so many people that could have or should have gone home this week - and it's a shame that lourusso was the one to go, but he would have gone home in the next couple weeks anyway.

I love TOP CHEF but I cannot DO this show. At all.

Awww...he was so cute. That was really generous of him to wish for Corey and Christina to do well. And he's right, I've been thinking the same thing about teamwork. Each one is trying to show how great they are individually and it won't help if they can't be part of and lead a kitchen. I hope that Jen will be the next "after elimination" interview.
