Out of Hell: Sharon the Barbie Sent Home

Sharon — who was affectionately called Barbie by her fellow Hell's Kitchen contestants — was this week's eliminated chef. It was a "first time in Hell's Kitchen history" moment when Ramsay kicked Sharon to the curb because she was not up for elimination. Two other girls — Jen and Christina — were on the chopping block, but since Gordon didn't believe in Sharon or her culinary skills, she was the lucky one sent home. To see what Sharon has to say about her time in Hell's Kitchen,


PartySugar: How did it feel to be eliminated when you weren’t up for elimination? What was it like when Gordon said he didn’t believe in you?
: I was totally shocked. It felt horrible. My heart just dropped to the floor. I felt like the whole time I was there — just because I wore makeup — he didn't trust me.

PS: Is Gordon really as big of a jerk as he seems?
: In my opinion, yes. Jesus Christ, when he made that comment about my makeup while we were digging out of the trash, I didn't even have any make up on! We woke up really early in the morning and I didn't have time to put any on. After he said that about Hannibal Lector, I will never stick my tongue out again.

PS: What was it like working in the kitchen? Did you ever really feel like you were in Hell?
: Yeah, absolutely. It was like boot camp. You're not getting enough sleep, you're not eating healthy, you're working 20 hours a day. It was really hard.

PS: Who are you rooting for?
: I'm rooting for Louross. I think he's a great cook. He's the only one I would really talk to in the house. Nobody really had any relationships with any of the others. Especially the girls. In all honesty, none of us got along great, none of us liked each other.

PS: Any tips for those applying for Season 5?
: Be aware of what you are getting into. Those people who don't think we know how to cook should try out. You have to know how to cook and it's really hard. Study your risotto!

Eliminating people who aren't on the block?! So much for play by the rules. Then again, it will be his business on the line, so he must do as he feels is best, I guess.

Personally, I think he made the right decision. He's the one who is going to have to deal with the consequences if, because of some silly girl's "strategic reasons," he's left with a total jerk that doesn't know how to lead or cook. This isn't Survivor where you just give them money and they go away forever. This is someone that will be running the kitchen of his brand new restaurant for a long time (hypotethically speaking, anyway). I hope this sets the precedent that you won't get anywhere playing silly games like that in the kitchen. A great head chef appreciates and works with the chefs in your group. You can't have a great service if there's no teamwork and communication. When you are the "best of the worst," keep up your game and eliminate the people that bring down the reputation of your kitchen.

i can understand why gordon wanted to get rid fo her, but then why even bother with letting the people choose who's up for the nomination. granted i like the philosophy of getting rid of the better competition, but shouldn't you at least get into the groove of service w/ good chefs before you get rid of them? we've all seen the show for 3 seasons to know that if you can't FINISH even one service - gordon ramsay is NOT HAPPY. jen or whatever her name is HAS to go - i can't stand her.

I'm going to defend the process and not pile on when someone is removed when they're not up for elimination. SUCK. Especially this early in the game, it's definitely strategic that someone's playing the game well and keeping the weak showgirls around in order to look that much better. Corey just knew what was up. It shows stupidity on Gordon's part not to allow the process to take the lead and to trust that Ms. Thang wasn't going to be bounced very quickly later on. Plus, it'd have made for kickass ratings. Keep the large-chested blonde on screen! It's like I don't know Fox TV anymore.. And really, how do you not know to study your risottos? There's one every season!

My favorite times as well remove people not up for elimination. Really though most the people are up for elimination are someone that slighted that person in some way. Honestly Both people up for elimination where for personal reasons she stated.
