It amazes me that people who are on a team will do something like what the one woman was doing after the women's team lost - mouth off about the fact that she WON her point, so she shouldn't have to clean the kitchen . . . those who DIDN'T win their points should have to do it. You may have that opinion, but to actually voice it, you are setting yourself up as a target when the team has to vote on who to eliminate in the future.
I agree with those who would like to see co-ed teams from the beginning. Draw names out of a hat or something . . . the whole male/female team breakdown is just unnecessary in Hell's Kitchen. Do any of you think that a mixed team would result in women being eliminated earlier because of potential intimidation if there's an alpha male on each team, other than 2 alpha males battling it out on an all-male team?
