    I thought that was totally unfair. You got to hand it to them, though. They took that delivery and finished both their and the red team's service.

    I was so looking forward to Sara going home. I was positive Ramsey was going to give her the boot. Why didn't he?

    Either the producers did this on purpose, cause if these folks were the best they could come up with I would love to watch and audition piece with the worst ones. That would be a lot more entertaining then watching this train wreck.
    I agree. I've been wondering -- they couldn't get twelve people with actual restaurant experience? Heather and Virginia are the only two, I believe, and they're both babies. I think they might both grow into this kind of job, Heather especially, but they're not even nearly there yet.

    Is this show, or Ramsay, so reviled in the cooking community that no serious sous chef will try out for it? Or is it just supposed to amuse us to watch people who can't cook try to cook for Ramsay?

    Me too. ::sigh:: I guess, though, that in Ramsey's mind, a bad bitchy pseudo-leader (Sara) is better than a whiney no-leader (Maribel) at all?

    My guess is that it's the show -- no one is going to take seriously any aspiring chef who resorts to going on an über-gimmicky reality show that also showcases cafeteria and prison hash-slingers.

    If he wasn't taken seriously in the industry, he wouldn't have gotten the third Michelin star.

    I think having people with varying degrees of experience makes it more interesting. If they were all super competent they might be more qualified, but then what would Ramsay have to yell about?

    ETA: Someone who's really capable wouldn't need the leg up that this show gives.

    I was kind of fascinated during the first season but after Top Chef, Hell's Kitchen's flaws glare more brightly.

    Got it that entertainment is the name of the game but some credibility is necessary in reality TV.

    The diner next week must have found glass, a push pin or other sharp object in her dinner. One can acutally eat glass with no ill effects. This was illustrated on some dumb show where I watched a man eat light bulbs.

    I knew Maribelle was out. It was an entertainment decision. The final two are going to be Heather and Keith, doesn't matter what order they leave, at this point.

    zzzzzzzzzzzz I watch but this is just soooo silly.

    On the preview I thought I heard something about someone threatning to kill somebody?

    The preview for next week is something like One Chef does the unthinkable, and cooks something that could have killed a customer. I'm thinking something like cooking blowfish, but leaving the poision sac in.

    From tvguide.com:
    With only five chefs remaining, chef Ramsay disbands the teams. Now the wannabes must all work with---and against---each other as they prepare dinner service. But first, last week's winners take a trip to Las Vegas to see the hotel-casino that will figure large in the overall winner's future

    Voice Over: What happens when someone makes the biggest mistake you can make in a kitchen? Ramsey, "You are going to kill someone". Then it cuts to a diner throwing her plate on the ledge that seperates the dining room from the kitchen.

    I appears as though she found something dangerous to eat in her food.

    I don't post during the show because I time shift. (dvr)

    What's with the Matre D refering to himself in the 3rd person
    "JP is mad"
    "JP needs a beer"
    "JP went poo-poo in his pants"

    The cook of was kind of silly. ramsey did something simlar in his Nightmare show, to teach someone how to work under a budget. But HKs version was weak. The Blue team should have won.

    Garret, what an idiot, do these people know they are on camera all the time.

    The firing: I was hoping Sara and Garret would go home. Then re-align the teams and shake things up

    Heather and Mariabel vs the Keith and Virginia.

    Heather and Keith are the front runners.
    Make them the sou-chefs, and have to get one of the weaker member thru service.

    And lastly ANYBODY BUT SARA,

    I thought Ramsey was going to pull a Trump and fire the entire red team, LOL. Glad I forgot that the person going would be so unexpected.

    I agree Maribel has been fairly forgettable, but then again with her quietness I think she might have a level of maturity that the others all appear to be lacking. If Ramsey is looking for a leader he also needs to think in terms of someone who won't cause the staff to stampede the heck out of there. There is no way any sane person would agree to work under the SaraBot. Also thinking that Ramsey's wife would be really pissed if any of the girls who have been sucking up to Ramsey (mostly Virginia, but also Sara during last night's reward) won the contest.

    Sara can't/won't win. I'm not in a hurry to see her thrown out. As long as Ramsey is willing to slash her down to size, I'm willing to enjoy the entertainment value!

    I didn't quite catch JP's hissy fit. What did he say?
