    I'm glad this time all of the returning bootees were pulling for their chefs and not trying to sabotage them. Some of the final drama is always dealing with the incompetence of some of them. So I suppose some of the contestants have to be culinary idiots or impossible personalities.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the $250K is just for the first year.

    Haven't watched yet (our electricity went out at 8:10 ). Glad to hear that the returning contestants were helpful. I've never understood why on shows like this and The Apprentice, many returnees don't give their all. First of all,it should be a matter of pride. Second, don't these people understand that it's an opportunity to showcase their skills and work ethic in front of potential employers. (Well, maybe it's more true on The Apprentice than this show. I guess most HK bootees have already proved their incompetence.)

    The finale was simply a real letdown. Not much to scream about, other than the fact Holli won.

    Editing probably should have been a little different. I mean, we all know to take these reality shows w/ a grain of salt (i.e. all challenges always end w/ a tiebreaker, etc) but it made the ending look rigged to me. I thought the editing made it obvious that Jay was the superior cook.

    Wait ... what.

    Holli is going to Australia with Jay and then moving her son and his dad to London ... ? Really.

    I read an interview with her and the restaurant is still not opened, but she is going soon.

    Ramsay offered to send both Holli and Jay to Australia, and Holli was giggling over the possibilities.

    I liked Jay and Holli, and I'm pretty happy that Holli won.

    Yay! I'm so happy Holli won.

    The finale was kind of strange - no decorating their own restaurant space or creating a theme this time. Was kind of subdued, almost felt like a regular dinner service with bozos back to "help."
