    LOL... I wonder how much of the anger and fits are for show?

    What blows my mind is that one of the 7 left will actually become executive chef at TBones Chophouse at Red Rock with the option to invest as a partner...Are any of them worthy? There has to be some contract with Red Rock outside of the show that states expectations, etc.

    The only person I see having a legitimate chance is Heather. At least she shows some form of leadership. Would G.R. really stake his reputation without some kind of clause in the contract?

    Forgive me if I've missed any of the fine print. But I just can't believe that outside of Heather, any of the remaining contestants are worthy of the position.

    Just my .02

    Well if Ramsay doesn't have the confidence to hire them as Executive Chef, then maybe he'll do what he did last season: offer them a job with Ramsay. I think Ramsay took a survey of what he saw in his winning contestant, and thought he needed a touch more polishing before he owned his own restaurant, so Ramsay wanted Michael to work with him first. It's a good face-saving move, but I don't think he can get away with it again.

    Back before the whole "Reality Tv" genre became an everyday part of life; we had a name for those fabulous prize "clauses": LIES!

    Sir Ramsay

    Gordon Ramsay is now Sir Gordon Ramsay, he has been knighted by the Queen.

    'HELL' CHEF GORDON'S KNIGHT TO REMEMBER

    By DON KAPLAN

    July 8, 2006 -- SIR Lancelot may have had a sword - but Sir Gordon has a chef's knife and a temper.
    Gordon Ramsay, the British devil-chef and star of Fox's "Hell's Kitchen," has been knighted by England's Queen Elizabeth.

    Ramsay, one of the world's best known gourmet chefs, is almost as well known for his foul mouth as he is for his exclusive restaurants and TV shows.

    But he says that he was extremely well-mannered around the Queen. He told the BBC that he had "a nice chat" with the Queen, but "didn't rib her" about not being chosen to cook her 80th birthday meal.

    Ramsay wore a black suit with a white shirt and tie for the ceremony, but ditched the tie as soon as it ended.

    "I kept it on for the most important part and the shirt is a bit small, so I was holding my breath, going blue in the face," he says. "But I would never attempt addressing the Queen with no tie on."

    The ceremony took place in Ramsay's native Scotland.

    Right on!! I'm so happy for him. Now we need to get him and Sir Elton together for a real bitchfest. Imagining the nastiness now...

    From above posted article: "I kept it (tie) on for the most important part and the shirt is a bit small, so I was holding my breath, going blue in the face," he says. "But I would never attempt addressing the Queen with no tie on."

    What with all the money GRrrr makes from restaurants and tv deals, he can't get himself a shirt that fits him right?!!

    Maybe he should have had Jean Philippe pick out his attire for him. Obviously, his maitre'd can successfully wear a suit and move gracefully at the same time!

    From what I've been able to glean, Ramsay was not knighted; he received an OBE, which does not entitle him to put "Sir" before his name. American papers just can't get it right!
