    No but it helps add to the "skaggyness" quotient of the contestants. I swear, none of the players on Hell's Kitchen ever look like they bathe or wash their hair.

    The majority of the people in food service do smoke. Thankfully I gave it up 6 years ago after 30 years. That's why they get all freaked out on the line, they're having nicotine withdrawals. I deal with it every day with my staff.

    Do they really suck as much as they appear to, or does Chef Ramsay work hard to make them look like buffoons by blowing everything out of proportion?

    Ramsay's sous chefs are sometimes tasked with sabotage. That would increase the buffoonness quotient.

    I agree about the smoking...really unattractive and unappetizing to watch

    this show seems to be such a repeat of itself...nothing new, the contestants are so interchangable and angry for no reason, and egotistical

    I much prefer Top Chef where they have the chance to create dishes and use their imagination

    These are like line cooks who slag out the same old risotto and stuff season after season, beetch and moan, get yelled at, throw tantrums, undercut each other and smoke smoke smoke

    snore.......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    That's interesting Unklescott. Having spent a few years in food service myself I think you're right. (I quit smoking 10 years ago myself)

    So, do you have any theories as to why this might be a fact? I always notice all the smokers on this show, but hadn't really thought of it as a 'food service thing' until you mentioned it.

    This smoking question came up before - maybe in another blog. Someone wondered if smoking gave people a reason to ask for a break!

    I have no idea if that is true or not. I don't smoke, nor do I work in food service. I sure get tired of so many people dragging on a cigarette. I agree that it's unattractive. Do they wash their hands before they start cooking? It seems like they are jerked around a lot - are they given time for that?

    Not only is it a food service thing, but it tends to be a "service department" type thing. I currently work in health care and so many of the housekeeping, laundry, dietary and nursing staff smoke also. I noticed in retailing people smoked less, but in hotels they smoked more. I think it tends to be people in the average to lower incomes also.

    How come there isn't a recap of the 3/05 show? I missed the end, and came here for the recap, but there isn't one!

    I'm just glad you posted in here who went home. Thanks!
