  • It\'s down to Virgina and Heather and YET AGAIN...Virgina won the challenge (by a bit). Both run their kitchens efficiently but Heather showed WAY MORE leadership than Virgina. So it madde sense that Heather won at the end.

  • In the end, it was a lot of suspense, a lot of excitement, and a lot of fun.

    • Keith: (demanding a bribe) You have to guarantee something. If there's money involved, I'm gonna make sure that I do everything in my power for you to win.
      Virginia: I don't have to give you guys anything.
      Keith: I want some money, and I want it right now in writing.

    • Virginia: I'm most worried about idiots on the hot line screwing up my food.

    • Sara: (when told to remake her empanadas yet again) I made a mistake, but but it's not the end of the world. I would say, 'Big deal', but that would probably land me a punch in the snot box.

    • Heather: Make this perfect!
      Garrett: Perfect, boys and girls.
      Sara: Just like you, chef!

    • Heather: (as she begins to plan out her restaurant) I'm going to be able to see my dream right in front of my eyes, and it's just an amazing feeling. I'm so happy, I could die. I want to win the restaurant first, then I'll die, but... (she chokes up)

    Trivia (7)

    • Virginia leads the Blue Team, but her menus are reddish, and Heather of the Red Team has dark grayish blue menus.

    • Chef Ramsay gives both of the finalists a ticket to London and an invitation to visit his restaurant so that they can see where it all started for him.

    • Virginia is given the Blue Kitchen by Chef Ramsay, in spite of the fact that she was never a member of the Blue Team, unlike Heather. The Blue Kitchen is the one always used once the contestants are consolidated into one Team, but the first winner, Michael Wray, was on the Red Team like Heather. Also, Virginia is given Maryann as her Sous Chef, even though she's in the Blue Kitchen, where Scott has always served, and Heather takes Scott into the Red Kitchen with her.

    • Virginia reveals to the press that the competitors had their own little dance routine that they made up, and she and Heather demonstrate it for the reporters, much to Heather's chagrin.

    • The members of Virginia's brigade, Keith, Giacomo and Tom demanded that she promise them each $1,000 if she won as payment for their best efforts.
