  • All in all the show is very entertaining, but like the chef said I don't see anyone yet that can run a kitchen.

  • Quotes (12)

    • Chef Ramsay: Mikey was all about appearances. Unfortunately for him, it didn't appear he could cook.

    • Mikey: (in his exit interview) Chef Ramsay really didn't like my performance. I knew I did crappy, but I still got my tattoo of Hell's Kitchen and I wear it with pride.

    • Mikey: (in an interview segment, regarding not being nominated for elimination) Honestly, I-- I was really surprised that nobody said me, but they didn't, so...

    • Jason: (in an interview segment) Andrew? I don't know what happened to that cat. Chef Ramsay hit his ass with some fairy dust and made his ass disappear.

    • Andrew: I don't-- I don't really care what Chef Ramsay thinks of me. I'm done. Have a nice day.

    • The narrator mentions that Andrew is just the second person to walk out mid-service. The other was Dewberry in the second episode of season one. Unlike Andrew, Dewberry came back to complete the service.

    Trivia (3)

    • Rewards Challenge: The chefs were woken up at 5 A.M. and asked who was ready to fight back. They were presented with a challenge called Eggs Four Ways in which they were told to split into pairs, with each pairing having just five minutes cook eggs in four different ways-- poached, soft-boiled, sunny side up and scrambled. Since the Red Team had an odd number of members, Chef Ramsay asked Siobhan to cook alone.

      Reward / Punishment: The Blue Team won this challenge, with a final score of 11-10. Siobhan did not follow Chef Ramsay's request and had help from Autumn in cooking her eggs. As such, all eggs that were supposed to be cooked by Autumn and weren't were disqualified. For winning, the Blue Team received a helicopter tour of Los Angeles, followed by champagne with Chef Ramsay. For losing, the Red Team was forced to unload a shipment of tuna, then clean, fillet and gut it.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Despite Andrew's quitting during service, there was still an elimination at the end of the episode. The Red Team nominated Autumn for over-salting the water at the start of service, as well as not being a team player and overpowering the other chefs. The Blue Team nominated Jason for not being a team player, making it difficult to work with him. Eliminated: Neither. Chef Ramsay questioned the Red Team's reasons for nominating Autumn and asked if she was really the worst chef. They were forced to admit that she was not and then put up Jamie in her place. After both Jamie and Jason gave their reasons why they should stay, Chef Ramsay called Mikey out of the line for the Blue Team and told him to take off his jacket, noting that it was the second service in a row where Mikey's poor performance held up the Blue Team.

    • Quit During Service: Andrew. Chef Ramsay kicked him out of the service for talking back after he criticized him for his poor performance on the garnish station. He did not tell him to take off his jacket, but Andrew decided to simply quit the show rather than either try to fight to stay or go back to the dorms.
