  • Lunch service, sabotaging, team altering and tom being stupid what an intense episode

    what an intense dinner service there was a bit improvement as the teams served the patrons helf the entrees but absolute chaos reigned the kitchen. Tom and Rachel were the worst i felt sorry for Virginia because it wasn't her felt that the terbot wasn't ready and chef ramsay called her a liar because Sara hadn't started it yet but with tom well he was absolutely awful just like the whole service chef ramsay absolutly hillarious he calls tom a "f****** ****" after burning the duck and then gets replaced by K-Grease who the best chef in the kitchen and when its all said and done Tom who was being a total idiot saying he has given up more than anyone gets the chopmoreless
  • Wow, Sara is the bad guy, who'd a thought it!

    Headline reads: Sara Torpedoes Virginia! In a classic reality show maneuver, Sara who is turning out to be a real bad girl, totally screwed Virginia during service.

    Virginia is trying to push out product, waiting on fish from Sara. Sara keeps telling Virginia that fish is ready. Virginia relays this information to Chef. In truth the fish is not ready, Virginia looks like a cover your ass liar! Wow, it was great theater. Now, I cannot believe that Chef or his Sous Chef’s did not catch the subterfuge.

    The other story is that with Heather gone to the men’s side, the women appear dysfunctional as a team. The men on the other hand gained from Heather’s experience as a Sous Chef and leader. The men won their first challenge and if not for Tom, might have won the night.

    Final chapter, Tom is gone. That’s to bad but did we really expect a different outcome for him. I believe that he was the last week link on the men’s side. I think from this point forward it will be the men winning for a while.

  • A very special good and evil episode.

    First of all, I have to say that this episode finally put a label on some of the wannabe chefs here. Sara was clearly marked the villain for that stunt she pulled in dinner service, and made Virginia look like a liar, when it was actually Sara who lied. You can also slap another label on her... b****. Heather "shined" tonight, helping the blue team to a reward challenge victory, but she wasn't able to help them enough to win the dinner service. Well, it was actually Tom's fault, so he was eliminated. I guess Heather was the hero in this episode, and I hope she takes down Sara quickly. Keith also sort of "shined" in this episode as well, but I don't know yet. All in all, a very good episode that revealed true colours.moreless
  • Totally Awesome!

    DUde, The thing with the kids was out of this world hilarious. Ramseys at it again! I've had some of his food before and it is soooooo good! And the turnout tonite was incredible. I want Heather to win this entire thing or I will Go to the Hell's Kitchen and Choke a chicken and Throw it in Gordy's face! But I am very pleased on how the turnout went. I've wanted Tom to leave since day one! He's a kissup to Gordy and it gets him nowhere. His best thing sometimes is how he works the meat. I'm A Heather Fan anyway. THis Show Rulse!!!!!!!!!!!moreless
  • A fine example of the Ramsay Wrath. And it is apparent who rises above the rest....

    I'm glad Tom is gone. I have been grossed out by him since watching him sweat in the food during day 1. This episode clearly illustrated his incompetence and he himself admits that he can not cook. Then why the heck was he chosen to be on the show?

    Kids are picky eaters, and I was happy to see both teams knock out the unexpected lunch service. Okay, it was pizza, mac & cheese, hamburgers and french fries, but hey, I've had crappy food in that category. And it was great to see Heather kick some butt on the blue team. She is clearly rising above the rest.

    Once again, dinner service was a disaster. And Sara will get what is coming to her. I didn't like her from the get-go, and my hunch that she is a troublemaker was proven without doubt last night. I truly hope that someone points out to Ramsay that Virginia IS NOT a liar (which we all know by now that Ramsay hates) but rather Sara purposely sabotaged Virginia. She is a witch with a big old capital B.

    Looking forward to the next day....moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (9)

    • Sara attempts to sabotage several of her teammates by telling them that she is ready to bring food to the pass when they are, but when the time comes she tells Chef Ramsay that she had not even fired the fish yet, waiting for her teammates to call for her to start making it. Virginia in particular was berated by Chef Ramsay for their supposed lack of teamwork with Sara.

    • When Rachel runs to get ice during dinner service as part of her Team's punishment, she forgot to take any money to the store. She goes down on her knees at the store and begs one of the customer's there to buy the ice for her, and he agrees.

    • The children rating the kitchens must have been allowed to give half points, because each kitchen was cooking for 50 kids, and the Blue Kitchen only won by a half a point.

    • Chef Ramsay complained about the square shape of some of Sara's pizzas, but unlike every other time when he was unhappy with the appearance of food sent to the pass, he still sent them out.

    • The Reward Challenge: The teams had to prepare a lunch service for kids. The menu was changed to just pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs and fries. The kids would have to rate the food out of 10. The red team scored a 9.84, while the blue team scored a 9.85. The blue team was treated to a day at the amusement park, while the red team had to clean up the mess the kids made in the dining area. As a second punishment, the Red Team had to run and get ice when needed during the dinner service.
