Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Rachel is the first contestant eliminated from season two that is complimented by Chef Ramsay before she goes.

    • When the Chef asked Virginia who her two nominees were, she spent more time explaining why she wished she could nominate Sara (because the contestant lied to Chef Ramsay, making Virginia look bad to him in the previous dinner service) than she did in saying why she ultimately chose Mirabelle as her second nominee.

    • Best of the Worst: Virginia

      Nominees for Elimination: The Red Team's Rachel and Maribel.

      Eliminated: Rachel

    • The Reward Challenge: The Taste Test. After tricking the contestants into thinking they were eating gourmet food, Chef Ramsay sees that their palates need testing. Each team member wore blindfolds and headphones so they couldn't cheat. Ramsay would give them a food to taste and they would have to guess it correctly. The Red Team got 7 right, and the Blue Team got 6 right. The Red team was treated to a TV Guide photo session, while the Blue Team cleaned up the kitchen.

    • Tonight marks the first night Maribel was placed onto the chopping block.

      Tonight marks the first night Virginia becomes the "Best of the Worst."

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Chef Ramsay: (referring to Garrett and Heather) Those two are cooking like ****ing donkeys! Should we change the ****ing logo? 'DK'?!

    • Chef Ramsay: (after Rachel is eliminated) Rachel clearly couldn't handle it. She buckled, panicked, and actually screwed the kitchen completely. You've got no chance of running a successful business if you can't handle one section.

    • Maribel: (about Virginia) I trust her as far as I can throw her, and she's pretty heavy. She's a down-low bitch, oh yeah.

    • Chef Ramsay:(To Garrett after only cooking one portion of quail instead of two) You're one portion short, you ****ing donut!

    • Chef Ramsay: (to the Red Team ladies after serving overcooked quails) Ask if there's any customers with glasses?! Does anyone need a pair of glasses?! Seriously?!

    • Chef Ramsay: (to Garrett after serving the lamb sauce) Thank you very much. Now **** off, you fat useless sack of ****ing Yankee-Dankee-Doodle ****.

    • Sara suggests in this episode that the relationship between Heather and Rachel was a bit too close. In interviews after her elimination, however, Rachel denies that they were friends, and said they did not stay in touch at all after this was all over. But in a special for the Fox Reality Channel of the contestants and crew called Reality Revealed, the contestants bring up Heather and Rachel's "relationship" multiple times. Heather says that she and Rachel were very close, and stayed friends after the show. It is also hinted that their "relationship" may have been more than just friendship.

    • Almost ten months to the day of the first airing of this episode, Rachel Brown died. It was ruled a suicide.

    • This episode was postponed one week due to the Fourth of July coinciding with the show's air dates.
