  • Women dominate and men dwindle.

    Well Aaron's evacuation was't surprising, but this episode was so out of character. However, the Veterans season is here. Breakfast is easy to serve. Julia is the hero yet again cooking. Serving the army and navy is a huge honor. Aaron faints and is out of the competition. At dinner, it became true that The Blue team men had done well obviously and the women especially Joanna made rancid crab. Even the sous chefs had called it smelly. Jen shouldn't have thrown the pasta out she should've just left it there. In the end, Joanna's bad decision just got her ousted. Finally she's gone.moreless
  • chef Ramsey sadist?

    I believe anyone who watches this series and has never worked in the food buisness might think that Chef Ramsey is a bit of a sadist. Having worked in the food buisness both in the kitchen and as a server I know he is trying to steel them toward the time when the winner will have his own restaurant to run and will then realize that this is no picnic. It is hard work and you have to deal with all types of personalitites both in the kitchen and those being waited on. To succede you must turn out good quality food in a good time. Great job chef Ramseymoreless
  • The women's team is a wreck and reckless.

    Well, this episode, the mens teams really doesn't do much better than usual, but I think due to fatal mistakes made on the women's team, they were chosen for elimination. During the first challenge, in which, the two teams have feed our men and women in the service, the red team greatly outshines the blue team. The blue team is having a hard time making eggs of all things. I assume the blue team's troubles isn't due to skill but for some, the inability to function under Gordon Ramsey's and others are just not really working together to get things done. During dinnertime, the women fall apart. At some point, Joanna attempts to serve rancid food and ignores Gordon Ramsey, while another teammate tries to feed the customers food out of the trash before Julia intercepts her. The girls have to vote together who is going to be on the chopping block. It's pretty obvious what two people that is going to be, but some people are still concern about Julia's abilities and Julia, Jen, and Joanna end up on the chopping block. Ramsey sends Julia back to the line-up. In the end, Joanna goes home on this show. This would have been a hard one for me, but I think my pick might've been Jen, but Joanna was messing up during breakfast service also, so everything combine is probably what sent her home. And poor Aaron finally went home after being diagnose with an illness that preventing him from coming back to Hell's Kitchen, so Jen and Aaron was sent home. Great show. Crazy, yes, but still good.moreless
  • Another great episode with Ramsey giving hell to the contestants!

    The crap these contestants are taking is well worth the prize but a few times I thought a contestant or two were going to ring Ramsey's neck. Julia got to shine in the breakfast portion of the challenge. I like her. I don't quite think she is up on running a restaurant but I hope she goes far. All of the women in this episode were a bunch a whiny brats as far as I'm concerned. The only one who stood up the entire time was Julia. The men, they can't get it right to save their lives. The only reason they won anything in this episode was because the women messed up far worse than they did. Last, but not least, what kind of idiot pulls food out of the garbage to serve people? What kind of idiot pulls food out of the garbage to serve people while they are being filmed on camera? She deserved to be kicked! Donkey!moreless
  • I hate to be around Chef Ranasey when the health inspectors shows up!

    Day three of Hell's Kitchen has the cooks serving the military and Aaron fainted and he will not return. I didn't see all the hour's episode, I had to be elsewhere. I took off at the 38 minute mark after one of the cooks try to get pasta out of the waste paper basket. I didn't want to be around when Gordon Ramsey blows his top. It's tough for me to watch Chef Ramsey screamed at his cooks. Well, they probaby deserve it. they sign up, they know the conquences! They had to live though it. Next week, Day 4!moreless

    • This is the first time ever in the history of the show that they had to serve breakfast. This was also the challenge for this episode. The red team won and the blue team had to peel potatoes and onions for the army and navy, who were the guests at Hell's Kitchen.

    • Aaron passes out while the blue team is peeling potatoes as punishment for losing the challenge. He is immediately rushed to the hospital. It is revealed in a phone conversation between him and chef Gordon Ramsey that his doctors said he has a very serious illness and he is forbidden to return to Hell's Kitchen. This is the second time in the entire series that a contestant was forced to leave Hell's Kitchen due to illness. The first time was when Larry left on the second day in season two.
