  • I never seen that before...EVER!!!

    I have never in my life seen in HK where a kitchen side was totally shut down. My goodness, why is Alan still there, cant debone for nothing, and Eddie; well he tried and got the axe anyway. As for the Red Girls, it was a total opposite of what happened last week and with the breakfast meal coming up, I totally think that the girls will rock once again because of the short order cook that they have. But hey, to be in the service and eat in Hells Kitchen, good for them. Makes me want to get back in the Military...moreless
  • No real winners on this show yet.

    So far, I fail to see how it will be possible for any of these contestants to win because they all stink. I felt bad for Little Eddie when he wasn't firm enough with his teammates and it caused him to be confused. At this point in his life though, he should already have realized that if he wants to be heard and/or taken seriously, he needs to be loud and firm. So, I think Ramsay made the right call there between Eddie and Josh. Vinnie continues to irritate me.

    Last week I felt bad for Aaron. He's 48 and overweight. He didn't feel well and he cried. This week, he's still 48 and overweight and not feeling well. He didn't cry as much as he did last week. I don't understand why this guy doesn't ask to see a doctor if he's cramping and not feeling well. When he spaced out in front of Ramsay, why didn't chef insist that he be seen by a doctor? Of course, I realize he may have done this off screen and it was never put into the show, but still...a small clue that perhaps he was seen by someone. Aaron has issues. He doesn't have confidence in himself and that might be what makes him nervous. He said the others were "younger" and "better than I am"...he needs to knock it off and start kicking ass. He berated himself saying all he knows how to cook is Chinese food. Why did he even bother trying out if he doesn't think he's good enough???

    Like I said, so far, nobody in these groups jumps out at me as a potential winner. The girls have no respect for each other and they don't know how to be teammates; it seems like they are only in it for themselves. The men are no better. The only thing that saves this season for me is classic Ramsay. Someone clearly needs to step up before Ramsay starts cursing and commenting about how there will be no winner this season!

    Gave it 9.6...all for Chef.moreless
  • Crowd:"Hey Grandpa! What's for supper?" Grandpa Jones: "Chicken and Snot!" Crowd: "Yum-Yum"

    Day two of the Gordon Ramesy's hellish ramage continues. I'm glad that I'm not a cook. But to gordon, cooking is more than just frying eggs, or hamburger. It's a job that should be appreached. I write reviews and I appreached that. The theme is appreach what you lkove to do. Gordon Ramesy love to cook and he hates to see people screing it up. that's why he gets mad. today the cooks skin fish and get into fights with Gordon over the food they cooked. Plus Aaron playing comedy relief and he cry his eyes out. Next week, more of the same.moreless
  • Definitely the standout among the reality shows this summer (and let's face it, that doesn't take much), Hell's Kitchen was back with another installment of whiny wannabe chefs.

    Definitely the standout among the reality shows this summer (and let's face it, that doesn't take much), Hell's Kitchen was back with another installment of whiny wannabe chefs. After their disastrous first night at the restaurant, Gordon Ramsey wakes them up to take them fishing. Oh did I forget to mention by fishing, Ramsey meant catch fish with your bare hands while still in your pajamas? Of course Ramsey went for the easy joke comparing the size of a tuna to the size of Eddie. C'mon Ramsey, I expect high-brow English wit!

    No sooner did the chefs "catch" their fish than did they have to prep them. Oh did I forget to mention that by prep, Ramsey meant peel the skin off and squeeze out the fish eggs? The red girls had to go up against the blue boys sans Aaron. Did I forget to mention that Aaron had another breakdown after catching fish and was sent back to bed by Ramsey? For being the oldest member, he sure does act like a baby. In the end it was the red girls team that was able to skin more fin. Their reward? Deep sea fishing. After the morning they had, I'm sure the last thing they wanted to see was more fish.

    The girls continued to lead after the restaurant opened. Aaron continued to screw up, leaving bones in the fish fillets and add his own "special" ingredient: the sweat off his nose! He continued to act like a child when introducing himself to customers: "Hi I'm Aaron. Well of course I am! It's on my shirt!" But Aaron wasn't the only chef screwing up: Eddie couldn't cook spaghetti, Josh couldn't cook steak, and Benny just plain couldn't cook. Not surprisingly, Ramsey shut down the boys' kitchen and declared the girls the winner.

    Surprisingly, Benny and Aaron avoided the chopping block. Instead Josh and Eddie went head-to-head (maybe spatula-to-spatula). Now Eddie I can understand: the kid's got heart but he doesn't have talent. Josh however does have some chops. Maybe a strategic move by Rock, putting Josh into the bottom two? All I have to say is watch out in the kitchen Rock. You never know when a stray fish might hit you in the back of the head.moreless
  • Getting to know the contestants!

    After watching day 2, I wondered how many people around the world (i.e. Waffle House cooks) and thought they should've entered! Apparently, you dont have to actually BE a CHEF, because the guys got took to school! I absolutely love this show. Chef Ramsey is like a Simon Cowell on steriods and pissed off. LOL

    I can't wait to see how he deals with the loudmouth on the guys team.
