  • I hate to see Bonnie go but....

    really, could they have kept her till the end with the garbage incident. They'll put her behind some big restaurant in Las Vegas only to see that some people might be afraid that the same thing would happen to them. I wish her the best of luck in her job but she really really messed up with that one. I'm still not rooting for Rock, but I'm really not seeing how Bonnie is going to win. She's admitted to not being able to deliver in the kitchen, but you never know with these sensationalist shows like Hell's Kitchen. I guess we'll see in the end.moreless
  • Bonnie saved again.

    Started watching this show a couple months ago and it seems like week after week Bonnie is somehow saved from elimination. Doesn't surprise me though, seems like its more the producers' decision to keep her because she's the most attractive person on the set -- pretty lame. She also really lacks the confidence in herself to lead a successful restaurant if you ask me -- always breaking out into tears and crying about how she's going to be the one eliminated for the night. Well, now that Bonnie has been dragged out to the last round with an actual strong competitor like Rock, she should finally be eliminated for the finale. At least I hope so, otherwise I'm not watching this show anymore or its spinoffs.moreless
  • Jen got a raw deal!

    Jen got a raw deal IMHO and that despite the spaghetti incident, she really has done good. And that Ramsay was a jerk that he dismissed her. Now it is the ditzy Bonnie and Rock that are in the final two. I will pick Rock as he is the "lesser of the two evils!" Jen really didn't deserve to go home.
  • Bonnie in. Jen out.

    This episode's elimination was such a big surprise. Honestly. I had already predicted Jen and Rock to be in the final 2 not BONNIE and Rock.

    Jen has more experience, drive and talent. I wish everyone could get past Jen's little Spagehetti Incident because she hasn't made any major mistakes since. Plus, she won the food challenge this episode.. doesn't that count for anything?

    Bonnie is a complete ditz in the kitchen despite her fine palette. Bonnie was cooking when the stove wasn't even on! How more spaced out can you get?

    Jen got a $1000 shopping spree, I'm happy for her! I believe Virginia got the same thing last season.

    Ramsay's decision: Smart? or for personal reasons? He could've eliminated Jen because he has a thing for Bonnie (similar to last season's Virginia) OR he eliminated Jen because it makes his decision easier in the end. O well.

    Good luck to the Final 2, I'm rooting for you Rock!moreless
  • good episode...

    The top three have to compete to try to become the top two. The competition was to make a well known comfort food into something that could be served at a fancy restaurant. Jess won and got to spend time with her mother. The dinner service was when the top three were able to take the hot pass in their control. Jess was voted out and Rock and the nanny are in the top two. I liked this episode because it was really cute to see the chef's mom. No cursing around her. It was sweet. However, it was exaclty what happened last season and it was predicatable. Oh well, good episode, good show.moreless
