  • They are starting to show some of them can cook, but still would not be a good diner line cook.

    Jen goes over to the Blue team and starts ruffling feathers. They blew the reward challenge by not putting the veal on the fish dish for a quasi surf and turf, and with a stupid move like that deserve to lose.

    Then the dinner service. The women started out good but slowly but surely self destructed, just like the men have done on many previous shows.

    I could not envision working for Gordon Ramsey, he would make me crazy if not homicidal. He expects perfection and should get it from real chefs, but he is working with wanna be cooks who have trouble boiling water.moreless
  • good episode...

    Jen joins the blue team and then the teams have to create four dishes with twenty ingredients. Louross screws up and Jen is a whiny little baby and can't get over it. Anyways, the service went well for hte blue and the red team just completely died. Rosanne finally went home, even though she deserved to go three weeks ago. Overall, it was a good, entertaining episode. Matt cut his finger (which was really gross) and he did poorly on service. Jen is annoying and so is Corey and they always talk about rising up and being the leader and they talk trash about each other all of the time. Overall, again, this was still a good episode.moreless
  • Guess who joins the blue team?

    Jen, agrees to join the blue team. I know, Jen hates Corey soooo much! Jen was right about not being "stupid". I thought blue team went downhill at first, but went back up. I'm pretty happy that Matt is continuing to go on. The challenge was good for the red time. The winner got to get into InTouch Weekly and a photoshoot, which accutally showed the fashion life of Matt. And the "next time on Hell's Kitchen" made it so exciting to see what happens next and who gets elminated next. I think next up is blue team. But now, that three are left it's gonna get hard.moreless

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Chef Ramsay: If the size of one's mouth corresponded to the size of one's talent, then Rosann would have been a world-class master chef. Unfortunately, she just has a big mouth.

    • Corey: (in an interview segment, expressing frustration with having to choose two team-members for elimination) The other people on the team are just making excuses right now for themselves. They're like little children.

    • Chef Ramsay: What a mess. The Blue Team was so much better than the Red Team -- it was an embarrassment.

    • Petrozza: (in an interview segment) It's remarkable. We are flowing well together. We're like Super-Blue.
      Narrator: The Blue Kitchen has proven to Chef Ramsay that they can cook. Meanwhile, in the Red Kitchen...
      Chef Ramsay: Chef Matt, from here, they look raw. They look raw!

    • Chef Ramsay: Where's the carrot puree? Rosann?
      Rosann: I'm running out of ca-- carrot puree.
      Chef Ramsay: Oh my God, almighty. **** me.
      Rosann: How about some carrots, Chef? I'll give you baby carrots, Chef.

    • Narrator: While the Blue Team struggles to get along with Jen, the Red Team is getting along just fine without her.

    • Narrator: After suffering a loss in the challenge, the Blue Team is up to their elbows in punishment, and Jen knows just who to blame.
      Jen: (to Louross) Stupid ass.

    • Jean Philippe: (to Jen) Are you going to be bitchy the whole day?

    • Chef Ramsay: (to a photographer from In Touch magazine) Have you got Matt's tummy tucked behind the door?
      Photographer: Yes.
      Chef Ramsay: Thank you.

    • Jean Philippe: (holding up a crab as Jen fumes over Louross's performance in the challenge) Jen, I've found your little friend. He's as feisty as you are today.

    • Chef Ramsay: (after Matt cuts off the tip of his finger, and the Red Team don't know what's happened to it) You just turned it into a 21 item challenge -- finger pancetta.

    • Narrator: Ten minutes into the challenge, the Blue Team is still dividing their ingredients, while the Red Team is already cooking theirs.

    • Christina: (in an interview segment) I'm happy about Jen leaving. It's like she's blocking your doorway with her presence and you can't get around her no matter what you do.

    • Jen: The Red Team is safe. I'm not a 'safe' chef- and I wanna see what happens over here on the Blue side- who's strong and who's not.

    • Jen: (in an interview segment) Corey is a manipulative-ass bitch and she thinks I'm stupid. I don't weigh her opinion as much as a feather in my mind.
