  • still not completing dinner services?

    This is getting kind of sad. They, yet again, couldn't complete a dinner service. They didn't even make it half way, well, the girls did. Ben was just terrible; he's had several bad weeks and he can't cook. Rosanne did terrible, yet again, but dogded the bullet. Jen just had a meltdown. Seriously, she get's screamed at once and looses it? Matt, somehow, did well. I was really surprised. I thought he would do terrible because he did terrible on the mens' side. I guess the team atmospheres are really different...I'm happy Ben is gone and I think Rosanne should be next. Oh, the taste-testing competition was sad; they're a lot worse than last year. Overall, good, entertaining episode.
  • These people would struggle to boil water.

    The teams had to taste meatless meals and not one of them notice. Then their palates were tested, and the women won it hands down, with the help of Matt.
    Now for dinner service, the men's team struggle continues. They cannot seem to get anything right, and Ben who has been living on borrowed time finally met his due.
    Who can cook, and who will win the job. I have no clue as no one seems to have the talent to boil water or cook. This is a reality show with no basis in reality.
    If the people going to Gordon Ramseys new place watch the show they will order wine and drinks, as they know the food will suck.
  • Will these guys ever learn?

    Week after week all these guys do is whine and cry and complain... if they would stop blaming other people for their problems and listen a little they would probably improve each week...

    Instead they are all so self centered... No one has any concept of Teamwork... really if they were so great individually they wouldn't need a reality show to get ahead in the business...

    You have Jen and Bobby talking about how great they are and how they are going to win... Please... Jen, you're skin is too thin, don't let people get you down and lose that chip on your shoulder... Bobby, you can't go solo in a kitchen, you need those guys, get in sync with them or get out...
  • Embarrassing

    Neither side did anything right, chicken was served raw on several occasions. A chef who had never done anything right, finally did 1 thing right and celebrated about it and looked like a puppy piddling all over himself, yet they weren't called out. Stations were left dirty, and they didn't get out their "product" yet they were barely called out.
    It was made clear to the viewers that the person selected to leave was chosen several shows before this one due to some sort of grudge held by the Chef.
    The person sent home had only their 2nd bad day, but they worst part about this day was that they served some lamb a little undercooked, even though others served their food raw.
    And the person kicked off had easily the best pallet out of their entire team.
    Just pathetic! And one person saved them self by admitting they were crap, and for that they were heralded for being brave, thats called breaking down, which was plainly obvious by the unstoppable tears after the dismissal.
