Episode Summary


The two finalists prepare for the final dinner service of the season, knowing that one of them will be crowned the winner of Hell's Kitchen. Neither wish to fall down on the job with an executive chef position worth a quarter of a million dollars at stake, but they find themselves faced with two giant albatrosses -- Matt and Jen. Neither are happy at returning for the final service as prep chefs and neither look to be at anywhere near their best. With these problems to manage, Petrozza and Christina also work to finalize their menus and the design of their new restaurants. Once everything is in place, the two chefs set to work on the final service with two very conflicting menus. Despite various setbacks, both turn in strong services that leave Chef Ramsay in agony as to which he should choose as the winner of Hell's Kitchen.

  • didn't care for winner

    Sorry but I hated Christina and the constant put downs towards Protraza. I guess that was okay by others though. Glad she didn't get what was promised to her. She was an over rated winner.
  • Culinary student learns what it takes, while catering director takes it on the jaw. Big Bad Wolf... Not so bad after all. This season was a tossup all the way. Worst bunch of contestents that could ever be picked or cast. Concludes with complete overture.moreless

    From the first episolde the final. They were all wannabes. No one was well rounded enought to be or do anything. All had flaws, SERIOUS FLAWS. The who season was flopping allover the place, and Personally would have walked and cancelled the season. Petoza maintained his Loveable Lump persona, and would do well to continue his current job. It got him to where he is, and he seems quite happy there. Having him get hardline on his crew would not fit him, and he would have had a hard start. Opening a new restaurant, would not suit him, as he would have had to hit the ground running. Christina, showed that she can be a witch if she need to. She treated he crew fairly, and was ready to kick butt if needed to. She showed she was able to coax Matt to participate, ad even a slacker level. If Matt was a dufus act. Cristina didn't stand for it, and relageted Matt like trying to get a kid to complete his Homework. Throw your temper tantrum later, just dou what i ask you to do. Matt wasn't getting anywhere with his shinanigans, and he came to what he needed to do. Petro is set in his style, and Cristina is learning. Cristina can change and take charge. Deal with the confilcts later, after the service is done. Petoza would never be hard nosed enough to sastisfy Ramsey, or to keep his crew tight. That may be his downfall for the show. But it still will carry him in a less high class muckety muck socity. Petroza can run a successful reataurant. But not a formal Black tie, and suit restaurant. I forsee him better in a elegant dining athmospere.moreless
  • Wrong person won!

    I think that the wrong person had won and that really Christina shouldn't had won at all. And that the other person had the experience. Sure it is nice for a woman to win. Which, being a woman, it is hard for them to acheive in a male-dominated world. But that Louis has a really the most experience. And that Louis was laid out to pasture. Don't know why Christina won as she didn't deserve to win. Gordon Ramsey must had been blind, not to see that. Hope the next season will be better as it ended on a downer IMHO!moreless
  • well, dissapointed, but still a good episode...

    So the two finalist compete in their last dinner services. I thought both teams were pretty even. Corey and Bobby are both good while Matt is terrible and Jen is a butthole. I thought Petrozza's menu was unique and interesting, while Christina's was safe. And, with it being safe, she still had problems executing it. Petrozza did a far better job in service. He ran out of food, which is bad on his part, but at least he compromised and made it work. If that happened to Christina she would have freaked. Well...somehow Christina won. I guess it's just because she's young. Petrozza did far better. Overall, very entertaining episode.moreless
  • This episode had it all, ups and downs but to me no surprise who won.

    I like both of the finalists. Petrozza has experience but not in running a kitchen, neither does Christina but her kitchen at least did not run out of things.

    Both of them were stuck with real loser sous chefs Jenn and Matt, both of them self destructed, and I actually believe that Jenn did it for spite, you work at a fast food place and cannot cook an onion ring, now even I know better than that.

    Matt is just way out there. I do agree with chef on who the winner is. Petrozza had to wow them and he did not, Christina does have more overall potential and did not let her sous chefs screw her on the prep. She was more prepared for the service than he was and it showed. Petrozza on the other hand had no ingredient lists or prep lists and it was like notes everywhere, and to run a world class restaurant you need to be organized.

    That fact alone made her the winner in my book.moreless

      Chef Ramsay: I feel like I've been on a roller coaster for the last three months. Of all the Hell's Kitchens, this has been the one with the most ups and downs. But we ended on a high, and right now, it's time for me to get the **** out of Hell's Kitchen.

    • Chef Ramsay: Christina had the least amount of experience coming into Hell's Kitchen. But I saw something in her that was quite special.

    • Narrator: It's the final night in Hell's Kitchen and over two hours into dinner service, Christina's kitchen is at a standstill.
      Chef Ramsay: Matt, this monkfish is not cooked.
      Narrator: And Chef Ramsay is ready to take matters into his own hands.

    • Christina: (in an interview segment) I tell you, working with Matt, though, is like really frustrating. No offense, but salad is easy.
      Chef Ramsay: Come on, Matt! This is not our first night's service, is it?

    • Bobby: (in an interview segment) Petrozza, he definitely went for an impressive menu. It's a problem executing that stuff, but I'm gonna keep cool and I'm just gonna cook my ass off.

    • Chef Ramsay: (to Christina) You go that extra mile. It's not about playing safe. It's about really pushing the boundaries out.

    • Ben: (in an interview segment) Jen has been in a bitchy mood. She wants to be in the winner's circle, but she's not. I'm sorry, Jen. You just-- you just didn't make it. Get over it.

    • Narrator: With Petrozza out of the kitchen, Jen puts her energy into prepping...

    • Jen: (in an interview segment) Being a prep chef for Petrozza is like people playing the violin when the Titanic was going down. That's how I feel right now.

    • Christina: (in an interview segment) When Matt's on, he's on. And when Matt goes down, he goes down hard. But with a little bit of encouragement, I think he'll shine... hopefully.

    • Jen: (in an interview segment) I definitely know that the reason I was picked second to last is because how strong of a leader I am and they don't want to be outshined by me in their kitchen, but that's going to happen anyway.

    • Petrozza: (On his view of Chef Ramsay) He's phenomenal. Not only does he give you advice, but he tells you why.

    • Ben: How long on that risotto, Sweetheart?
      Jen: My name is Jen, not 'Sweetheart', and it is a minute and a half.

    • Christina: (in an interview) Jen pulled Chef Ramsay aside and asked for a recommendation, which I think is just shameless.
