I don’t usually blog this show but I thought I would throw one up and see if y’all are interested. So far this season I have been less than impressed with the chefs this season. They seem dumber than usual and I don’t have any favorites so far.
As usual, on every reality show, the women are bickering and the men are inept. Neither team has managed to complete a service, and much swearing from Gordon Ramsey has occurred in both kitchens.
The women win the challenge (making potato side dishes) and go on a fabulous sailboat to watch the dolphins.
The women have someone who appears to be certifiably crazy on their team, Simone. Simone appears to be hallucinating. Another team member is physically quite ill. One of the guys cut his finger pretty bad on the mandolin. They are all going in at less than 100%
Joy and Anton are strong competitors. Both doing risotto. Both get high marks from Ramsey. Simone’s lobster tails are raw. She doesn’t seem to even know she is in a kitchen at all. Seriously, she is waaaay out there. She is working the fish station with Jessica and getting Jessica’s ass chewed too. Why are scallops so hard for them to cook? The fish station is a problem for Chris and Mike in the blue kitchen as well.
Ramsey throws Jessica and Simone out of the red kitchen. Then he threw the entire blue team out. Then the remainder of the red team is thrown out for undercooked meat. Ramsey is pissed. Three services in a row that were not completed. He says he is cutting a lot of people and he wants three nominations instead of two from each team.
The girls quickly agree on Simone, who they have continued to try to get out. And Rochelle, the sick one, and one of their better chefs, Sandra, “because of her attitude.” Hell anyone one would have an attitude working in that hot mess of a kitchen.
The guys put up, Mike (they think he is their weakest link) Demarco (finger chopping guy) and Chris (bad fish station).
Demarco, Mike and Simone are called down and stripped of their jackets. He gives them all ten seconds to plead their case. Crazyass Simone goes first and talks in a tiny baby voice. Mike can barely get a straight sentence out because he is dumb. Demarco makes a reasonable attempt. Ramsey says MY DECISION IS… and the little baby voice interrupts and says, “It’s okay Chef, I can go!” And everyone looks at her like she is crazy because, well, her lunch pail is missing the sandwich. So he tosses her. Then he gives Mike and Demarco their jackets back.
Next week: The women do much better without Simone. The men get very jealous of the women. One guy’s anger may cause his to get physical with a female chef or two.
