Hell's Kitchen U.S. (2008)


Recommended Posts

I was really hoping that Petrozza or Christina would have had the balls to tell Matt and Jen to get the  fuck out of their kitchen.

OMG - I was hopin' and prayin' for that, too. Someone should have asked me

to do it . . . it would have made my day.

Well, nowhere at the homepage of "Gordon Ramsay at the London, West Hollywood" is there any mention of Christina.

Not that I'm surprised. You aren't going to install a culinary student in any sort of leading position when you have a critical restaurant opening.

Whatever became of Heather, season 1 winner? I bet Christina came back to NY and wrapped up her training at the CIA, and is probably stashed away somewhere, right now, training and working in a Ramsay restaurant. Believe me, GR Holdings has now invested heavily in her, so they'll give her as much hands-on as they can. If you notice from last week's episode, "Sarge", who was once a sous chef at GR's Hospital Road restuarant (I believe) when they shot Boiling Point (1995), is the exec chef at another of Gordo's restos. So Christina will resurface.

I'm not doubting that they will offer her some sort of position and she will of course get the money, but the whole "executive chef at my new restaurant" spiel never sounded very likely.

Mark Sargeant has worked for Ramsay forever and if you are good enough to survive that, of course GRH will take care of you.

Yes, it would have scored points in the "take charge of your brigade" category.

My theory on why this didn't happen: They were explicitly forbidden by the producers to kick out Jen and Matt. It makes for more exciting (Fox-style) TV to be forced to deal with them. It allows the producers to edit over three hours of footage into twenty minutes(?) of compelling (Fox-style) strife. Where's the entertainment value in shiny happy people all getting along? :wink:

While I was in DC last week, I read that Rock will be opening a restaurant next to Ben's Chili Bowl. He is hoping to have it open for the inauguration.

The "Hell's Kitchen" winner and Alexandria native is leaving Las Vegas after his one-year victory stint as head chef at Terra Verde at the Green Valley Ranch Resort. "The new atmosphere here, the inauguration and working with a powerhouse food provider in D.C. -- it was a no-brainer," Harper, 32, said.
