Hell's Kitchen: And then there were 5


Well kids it is Tuesday.

And that means we're down to 5 people on Satan's favorite cooking show Hell's Kitchen.

Last week Fran Dresher Melissa was kicked off evening everything up to 3 guys and 3 gals.

The challenge was actually kind of cool. The red team (XXs) and the blue team (XYs) had to use left over items to come up with something unique in 30 minutes. The guys came up with all kinds of crazy shit but the girls, after wasting 20 minutes arguing about it, ended up with some of the most mundane shit they possible could have done.

I think this is the first time the guys actually won a challenge which resulted in them going to a paint ball place to shot at Ramsay. What's funny is that Ramsay totally kicked all three of their asses in paintball. I just don't get that.

The night's service focused on each team having to come up with their own menus. Bonnie tried to dominate the girl's menu, ignoring Julia's request to do a good steak because "steak is a restaurant cop-out".

When presenting the menus, Ramsay asked Julia what she contributed and she said nothing. When asked what she'd put on the menu, she mentioned the steak and Ramsay, much to Bonnie's chagrin, said change the menu to include the steak!

Brad totally dominated the guy's menu and while it seemed to be ok, once service started it took a long time for diners to be interested in it.

The highlight of the evening?

Julia totally owning the night when the steak became the most ordered and most popular item available. It didn't hurt that not a single one was ever returned.

As usual, Josh f'd up a ton of lamb and Ramsay went off on his ass all night.

Surprisingly, even though the chicks couldn't communicate or cooperate, they managed to get out all tickets. Same with the guys.

Ramsay acknowledged my favorite Julia, the Waffle House cook, for suggesting the steak and pretty much applauded her.

During elimination, it got hot and heavy with Brad thinly attacking Rock who surprisingly, and very openly, called him out on it.

Brad got the shaft though.

I so want Rock to be kicked off. He annoys the shit out of me.

Maybe next week.

I want it to come down to Julia versus Jen at the final.

A Waffle House cook and a pastry chef would a helluva lot better than executive chefs and crap.

In other news, I'm renaming my band The Trembling Glue-Sniffing Teenagers. Our first single will hopefully be up on iTunes sometime next month.

Hell's Kitchen: Episode 4


Well kiddos it is that time of the week again where Groovy Nala stops talking TFs and shoots the shit about the awesomeness that is Hell's Kitchen!

This episode''s challenge was all about a taste test. All pretty simple stuff like american cheese, boiled carrots, hard-boiled egg yolk, pear, lobster and such. The only two I think I'd probably have problems with was the bok choy and the venison. I imagine the texture would help to determine things like the pear and egg yolk but some of the people didn't get these.

For the fourth week in a row the guys lost the challenge and had to not only kitchen prep for both teams, they had to sample tripe, kidneys, herring, tongues, pigs feet, liver, and a few other things to "improve" their familiarity with certain tastes.

The girls were taken to eat at a restaurant called Opaque where you eat in the dark. Um... I just don't get how that could be pleasant. I'm also not into gimmicks at all.

As things go, the dinner service was pretty much the usual disaster.

I just do not see how these people miss getting into a groove of cooking the same items all the time. You'd think it would improve every episode but it doesn't. And the women have actually gotten worse!

By the end, Ramsey had Rock and Jen pick the two choices to go but they went with competitors instead of people who failed during dinner service. In a rare override of their choices, Ramsey ended up picking the two who were in fact the worst and kicked off Vinnie just like I called it last week!

Hell's Kitchen: Episode 3

And then 2 more were gone!

Yup! This week's Hell's Kitchen saw the elimination of the standard weekly person in the form of Joanna and also the elimination by "illness" of Aaron, the retarded guy who seems to have been included on the show so they could generate drama about how retarded he is. Guess they got that.

So we started out the episode with a challenge what was totally crafted for Waffle House cook Julia to shine: Breakfast for 100 Army and Navy staff!

Even though they've been bad mouthing her "short order cook" skills for the past 2 episodes, the women basically let Julia take charge and she totally pwned everybody, including the men!

The guys were totally f'd up from the moment they started and proceeded to mess up breakfast bigtime.

After Julia and the women sucessfully got all the Army people served Ramsey ordered Julia to go to the guys' side and take charge. She did and got all of the Navy breakfasts served too!

It was really nice to be able to see her shine and I honestly hope she makes it through to the very end.

The actually dinner service though was totally screwed up for both groups and there was nothing positive to come out of it.

Joanna served rancid spoiled crab in the spaghetti which pretty much guaranteed her dismissal.

Jen's ass was saved by Julia when Jen tried to pull spaghetti out of the trash and reserve it to customers. Jen at least had the balls (or is that ovaries?) to stand up at the end and say she deserved to get kicked off.

Aaron, r-tard, passed out and was rushed to the hospital. We never did find out what was really wrong with him but he joined Season 2's Larry in the slot of losers who were eliminated via being sent to the hospital.

Next Episode: Annoying Vinnie gets kicked off. I'm definitely feeling that vibe!

Hell's Kitchen: Episode 2


Well last night's episode of Hell's Kitchen didn't exactly go as I thought it would.

The guys totally f'd up the entire night and in a shocking event for this show this early on, the women not only got all of their orders out but also had to do the remaining guy's orders after Ramsey kicked all the men out of the kitchen since they kept screwing up.

I really really really cannot believe that Aaron has survived.

He's obviously out of his league here and if he's not hypoclycemic or diabetic he sure will be by the time he gets kicked off.

So it came down to Rock picking Josh and Eddie to get kicked off.

Josh is too good of a cook and just had a bad night so off Eddie went. And if I'm not mistaken he was kicked off with an expletive that made no sense in the context of the moment.

The one thing that really pissed me off is the way Fox creates the trailers for this show. They are so fully of bullshit gimmick to keep you watching that the events shown in the preview trailer don't necessarily happen in the next episode.

That's fraud in my book. Sure it is just mindless idiot box programming but one should never have to use any kind of fraud to entice potential viewers. The show needs to stand on its own merit.
