Tonight on FOX is a brand new episode of the hit cooking competition Hell’s Kitchen. On tonight’s show, the five remaining chefs compete for the chance to be the top chef in one of Chef Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants. On last week’s show, the chef passed out the coveted black jackets and no one was eliminated from the competition. Have you been keeping up with the show? If not, you can read the recap here.
Left in the competition are Jon, Cyndi, Ja’nel, Mary and Susan. From the official synopsis:
The challenges don’t stop now that the chefs have received their black jackets, as Chef Ramsay surprises them by bringing back a team of previous HELL’S KITCHEN winners to challenge them at dinner service. Ramsay lets the teams design their own menus for dinner service and the finalists will go head-to-head with the returning champs. Tune in to see if this season’s competitors can take the heat.
Stay tuned for our live recap of the show at 8PM. Until then, tell us who you’re rooting for to win this season of Hell’s Kitchen!
Rock from season three is coming back to compete against this season’s chefs. Also joining him is Christina from season four. Dave from season six is also returning to compete. Nona and Paul are also competing tonight.
Gordon wants them to add an appetizer and an entree to the menu. The group is a bit frazzled over competing against the “dream team”.
Susan wants to be on the meat station, but Cyndi disagrees. We’re of the mind that Susan isn’t exactly the best person on meat and should probably float instead.
The competitors have prepared steak tar tar, chalits with a vinaigrette sauce and the entree is missing the main portion. The champions have prepared rendered duck breast and toasted pistachios and the main dish is meat with collared greens.
On the side with the competitors, Susan seemed to drop the ball on making everyone wait for the capellini. The black jacket team finished before the champions with the exception of one lamb that was undercooked. Cyndi messed up the lamb again.
Ninety-five percent of the diners who ate in the champion’s section said that they would return to the restaurant based on this dining experience, while the current chefs had 93 percent. Chef Ramsay asked the current chefs to nominate two chefs for elimination. They nominated Susan and Cyndi as their two weakest chefs. Gordon’s decision is for Susan and Cyndi to get back in line with their black jackets. What?!?
