It looks like it will be an explosive season for Hell’s Kitchen season 10 in 2012. Certainly it was an episode filled with drama. There were 16 chefs:
It was a shocking opening, with the chefs being told that they had to shave their heads to continue. At the last minute, Gordon Ramsay came in to save the day and the chefs hair. It was just a fake gag meant to get people talking. It worked. The whole episode was a spectacle.
I think the people to watch on the Red girls team are Robyn, Barbie, and Kimmie. Unfortunately I don’t think there are any standout male chefs yet. In fact, they were horrible this episode.
First up was the chefs showing their signature dish. Each team went head to head and the side with the most wins was safe from elimination. Some people made great dishes like Robyn Almodovar. She is my woman to beat.
Guy Vaknin presented Gordon Ramsay a dish that was burnt. He made his meal and ruined the sauce so badly that he told Ramsay that he shouldn’t even taste it. His chocolate miso decorations were a disgusting miss too.
Clemenza Caserta surprised everyone by coughing up a lung. On twitter, Gordon Ramsay commented that Clemenza has asthma, but it was very concerning watching him cough like that.
The next phase of the competition was working in the restaurant. Roshni had major problems with her scallops and Gordon kicked her out. I had serious hopes for her. She’s short and cute, but if she can cook then watch out. Give her some seafood lessons stat!
The boys faired worse with the scallops than the mess Roshni Gurnani served. Tavon Hubbard massacring their scallops. He was in charge of cutting them and literally butchered the meat.
In the end both kitchens were shut down after appetizers, but at least the women got some food out. The boys were on the bottom and Tavon Hubbard was sent home. He deserved to go. Gordon Ramsay called him a “dishwasher”, not a chef. Harsh but true!
