On the premiere of Hell’s Kitchen, Chef Gordon Ramsay introduced the
show by promising to turn over a new leaf where he wouldn’t yell and
cuss. Fortunately, he revealed that he was just kidding. Chef Ramsay
wasted no time in both yelling and cussing at the aspiring chefs,
directing them to immediately get in the kitchen and start cooking
their signature dishes.
Chef Ramsay didn’t like the signature dishes of Vinnie, Joanna, Rock, Josh, Bonnie, Eddie, Brad, Jen, Julia, and Aaron. Chef Ramsay paid compliments to only two chefs. He told Melissa, “Finally, I’ve tasted something delicious,” and he told Tiffany, “I think the seafoods cooked perfectly.”
Chef Ramsay divided the aspiring chefs into teams of men (blue team) and women (red team). Before opening the restaurant for dinner service, Chef Ramsay tried to give the teams a pep talk, but Julia said there was no communication going on in the kitchen and Aaron broke down into tears.
In the red kitchen, the team struggled over cooking eggs. In the blue kitchen, Aaron got stressed and left to take a break. Chef Ramsay selected the red team as the losing team. Chef Ramsay also selected Melissa as the best of the worst and asked her to nominate two of her teammates for elimination.
Melissa nominated Joanna because of the way she went about communicating with her and Tiffany because of how long the appetizers took to get out. Chef Ramsay picked Tiffany to leave Hell’s Kitcen. Tiffany said “I had no idea it was going to be this intense. I don’t want to go home, nobody wants to go home, but if he was choosing people on heart he absolutely made the right decision tonight.”
