Last week on Hell’s Kitchen on Fox, we watched as some veterans returned and the current chefs shocked us by beating them. This week, it’s a battle of the salmon that determined the final four, but if you think you know who went home, you may be in for a shocker! Read on for more…
Hell’s Kitchen returned tonight and the chefs were on a high after last week’s stellar performance, but could they keep it up? In the dorm, they were all mocking Jennifer for professing her true feelings about Paul in last week’s episode. But then it was back to business as they were called in for their challenge. In this week’s challenge, the chefs were presented with a rare white salmon, which Gordon Ramsay asked them each to create a profitable dish out of, as the salmon was very expensive. All the chefs put in what appeared to be a good effort to create a profitable salmon dish, but Jennifer seemed to take her time deciding what to make.
Gordon Ramsay had three guest judges come in, and tell the chefs what they would pay for each dish – the most profitable would obviously win the challenge. Most of the dishes went over well with the judges, except for Elise’s as they could not figure out why she would pair salmon with macaroni and cheese, nor did they think her dish looked good. Despite Jennifer’s delay in creating her salmon dish, it seemed to have paid off as she came in 2nd place to Paul, who ended up winning the challenge. For his reward, Paul was getting a helicopter ride with Gordon Ramsay over L.A., which also including dinning! Paul decided to take Tommy with him, much to Jennifer’s dismay.
Last week’s dinner service on Hell’s Kitchen was a dream compared to the nightmare that took place tonight. Tommy and Jennifer could not get the communication going at all, and the appetizers were severely delayed because of this. When the appetizers finally did start to roll out, Elise began to screw up the salmon. Despite numerous attempts by Paul and Gordon Ramsay explaining to her that she needed to cook it skin side down, Elise continued to cook the salmon on the skinless side. Finally, she said she would cook it on the correct side, but when she sent it up, it was raw in the center.
The lack of communication and poorly cooked food sent Gordon Ramsay on a rampage tonight as he asked all five chefs to get out of the kitchen. But quickly after they left, Gordon asked sous chef Andy to go back up and get Paul and Will, who would help him complete dinner service. Paul and Will rocked out dinner service with Gordon Ramsay while the other three sat in the dorm until Gordon Ramsay brought them back down after service. After telling them to choose two members for elimination, Tommy argued with Gordon Ramsay about why he was sent away. When Gordon threatened to put Tommy’s head on a grill, Tommy challenged Gordon Ramsay to do it, and Gordon Ramsay told him to get lost and not rub anymore salt in the wound.
Gutsy move by Tommy, but would it get him eliminated? In the dorm, Elise begged both Will and Paul to tell Gordon Ramsay that she was the better chef out of herself and Jennifer. When it was time for elimination, it was no shocker that Elise and Jennifer were up for elimination. When Gordon asked who the better chef was, both Will and Paul said Elise was, while Tommy said Jennifer was. Oddly enough, we have seen Jennifer cook better time after time than Elise, so for the viewers, this question was a no brainer. In any event, Gordon Ramsay was torn between the loud mouth and the girl with no voice. After deliberating and pleading their cases, it was Jennifer who was sent packing tonight, which was a shocker to us!
Next week is the 2 hour season finale of Hell’s Kitchen on Fox, so be sure to tune to find out who takes the season nine crown!
