Last week on Hell’s Kitchen on Fox, we watched as Jennifer, who most of us thought would be in the finale, say goodbye. This week, the final four return for one last shot at impressing Gordon Ramsay enough to put them in the finale. With two hours of fun tomorrow, we can’t help but wonder who will be crowned the season nine winner!
Hell’s Kitchen returns tomorrow with 2 hours of fun, in 2 back-to-back episodes, one of which will be the season nine finale. Which one of the final four will be crowned? We can only hope it is not Elise. Fox is not giving us too many details, as they only stated: “The biggest test comes at dinner service, when Chef Ramsay judges the finalists’ leadership skills as each chef demonstrates how they would run a kitchen. The two chefs who survive this dramatic dinner service will lay it all on the line to prove to Chef Ramsay that they deserve the life-changing grand prize – a head chef position at the legendary BLT Steak in New York City.”
While we have no idea what will go down in tomorrow’s finale, Fox did give us some insight into our final four contestants, as each one revealed their favorite moment in Hell’s Kitchen, as well as what they learned from Gordon Ramsay. Below you will find some fun facts about the final four!
Favorite Challenge So Far: The Ugly Foods Challenge
Favorite Reward: When the Red Team won and went to Vegas for the night, even though I didn’t get to go, the dorm was quiet for once.
Least Favorite Punishment: Peeling Grapes
Favorite Moment in HELL’S KITCHEN: “The VIP charity dinner that we did for the American Humane Association and the American Cancer Society. One of my fellow chefs and best friends, John Lucente, unfortunately lost his battle with cancer and I have a rescue dog, so this dinner meant so much to me.”
What Chef Ramsay Taught Me: “It’s hard to narrow this down to only one thing, but if I have to choose, it would be to never stop fighting. The second you stop fighting for what you want, is the second you will go down in a ball of flames.”
Favorite Challenge So Far: Salmon Challenge
Favorite Reward: Helicopter Ride with Chef Ramsay
Least Favorite Punishment: Doing Laundry
Favorite Moment in Hell’s Kitchen: “My favorite moment was when Chef Ramsay said to me, ‘Welcome back Paul.’ It just was a reassuring moment that I was on my way to greatness.”
What Chef Ramsay Taught Me: “The biggest thing that Chef Ramsay taught me was, not to be afraid to make mistakes. He told me, ‘I’ve made more mistakes than you can even imagine and it’s not what you did, it’s what you do to fix it.’”
Favorite Challenge So Far: The Beer Challenge
Favorite Reward: The Sprint Cars
Least Favorite Punishment: Peeling Grapes
Favorite Moment in Hell’s Kitchen: “When I cooked my signature dish and my first compliment from Chef Ramsay was, ‘There’s finesse on the plate.’”
What Chef Ramsay Taught Me: “I learned too much from Gordon to actually list here, he’s a great chef and a pleasure to work with.”
Favorite Challenge So Far: The Palate Challenge
Favorite Reward: Vegas!
Least Favorite Punishment: Delivery Day
Favorite Moment in Hell’s Kitchen: “My favorite moment would have to be the night that I held it down on the meat station. I was in rare form that night and felt that I finally had the brigade system down. Chef Ramsay let me know how impressed he was with me and it was a great moment for me as a chef.”
What Chef Ramsay Taught Me: “Chef Ramsay taught me to never give up and to strive for perfection in everything I do. He taught me discipline and, most importantly, to own up to your mistakes, and learn from them. Chef Ramsay is a great chef, a wonderful person, and he has changed my life forever.”
Who are you rooting for tomorrow? Be sure to tune to find out who takes the season nine crown!
