WEEK 1, EPISODE 1

If these were the 16 chefs chosen out of 10,000 applicants, I would hate to see the other 9,984.  I will say, though, that the intro. was really cool.  Chef Ramsay as Gulliver?  It doesn’t get any better than that.

intro

I was interested to see what Ramsay had up his sleeve as a surprise right off the bat.  Last season, he had his wife dress up in a bad wig and pass off as a contestant.  This season, it was kind of boring.  Since the restaurant (LA Market) where the winner will be head chef was a local joint, they went there to meet Ramsay.  The restaurant is gorgeous though.  I almost want to make a trip to LA just to eat there…before one of these goons is head chef.  I value my life.

I know we haven’t put out a Hell’s Kitchen recap yet, hey 2 episodes in one night is a lot of blogging, especially considering Teen Mom, Survivor, and Dancing With The Stars were also on this week, but rest assured, a recap will be up shortly, and written by Mulari so you will get all her witty humor.

Anyway, during the first week, Hell’s Kitchen contestant Antonia Boregman collapsed and appeared to have a type of panic attack / seizure, and honestly how can you blame her after Ramsey absolutely destroyed her signature dish and humiliated her on national tv.  Is that an excuse?  I mean Hell’s Kitchen has been on for a long time, you have to know what to expect when you enter that place.  Ramsey can be downright nasty on that show, especially when it comes to the opening signature dishes, mostly for entertainment purposes.

Well, unlike other people who have left the show for medical reasons, Gordon was very vague about this one and just said she will not be returning.    After much digging, the best I can come up with is that she’s home and doing great, so despite rumors, Antonia Boregman did not die!  Good to hear, and I wish her all the best.  It was probably a smart move to get out early anyway, that show is just brutal on people.

Recaps coming later 🙂  Plenty of good stuff to talk about, so subscribe using one of the options on the top right, or bookmark us!

Hell’s Kitchen season 8 contestants have been announced!  Now I don’t know where the casting people find some of these yahoos, but they never fail to disappoint.  But before I begin the who, what, where, and whys of the new contestants, let me just mention this one issue that has always bugged me about the show.  Almost every contestant smokes.  I have nothing against smokers, but isn’t smoking supposed to kill your taste buds?  You can correct me if I’m wrong, since I’ve never smoked.  It just always seemed weird to me. The prize for the season 8 winner will be a head chef position at LA Market, which is located at JW Marriott Hotel Los Angeles.  They will also be the spokesperson for Rosemount Estate Wines.  I’m guessing the second position is only because they will be going no further than Los Angeles, which, to me, seems a huge disappointment compared to previous seasons.
