Separate names with a comma.

Is that with it hard or soft? There is a difference.
Yeah, speaking of fake, you may enjoy what I spotted right off the bat.
I watched ep02 last night, shortly after it recorded. Worried a bit - I totally fell asleep and it wasn't that late.
He did ax the right guy, although there are a couple others I'd like to see gone really soon. That guy wouldn't last another week there anyway.
As soon as the women said Barbie caused too much drama, it is clear Gordon won't send her home. He loves keeping people around that stir the pot, so to speak.
This whole group are nothing but clowns though. Can any of them cook? Two hours into dinner service and you can't get a plate out? Crazy.
Many of them can cook, Barbie made excellent scallops in the prize competition. It's just in service when the pressure ramps up that they cave. In this comp, being steady is about the best attribute to have instead of a balls-out great chef.
But if they just professionally prepared and served the dishes, it wouldn't be good television.
And if you eat at Hell's Kitchen, don't order the scallops, risotto or Wellington if you're hungry. In fact, in the first couple of shows, stop for pizza before you go.
Don't even go until you see a brigate wearing black chef's jackets.
Otherwise, don't show up hungry!
Virginia Dalbeck from season 2 has a calendar:
And where exactly is this Hell's Kitchen? OTH, if you do get to eat there, you must have your SAG card.
From what I've heard, it's just a studio that they have turned into a "restaurant" in Culver City. I think you can get tickets to it like you would the taping of any other television show.
Here's a link I found that explains it.
When tickets are available, there will be a link at the bottom of the official Fox Broadcasting website for Hell's Kitchen, labeled "Reservations." You can request tickets through this link when it appears.You'll be required to choose the date you'd like to attend, and confirm how many guests are in your party. There is a limit to the number of tickets you can book, so make sure you read all of the accompanying details carefully
Originally, it was open only to actors (and, reportedly, in some cases there was a separate catering service available - apparently, you weren't necessarily expected to eat the food), but, presumably, the show became so popular that more and more people kept asking Fox how they could get "reservations" to be one of the diners, and they changed it. The only problem is, you have to know in advance when the tapings take place - it's not like American Idol or So You Think You Can Dance?, where they take place either live or the day before they air.
Barbie was so wrong for waking everybody up at 5 am. After that, I would make it a point to wake her ass up everytime she was asleep and I wasn't.
I find that I continue to not give one whit about ANY of these 'chefs'. I do, however, have a few I'd like to see gone, the sooner the better.
Why do they cast such a high percentage of classless people on this show?
I know they think it makes for good TV, but as much as I enjoy hearing Gordon rant and rave the behavior of some of these chefs has about turned me off the show. It's like the casting people prowl the back alleys behind the dumpiest dives they can find and grab whatever trashy person they find smoking amongst the garbage.
I can't believe they were having such a hard time with the salad. All of the ingredients were sitting in little containers, and all they had to do was assemble it. They didn't even have to cook it. They could have set up an assembly line and knocked out all of the salads in a few minutes. But noooo.
I don't know why I watch this. Every year I say I'm not going to.
Obviously, capable chefs are content with their jobs and don't apply to appear on this show.
Either that, or the producers pick and choose who they feel would make for good TV.
The formula is simple. Get three or so chefs who have a chance to win. Fill the rest of the slots with people for Ramsey to yell at and who can create drama. That's it. That's the entire show.
It doesn't matter who wins or loses or who gets nominated because he always is going to send home who he wants. First those that are completely incompotent and create no drama, then those who are boring, then those who are incompetent but who are dramatic, then you have the few that have talent competing for the prize. It hasn't changed much at all since season 1.
How dare you help me with my station..what would that say of me as a chef?
