You would think people would not want to look like an A**hole on national TV.
Clemenza didn't get the memo!
I laughed when he was surprised that no-one wanted to pick him and then he sits and yawns his way through the meeting!
I don't know if he actually did walk out, but he was noticeably absent from the shots of next week. However, that COULD be careful editing!
It was very careful editing, although not careful enough. I saw his profile in one of the shots.
I kind of guessed that this was the case.
Ramsey also had to needle him about being picked last.
I would have preferred Dana vs Christina.
I'm sure he's plenty used to being picked last...you know for sports and stuff.
I wondered if there was going to end up being a 'Christina vs Dana' scenario.
LMAO at the Clemenza drama. good grief! That guy makes me want to puke. I hope he DID walk out but you just KNOW he'll be back.
Patrick was booted 2 weeks before Tiffany, maybe she didn't want to come back to cook. Regardless of the reason I'm glad, I can't stand her. ETA, maybe they need to make it 4/4 men/women that come back
The winner won me over. I ended up rooting for that person and was glad they won.
No complaints. I wouldn't have had any had it gone the other way.
Going into last night, I thought Christina was a better cook, but that Justin could run a kitchen a bit better.
Both of those gaps closed a bit for me watching the finale. I could see either one winning.
Which may be one of the reasons why she won - Kevin Hee "runs the kitchen" at Gordon Ramsay Steakhouse; who knows what Christina's job duties will be. "Head Chef" is just a title.
I doubt any of the winners have actually put a year in at whatever restaurant was featured that season.
I think at least one of the other two Vegas winners (Red Rock and Green Valley) did. Note that neither one of those is exactly near the Las Vegas Strip, unlike this year's prize, which is on it.
I know one - the one who got the job in London - wasn't allowed to work there at all; "the version I heard was," sometime between when they announced the prize and when they announced who the winner was, the British Parliament passed a law modifying the rules for foreigners getting a work visa needed to work in the UK, and one of the new rules is along the lines of, "Unless it's for some sort of entertainment purposes, you cannot enter the UK to work in a position that can be filled by a UK citizen."
I didn't have a major preference between these two but, in the end, I was surprised he didn't choose Justin. I felt like his cooking was every bit as good, although he was stuck with that albatross and that other, doofus, guy, and his leadership skills were better too. (except somebody just needed to tell him to stop saying 'We're dying here'.
Here is an article about Paul Niedermann who won last year and worked for a year at STK in New York.
From the little bit of research I did it's not surprising that the winners are "demoted" and aren't actually the executive chef at the restaurant. I don't think anyone who watches this show thinks they could actually run a top notch kitchen. Looks like a couple of them have quit before their year was up. The "real" executive chef is probably glad to get him/her out of his hair.
Here's some info from a Ramsay interview a couple of years ago
Here is some info on the past winners. It was posted last year, but there are a couple of updates in the comments section.
