    ROFLMAO. The guy who had never cooked Wellington before cooks them beautifully and one or two of the guys couldn't even cook mashed potatoes. haha. I'd start to get a little angry too.

    Isn't it logical that if you were going to be a contestant on this show you would figure out how to cook, Scallops, Risotto and the other items commonly on the menu? scratch head.....

    3 stooges in the Chef's table. LOL.

    Look at those POTS and PANS... "Want me to go wash them?" ROFL.

    Good stuff. Just wish Ramsey would call people Donkey again. Wonder why he stopped?

    Wow, first time watching this show and I was stunned. You'd think even a line cook would be able to cook potatos or prepare garnish. Elise needs to go but I guess she just adds drama and that's one of the things they strive for on these shows.

    I though we'd have a whole season thread ;)

    I'm going to wait until this is almost over and have a hells kitchen marathon some weekend.

    It could just be my failing memory, but I do not recall them always starting out with 18 cooks. That was a bit overwhelming. Looks like a lot of screw ups in this bunch, though. That much I can tell already.

    Don't forget the guy who sent up the garnish before they even served the first appetizer. Chino can't cook fish and he should because he's Asian (his words, not mine).

    Last season was awesome for its kitchen wrecking ineptitude. Some good early candidates here too. I rather like Ramsey when he goes apesh*t. His persona on the other shows are take it or leave it for me.

    What's with the contestants having health problems in recent seasons. I wouldn't put it past the producers placing people who would be likely to have an ambulance call but wtf.

    I was surprised they got rid of the guy who went to the hospital for good, must've been something serious.

    This show is always the same. Season after season, it doesn't change a bit. My wife and I even had a bet as to how soon he would spit out somebody's signature dish. She won, I didn't think he would do it on the first one he tasted. We still always watch though...can't explain as to why that is.

    It always shocks me how people don't cook scallops. That is like going on Survivor without knowing how to make a fire.

    Yeah, really! Loving it - get to see BOTH Gordons fortwo days in a row. :D

    But I have a question and I'm not sure it's a spoiler (I guess it entails the first TWO eps of HK) -

    In the promos I kept seeing something about somebody going in the hospital on the first night, but somehow I missed that having watched both Monday AND Tuesday's eps...What happened? Did I black out during one of them? Which one?

    It happened extremely early in the first ep.
    One of the guys had shortness of breath, or something. I just looked up to see him sitting on the floor and a medic bringing oxygen over. He was rushed to the hospital and gone after that.

    Tommy is a bit delusional. No way should he be in a kitchen that involves communication.
