Hell's Kitchen - July 30th - Spoilers

I couldn't believe when Ramsey let Jen go. I think Rock is the best of the mediocre group, and he is going to win the competition. I am sort of disappointed on the poor selection of contestants overall this season (except Julia - she was my favourite).

  1. I agree. I was in shock when Ramsey said "Rock, I'm going to have to ask you to go... to the finale." What a 3 second roller coaster ride that must have been for him! I hope he makes it.

    1. I think Rock is a shoe in and they had to let Jen go because Bonnie will provide more drama for the last show.

      1. re: free sample addict aka Tracy L

        Agreed. Still would have liked seeing Rock and Julia in the finale.

      2. It was especially surprising that he would let Jen go after her big, unanimous win in the mommy contest. Her fried chicken roulades looked great. Surely her not noticing that the pasta dish was missing the crab meat wasn't enough to outweigh her culinary skills in the contest. Well, at least she has the $1,000 worth of kitchen supplies.

        1. The same thing happened last year there was (I forget her name) a finalist who had no business being there. I think they do it so there will be some kind of consensus on the winner.

            Yup - that was Virginia. Seemingly no contest against Heather. I was thinking about that after Jen was sent packing - same type of finale set-up for HK3.

            1. re: Withnail42

              This was exactly my thought. He's already picked who he wants to win (Rock) and wants to make it an easy decision after the final.

            2. An amateur mistake by Jen cost her last night. Pretty bad when you try to send out a dish without one of its main ingredients.

              With the above said she was at a slight disadvantage being the first one to be sending out dishes, so the next two perhaps knew they might see some trickery as well..

              Bonnie is terrible, and she could have never worked in any of the kitchens I have worked in back in the day. She is disorganized, not that good of a cook at all, and cries on the line. The crying on the line being totally unacceptable, how can she expect to get the respect of her coworkers/employees? She should stick to babysitting, and cooking grilled cheese for the kids she watches.

              Rock is the superior line cook in this show, and note I said line cook because he may hold the title of chef where he works, but he isnt a chef in my eyes. Jen, another decent line cook, but with a terrible attitude, and not a team player from what I saw of the show.
