      amen to that. although she did have the best quote of the night...

      "petrozza's dish looks like a heart attack dipped in a stroke with a side of cardiac arrest."

      1. re: goodhealthgourmet

        Completely agree on *finally* getting rid of her. But her line was good. However, *all* of the sandwiches would have been better than her lunch, IMO.

        Jen was a complete beeyotch during dinner service - I was glad that GR finally saw her *not* communicating with others. And atta-boy for Petrozza for finally speaking to Christina after she came back from her shopping trip. Both Corey and Jen just completely ignoring her? Paleez.

        And what's up with Corey not being able to finish her sandwiches? Sheesh - Petrozza had the most difficult put-together, and he got all of his done!

        And it looks like it gets nasty next week. What a surprise.

    2. I second that, ditto it and applaud it.

      I have never seen a more unpleasant, sneaky and dishonest cook in a kitchen on TV. She deserves to be gone.

      And hey, I am totally impressed by Petrozza. Starting to think that he has the chops to win. He's mature, can cook and heck, he's got passion. But what's with the elastics on the fingers???

      I can't wait for next week. It looks great.

        The elastics on his fingers were probably to keep those sandwiches from slipping and falling apart without mashing them to oblivion when he was doing the egg wash. If I'm right, I think it's a pretty nifty little trick.

        1. re: weezycom

          It's not the first time he's been wearing them - I think it's pretty standard for him. I am very curious why he does it.

      2. Christina seems to be this season's Virginia/Bonnie. I sure hope Petrozza and Corey are the finalists.

          You know, I was hoping it would be Corey/Christina since they've been working that angle since the beginning - but now I've really really gotten to like Petrozza.

          How could GR let half cooked fish go out? How could Corey send it up knowing it wasn't cooked - does she not realize that a customer is going to cut into it and see that it's raw???

          I think JP needs a bigger role in the next HK - he gives it a certain je ne sais quoi. I mean slamming into the door last week, priceless. His pathetic flirting with the modes - adorable. But we could all go to zee beech!

          1. re: maisonbistro

            Agreed on JP. When we finally get to see him let loose, he's pretty amusing. Then all business in the restaurant. "Push zee feesh!" "No, no, zee beef - push zee beef!"

            1. re: phee

              JP must have been mighty sad. No multitudes of fake breasts to drool over tonight, unlike the previous episode.

              Am mighty glad to see Jen gone. A hustler, con artist, unaccountable, blaming others for her failures, and never a team player. Telling the others near the end that she has "found her heart" when in reality it was just her fear of getting booted, trying to manipulate them into believing she actually cares about anyone but herself. And her ridiculous over-the-top plea to stay, citing how this is her last and only hope to reach her dream. Boo hoo. This isn't charity. It's to find the best qualified "chef". I've worked for people like her: truly the bosses from hell.

        2. I KNOW! FINALLY! This week her sneakiness surpassed her bitchiness. And did anyone else nearly keel over when he said "Corey" - two, three, four - "say goodbye to Jen"? WHEW!

          1. Fake, fake, fake. GR burns his hand on a hot saucepan handle, not once, but twice. He grimaces, goes to the faucet to wash it off. Jen cackles about how she can smell burnt flesh across the kitchen. Oh my. Then, a minute later, GR is shown turning around and clapping his hands together over something! Must be a really fast healer.

            Next week's challenge: In 20 minutes, which of the cheftestants can smoke the most butts.

              umm... work in a kitchen much? Run cold water on it - get back on the line. That's just SOP. Your hand is red for a while - big deal. That steam coming off the handle when water was poured on was for real. And you'd better not whine... although you're spending the rest of the night thinking about how to get back on the guy that passed it to you - twice!
