  1. It was Colleen, the cooking teacher. The teams nominated Andrea and J but Ramsey put them back in line and chose Colleen instead.

          I know I'll get booed for this, but I'll miss her.

            You just liked seeing her doing the cheerleading. :-)

            1. re: LindaWhit

              No, actually that part did make me hate her a bit.
              IT just seemed like she had Ramsey up her ass non stop the whole time she was there (not saying she didn't deserve it, but it could have been spread out a bit) and she took it like a trooper. No crying temper tantrums.

                I guess the raw dessert last night was the last straw for him?

                1. re: Firegoat

                  Well, he *did* compliment her last night while booting her off. Said her "stamina" (or something like that) was something the others could all aspire to.

                  Except after being on 5 different stations and failing at all of them, it was time for her to go.

                  1. re: LindaWhit

                    I know I know.... my bf hates her too. I just kind of liked her pluckiness and maturity. (okay, okay... not so mature with the cheerleading stuff....) sigh.

                    1. re: Firegoat

                      There's always a juvenile adult or two on HK - she just happened to be one of them (along with Seth & Lacey) this season.

                      I have to say - I was floored at Lacey barking out orders on the Blue team. She actually seemed like she knew what she was doing. But the guys definitely did not want to deal with her at first! So what's the problem? She doesn't like working with women?

                      1. re: LindaWhit

                        Well women see her as just another pretty face who can cook.....

                        1. re: LindaWhit

                          All bark and no bite? All she can do is call out orders.....what good is that?

                          1. re: Ericandblueboy

                            Not good at all. I was just surprised she "took control" in the Blue kitchen, as she was a complete Eff-up in the Red kitchen and couldn't manage to do anything, much less manage others on the line.

                            And she wasn't calling out the orders - Ramsay does that. She was figuring out the timing that everyone else was on to get everything up to the pass at the proper time.

                            1. re: LindaWhit

                              Thought Lacey stepped up. I suspect that she can't be her most effective when she feels hate coming from her colleagues. Once she connected via origami, she was part of the team which gave her a safe place to become a contributing member.

          2. Same thing happened to us. American Idol overran its time slot.

            1. In a risotto recipe printed in the Times Online, Gordon Ramsay
              explains how they do some advance preparation on the rice used in
              risotto at his restaurants. This must be the method used on Hell's Kitchen
              to prepare risotto so fast:

              "When you cook risotto at home you can do the whole thing in one go
              because you have plenty of time to stir it - in my restaurants we have
              to blanch the rice first and then bring it all together later on. It’s
              a nice way of speeding up the process - the rice just goes back into
              the pan with the stock and quickly starts to become workable......"


              1. TFF Throw me in the group that came to find out who got the axe because I didn't set the DVR correctly.

                1. My old school VCR also cut off the end.
