Hells Kitchen Season finale tonight - Who is your pick? Spoilers I'm sure. :)

So... we've come down to Holly and Jay. Tonight's finale looks like an UNEXPECTED AND SHOCKING battle, with NEVER BEFORE SEEN drama! lol

who's your money on?

I'm having a hard time choosing... maybe caring? who wins. But... maybe... hmmm

I'd like to see Holly take it just because she's female, even tho I think Jay's a better chef. ;)

  1. jay is too ugly to win. i would have loved if in a triumphant move, he decided his stupid blue hair is too embarassing for the prized position and then dyed it black or something

      My recollection is that the Attractive Female Contestants seem to get surprisingly far on this show*, though I do think Holli has more chops than past AFCs. I do think Jay is a little more skilled and seasoned, as demonstrated by his turn at the pass last week. I think Jay "deserves" it a tiny bit more, but I guess I'm rooting for Holli.

      *it's possible I'm generalizing from the season where the personal chef/nanny, Bonnie, who was very cute, inexplicably made it to the final two. Was that the year Rock won? All the HK seasons tend to swirl together for me.

    2. My prediction is that:

      ELECTRIFYINGLY INSIDEOUS GAFFES by RESENTFUL (and perhaps INCOMPETANT) FORMER CONTESTANTS will lead to the MOST HISTRIONIC FINALE IN HELL"S KITCHEN HISTORY!!

      Since Holly's new olive oil line and upcoming cookbook will obviously take hits if she loses, then maybe I want Jaybird to win. Or not. I really don't care.

        LOL CH! :) Thanks for that prediction!

        1. re: C. Hamster

          By George, I think you've got it. :-)

          And as I've said before - someone posted something on Jason's (open to all) FB page last week that I think *might* reveal who actually wins it.

          1. re: LindaWhit

            Yup - that person who posted on Jay's HK FB page was right! That person said "Good luck bro, but my friend told me about the out come." (posted on Aug. 3rd)

            I kinda figured that Holli had won when I read that.

            But JAYSUS H. KEERIST! He says "I'm gonna wipe the floor with Holli's face" and then saying he wants sleep with her??? And it ends with "Hopefully I can get her pants off tonight?"

            Ugh.

        2. Given HK history I'm betting Holi. That and that fact that they are playing up the whole single (even though the father is around) thing.

          That being said I'm surprised that she even made it to the final. Then again given HK's history...

          1. drum roll ............................ and it's Holli.

              and did you see broken arm dave from last season in the audience? threw me for a minute, lol!

            2. I know this whole show is contrived and I stopped caring a while ago but Holli's win actually brought a tear to my eye... must have been all of the footage of her son...

                her son really was SUCH a cutie!

                I was really glad they didn't drag the finale out to 2 episodes like they did either last season or the one before. :)

                  Yes, that was a mercy, wasn't it?

                  Glad Holli won. The fact that she didn't display the arrogant attitude of Blue Jay (hopefully blue balls, LOL) and Ben indicates she'd be able to accept guidance and continue to become better.

                  That said, do we really think she'll be the CHEF at the Savoy?

                  1. re: coney with everything

                    Well, according to a comment Jason made on his HK FB page re: hooking up with Holli, looks like those blue balls didn't last. @@

                    And no - none of the winners of HK have ever been the "head chef" at any of the GR restaurants.
