Hells Kitchen 8/9 - possible spoilers and Wolfgang Puck

Didn't see a topic started for this week's episodes...

Amid the usual mayhem and name calling Gordo brought in a guest celebrity Chef to judge the day's team challenge. We were a little surprised to see Chef Puck descend the stairs. I thought he was pretty funny, without being too mean to the contestants, telling them all at the end to "keep working". Something they clearly all need. ;)

DH and I wondered why Chef Puck is appearing lately on so many programs... I saw him a couple weeks ago on NFNS, now HK... I think I read he was on something else? Does his tv career need a boost or something?

as far as the "competition" blah, blah, blah the usual silliness... we keep hoping Elise will get bounced and somehow she never does! she's like a slinky on an escalator - just keeps slinkin along. 0_o

  1. I was ready to see Jonathan go home last night. I liked him at first, but his schtick got old fast. Not to mention skipping out on all the prep work and constantly throwing everyone else under the bus.
    I still pick Will to win the whole thing. He competed on "Chopped" and hasn't been shown really screwing up anything yet.

      I too was ready to see Jonathan out! he was a train wreck.

      I thought Will looked familiar, thanks for helping me place where I'd seen him before. He has been consistently flying under the radar, which on HK is a good thing! :)

      1. re: jujuthomas

        According to Wikipedia he was on the 9th episode of season one and was elimated after the dessert round.

        1. re: Firegoat

          he went really far, then.

          It's funny, I don't remember specific dishes necessarily, but I do remember seeing the ingredient combos that are described.

    2. All I want to to know is whether they found elise at a strip club, the welfare office, smoking crack in back alley, or in a psych ward.

        Come on, you really need to go there?

        1. re: kpaxonite

          remember that blonde girl last season that called everyone "bitches"? She's way more Ghetto than Elise.

          1. re: pitagirl

            That girl wasn't quite so ghetto towards the end of the show, which made me think it was all an act. I gave her plenty of grief last season, now it's time to rag on Elise.

            1. re: pitagirl

              That dope with the crooked glasses?

          2. Wolfgang seems to be appearing on every reality cooking show. Only a matter of time before he be appearing at a Jersey Shore cook out.

              has he been on any "Real Housewives", like Hubert Keller and Susan Feniger? It's a toss up between that and Jersey Shore--which would be the most degrading?

              1. re: coney with everything

                Well Elise kind of reminds me of Snooki.....

            2. this season is so bad - so bad that they shouldnt have even bothered

              but then again, how can you top last season, except for the obese one winning. i mean, we get it, she likes food but obviously she will eat anything

                Really what changes with that show?

                Gordon gets them up early.

                Gordon yells and demeans them during a challenge.

                Gordon hangs out and bonds with the winning team.

                Gordon manages to use the work bollocks several times

                Gordon starts yelling again at them during the dinner service.

                Gordon calls someone a donkey and throws some food against the wall.
