Hell's Kitchen Spring 2014 season spoilers

I'm too lazy to start a new post every week. So let's just bitch and moan here for the rest of this season.

For the reward challenge, each team is required to make 10 plates of some kind of filled pasta, was it ravioli with lobster? Gordo puts Mike, DeMarco and Gabriel as one group on the men's team, thereby dooming the men's team. Sure enough, the men get off to a good start by putting up 5 good plates before the women even plated 1. But the women's system caught them up. Tied at 9-9, the 3 stooges finally puts up their first plate, which predictably sucked. The women swoop in and won...I really don't want to see any of these men or women in a bathing suit....please stop the flesh showing rewards!!!

The women actually finished their dinner service and then went to help the men. Jason, the anger management issue guy, crossed the line but at least he knew it - did he shove a woman or something? Whatever. Men lose, I think they put up DeMarco and Mike. DeMarco says he's not worse than Mike - even if true, he's not better by much. Gordo then boots Mike - who goes out with middle finger blazing.

Prior to being booted, Mike offered to move to the women's team, to their horror!

  1. I am intrigued my Anton's voice. He's like a cartoon muppet voice. So I vote for him to win.

      I can't imagine any if them winning.

      And hope any Big Love is off camera.

    2. Lol, I forgot that Mike the Jersey douchey-boy had H!K tattooed on the back of his neck.

      I think the men's team still need to get rid of Ralph and Gabriel (DeMarco got the boot despite the fact that he came out and said he was abandoned by his father - actually I'm not sure if his father abandoned him or his mother). On the women's team, Beth has to go. Frankly, no one stands out on either team.

        I was looking for a recap this evening and stumbled upon an interview with Bev from the ladies team.
        http://blogs.ocweekly.com/stickaforki...

        She actually has some serious cooking chops/experience working for Milliken and Feniger at BorderGrill.

        I really haven't cared enough about this cast to look into anyone's background, but she might be the one to beat.

        1. re: Firegoat

          I think she acknowledged that she was the oldest on her team. I think she can hold her own but she could freak out under pressure.

          1. re: Worldwide Diner

            It looks like Beth is a year older than Bev according to wikipedia. Beth hasn't impressed me at all. I keep remembering the creepy way she was hitting on the old dude.

              1. re: C. Hamster

                I think it's odd several people have commented on her being "old" when at least 3 other women are right at about the same age. Kind of makes you wonder if it was stunt casting for her to "act" old.

        2. re: Worldwide Diner

          DeMarco probably should've gone postal. First he reveals that he was abandoned by his father and that he wanted to make something of himself as a form revenge. His team-mates cheers him on and then put him up for elimination because they think he sucks, not in this particularly challenge, but overall. Way to crush a dream.

          1. re: Worldwide Diner

            DeMarco reminded me of Dana -- always SHOUTING in the interviewie thingies

            1. re: C. Hamster

              there's always someone who HAS to shout. :)

        3. So far no one is standing out. Glad DeMarco got the boot - I couldn't decide if he just didn't have the experience to be there or if he was getting a bad deal from his team mates.
          I'd be happy to see Beth go, the rest of the women seem OK. Beth sure did crumble under pressure on last night's episode.

          1. Were "Parker" and "Joanna" actors or did real people make the questionable choice to get married at 8 in the morning in an "exclusive" ceremony in Hell's Kitchen?

                I think a lot of times people getting married on reality tv are actually getting married.... just do this for the publicity, to be on TV. It isn't their actual ceremony, they do that another day off site, but have this to make their wedding kind of a destination fun wedding. I mean, if you were invited, how fun would that be?

                1. re: Firegoat

                  Some one on the HK production crew had a friend who was getting married. The producers offered them an 'appearance fee'. This was enough to pay for the 'real wedding' happening in the fall.

                  1. re: Puffin3

                    They gave her good lighting and makeup, who wouldn't take that deal?

                    Although I bet they all went to Waffle House afterward..... or wished they did.

            1. Beth talks about possibly losing her house and the lack of advancement opportunities in the Deep South because she's a woman. She earns some sympathy but not enough to avoid the boot. The editing seems unusually cruel this season, as it shows the remaining chefs kicking the dog when it's down.

              Keisha says she's not dumb or stupid, just "flustrated." I guess she's not more stupid than a former vice presidential candidate for making up words.

              Anton was smart being the rover. I don't know what Melanie wa mocking him for.

                I have been using "flustrated" a lot today.

                It's awesome!

                  Anton's voice still entertains me. I could listen to his talking heads all day
