Hell's Kitchen winner-Spoiler

I think the right person won

How many "winners" have kept their posts at Ramsay's restaurants? that would be interesting to know

I haven't watched all the episodes this season. they are pretty much unbearable and honestly quite boring

good for scott tho-he maintained his dignity as far as I could see

  1. The question I'm always left with... is how do they pick the chefs that come back to be part of the brigade? Joy was noticeably absent. ... I also didn't remember Chris at all.

      I always wonder how they get so many chefs who -can- come back. Do they tape the finale on a Monday? Otherwise you'd think a few employers would be kind of pissy about their workers taking yet another day off work to come back to the show.

      1. re: ennuisans

        In HK I don't think there is the big delay between the competition and the finale like there is in Top Chef where everyone goes home for like a month and can study and prepare before coming back to an exotic location. So, I'm guessing all the contestants are already there sequestered in the hotel so as to not give away the winner. I would imagine they sign off on the finale in their contract and get some sort of time/appearance fee.

    2. Having someone on each team with an ax to grind is mandatory?? Can't remember names... 2 blonde women. Scott sent the "whiney" one packing early... a good move. Other guy SHOULD have sent his "boat anchor" out the same door as soon as it was painfully obvious she was dragging her feet and really didn't CARE if he won.

      Do other contestants get "anything" just for participating... other than the experience? If so, maybe Joy figured she didn't have a chance and they made her have this dramatic exit?

      1. I was very happy to see Scott win. I was a fan of his from early on.

          Ya he seems like he could actually run a GR restaurant.
          The other dude was mentally unhinged half the time.

          1. re: Puffin3

            I agree about Scott's management skills. I also have to add that his kids were really cute and very nicely dressed.

        2. I like Scott but he threw the homeless person out of his kitchen. Doesn't seem very politically correct...but she's whacked.

          1. re: Worldwide Diner

            I think throwing her out sealed the deal for him

            1. re: Worldwide Diner

              Maybe that's why she's (maybe) homeless.
              She could always add a 'chefs apron' to her pole dancing gig.

            2. The thing I liked about Scott is that even tho he had a lot of screw ups early on, he was always very supportive of his fellow contestants. How many times did we see him hugging and encouraging teammates, even when he was on the women's team and they were out to get him? He seems like a mature, class act.
