Five contestants have been kicked out of Hell's Kitchen as of now. They are in order of episodes: Josh, J, Lacey, Louie and Nilka. Out of all of them, Josh and Nilka were the only ones to return. The reason for them are as follows: Josh: Overcooked a risotto and wasting cooked pasta that wasn't even ordered. J: Overcooked rice for both teams and overcooked scallops. Lacey: Overcooked lamb and admitted to not being able to cook meat. Louie: Used all the lamb in the blue kitchen and cutting it the wrong way. Nilka: Serving raw lobster. See more »
Two teams compete for an ultimate prize, but this isn't "Survivor" or "The Apprentice".
The prize is a restaurant for the winner to operate. And Chef Ramsay isn't a mere host like Jeff Probst, nor a hands-off boss like Donald Trump. He's with the contestants all evening, as they attempt to operate their restaurant, "Hell's Kitchen". He serves as the order co-coordinator, with final say on whether dishes are presentable. And if one dish in an order isn't acceptable, back the whole order goes. He grating and foul-mouthed, and almost brings the contestants to tears. He's more drill instructor than chef at times, berating those who aren't performing well. Customers aren't immune to Ramsay's temper; he'll yell and curse at patrons who dare to "speak to the chef".
You feel so bad for those getting the brunt of Ramsay's wrath; you want to look away, but you can't. It's an interesting twist to the elimination-style "reality" show.
