Did You Know?


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 »

Fun at an entertainment point of view. INCREDIBLY DUMB at an kitchen point of view however.
26 July 2015 | by nick-monktonSee all my reviews

I firmly believe that Seasons 2-6 are enjoyable for everyone to watch but the show's downward spiral has been immanent since Season 9. First of all, Gordon does a lot of stupid things you would never do in a kitchen, I can forgive getting up and shouting right in people's faces and dismissing them halfway through service due to putting in a terrible performance and sending them to the pantry and warning them to get their act together. It's when he makes stupid-ass decisions you would NEVER make if you were him.

Gordon has inexplicably eliminated contestants over contestants who absolutely 200% should've been sent home and this isn't a rare occurrence this happens at least 2-3 times every season. Some of the worst examples include Elsie over Jessica, Virginia over Garrett, Sara and Keith Shayna over Matt/Rosann, Bobby over Jen, Benjamin over Jason, Emily over Melissa Don(k)ey, Amanda over Carrie, Jamie over Carrie and Elise, Natalie,Elizabeth and Jennifer over Elise, Patrick over Tiffany, Robyn over Kimmie and Brian, Christian over Jeremy/Danielle, Dan over Michael and Anthony over Zach, Gabriel over Richard, Ashley over Aaron, Fernando, Sterling and especially Santos over Roe, Christine over Sarah, Josh over Alison and Milly coming in 4th place whilst Michelle came in 3rd place seemingly only because Milly made some mistakes on the final black jacket service.

It gets more stupid in the dinner services as Gordon very often throws a whole team out the kitchen when mistakes are coming off ONE station and ONE station only or an INCREDIBLY small minority of the team is making mistakes, you CAN'T do that in a professional kitchen as it's the equivalent of throwing in the towel. Starting from Season 4, Gordon has (once a season or two) forced a contestant (or two/three or even the entire team on two occasions by no fault of the majority's own) to entirely eat a poorly prepared food rather than telling them to taste it and move it. Starting from Season 2, Gordon would sometimes take a contestant to the pantry as a way of warning them to wake up and for the majority of the time, he used it well. Starting from Season 13 however, Gordon would take the WHOLE TEAM to the pantry rather than the one/two individual(s) screwing up and inexplicably telling them to have a meeting, he did this twice before in Season 10 and 12 but it was nowhere near as stupid and common as this.

It gives me reasons to assume that Gordon is deliberately doing these stupid things for certain reasons. 1. Gordon has developed an ego where he thinks that "Well it's my kitchen, my show so I can do whatever I want with these people." 2. He just wants to please his audiences by doing this as it can be very entertaining 3. It is a ratings ploy by FOX who are telling him to deliberately do these stupid things 4. Gordon just doesn't know how to make a right decision 5. He's does these moronic things he is now doing in Hell's Kitchen to make the contestant screwing up feel even worse for what they did. Whatever it is, Gordon really needs to bring the show back to it's Season 1-5/6 roots.
