Hell's Kitchen: Hot Tempers And Cold Wellingtons
Recap and Commentary By RTVC Staff Writer Rebecca Moatz
June 12, 2012
The men were not doing any better with the Cobb salads after Royce decided to put mushrooms on them. Who puts mushrooms on a Cobb salad? Especially someone who is already employed as a chef?
Perhaps the fact that he is already employed as a chef is the problem. Royce has already developed bad habits in another kitchen, and by the time he figures out which ones to break, heíll be fresh out of breaks from Chef Ramsay.
Thankfully Guy and Clemenza took over and got it right, but then Clemenza turned around and ruined the pizza.
How does someone who used to own a pizzeria screw up pizza? Itís absolutely mind-boggling.
By the time Brianís sliders were brought up raw, I was actually feeling embarrassed for the Blue Team.
While Patrick was able to get them right, it was a feeble victory, since the Red Team was already down to two tickets by that time.
Now the resentments among the Blue Team had piled up higher than a stack of pancakes and spilled out onto the Red Team who had come over to help them finish their service.
It must have felt humiliating to accept help from their opponents who beat them once again.
While the ladies were off to a San Diego safari in Chef Ramsayís private jet, the men are sent to work as loggers.
Justin got the point of the exercise, that if the men can work together as a team to take down a giant tree, they should be able to function as a unit in the kitchen.
However, Patrickís self-appointed leadership leaves a lot to be desired. As Guy aptly pointed out, Patrick does not lead by example; he delegates.
And when Patrick took that attitude back into the kitchen, things were getting done, but Patrick wasnít doing much of it, and the tension that resulted couldnít be cut with a steak knife.
Then Ramsay did what he does best, make things harder. Each team lost a member when he selected Tiffany and Don to work as wait staff.
Okay, I get it. Tiffany and Don were going to find out firsthand how an inept kitchen staff can make the waiterís life hell outside the kitchen.
However, when you have two teams already struggling, itís not a good idea to make each of those teams a member short.
And why did he choose Tiffany and Don? Why not choose someone who is making the bulk of the mistakes to get his point across?
