Hell's Kitchen: No Animals Were Hurt Except The Ones We Ate
Recap and Commentary By RTVC Staff Writer Rebecca Moatz

Who's the girl now?
Loud and early wake up calls seem to be the theme in this season of Hell’s Kitchen, only this time it wasn’t a cat fight that got the contestants up and moving.
Instead they were subjected to barking dogs running through their dorms, rushed into donning overalls and informed they were going to visit a farm.
But that wasn’t the real surprise. Told they were going to get close to the ingredients, I envisioned the team members harvesting some vegetables or even milking a cow, not chasing sheep.
Regardless of how insane some of Chef Ramsay’s little field trips may appear, most of them are planned to foster teamwork.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Can someone please tell me how running after spray-painted sheep and pulling pink ribbons from around their necks achieves that?
Yes, it was a competition that set some of the ground rules for the next challenge, but there was no teamwork involved with this exercise.
The only thing it accomplished was the creation of an ingredient list that all of the aspiring chefs would have to use to prepare four different lamb dishes.
Some may argue that it was a very creative way to set the stage for the challenge, and it certainly was entertaining to watch, but I found it to be a little over the top.
And I don’t think the sheep liked it either.
Think about from the sheep’s point of view. “Some fool spray-painted my wool and placed a pink ribbon around my neck. The next thing I know, all these crazy people in overalls are chasing us around and ripping the ribbons right back off of our necks. And then, they turn around and wash off the paint right back off of me!”
Pretty soon we are going to start seeing one of those disclaimers that read, “No animals were harmed during filming except the ones we cooked and ate.”
After exchanging their overalls for chef jackets, the challenge was finally under way, but quickly interrupted by screams.
Guy cut his hand, but to hear the sounds coming out of his mouth, one would think he cut his hand off. Who’s the girl now, Guy?
However, since most of the contestants were competing in teams, Justin covered beautifully and as a result, he and Guy still managed to win a point for the Blue Team with their rack of lamb.
Of course, it was the easiest point scored since Barbie and Robyn’s lamb was raw.
