Hell's Kitchen Recap: Taste It, Make It, Say Bye Bye
Recap and Commentary By RTVC Staff Writer Rebecca Moatz

The jig is up.
Finally! Whoo hoo! Now the real competition can begin, instead of the side show Robyn had been creating all season.
The first Black Jacket event on Hell’s Kitchen last night began with a challenge to test the remaining six competitors’ pallets as well as their teamwork skills.
The Taste It, Now Make It challenge was a creative way to begin weeding out those with the potential to be Head Chef in one of Chef Ramsay’s restaurants from those who shouldn’t quit their day jobs just yet.
Three teams of two went to work to replicate and recreate one of Chef Ramsay’s signature dishes.
The most interesting of the pairings were Clemenza and Dana, who won the challenge, in part, because of Clemenza’s incredible nose.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
He was the only one out of the six remaining competitors who was easily able to determine that the wine that was used in Chef Ramsay’s dish was Madeira, not Port wine, and Ramsay was quite impressed.
So was I.
While Clemenza may not be the strongest performer out of the six, he is often the one who saves the day by using certain strengths that seem to have escaped the others.
The challenge was no exception, and he and Dana were able to enjoy a day of food, fun, jet skis, and sun while the remaining four chefs were working their fingers to the bone doing one menial task after another.
Even worse, it is James who is running last night’s community service program for the wayward chefs who had lost their latest challenge, which loosely translates to: James will be using the other four competitors for slave labor all day.
While Dana and Clemenza race each other across Silver Lake in top-of-the-line jet skis, the losing four are scrubbing walls, polishing flatware and ironing linens.
Justin is really letting loose lately since Brian left. It almost seems like he is regressing into the same whiny, adolescent fever that Brian was suffering from as he now begins pitching a fit about having to iron.
Justin, I have a news flash for you, men do iron, dear.
Like a well-seasoned parent, James then decided that Justin would have the privilege of ironing men’s shirts instead of the tablecloths he was going on about.
