Last week, “Hell’s Kitchen” started off an epic two-part episode by going in a direction we never expected the show to go in — high fashion. There was a runway right smack in the middle of the dining room, and the teams had to actually time out their food with the beginning and the end of some shows from some top designers.
While the show did a great job trying to make this service into the most dramatic ones of the season, it actually wasn’t so bad — as a matter of fact, no one was even thrown out of the kitchen. This is even when you consider that Clemenza botched more scallops than we can count on our two hands, and when Robyn briefly considered getting someone on her team to steal some beef from the boys. The only brief distraction came when Guy spent so much time staring at the models that he nearly set a skillet on fire.
Unfortunately, not even the best service of the season overall could save the disaster known as the blue team. They lost in a close battle thanks to slowing down , and it put Clemenza in some pretty hot water to be sent home. Every single member of his team promptly threw him under the bus for his bad service, but Gordon Ramsay saw straight threw it. For one of the first times all season, he really looked at the chefs’ cumulative performances, and decided to sent Guy home instead. Was it a shame? Sure, mostly because Guy was incredibly entertaining to watch.`
What do you think about Ramsay keeping Clemenza — even though just about every member of his team wanted him gone?
