Tonight on Hell's Kitchen, it's the playoffs, sort of, because there are only four chefs remaining - loud mouth Tennille, downward spiral Ariel, one-handed Dave, and self-proclaimed Mr. Consistency but overcooked the rice Kevin. They are given a mini-pep talk by Felix Light, the so-called mini-me of Gordon Ramsay. The challenge was to prepare 80 vegetarian entrees to serve 80 people. There is a twist, and let's just say their guests aren't exactly fond of veggies.
Come dinner service, something tragic happens to Dave's hand, and a surprise twist that will hopefully shock everyone.
On the last episode of Hell's Kitchen
, Suzanne finally got eliminated, to the delight of, well, everyone. Early on the episode, there was animosity between Dave and Tennille, because they agreed to nominate Suzanne and Ariel, but in front of Chef Ramsay, Tennille changed his mind and put Van on the chopping block instead.
With the five chefs remaining, though, it was time for the first individual challenge, and it's presentation that's the name of the game. Then something weird happened. Dave, who for the longest time had been talking in front of the camera and therefore millions of people, admitted that he had trouble talking to a crowd - only there was no crowd, only some magazine people. Suzanne's "piece of art" didn't win, neither did Tennille's broken fish. In the end, it was a close fight between Dave and Ariel, and ... both of them won.
Come service time, Ramsay was obviously pumped, with the supposed five best chefs onboard. At one point, Tennille called Dave an idiot. And then there were: overcooked risotto, weird scallops, more overcooked risotto because of Kevin (who had been all uppity the whole episode), pink, bloody chicken (literally), and the worst dinner service in a very long time.
