Tonight was the end of the longest season in Hell's Kitchen
history. It felt like that, didn't it? Luckily the producers decided to spare us with any more suspense by delivering a one-hour finale that kept moving at a decent clip.
Speaking of clips, that's how it all began, with a quick look back at the highlights of the season, which actually matched many of those we featured here yesterday
. The fights. Raj. The raw food. Raj and more Raj and then it was on menu planning and a final meet-up with Chef Ramsay.
Russell was pensive and anxious to get on with it, but Nona couldn't contain her joy, especially when she realized they were going for a ride in a helicopter. Ramsay said it was a tour of the city that one of them would soon call home, but it was actually a lift to the site of their next challenge -- a head-to-head duel judged by some of the biggest names in the biz.
The helicopter dropped Ramsay and the two chefs at the heliport on top of the J.W. Marriott. With a crowd screaming for them below, Ramsay said it was time for one more surprise, then he handed them both parachutes. Don't you know, Nona had her pack on and was heading for the edge so fast, Ramsay barely had time to stop her. It was a joke but seriously, that girl was ready to take the plunge if it meant being a step closer to that quarter of a million dollar prize.
Here's Nona and Russell meeting their adoring public!
