Guest blogger John-John Williams IV reports:
After Rosann and Louross made much needed exists, Hell's Kitchen is now down to six contenders.
The hopefuls include:
Bobby has a big mouth. He's always using some type of military metaphor for his leadership ability. With that said, he is a leader. And he doesn't make a lot of mistakes.
Christina has a tendency to be frazzled during high-pressure situations. She's also formed a pseudo-alliance with Corey, which is kind of surprising because the two were at each other's throats in the beginning of the season.
Corey is the Alexis Carrington of Hell's Kitchen. She's pure evil. Take her behavior during Rosann's elimination a couple weeks ago. She totally threw Rosann under the bus when Ramsay asked her opinion of her struggling teammate. "I never want to work with her ever again in a kitchen service," Corey said. (Dang! Corey did not hold back.)
Petrozza is a bit of a wild card. He shows flashes of brilliance. But he can drop the ball on occasion. (He tried to serve unwashed lettuce last episode. Yuck!) He is one of the few competitors left who agonizes over eliminating other competitors. (Good luck with that…)
Where do I begin with Jen? She's talented, extremely self-assured and bossy as all get out. The other contestants hate her. And she doesn't seem to care.
Matt has the worst luck of any Hell's Kitchen competitor I can remember. In the season opener he made Gordon Ramsay sick after consuming his "exotic tar-tar." He was switched over to the women's team after the men lost all respect for him. Just when I thought that things were finally starting to look up for him, a disastrous dinner service will never allow me to look at puttonesca the same way again. (He chopped the tip of his finger off, and it appeared that it got mixed up with the food. Last episode, Ramsay chewed him out because his dish was salty because he sweated into it. (Beyond disgusting!)
Who is your money on? I kind of like Bobby and Corey. Both have done a pretty good job so far. I'm not thrilled with either of them personally, but they seem to have the goods to go all the way.
