I finally got to see an episode! (I usually work the 4AM shift on Tuesdays, so I’ve missed most of them thus far).
The celebrity sighting must be next week shrug
The only one I find anywhere near likeable is Virginia. Hard to say who has more chops, her or Heather.
Rachel? Please. I’ve known cooks like her, cooks who have the talent/drive, but who, for some reason, screw everything up during service. In Rachel’s case, I think it was her ego more than anything else that did her in. And WTF with the lying? To Gordon, of all people?!? You just don’t do things like that in ANY kitchen.
I don’t trust Sara for an instant. I kept mouthing “You snarky f-ing bitch” everytime she was on. Plus I don’t find the farting funny at all.
For some reason I feel compelled to explain something overall about this show:
If you’re already a chef/cook or in the food service biz, you’ll sit there shaking your head not only because of the familiarity, but also because it’s asinine to presume that anyone NOT in the biz can win this competition. Remember Michael from last year? He was already a professional cook.
If you’re not any of the above, it’ll destroy any illusions you have about the business. As cranky as Gordon is, his type, unfortunately, is a driving force in a lot of kitchens.
