"The Final Two Chefs Compete" Season 3, Episode 10

I have to say, to promote tonight's episode as "the beginning of the end" makes it seem a lot more exciting than it actually was. It seemed to me that tonight's Hell's Kitchen] was a lot of fluff - a waste of an hour that could have been more wisely invested in a longer season finale. It was just hard to get into the competitive spirit when we knew no one would be leaving Hell's Kitchen. But if Rock thinks "homegirl can beat him" next week, he should think twice. While I am fairly certain that Rock has this competition in the bag, Bonnie continually surprises me. And at the Green Valley Resort & Spa cook-off, Bonnie really made a reputation for herself amongst Vegas' elite. But I'm getting ahead of myself.... What really confused me tonight was the restaurant design challenge. Usually this is a whole-night affair (which I'm hoping it will be next week), but tonight we merely saw the very beginning of the design process. We did get a hint that Bonnie's restaurant would be simple, classic European while Rock's is going to be more of a Southern "make-yourself-at-home" kind of establishment. I love how when Rock suggested jeans for his wait staff's ensemble, Jean Philippe dismissed it as something you would only see at a saloon. Very true indeed. But it bothered me immensely that we never got to see this part of the challenge come to fruition. They should have just left this part of the episode until next week! Meanwhile, Bonnie and Rock flew into Las Vegas, where they were confronted with quite a surprise - preparing an impromptu dish for seven VIP guests starring none other than Robin Leach (of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous!), Michael Ray and Heather West, who you may remember as Season 1 and Season 2 winners. Not so shabby, especially when you factor in that the deciding vote was cast by none other than the manager and executive chef of the Green Valley Resort & Spa itself. And while I thought Rock would be a surefire winner with his fried chicken and crab cake (which pretty much sounds like it would be my favorite meal of all time), Bonnie once again proved she is a force to be reckoned with. Perhaps the best moment of the night was when the last six eliminated chefs returned to Hell's Kitchen (sadly not including Cowboy Aaron). It was fun watching them pick teams amongst past rivalries and past friends. It will be interesting to see what happens next week as Rock takes on Bonnie!
