June 11, 2007: A Food-preparation Challenge Season 3, Episode 2

First off, I wrote a lot of things about Aaron that I just deleted because I felt awful that he appears to be suffering some sort of stress-related medical condition in addition to constant harassment from Chef Ramsay. I will, however, say that his running around introducing himself to the diners was truly idiotic. If there's anything we know irritates Chef Ramsay, it's doing absolutely anything that isn't a direct order. Add to the mess the fact that Aaron's deboning the fish table-side took 15 minutes, and I feel a little less awful. With sweat pouring down his face, nonetheless. That has got to be some sort of health hazard! However, at the same time I keep seeing flashes of that ambulance from the Season 3 preview and Chef Ramsay screaming "don't die on me," and I have a terrible feeling that might be Aaron-related. So I'll be nicefor now. It was nice seeing the girls' team come together this week after being dubbed "Hell's Bitches" last week. Melissa, Joanna and Waffle House Julia certainly proved their worth on the fish challenge. And when the boys got kicked out of the kitchen and the girls still managed to keep their cool, it was no surprise the boys would be losing a team member this week. But there's one girl I can't let off the hook just yet. Why, why, why did Bonnie strut around in her underwear in the living quarters? Not exactly a good first impression. As for the boys, when eliminations came down to Eddie and Josh, I was shocked that Aaron wasn't on the chopping block. I know Eddie and Josh made their fair share of mistakes, but Aaron has virtually messed up everything he's been asked to do since entering Hell's Kitchen. I always feel boys tend to be fairer in eliminations because they seem less likely to factor friendships, alliances and emotions into their decisions, but I can't think of one reason why Aaron is still around. Maybe he's being kept around for entertainment's sake? I guess we'll see! One last thing to note: Beef Wellington, spaghetti and risotto are Hell's Kitchen staples. Every season the chefs prepare these and every season someone seems to get it wrong. You'd think if you were going to sign up for the show, you'd do some prep work and master those three dishes! I know cooking even the most simple of meals is a struggle with Chef Ramsay breathing down your neck, being called a "donkey," and having to compete with all of those type-A personalities, but seriously. Should spaghetti even be included in a challenge? How can these people not cook spaghetti? Diver scallops I get. Dover sole, fine. But spaghetti? Really?! All in all a great second episode. Let me know what you guys think of the season so far! Find video from Hell's Kitchen in our Online Video Guide. show less
