July 2, 2007: A Wedding Reception at the Restaurant Season 3, Episode 5

First of all, I can't believe there are only seven chefs left. This season is flying by so quickly! Secondly, I feel bad for the boys' team; they hadn't won anything until tonight and they don't even have Melissa, Jen or Bonnie to slow them down. I was so happy for the men to finally win and have some time to relax. Also, for the bride and groom's sake, it's probably for the best that the men weren't left to the decorating! Now, on to the challenge. How fun did that supermarket shopping look? It reminded me of sitting at home on summer break from school watching Supermarket Sweep with my sister. Seriously, it used to be my dream to charge down the aisles cramming food into my shopping cart while racing against the clock. And finally, the gang got outside of Hell's Kitchen for some fresh air! But back in the kitchen, Melissa seemed to have forgotten she's a contestant, and took over the role of Chef Ramsay. I don't know why these girls continue to pick on poor Julia, but I think it's obvious (to the rest of us, anyway) that she is the strongest competitor, and I was thrilled that Chef Ramsay stepped in and put Melissa in her place. Enter the bride and groom. My first thought was, "I hope they're not big fans of beef Wellington because apparently nobody in the kitchen knows how to cook it." And when Melissa said her food wasn't ready to be served wow. It probably was ready before Melissa forced Julia's duck back into the oven to be burnt to a crisp. But at least Chef Ramsay gave her hell all night about it. I still can't get over the fact that he isn't harping over Jen and the garbage-spaghetti. (I promise this is the last time I'll mention it, it just still kills me!) I don't know what it was about Melissa tonight, but she really fell apart. From trying to dictate the women's team to attempting to borrow sauce from the men, it was just one giant mess after another. And while I like to give the contestants the benefit of the doubt (well, sort of) due to the stress that they're under, Melissa is a whole different species. I'm just dying to see this one go already! During eliminations, my first thought was, "Thank god the women's team lost so we don't have to endure one more week of Melissa." But alas, Chef Ramsay turned the tables - yet again - and saved Melissa by throwing her on the men's team. So Melissa gets one more chance and there are still seven contestants. I guess the season isn't moving so quickly after all. I just can't wait until next week to see Rock and Melissa battle it out on the same team!
