Last night, we got a double dose of Hell’s Kitchen. On the first episode…
Chef Ramsay brought in some pigs (that we thankfully didn’t see get slaughtered) to kick off a pork-dish challenge. Maria and Scott helped lose it for the red team by making a soup garnished with ham, when pork was supposed to be the main ingredient. The red team had to scrub squealing pigs. The blue team got a day at a spa.
Then we got the show’s first-ever barbeque. Nilka immediately messed up by frying half of the chicken. Ramsay rejected Siobhan’s raw burgers, and the red team lost. They nominated Maria and Nilka for elimination. Maria was sent home.
On the second episode…
Nilka, understandably, started out sour. The challenge was to create unique dishes from five sauces and 20 ingredients. Fran impressed Ramsay with pasta and oysters. Ramsay chewed out Salvatore for his risotto.
Ramsay brought in his mother and wife to help judge, and we got a tie. Ramsay gave the win to the blue team, who got treated to tea and an English afternoon. The red team cleaned kitchens.
The second challenge was family night, and Ramsay had to control his famously foul mouth in front of the children. He actually scolded Nilka for cursing in front of the kids. The red team lost for serving the kids crappy chicken, and bad roast beef. Scott and Fran were put up for elimination. Fran was sent home.
In other news…Lady Gaga makes Jerry Seinfeld gag, and Dr. Murray may have been drunk when he killed MJ (allegedly)
Jerry Seinfeld isn’t happy that the singer watched a Mets game from his private box after her bird-flipping meltdown two weeks ago. On New York sports radio, Jerry said, “This woman’s a jerk. I hate her. I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for. You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?”
Jerry added, “I wish her the best. You take one ‘A’ off of that and you’ve got gag. I don’t know what these young people think or how they promote their careers.”
In a legal document obtained by TMZ, Michael Jackson‘s father Joe claims Doctor Conrad Murray was boozing at an L.A. strip club hours before he allegedly gave the pop star a lethal dose of Propofol. The document is a prelude to a wrongful death suit. Murray’s lawyers say the allegations are “nonsense” — the good doctor doesn’t drink.
