We should start a betting pool. I wager that Gordon will scream "SHUT IT DOWN!!!" at the 47 minute mark.

I bet that the RIH-ZAH-TOE will be undercooked.

I am leaning towards agreeing with this Salon article. The contestants this year really are poor at best. What was that father even doing there in the first place last week? They could have picked someone off the street who could have done a better job than him!

And I hope this episode isn't 20+ minutes of bitching and smoking outside like last week seemed to be...

She's not, it's a new chick but Scott is back to help call the guy's names so I'm happy.

Shut it down happens at the 42 minute mark.

Why is the losing team always such fuckin sore losers on this show? You lost. Get over it and stop crying about it.


I didn't want to overwhelm you so I just didn't give you anybody's orders.

Hilarious episode. Cannot believe what an idiot Petrozza is. How can you spend hours prepping a menu and not have any idea what you are cooking?

Gordon was a delight to watch. I loved seeing him go off on Petrozza and Jason.

I was surprised that the female dinner guest was so nice about getting hit in the head with a chair.

Jen is probably one of the most annoying female contestants on the show. I am already sick of her trash talking. I was actually hoping Corey's strategy would work for her. But, Sharon did deserve the boot.

As of episode 2, I cannot see a man winning this season.

Oh and he did shut it down around the 46-47 minute mark.

I hope to see the ebonics ghetto girl, the arrogant tall blonde, and the portly misogynist booted soon.

DJ's right. 42 minutes was my guess.

Still no clear favorite for me but I'd be shock if a guy made it to the final 3.

Out of the guys, maybe only Ben and LouRoss haven't been shown as total incompetents yet. . .(though Louross' "make love to the fish" and other comments was weird.)

Well LouRoss is a little weird. I am thinking though that if he chopped off the hair style people would take him more seriously.

What was the deal with the early wake-up to put garbage in those containers? I noticed they had different heights marked off. I thought it might be a competition to see who could collect the most trash. Didn't look like either container had much so maybe they said 'screw it' and just moved on.

I know Gordon was trying to prove a point at how much food they wasted the 1st night, but I agree that I didn't understand the point of the marked containers.

The two best lines of the night were:

"You're not really a chef are you?? You're show just a showgirl with a big feather coming out of your ass!"

"You're like a blond version of Hannibal Lecter with that tongue sticking out of your mouth"

Sharon (?) was pretty pathetic and she was even that hot either

I really like Corey and she's got a cool attitue too

That New Yawk chick is hilarious every time she tawks

One thing Cory made a huge mistake when Ramsay asked her to pick 2 nominates:

“The first nominate is personal reason, blah blah waahaa blah blah…”
“The second nominate is also personal reason, blah blah waahaa blah….”

I mean seriously, she should know that when you go to work, you put your fucking personal ASIDE and work as professional. I’m glad that Ramsay decided not to pick any of Cory’s nominates. What a dumb girl…

Pretty good episode. None of these people seem like they could run a restaurant, but they're sure damn funny. Everyone knows it's all about Gordon belittling them as much as possible. That black chick Jen needs to go, her attitude sucks ass. She should be more like Julia from last season. I love it when Ramsay throws food, like the raw fish.

Wait - didn't that "contest" show which team got to hit the yacht while the other team prepped all the fish?

The trash wasn't the contest. It was cutting the fish and having the most perfectly cut according to Gordon's standards. There was a tie and a weighing contest was the tie-breaker.
