Are you suggesting Rock and Bonnie are paid actors?

The execution of the meals seems pretty unscripted to me.
post #4 of 21
Well I bet Rock will win but I honestly can't see either of them winning. The only one I really wanted to win was Julia.

I can't imagine either of them doing a good job as a head chef. At least Bonnie can be trained. Rock has too much attitude and there is too much that is beneath him. I also think he's basically lazy. That isn't a winning attitude for an exec chef to have. Slipshod flows downhill.

No, But the props and cussing are inexcusable. Cooking dried pasta per order ??? If it were fresh made pasta then OK. Scripted, What do you think ? It's a joke. Just like most (reality tv).

Good points, I'm going to have to say Rock though, I think he was being lazy to let the other guys dig a grave for themselves and get kicked off. Rock having retaurant experience would do better at running the retaurant than Bonnie :beer:

I gotta agree with one of the above posters. I was actually kinda rooting for Julia, but after she got kicked off, i was rooting for Jen. I think Jen would've made a MUCH better chef than Rock. I don't like Rock's attitude.

Rock will win this one tho.. imho, he's got it in the bag, unfortunately.

A chef I used to work for worked with Ramsay when he was at La Gavroche. He says that's pretty much what he's like in a kitchen. So, at least that much is real.

Julia? Come on, she didn't even know what Ahi Tuna was.
post #11 of 21
I always felt it was Rocks to lose. Personally I thought that Rock and Julia should be co-winners. Rock does the food and Julia runs the kitchen. The only thing Julia lacked was formal culinary training and for the morons that got tossed to denigrate her because oohhh she didn't even know what a french term was, or didn't know what Fois Gras was..... give me a break! Neither did they once upon a time. As far as "Rock being lazy", I don't know. All the others were such drama queens that the focus was on them so you never really saw much from Rock. Yet he never got called out for being short of anything so he must have been doing something right.

Besides, none of them actually get a kitchen. They will work under real Exec.s and learn and one day may truly be Exec's.

In a way Julis IS the winner.
If GR puts her through school, as he said he will, she won big.
She deserves it too.

Actually, we did cook dry pasta to order for a while... it is feasible, as long as it's not insanely busy.

Yes Julia may have had absent spots in her knowledge but her basic skills were incredible:

1. She was organized
2. She could multi-task
3. She didn't get flustered often
4. She didn't have an attitude
5. She learned quickly

When I noticed Rock being lazy is when they would lose and have a task, he would always get other people to do that work. He wasn't into doin manual labor. But then again, maybe that didn't make him lazy, maybe it just made him smarter than the average bear! lol. It just seemed like he didn't pull his weight.

Angle Hair/Feddilini ? What do yopu call insanely busy? We do 3-400 covers nightly and more on the weekends.

Everything from pappardelle to fettucine to penne and angel hair (it had reverted back to the blanched stuff... I'm not the chef and I never asked him why he had done so). Considering the large ravioli take approximately ten minutes anyways, as long as you keep on track of things, eh.

Well, as long as we're not having a stupid pissing contest, since I was neither owner nor chef I never counted how many covers we got, but we do seat over two hundred, so on a busy late weekday we could probably hit at least 400 covers.

I've cooked risotto to order, and yes angel hair or cappelini to order,
and yes 250 to 375pp per night......it's possible and feasible.....I
wouldn't put down anyone who precooked risotto or angel hair....I
just feel its a shortcut I wouldn't take, especially in an Italian concept.
No worries.....

If a chef needs to cry on cue and flirt, then Bonnie, but of the last two contestants, hopefully Rock will win! He appears to have the "chef-talents" down pat. Did I miss something, cuz even though Julie didn't win, didn't Chef Ramsey tell her at her elimination that he would personally pay for her to attend Culinary School? I liked her work ethic and gumption and common sense approach and think she'll go far and she's a definite winner in my book!
post #19 of 21
ehhh, i TOLD you Rock would win. AND he deserved to.
post #20 of 21
He almost didn't deserve to win, because he was stupid not to pick Julia for his team. She could have made his crab cakes for him, and it would have been a slam dunk.

I wonder if that Josh guy could even make a grilled cheese without burning it. He was so bad I wonder if the whole show wasn't set up.

Im gunna have to say Julia.... I'd work under her any day! :roll: I'd have to say that they both got a kick *** prize's already, lots of air time with their faces all over the TV... now if they use that to their advantage's is a different story!

I have cooked dryed pasta to order as well in a 200 turn over rest. I made it fresh at the begining of the week then slow dried it for 12 hours...... big pain in the *** when the dough mix ain't right to start off with.... had to come up with my own formula in order for it not to turn into dust!
